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.

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 project this past weekend, a baby blanket for my new grandson who is due in two weeks. I quilted it on Friday and finished the binding over the weekend. One project off my list!

Deb brings up a good point. Did you know you can turn off those pesky emails? I was overwhelmed with all the email notifications this site sends. You can go into your Settings and go to Email - you can turn on or off as many topics as you like.

I took today off from work for a couple of appointments and I'm taking full advantage of the time at home to sew! I am actually making great progress on my applique quilt! I have all of the applique done on all of the blocks (including the border strips). I have most of the hand embroidered detail done and all of the setting blocks are done, done, done!!! I'm just taking a little break to see what everyone is up to, then it's back to sewing for me. I figure this should be completed and put together by the end of this weekend. I'm so excited becasue then I can start something new and maybe finish my daughters tote bag!

Good idea on the QOV. So many of my quilts have no planned destination - I just make them because I want to.

I started working on one of my UFOs this week. Had to remeasure what I cut because I couldn't remember where I stopped cutting. Man that was rough, but I'm happy to say that the quilt is now completely pieced and waiting to be quilted. Never thought I'd finish this one. Thanks for the motivation!

Thanks for clearing the mystery up about QOV, Marjorie. I will have to go take a look. Most of my UFO's are spoken for already, but I am also going to be trying to deplete my old stash, so I'll think about that as an alternative.

Hey Deb (Quiltbeeme)...you are SO fortunate to be able to attend a seminar with Jinny Beyer and in HI no less!! I'm drooling all over my keyboard! To answer your question, if you go to your personal page and click on the "Settings" menu on the upper right side...then click on "Email" on the upper left menu...then down at the bottom there's a spot to click for no emails, if I remember correctly. We'll miss you, but have fun and tell us all about it when you get back, please!

I want to be an active part of this group but for the next month, I will be too busy to participate. Is there a way that I can just come to the site to see what's going on and NOT receive emails stating that a comment has been posted? I am sorry I am so busy right now but I am preparing to attend Jinny Beyer's last Seminar on Hilton Head Is. I am so excited - it's my first Seminar! Hugs, Deb

Hi Cornwoman,
I saw our coment about QOV. It stands for Quilts of Valor. Just put that in and you will go to the web site. The quilts are given to injuried service men and wormen. You put together a top and then go to web site and they connect you with a longarm quilter that quilts it. I have done to and sent off. You don't know who gets them but if you go to the web site you can see pictures . Maybe that is something we can do with one of our UFO'S. I was connected with a lady in upstate NY and we e-mail to each other. I have sent here quilts of my own to do. By the way they donate there time quilting them.

Arlene...what are QOV tops??

Mr. G....I hope that you are well again soon.

I did get the spreadsheet started to do a listing of the UFOs and planned projects that are hiding in my studio - and I found ones I forgot were there. I don't suppose anyone else has ever done that LOL. I have gone back to finishing table runners I was working before the holidays and got 3 finished yesterday and 4 more ready for the final quilting which is very simple - these are all from strip or border fabrics and use 60 degree triangles. It truly is a fun and easy project, I just decided to make about 30 of them. I used many for little gifts at the holidays and will be using some for our Guild show this fall. Will be going back to my long arm tomorrow as I have QOV tops to do so they can head to CO in February so the UFOs will have to find their way into the schedule. At least reading your progress will keep me motivated to not let them sit too long. I did do some reorganization so have some of them by my machine to get my attention. Have a great day.
