What this group is about

I don’t know about you, but I have too many things started. Join me in my quest to get finish what I’ve started. The deal is, for every 2 projects I finish, I get to reward myself by starting something new. You can make your own rules, or give the group ideas for new rules as we go. I think it’ll be fun to ask this group for advice on what project to wrap up next, show my progress with photo’s, get motivation from each other when I want to break my own agreement (trust me, I am weak willed when it comes to new projects).

1. No purchase necessary
2. Timeframe: this is an ongoing group with no defined end time.
3. If you are not a member of our Quilt with Us Community yet, click the "Signup and Join" box in the upper-right corner. Once you're a member, you will see a green plus sign and a link to "Join Karen's UFO Quilt Along" in the upper-right of the group page. Clicking on the link will allow you to join this Quilt Along.
4. Post questions, project feedback, and pictures of your progress. NEW To show your finished UFO in this slideshow, If you have finished a UFO, post a picture to your own photos, add a "tag" in all lower case. The tag should be " ufo" (don't type the quotation marks). I'll troll regularly and add them as I see them! Note, the slideshow only holds 100 photos and our industrious group has passed that number! As I add new projects, I am deleting the oldest. Now we can all applaud our progress more easily.
5. Cheer on your fellow quilters as you go!
6. TUFO - means Tuesday UFO - those of us interested try to make a small dent in whatever UFO we are working on. Tuesday is simply the day the Connecting Threads gals get together to sew and craft...you can make it any day you like, but we got a kick out of the title. Once in awhile we can't make it on Tuesday so we move it to Wednesday - yup WUFO. Report here what you are planning to work on, then the next day, let us all know how you did. Nothing is required, it's just for fun.

I agree, I just adore those color catchers!

Very neat trees, Vilma.

I love your quilt top, Trevi, it is very lively!

I have some UFO's that are for Christmas, but mostly knitted items, I finished a hat for my sister that I started at least four years ago and I am working on a poncho that was started for my older niece, but now will fit the younger one.

Comment by Connie/KS yesterday

I also use the color catchers, they really do work. If I question anything bleeding a bit I throw one in. Sure has saved a lot of catastrophes.

Comment by Marjorie yesterday

Pam wash in cold water with some color catchers as it has worked for me with reads

Comment by karenthequilter on Thursday

Pam, LOL!  Good luck on getting 2 out of 3 done :)

Comment by Pam Avara/MO on Thursday

I have 2, sort of.  

  1. My DWR to be finished, labeled, photographed, washed, photographed & on the bed by Nov 29th.  Do able as I only need to finish stitching the binding down long 4 rings. Well, at least if I don't freak out if/when the red bleeds- thus the 2 photography sessions.
  2. The batik quilt which I want to deliver by the end of the year. I've been working on it (or rather not working on it) since August.

I suppose could make a case for finishing my nephew's quilt by New Years' Eve when he's getting married -- but since I started this 3 girls ago, perhaps not. And I think I'm going to aim for my brother's birthday in February instead of Christmas.

Does anyone have UFO's scheduled as gifts this holiday season?  Would you like a countdown to Hanukkah and Christmas?  haha!

Comment by karenthequilter on Thursday

Trevi, woohoo on finishing a big UFO!  Vilma, love your trees!

And....797 hexies????  That's just crazy talk.  LOL

Comment by Vilma/AR on Thursday

Elizabeth, so far, my plan is to make 1 round GFG and see how that goes. 

Comment by Cora Hawkins on Thursday

My goodness....797 ??? Wow!

Comment by Trevi in Texas on Thursday
