    I will finish one ufo this month, I will finish one ufo this month, said the busy bee. You guys are encouraging, I started working on the tiny tree paper pieced project, now just have to sandwich it and just have to top stitch it, and bind it, one little wall hanging, i will finish one UFO this month, I will finish one UFO this month. (I hope.)

    Wow months not even half over and so many first projects completed. I am lagging behind, decided to make my first project the Orca Mystery but just might do a wall hanging I have started so I can stay on schedule. Congrads everyone!

    Like your quilt DebraK Do I need to pm you with my address so i can have a steeler quilt? LOL

    So putting applique on the side borders will be more work than i really want to do actually. i will think on that. The block on the right - dk green one- is what is in the center of the quilt. it ws what the quilt was built around. We did a round robin in our quilt group. I will see if I get time this weekend (I get to teach a bargello quilt class on Saturday) then I will photo what fabric I have left for it to see what we can come up with. The sides sould be a 6" block and the top and bottom 12". The quilt is a 60" square now so maybe just 6" all around. I do not know, that is why it sits there. Too many confusing ideas.

    I finished up a little quilt finally. It was a 'Sq in a Sq' class project that I took about 4 years ago. Got it quilted, yeah. I don't know how to post a pic here.

    You're all doing so well! I'm at a complete stop. I have 3 machines and can't use any of them: Janome is broke; Featherweight needs oil and I can't find it; I need instruction book to do anything with new 201 - and I can't find that either. Erm - maybe I should start by tidying my sewing room!

    I did not get much done yet this week. Still at a standstill. I finished that table runner and then nothing. I taught yesterday and showed my two class demos that are called UFOs. Cut one up so can finish it and the other just needs sewed and the borders are sitting out in garage with backing. I am doing swap blocks that I committed to so after those, will get busy.

    I have a good friend who is more of a perfectionist than I and once in a while she sends her half-finished, unwanted UFO's to me. So here is one that I only had to add the binding to and now it is done. I think I will donate it to the local Assisted Living Center next winter for a wall hanging.

    Forever Quilted

    It's titled Forever Quilted because it took me forever to quilt it! LOL It is a reverse applique and has been 14 years in the making. One of those projects you carry everywhere and maybe do 30 minutes work on it and put it away - well, that's how long it takes of those 30 minutes - 14 years. Anyway, it's finished, totally hand quilted.

    Should have titled my Forever Quilted as January UFO. The back sure didn't picture up too well. Will have to practice on that as I do want to enter this in some shows this year.

    Wow! Great quilts! Sometimes I wonder how so many truly amazing quilts become UFOs. What is your "trigger" for putting a unfinished quilt in the back of the closet? Mine is when I reach the point that I can see what it is going to look like, than the excitement is over.

    Great question. I don't have a dedicated sewing space. The set up, take down, repeat makes me crazy so I often put things really away and out of site out of frustration. Hand sewing has become my friend as I can steal a few minutes here and there to work on it, without all of the set up.
