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.

Thanks Amanda & Karen.  He saw a pic of it already and was thrilled with it so far.

Janet, he's gonna love it!

Comment by Amanda Best on Monday

Wonderful job, Janet! I haven't tried very many kinds of thread at all. I have a million spools of Connecting Threads thread, so I use that for nearly everything.

Comment by Janet/MO on Saturday

I finished piecing a quilt top for my BIL Cameron this morning.  I am wanting to branch out a bit with what brand and weight of machine quilting thread I use so am open to any suggestions.  I have been using 50 wt Mettler and Superior's King Tut, but some times I want something a bit more subtle.  Here is a pic of the top.  I still need to get backing fabric & batting, but hope to have it completely done & on its way to CA by the middle of Sept.

Karen, you reminded me of my GFG hexies. I could have been working on them. I started hand applique them to a biege background, did 2 but I think I will machine applique them. I have 98 to go.

I'm not making much progress either. Been working on snowflake mug rugs...one for a swap and a couple for gifts. Need to spend some time at home instead of having to be somewhere else almost every day.

I have 20 Log Cabin blocks to make for a swap and have the first one almost done.  That's going to be my list for August.  Though I did finish 12 Courthouse Step blocks yesterday.  That's some progress, I guess.  The list just keeps on growing and growing.

Hi Pam, thanks for waking us up!  I've mostly been hand stitching on my Millefiore english paper piecing, but it's been hot here (no AC), so I can only do it after my hands stop sweating, haha. 

Love your plaids!

It's been quiet, so I thought I'd post what I'm slowly working on.  I've been distracted - between KC Royals baseball games, working on my husband's website (he's going to start teaching private instrumental music lessons) and watching the meteors - I still have another 13 blocks to make then I'll cut them all into quarters for a Disappearing 9-Patch.
