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.

Thank You for the Welcome.  I am from Pennsylvania.  I have lots of UFO to work on.  I won't be able to make tomorrow's UFO party I have to take my father to the doctors but will check in when i get home.  I plan on working on some of my quilting.  I am quilting a quilt that was my sister in laws.  So I plan to finish that first.  Then I have a T-shirt quilt that my adult daughter made of her 4-H shirts so I will work on that one next.  Then I need to work on a cat quilt top for my son.

Comment by Cat Lady--MO on Thursday

Vilma, you could always try another holiday, such as Halloween.  Or a season of the year Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall.

Comment by Vilma/AR on Thursday

Pam,  I got tired just by reading your next project.  LOL

Ladies, I need a suggestion for a row quilt exchange.  Last time, I did Asian flair,  I just did a civil war quilt, Aunt Grace 30's fabric and Christmas.  Thanks for the suggestions.

I had a seam ripper by my table, but we cleaned. At least I think that's what happened. But then again until recently, I haven't really sewn much in the living room since I try not to do any handwork.

Pam, one of the things I have in a coffee cup next to my "living room" chair other than pens and pencils is a seam ripper.  If I sew in there I need to bring the needles and thread, but the seam ripper is always there ready when needed.

Vilma the little coasters are great!

Boy am I in trouble.  I don't think I've worked on anything lately except a new long-term quilt. I've got 8 of 365 3" LeMoyne stars made. I really should be working on the binding of my DWR. Or working on the commissioned quilt, or if I was going to start a new quilt, the quilt for my niece's graduation.

I need to drag the DWR from the living room back into the sewing room so I can re-attached about 4" of binding.  I ripped it out about a week ago because I didn't turn one of the inner corners well. Then of course there are the 4 or 5 rings I machine stitched down that also need to be ripped out.  I really need to get a seam ripper back into the living room.

Trevi, you can have a full week before getting the boot.  You need a bit of time to recover, then you can dive into your plan.  LOL
