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.

Elizabeth, love the colors of your quilt.
Comment by Janet/MO on Wednesday

Very bright & pretty quilt Elizabeth.  I know what you mean about how easy some of those "experts" make machine quilting appear to be.  Guess it just comes with the amount of practice they have.

Comment by Linda Christianson on Tuesday

Good reason to machine stitch the binding for children quilts when hand stitching falls apart. I been reading our thread needs to be double, but harder to hide the stitches. Real waxed quilting thread works best for me. Just don't use it in your machine. The wax will cause problems and is hard to remove.

Very pretty Elizabeth!

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on Tuesday

Thank you, Karen.  The machine quilting was a little harder for me than Nina McVeigh shows in the Bernina demo! LOL

Comment by karenthequilter on Tuesday

Elizabeth, I've seen that fabric in my lqs - pretty!  That's a lot of quilting!

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on Tuesday

Hi!  I just finished Lavender Quilt.  I machine quilted it with my walking foot every 1/2" apart.

Comment by karenthequilter on Tuesday

Wow, Vilma, that's impressive!

Wow, that is a lot of charity quilts at one time Vilma.  I need to get more labels embroidered for my guild's charity quilts.  I just do them on muslin, but they work out pretty well.
