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).

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, Pam! It's a pretty block!

Comment by Janet/MO on Sunday

Sometimes I think it is a good thing to just take a break, even if it is a short one, from projects.  Lets us recharge our batteries so to speak.  Otherwise, I find it feels more like a chore than something I do for relaxation.  Kudos to you Pam for doing that as it sure seems to have worked!

Pineapple Blossom is a Bonnie Hunter Pattern

These were the first two blocks I made, but I've decided swap out the light fabric for this one with brown motifs and do half the blocks with a dark brown center with light shirtings.

Way to go, Pam!  What is a Pineapple Blossom?  Sounds like fun!

Comment by Pam Avara/MO on Sunday

Well, I'm tentatively declaring my slump over. Last weekend I plowed through the blocks for Alletaire - with only one piece turned wrong that I've found so far; and made significant progress on my Tumbler L/E. During the week I cut the pieces for Pineapple Blossom (I know, I'm supposed to be working on UFOS) from the 2" strips and it's ready to go to retreat with me on the 6th. Friday and Saturday I spent time working on the backing that I've been working on since January and I just need to sew the rows together and that is where I'm at on the Tumblers as well.  My current L/E project is Strip  Twist - at least until the backing and Tumblers are completed, then it will be come my main project and Pineapple Blossom will be my L/E quilt until the next challenge is announced. I'm sure I'll piece some today and tomorrow, but have no idea about the rest of the week. This week at work has the potential to be crazy.

Super splendid purple quilt, Connie, Fantastic job!

Welcome to the group, Russanne!

Good luck getting some sewing time, Vilma. 

Just seeing all the photos from Quilt Market is inspiring, I can't image how neat it would be to actually be there!

I am nearing the end of a UFO, slowly, but surely.

Karen, new terminology...."itch to stitch"..........that is what I will do today.

Just home from Quilt Market and all I want to do is SEW.  Counting the days till a 3 day weekend. I was surrounded by so much inspiration, makes me itch to stitch.

I'm so glad someone is making progress on their UFOs. It's been crazy busy at work so at the end of the day i'm mentally exhausted -- so much so it's all I can do to pull something together for dinner and plop in front of the TV to watch a baseball game.
