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.

Oh - Eeyore is DONE!!! I just took the quilt and pillowcase out of the dryer. Sunday I'll try to get better pictures, but in the meantime here it is.

VIlma I'm not certain -- I'd have to go back through the names -- I know at least one of my blog buddies that I've met in person is on the list and I recognize several names from various quilting lists I'm on.  As for which blocks I made, I honestly don't remember.  We were asked not to post pictures of them - I suppose until the book came out - so I didn't even take pictures. I made at least 6 and possibly as many as 9. -- I know I did one in blues from my stash and then Jennifer sent some of her fabric line for the others that I did.

Oh.....I did go to the reveal party to see what everyone else had done.....they were all amazing and each one was so different with the variety of fabrics and colors used. Of course, they told me I should have brought what I did have done, but being an hour from home it was not possible to run home and get it.

Comment by Connie/KS 17 hours ago

I think the only reason mine actually got finished was there was to be a reveal party and I was really working toward getting it done for that.....then of course life got in the way (my mom passed away) and I think I was like two rows short and the border to do, too close not to go ahead and finish when things settled down. I actually used it on the bed last winter and so enjoyed admiring it every morning when I made the bed.

You gals that are working on a similar one......GO FOR IT!!!!! You can do this!!!!! psst..........I'll probably never do another one like it lol

My Sylvia's Bridal Sampler that I started here is still on the UFO list.  Hopefully I can still find the book and the blocks I have already made.

Vilma and Connie, I'm so very impressed!  I started the Sylvia's quilt with Darlene's slacker and completed a total of 4.5 blocks...then quit.  haha!

Connie, I mean new quilters. 

Comment by Vilma/AR 19 hours ago

Connie,  some of the ladies in Darlene's Slackers were making the Farmer's Wife at the same time.  Yours love so good.  At the class, the plan was to stop making the blocks on Oct 2014 and put the quilt together in Nov and Dec.  The ladies got hooked on paper piecing and that is what the blocks that they are doing.  They want to continue the class as a bee and work on paper piecing quilts.  I would like to make a new York Beauty but some of them are new quilts.  Do you have an idea of a good pattern for New York Beauty?

Hi Pam, Connie and Vilma.

You ladies are so talented and you have so much perseverance!  I admire the 3 of you!  I would so much like to make a quilt that could join your beautiful work!
