    Linda, You are another one of those amazing people who accomplish so much. I really admire you and thank you for taking the time to share you projects with us.

    LOL, if only we were as good at finishing our UFOs as we are at starting them. I have a couple that are calling to me soooooooo loudly, but I put in ear plugs till I get the Seasonal Greens quilt and the kaleidascope quilt done. I want to play with the plaids so badly I can hardly stand it, but so far I'm resisting.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    I've really missed seeing all your finishes the last couple of months, but I think I am caught up now. Some really great work!

    O.K. Now that I am retiring I will have time to finish those UFOs. My last day at work is June 25. I will have to change my name from Notimetoquilt to something else. I went on a quilt retreat for 4 days a couple of weeks ago and brought some UFO's. I now have 3 quilts ready for quilting. I am going to an in-town retreat next weekend and will try to get two more UFOs ready for quilting. My aim is to get three UFOs completely done before I start a new project.

    Nice job Notimetoquilt. Congrats on the retiring. They say though that you are busy when you retire than when you actually had a job.

    I finally have a finish for this month I remembered to photo. I have done four so far, the rice bag, a top for my vet friend, the 30s basket quilt which will be posted on quilts for quilters after she gets it and this applique quilt that is finally quilted. The pattern is scattered, I was just practicing with my machine and trying ideas. Can't figure out the curved cross hatching, but it will come I am sure. Name:  applique flower heart.JPG

    the real cool part is that I used my longarm to tack down the applique with a monopoly thread. Worked like a charm. I was not looking forward to appliqueing those cherries down.

    CQL--great pattern. I like how the points of the blocks come out into the border.

    Ring the bell for you...great finish and for a great cause.
    I like how the blocks extend into the border.
    You did a wonderful job on it.

    I'm sorry I haven't posted here in a li'le while. I have looked at all o' ya'll's lovely finishes but, have been so busy. I won't be able ta finish very many UFO's 'cause I bought my DGM's house! She sold it in 2006 & I just bought it from the people who bought it from her. It's gonna be a "lake house." It needs a lot o' work!
    Here is a link ta the Real Estate ad for it.

    Well congrats on the house dublb, that is a treat. This will just give you a reason for the future to finish some UFOs to put in the "lake house". how special to own your DGM's house.

    Here is a pic of a quilt I am working on. Cut out so many of these blocks and then stuffed in a bag. How do you think it looks? Does it flow well? Just wanting to be sure I am getting it right. i do not do these colors that often so i need help on this. It is not like the 30s quilts or my bright colored ones. It fits in my world of pastels, I don't play well with them. That is probably why it is a UFO, I have not used them alot. the outer border will be the same burgandy as the triangles. I think it fits pretty good. But if you have suggestions, let me know otherwise will sew it up tonight so I can get it done for my June finishes. Name:  Civil War Quilt.JPG
