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.

Thank you Karen!

I just now got home from a UFO class at Kiki's Quilt Shak.  I called Sewcoiety.  There are about 15 of us that get together every 2 weeks, and just work on our projects, visit and have a great time.  Very relaxing.  I just started another string quilt with all the leftover patriotic strips.  Plan to go through my bins tonight and see if I missed any.  I am cutting them into 2.5 x 4.5 inch bricks and plan to sew them together as you would a bargello.  We shall see how it turns out.  

Right now, just plain tired, time for some iced coffee.

Great progress Donna and Elizabeth!  Me?  Oh yes, I started something new yesterday, LOL!  Well, in my defense, I'm going on a 4 day quilting retreat next weekend and I wanted something fun and new.

Thank you Elizabeth!

What a fun quilt! Great job!

Hi Donna,

That is a lovely quilt you are making.  If you do decide to give it to your Dad, I'm sure he will be happy using it.  I love Scrappy.  Yours is Scrappy-semi Controlled.  The green holds it all together.  I was at our Spring sew-in for QOV yesterday.  I had a really good time chatting with everyone and I did accomplish lots too.

Very colorful quilt Donna.  I would think your dad would love to have it.

Hello Everyone

Here is my green top that I am calling Emerald.  Since I took this picture, i have added a border and plan to do another larger outside border to extend the quilt.  I used the last of the bargello strips that I had made originally and now those are almost gone.  Hopefully I can get this done by the end of May.  May give it to my Dad in assisted living to use.

Thank you Janet.  Embroidered labels would be very nice.  Ours are printed and then the information is added with permanent pen.  We are having our Spring Bee on April 21.

That is a really cute quilt Elizabeth.  I too volunteer with a local QOV group.  The main thing I do is make the majority of the labels that go on the back of the quilts.  I do them on my embroidery machine.
