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.

Karen, cute pincushion with different techniques.  Love the color too.

I'm not real happy with the way it hangs, but oh well....it is bright and springy.

I looked at it Connie and it is so pretty!

Karen - It turned out so cute! It makes me want to work on mine. I only have the EPP part done. I love it!

Cute Connie!!

I forgot to post a finished project - it's from the bookCottage-Style Charm, and adorable pincushion - it has english paper piecing on one side, an embroidered house on one side, an embroidered saying on another side, and one side is just plain fabric.  It was so fun to make!

Posted a picture of a paper pieced tulip wall hanging made from swap blocks in 2012-2013 in the April discussion above.

Hi Sherri,

Many years ago, when I worked for Connecting Threads, we tested all of the photo transfer papers on the market at the time.  In my opinion June Tailor's outperformed them all, by far.  I carefully followed all of the color setting instructions - some tedious steps, but worth it.  Though I would still be afraid to wash the quilt.  I intended it as a wall hanging that would not be laundered.  I was very pleased with the quality of the images.  I used a high quality photo ink jet printer too - borrowed from a friend.

LIke your photo quilt...Karen.  I am just wondering about how you all deal with this.  I assume you are ink jet printing the photos... I have been disappointed when I did this making quit labels...They seem to fade almost before I even attach them to the back of the quit.  Is there something that you do to prevent fading on these?

Thanks everyone.  Judy, yes, that's the group picture I used to make the label.  I'm usually pretty bad about adding a label, but I made sure this one was on the quilt before we hung it.
