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).

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.

Connie/KS - wow!  You've been busy!! 

I managed to start two more small quilts over the holiday - one for work and one for me - neither are finished, hahaha!  But I did finish a top for work - you can follow along with my quilt along here:  https://blog.shopmartingale.com/quilting-sewing/mini-quilt-along-al...

I am also supposed to finish a quilt along for one of our summer books - I started it back in May, made good progress, then put it away til I moved apartments.....now I can't find it!!!  Yikes!  Hope I don't have to start over.  While I was tearing my place apart this weekend looking for it, I found lots of UFO's and new projects wanting my attention.  Darn!

Wow....the months do fly by. I couldn't believe it when I saw I hadn't been on this group since July. Lynne....you have a lot of gorgeous quilts and have been really busy getting them finished. I too, am having a problem getting mine bound as I need carpal tunnel surgery on my right hand. It's been 4 years since I did the left one and have been putting off doing the other, but don't think it can wait much longer. I have finished several quilts since July, just didn't think about posting them here.

Another UFO finished!!!  Called Kansas Winter,, same name as the fabric line by Kansas Troubles.  One more needs label and binding stitched down.  Then try to finish a few more.

Another fabulous WOW!

Another beautiful quilt Lynne.  I can sure see why you take them to Shipshewana to be quilted!

Comment by Lynne on December 9, 2019 at 7:14am

Thank you everyone, for your comments on my recent finishes.  Here's another one that has been finished for awhile, just never took a photo of it.  I believe its called Starburst, and its my version of a vintage quilt.  All from my Civil war stash.  Quilted by Colleen in Shipshewana, Ind.  It's got fold creases!!!

Lynne, your quilter did a wonderful job on your Judy Mathieson quilt, and your fussy cutting those triangles makes it a real standout.

Comment by Cora Hawkins on December 8, 2019 at 11:15am

Wow Lynne such wonderful work on so many quilts...amazing...

Comment by Lynne on December 8, 2019 at 9:41am

Thanks, Karen & Janet.  I have 2 more ready to finish, label was attached this morning, and just need to finish binding.  Another is waiting to have the binding finished,,, I cut it to short,, must have been a senior moment.  Label is ready to be written and stitched down.  Yes, I am on a roll, but these have been waiting for years to be completed.
