    I haven't visited this thread yet but certainly belong here as I have UFOs on top of UFOs. Since I started quilting again a month ago I've finished 4 UFOs. Blended Stars was my 1st finish, and one of my oldest (pieced in 2004). The pattern is Island Star from "More Fat Quarter Quilts" by M'Liss Rae Hawley.

    The 2nd quilt "Bees & Cats" will be donated to Project Linus. The blocks are from a Yahoo! Groups block exchange.

    Blue Yellow Brick Road is another "oldie". It was quilted by a long arm quilter (as was Blended Stars).

    The last project is a Halloween table topper using a Thimbleberries October Glow charm pack and a pattern called Everyday Table Topper from "Charmed and Dangerous" by Anka's Treasures.

    MissGiggleWings, Another great finish as well. I hope it brings great comfort to your friend.

    Wow, that is so nice. I love scrap quilts. They seem to be the best for therapy of the spirit. Nice job girl!

    Pinwheels and Prairie Points

    Finally finished up this UFO!!! It was a quick and cute pattern from ModaBake Shop, but I seemed to keep going back to other projects as I was just making this for the fun of it. Then I had a friend who was having a baby boy and this just seemed perfect for the occasion!!! So here it it!!!

    I was initially intimidated by the prairie points, oh but they are so easy. Give it try, you won't be sorry that you did. It adds so much to the quilt and the little ones love to play with them....LOL!

    BEAUTIFUL quilts! AWESOME job getting things DONE!

    Replying so I can get new posts and maybe it'll motivate me to finish MY OWN projects. I've been busy quilting for others and haven't spent quality time working on my own things. Christmas is TWO months from today and I need TO FINISH a wall hanging for hubby and START AND FINISH a computer bag for DD.

    Now if I can only get by without sleep...I may finish those projects!

    Have a great quilty day!

    You could do like QuilterMomma and incorporate your UFO's into FO's for gifts. But, even if not, join us here and finish something that will make you happy. Good Luck on your projects. You can do it.

    I have a busy weekend planned, how about you ladies. My hardest part will be to get the child out of the house so I can make her birthday present. I may have her go with her dad to return the tiller to the shop. I just think a man has more pull on these situations than a woman. Just seems that "authority" is there.

    I have 3 UFOs at the binding stage - 2 for Project Linus that need machine binding and one for me with a winter theme of batiks in shades of blue on white background. I'm 50% done with the hand sewing.
