    That is pretty asimplelife. I love it.

    I did finish some this weekend but no pictures yet. Will get on that. Working on an applique quilt for someone right now and it is looking nice, at least in my mind's eye it is.

    Thanks everyone for your nice compliments! I finished this Warm Wishes quilt last night which I'm calling Two by Two because of the animal novelty print. It will be donated to Project Linus. This is my 6th UFO finish this month... only 88 to go. Yes, I have a major UFO invasion at my house! You'll be getting sick of me soon.

    I better get the lead out if I am going to keep up with you asimplelife. You are doing such nice work. Love that two by two. Did finish piecing the backing on the Buffalo Bill quilt and then pieced together the embroidery ladies this am. Since I can't go to my quilt group tonight, I will be quilting them up so I have two more finishes which will put me at 8 for the month. Then to see what can do to finish up two more. If I did not have to go to work, would finish up the two baby quilts that still need pieced.

    asimplelife, nice finishes. I love the two by two. So cherry. Keep em' coming and we'll keep ringing the bell for all your finishes.

    Nice job keeping up with your goals QM. Always enjoy seeing your beautiful quilting. You definitely have a talent. Your quilting always enhance your quilt designs. (Or at least I think so.) Quilting is always my least favorite part of quilting. But, I have been working with that and hope to have a few more finishes. The year is definitely getting away from me.

    We never get tired of seeing finishes. If we can't ring the bell and toot the horn for ourselves, we are still happy to do it for everyone else. Hugsssss and smilessssss!!!!!

    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 will post them hopefully tonight. Been so busy scurring to get things done. Working on craft show items to sell since the candy bars for choir did not show up for it. I am finishing bindings. thank goodness I am using the machine to sew them on otherwise would not sleep at all and fingers would be raw by the time I am done with 8 of them. I have one more quilt to photo but can't because daughter has been home sick and in the evening when I am home she is in family room watching tv where I am and it is her birthday surprise. shocked she has not asked about the binding in her fabric that is hanging on the design wall so i don't loose it. If I would have been thinking clearly on Sunday (pain meds working) I would have left enough of the minkee fabric on the bottom so then I could just fold that over and use it for the binding. To late now. I do have 8 finishes this month. If I can get the covers on the ornaments, that will be 9. If you count the extra quilt I did for someone, that would be a total of 10 with those two things. But sadly one is not a ufo, just a favor for the Quilts for Quitlers swap.

    That is so cute QuilterMomma! I really should pull out my cross stitch bin and use some of them in wall hangings as it seems I'm never going to get them properly framed. It would be much less expensive too.

    It surprised me how wonderful it looks with those fabrics. Just think, then you can just fold it and put it away when tired of looking at it and then take it out again and not worry if the glass broke during storage. (ooo a funny)

    Here is Pink, White & Black Strings which is UFO Finish #7 for me. The blocks are from an online swap several years ago. I used fleece as a one step batting & backing and folded it over for binding too. It was challenging doing the binding since fleece is so stretchy, but it looks nice and should hold up well (zigzag stitch) as a donation to Project Linus. I learned that this is as big as I can quilt on my 10 year old Pfaff, at 48" by 72" it was a real wrestling match.

    Scrappy Star for Charisma

    Ladies...I finished something!

    Charisma sent a box of scraps my way in March of this year...piece something scrappy in trade for quilting a top of the same size for me. I cut 2.5" squares and sewed, cut and sewed. Then what? I stalled.

    QuilterMamma posted a beautiful log cabin star months ago...just when I was stalled with putting these scrappy triangles together. Last night I finished Charisma's scrappy star.

    Thanks Charisma for the challenge and QuilterMamma for getting the juices flowing again. This is my first scrappy and it was great fun.
