    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.

    Well here is Nov ember's UFO done! The blocks came from a Farm Block Swap in 2009.....really!! It was one of my first swaps and we had so much fun with it! This is a gift for my Nephew and his family who actually are farmers. I am blessed to be spending the Thanksgiving Holidays with them and my sister and my mom.(I haven't seen my Mom in 4 years..that was her last trip down here to winter with us) She is 87 now and I just want to hug her!

    If you recognize your block please shout it out! Back then I didn't keep tract like I do now!

    Enjoy!

    What an adorable quilt. We are in agriculture and also have a small herd of milk goats for the family so this quilt speaks to me. I bet your farmer nephew and relatives loved it.

    Nice one Foxflower. Love that quilt. Great manly colors and selection. Of course he is going to love it, you made it.

    Missgigglewings. Glad to see someone else is a little slow on those swap blocks like me. Earlier this year I got mine done. I love how simple you made your farm quilt. How fortunate to get good sized blocks. Wonderful job on the back. I had some of that same fabric you used. Works wonderful doesn't it. The receipients are going to love it for sure. Awesome finish.

    Here is a little something I whipped up last night to get a finish in. I joined this ugly fabric challenge, like I need another hole in the head, a few months ago and here is the end result. Name:  IMG_1210.JPG

Size:  310.9 KB Yep had to get all that fabric to work together. I used the ugliest in the lining and sleeves. Then embroidered the 50s poodle on the front of some fabric that is pink with black phones on it. The striped handle was one of the fabrics as well. Then because I could not find just the right green, I used a tea towell stripe to go on the outside then accented in black to hold all of the fabrics together. Worked. I don't think it is to bad at all.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. I just noticed that the top row is missing from the picture...I was looking for the really cute little frog and he is not there! I will check my camera chip when I get home because I know there is a frog in that quilt!!

    On another note-

    Great projects everyone! Love your batiks on black dublb. And, cute "ugly" bag QuilterMomma.

    I finished 4 UFOs last week. The kid's quilts just needed to be machine bound and the table runner was left at my MIL's for a hostess gift on Friday. Just 83 UFOs to go... LOL.

    asimplelife--great job on your projects and finishing UFOs!!

    I haven't done so well with UFOs since school started (I homeschool). In the last couple weeks I have started and finished some small projects for gifts though so at least there are no new ones.

    Congrats on the finishes ladies. I just love seeing these quilts to get other ideas to use up some of my leftover scraps, yep, there are lots of those in my stash.

    Carriem, congrats on finishing the little ones as well. THey need done and it helps to get the big ones done if you do the little ones, makes a nice break from all the work.

    asimplelife, Great finishes. your string quilt is definitely my favorite. I love the brights!! Congrats on your finishes. Woot, Woot, Woot!! You can do it. How many down? Only 83 more to go. I can't wait to see what you show us next.
