    I would like to join, but can't seem to find the place to sign up. Can anyone help me. I'm pretty new at this and am not sure how to do this. Thanks for your help. Ellie

    It takes real skill to choke on air, fall upstairs and trip over completely nothing .... I have that skill!!!

    My plate may be full, but my cup runneth over with blessings.

    You just joined up by stating your intention to do so. I look forward to seeing your posts recounting your progress in completing your UFO's.

    How lovely - I really like the way you personalized the back of the quilt.

    I'll bite ... what does DGD mean?

I did manage to complete a fancy millenium dress. I completed exactly six blocks of the quilt project. So I will drag this out after completing all my WIPs.
    That reminds me - somewhere I have a Millennium cross stitch sampler, barely started. It'll probably need a figure 3 on it before I get to it....

    ugh, I so need to do this. I'd like to be counted in, and we'll see what we can accomplish.

    I have a friend who uses water in a spray bottle to remove the paper. I use the handle of a steel crochet hook along the seams with the project on a mouse pad. Run the handle along the seam line, it helps the separation along the seam lines.

    Been reading everyone's comments. Glad I'm not in this UFO boat alone. I finished one more small project for 2011, brings total to 18! I have been organizing and cleaning my sewing areas, all ready to get to work. I have the 1st three all stacked up to work on. One only needs the border quilted and the binding. The other two are QAYG BOMs that I have been working on all year. They need to be sewn together and bound. Hope to get these three projects done in January. That's if I get Christmas stuff put up be the 1st. Do you hate storing all you Christmas things as much as I do? Ready, Set, GO...Good luck everyone!

    I have a LOT of UFO's. I am in. Got some done last year but not as many as I wanted to. Finished some and started some. Most of what I started did get finished though. (At last count I had over 100.) I know, I know. We moved a couple of times and they got put away then I do tops at my mom's while I am taking care of her. But there is not enough space to pin and quilt. She lives 250 miles away. Then I am home such a short time I don't get to quilt for very long.

    2012 looks like it's going to be a great year for doing up those UFOs for all of us!! What a great group we have joined in already. WOW! I have fewer than many of you, but I'm slower than most of you so it all works out, LOL.
    Hugggggs and smiles to all my fellow UFOers as January rapidly approaches! My first 4 UFO's will be a quilt for an ex-Marine, a t-shirt quilt for a local radio announcer, a black, white and purple quilt for my DGS and a kaleidascope table topper.
    3 new projects for this year will be our 40th Anniversary quilt for my DH, a black, gray and green quilt for another DGS and my 3rd Awareness Ribbon Quilt.

    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 am so ready! Quilter Momma I think I could give you a run for your money in the number of UFO items. Only I'm ashamed to display them. Currently I have 25 tops complete with backs waiting to go to the quilter and none is smaller than a queen. I have a queen quilt I have been hand quilting for 10 years now that my mother tells me will wind up being used as her burial shroud. I was just exploring when I found this site and thread. After reading it I knew I had to join both site and group. One a month may be tough but I will commit to one every two months. Maybe I'll be better prepared for Christmas 2012.

    I am absolutly in on this one. Had to fess up for another group and so far have unearthed 38 UFOs so far. I really DO want to finish some of them, all really but let's get real here. I am going to tackle some of the smaller ones first. Finishing something makes you feel so good that you want to get to the next one. I'm starting with baby steps and building up to big girl steps.

    I do not call the one I am hand quilting a UFO. I have had it over seven years now and am only 1/3 of the way done. It is a grandmothers flower garden. My MIL gave it to me and since it has to be hand quilted, well it is still there. That one did not get into my total of UFOs. You need a longarmer that is not real busy, pm me and we can arrange to get some of those tops quilted for you.

    Oh yes I need to count those ready to go. If I didn't then I would find lists of reasons to not count the many others. Lol I am a great starter but get antsy and veer off course when a project gets repetitive or " boring". I am a bonified ADD quilter. Lol

    I have one that does custom work plus one that will do overall. I just never seem to get the project to them. I think it must be separation anxiety

    I think the reason that my UFOs have built up is that most of them are waiting to be quilted, which always means a battle with my machine, which doesn't like to quilt - the thought of the frustrations and tears of rage that lie ahead sends me to the next project instead of getting the current one finished. But I WILL deal with some of them in 2012! Even if I have to make myself do 30 mins a day and then go back to some piecing as a reward.

    I like your idea of a reward system. I think that I won't let myself work on my FWPC sampler every evening untill I've worked on a UFO!

    I'd like to join this group as well. MY UFOs are too many to count.
