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.

Some Hawaiian quilt fabrics

Comment by Vilma/AR on September 30, 2015 at 9:11am

Hi ladies,  I have been to Hawaii and got these fabrics.  This fabrics is for hula skirts.  The large prints are printed on one side of the fabric as a focus print for the skirt.  You need 4-5 yards of fabrics for 1 skirt, gathered at the waist.

Love the blues and stars, Marge.

Karen that looks like something my cats would attack!

Thanks, everyone.  I found my thread last night and finished the quilting. Tonight I get to bind and clip threads.

Marge, way to go!

Congratulations Pam & Marge. 

I went through my unquilted tops this morning & re-did my list.  I like to have them typed up on a sheet of paper.  Then whenever I finish one I take a yellow marker & draw a line through it.  I thought I was down to 9, but then realized since I had made the prior list I made a Quilts of Valor top for my husband which still needs to be quilted so technically I have 10 to get quilted.  Two will probably have to go to a longarm quilter due to the size, but I hope to make a good dent in the remaining 8 before the end of the year.

Here is a UFO that was started in 1997 or 1999 and is FINISHED finally.  It was a 15 month - BOM - from Stitchin' Post in Sisters OR and now resides in Montana.  So happy it is done and living with my best friend from high school.
