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.

That is very pretty Trevi.  Whoever receives it will love it.  I went to my local QOV meeting today.  I demo'd the proper way to do a binding as some of the members have never done that before.

Very nice Trevi!  And such a good cause.

Comment by Connie/KS on Tuesday

That's very pretty Trevi......someone will appreciate the work you put into it.

I'm taking the Quilts of Valor top that I've completed to our group leader tomorrow at our guild meeting.  Thought I would post a photo of it before I send it off into the world.

Everybody here is organizing, sorting and purging their sewing room.   I am working on organizing non quilty stuff like old paper works in the attic, the kids childhood stuff,  kid's t-shirt for their t-shirt quilt and old photo.  But since I got a few travel plans, I have to do them in between trips.

I still have a stack of magazines that I need to go through.  I have kept the Quick Quilts and most of the F&P magazines but need to go through them.  Now that I retired I need to go through   my subscriptions and see what I really want to keep.  Way too many magazines and patterns.  Fabric is a different story, I will keep mine but I do donate a lot of quilts to charity through the guild.

Trevi, I know exactly what you mean about the frustration of trying to work with blocks made by others.  We do friendship blocks in my guild.  A couple of years ago my name was drawn so I came up with what I thought was a very easy block and provided the fabric.  I ended up having to redo 8 out of 15 blocks.  I decided to give it another chance so the next time my name was drawn I handed out very simple paper pieced patterns.  Still received some that were totally unusable.  So when my name was drawn the 3rd time I declined to participate.

Thanks everyone, my brother does really like it so I am happy, too. The pattern is called Boho Girl, by Amy Smart and was in a McCall's Quilting magazine in 2013. I though the little rectangles looked like comic panels, so that is how I chose it for that.

Glad you are feeling better, Connie!

Great job on sharing books and magazines, Karen and Trevi. I do this at my guild, but the bad thing is is that many people do this, in fact we have a free table every time, and most times I come home with more new things than I brought to give away!

I understand about having to clear the deck, Karen! :0)

Still purging magazines.  Have also bundled a few yds of fabric to donate to my guild for door prizes.  Have spent many hours working on finishing a top for Quilts of Valor.  Have decided I really don't like working on other people's sewing, want to do it ALL by myself.  How many different 1/4" seam allowances are there?

Sewed a little this weekend - first time in weeks!  Of course, I had to clear the decks, so to speak, of my sewing room to be able to get to the cutting table, the ironing board, etc.  So the ratio was something like 4 hrs cleaning, 2 hrs sewing.  But still fun.  And part of the cleaning was clearing books - brought in 4 bags of quilting and paperbacks to work to share.  Feels good to purge!
