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

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.

This is a Mystery Quilt done with the members of the Piece Around the World group last year.

Pretty crib quilt Sherri.

I finished binding two UFO's. This one is the $5 Quilt from 2011. It was the final finish of 2020.

This one is my first finish of 2021. I started it as a leader and ender project in 2014....Star Patch.

I had 8 quilts that needed binding before I had carpal tunnel surgery in August. I have one more of those and two newer projects to bind and I'll be caught up on binding until I finish something new. Feels good to finally have these almost caught up.

Checked off another one. This is a Bonne Hunter pattern,  Can't remember which one... It is a crib size quilt.

That’s beautiful Sherri!

Moved earlier this year and consequently the UFO's didn't get finished like I wanted.  Actually moved twice - first to my daughter's apartment and then 2 months later to a larger apartment.    Most of my sewing stuff was in storage until the 2nd move.  Even now have 6 large rubbermaid tubs in storage filled with fabric - no room in my new sewing room.  Have plenty here so thinking about finding patterns using scraps - have plenty of those.  Am currently making Quilts of Valor and tops for 2 churches - one in my previous home and the 2nd here in my new home.

Beautiful, Sherri!

Boy, do I understand about being distracted by too many projects!  LOL

Gorgeous quilt Sherri.

My goal for November was to quilt this piece.  When NOV 30 rolled aroiund I hadn't started it. So I reaaranged my sewing space,  which I have to do when I quilt... and got busy.  The quilting was finished in NOvember. But I put the binding on yesterday.   I too am distracted by so many projects.  I prefer piecing to quilting and I have several tops in my UFO bin....And between starting a new scrappy and stitching up small projects for gifts.  The quilting is never on my radar.
