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.

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.

Hello everyone, nope! cannot report a finished UFO just yet, but it sure is fun
popping in here to see how everyone is doing. Melinda, I have used a portable lap frame before and I really like it because you can turn your work around whichever way you need it. I have not tried that nifty sounding thimble though. Let us know how it works!

Melinda Grace - I'm not familiar with the finger thing or lap frame you got. But, I just use a regular thimble and rarely hoop or frame a quilt. I just hold it in my lap. Big ones and small ones. I spray baste the layers together and this works well for me. For large quilts, I put in some (not too many) safety pins just to make sure nothing moves before I get it all quilted. I don't like to bother with moving the hoop. Just get's in my way. The backs of my quilts turn out just fine, no folds or anything like that. I think whatever tools you use, you will get use to them and they should work fine. Just get started and do it - that's the important thing.

Hi everyone, I'm working on hand quilting a top that the blocks were done about 6 years ago. I had the material for the sashing, borders, backing and binding but never put it together. I'm going to give it as a gift the end of May. I have 4 of the blocks quilted already. I try to work on it each day. This group is great to keep me going. Thanks, Marjorie

I have a lot of UFOs that need to be done and just finished a top for charity (new project). I had it laying on my frame bars and it dawned on me that I just created another UFO. So i quilted it and am doing the binding now. Then I can get back to some of the old projects. Boy do I need to finish a lot!!!

Went to Road to California quilt show this past Friday and picked up Aunt Becky's finger protector, a Raised-Edge thimble and a Better Buildt portable lap frame to help me complete my hand quilting projects. Has any one used these products? They were very reasonably priced and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I can use them with semi-ease as I am NOT a hand quilter at all...

Ok,, I finally have a quilt ready to go on the frame. All pieces have been pressed and the batting has relaxed. Now to just figure out how to quilt it!!! My least favorite thing. This one is a ribbon block,,, done in red/white & blue. Finished the top more than 4 years ago. Shows you how slow I am to get them quilted. Oh, BTW,,, I have 24 more to go!!! That does not count the tops that need borders or to be sewn together. It will happen!! Lynne in Mich

Cheri, congratulations on finishing so much! Can't wait to see them after you master the camara!

Gurudas, The upper right hand block will be like the center, I just didn't cut any small squares for that corner yet. Thanks for validating my thought about removing the dark green and replacing it with a lighter color. Now, I think I will go to your page and check out some of your work.
