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.

Hi Vilma,

Nice Jelly Roll quilt.  Did you use 2 jelly rolls to make it larger?  It looks really good on the bed.

Vilma, I like your quilt, reminds me of a spring day.

Comment by Vilma/AR yesterday

Grecie's (as in 1930's fabrics) Jelly Roll Run with 2 pillowcases to matched the backing. 

Comment by Vilma/AR yesterday

Pam, Wow,  I want to make one for a while. 

Comment by ranchmom/OR yesterday

Pam, that is a beautiful quilt, really looks like stained glass.

Comment by Connie/KS on Saturday

That is beautiful.....really looks like stained glass! All I can say is WOW!!!!

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on Saturday

Pam, your quilt is beautiful!  The CT batiks look so lovely.  It makes me want to say my prayers - so stained-glass like.

Comment by Pam Avara/MO on Saturday

Thanks everyone.  Sydney really likes her quilt.  Here's my latest finish.

This is Abbey Memories from Turning Twenty. It's been hanging around as a top for a couple of years and it the quilt I quilted last Friday morning before heading out to the quilt retreat. Attaching and stitching the binding down was the last thing I worked on at the retreat last weekend.  I didn't get my machine pulled out until Thursday evening and finally finished it last night. All of the top fabric came from Connecting Threads. :-) I think there's just enough black left to make the body of a pillowcase, but since I bought FQs (and have played in them since finishing piecing) I'm not sure if I have enough to make the cuff...
