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.

Great job Karen, and Judy! I think the oldest ones are the hardest!

I love those Crabapple Hill patterns!

Comment by Judy/WA yesterday

That is great progress. Keep going Karen!!

I worked on a UFO from 6 or 7 years ago. It's an English Paper Pieced Table Topper and I made a lot of progress. I "only" (ha ha) have 72 more hexagons to sew on.

Amanda, your Easter quilt is adorable!

I made progress this weekend on a very old UFO - my Over the River and Through the Woods quilt.  It's a Crabapple Hill pattern with 3 long panels of embroidery.  I finished the 2nd panel this weekend - it's been in my hoop for at least 3 years!  On to the 2rd panel now.

Pam - That was nice of you to do the binding! I bet she is excited to be finished.

Amanda - What a cut Easter Quilt! Finished just in the nick of time.

Hi Pam,

Please tell you friend that I think her quilt is lovely!  You are a good friend to do her binding.

Happy Easter Everyone!

Comment by Amanda Best on Sunday

Thank you everyone! It was a very fun project!

Beautiful colors on your friend's quilt, Pam!

Comment by Pam Avara/MO on Sunday

It's not my UFO, but a friend's.  She started it prior to 2007 -- I remember this because it is a Turning Twenty Again quilt and her top was done -- or at least cut out when I did my Turning Twenty Again quilt which I started in 2007.  After it came back from the quilter's she asked me to do the binding.
