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

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.

Karen.....Marti is a beautiful blue bird....and I love the little birdies on all of your heads in the other picture.....a cute idea!

Welcome back Marge.....hope you post some pictures soon as we would love to see what you're working on.

Cute Sammy quilt Elizabeth.

Janet....can't wait to see your bed runner!

Thanks Marge.  That quilt is now hanging in my office so I can look at it while puttering around on the computer.

Sammy's little quilt is adorable Elizabeth.  

Karen, that is funny about the bird.  Markets can be fun, but also exhausting!

I am in the process of basting a bed runner. This was going to be a large wallhanging, but then it dawned on me that I have wanted a bed runner for a long time so decided to do that instead.  I will post a pic once it is done.  I started making the blocks in 2011 so not as old as some of my UFOs, but still old enough that it needs to be finished.

Elizabeth, Sammy is going to love it!

Welcome back Marge/WA!

Connie/KS, your Jacks are adorable!

I've been busy with work and mini travel.  Was gone from home for 6 nights at Spring Quilt Market.  It was in Portland - do you know the show Portlandia?  Well, there is a saying from the show "Put a Bird on it".  So we did.  A bird is on all of our books, so we've nicknamed it Marti.  Got a little carried away this show.  Here's me with Marti, and me with our entire Martingale Quilt Market crew.

It has been a long time since I have been on here.  I just checked in and you gals have been busy.

Janet/MO, I love your LC with the plain block  layout in the middle.  What a great idea for baby quilts with all that space for a cute animal applique.  Thanks for the idea!

Connie/KS - love the Chunky Jacks and your row by row swap quilt.

Glad to see you back Gmakitty.  I hope you are doing well after your strokes and are ready to get back to quilting.

I have gotten a few things done with lots more to do.  I just haven't posted monthly pictures so that is my own fault.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day.

Chunky Jacks, a UFO from 2006, is finally finished!

Welcome back Gmakitty......of course you are welcome here. Sorry you are dealing with health issues. Prayers for your recovery.

Welcome back Gmakitty.  I'm sorry to hear you have been dealing with serious health issues.  I hope you are on the mend.

Thanks Elizabeth.

Very nice Log Cabin quilt with the butterfly in the centre.  It will make a beautiful wallhanging, Janet.

Welcome back Gmakitty!  I am so sorry that you have been so unwell.  Please let us know how you are doing.
