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.

Thanks, Karen!  

I have a database set up with all my quilt projects that need to be done and it is slowly getting done.

Thank you, Elizabeth!  I am feeling better finally.  Spent the morning on the phone with an old friend and cleaning out from under my sewing table.  It was kinda scary, found stuff I had forgotten about!

Hi Donna,

I hope that you are feeling better.  I like your applique of a wolf and the sewing caddy.  Very nice work!

I finished the quilt top for the little boy quilt and I pieced the backing from the remains of my CT wide back that I used for a larger quilt.

I will be sure to post a pic of it once it is done Connie.  Even though this stuff can be a nuisance to dust, I just think it makes a house look so much nicer to have little decorations like this on display.

Janet...can't wait to see your mantle quilt. It sounds nice and springy. I used to have a piano and entertainment center that I decorated for each season. We sold the piano and got a flat screen tv and moved the entertainment center to the basement, so I no longer have a place for all my holiday decorations. I really miss them.

Sounds like the perfect way to spend a weekend Karen.  

NIce projects Donna.

I finished the machine quilting on my latest UFO this afternoon.  Hopefully tomorrow I can get the binding & label sewn on tomorrow.  Next up is a mantle quilt, which is only 16" x 80" so that shouldn't take too long to make.  My poor mantle has not been properly set up since I took my Christmas decorations down so it is in serious need of some attention.  This mantle quilt has tulip blocks.  At least I can have some hint of spring inside the house even with 5+ inches of snow outside.

No finishes for February, sad to say.  I was sick most of the month with the flu.  But I do have these to show.  The first is an applique of a wolf, just need to back it.  It is for a friend's birthday.  The second is from another group and is a sewing machine caddy.
