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.

I finished a quilt that I have been working on for at least 7 years.  When I figure out how to post pictures I will post.  My mom loved it.

Comment by Vilma/AR yesterday

I have never been to a quilt market and would like to go one, just to say,"I have been".

When our oldest DD got married in Elk River on March 28th, I was lucky enough to stay in a hotel that was close enough to Noble's to see it from the driveway.  I also found out that Terry Atkinson lives in Elk River.  I wonder what she would think if I invited her to lunch the next time we are up visiting our DD & new SIL.  LOL

Janet, No Noble's.  Next time.  We hit Blue Bamboo, Millie P's, Crafty Planet and Rosebud's Cottage (a special treat because they were closed!)

Comment by Amanda Best on Friday

Gorgeous quilt, Pam! And I agree with Connie, starting a new project after finishing those is perfectly acceptable! Eight things completed this year is great! I only have one fully finished larger project done this year and I am never going to complete my list at that rate.

Quilt market looks amazing and overwhelming, I would love to go once though, rest up Karen!

Comment by Janet/MO on Friday

Karen, did you make it to Noble's Quilt Shop in Elk River?  If not, you need to do that if you are ever back in that area.  One of the nicest shops I have ever been in.  

Comment by karenthequilter on Thursday

Hi Janet,

It IS an exhausting, but exhilarating show.  I stayed a few days past for another event in the area.  8 full days of business travel in weird hot then cold weather patterns are not fun.  But I did have one day to go on a shop hop in Minneapolis.  I like to call it home work :)

Karen, I have been seeing various pics of quilt market and it looks like it was a fabulous turn out.  Wish I could have gone as my oldest daughter just got married at the end of March and now lives in Elk River, which is just north of Minneapolis.  I have worked quilt market before & it is exhausting, but fun at the same time.

Hi Pam!  I love the Eye fooler quilt!

Comment by karenthequilter on May 20, 2015 at 2:07pm

I'm back from Quilt Market.  Fun, but exhausting week.

Pam, Eyefooler is beautiful!  How was the graduation?

Maryam, How big are the blocks and how many cuts/shapes are there in one block?  It's an eyefooler too! Stunning!
