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.

I've been absent again, and it's partially due to travel, again.  But today I looked through my spam folder and realized all of my quiltwithus notifications have been going to spam!  I'm now back in the loop - I've missed you all!  Love that you've been busy, even when I'm not giving anyone the Boot.

October travel was to Abilene, TX for my niece's wedding.  It was lovely and I got to see much of my family.  End of October and 1st week of November was Quilt Market in Houston.  Always fun, but always exhausting.  

But my BIG news is that I now have a solution for all of my UFO problems.  haha  You see, most of my UFO's are finished tops, waiting to be quilted.  I've been dreaming about this machine for years - meet the newest member of my family:

Thanks Elizabeth.  Your BOM sounds lovely.  

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on October 31, 2018 at 3:19pm

Janet, your Bricks in the Barnyard quilt is absolutely lovely.  My kind of quilt!

I'm working on a BOM quilt called "Signs of Spring" containing 8 applique blocks and the rest are pieced blocks. It's from "Piecing the Past Quilts".

I finally finished adding the binding to my Bricks in the Barnyard quilt.  This is from a class I took with Bonnie Hunter 3 years ago.  It was longarm quilted by my friend Becky, who did a fabulous job.  It can be used as a wholecloth quilt as well.

Thanks Elizabeth.  Here is a pic of the label that will go on the back.

Very nice, Janet.  I  have made a few quilting projects in memory of my mother also.

About 8 years ago I demo'd how to do "y" seams at a quilt guild meeting.  I made 4 blocks, but then that project was put away & basically forgotten about.  A few weeks ago I ran across it while looking for something else & decided it was long past time to do something with them.  My mom was the youngest of 7 sisters so I decided to make 3 more blocks & then set them in a setting similar to the "7 Sisters" layout.  Her 1st name was Iva so I'm going to call it "Iva and Her Sisters".

Thank you, Judy!

I'm still working on my QAYG String Quilt.  It has lots of leftover CT fabric strings from some of the earliest collections.  Many memories of other projects.

Sherri -  Now that summer is ending we need to dig in!

Elizabeth - I love your bee quilt. I have been really attracted to all of the bee themed projects but haven't done any thing with them. You did a nice job!
