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.

It is another lovely quilt Lynne.

This top has been on the UFO shelf since 2014, when I started the blocks.  All back basted applique.  Still need to decide on borders.  Yes, it will stay a UFO for awhile.  (I've already started another applique)

Thanks Karen.  I love Judy Martin's quilts, but they are definitely not for the faint of heart!

OMG!!!! Janet, that's crazy, but beautiful!

Here is a pic of a UFO I managed to get finished before the end of 2019.  It is the Snake River Log Cabin from Judy Martin's book "Log Cabin Quilt Book".  I was originally going to make it king size.  Reality set in very quickly.  LOL  The smallest piece is 3/4" before sewing in to the top!  I'm very pleased with how it turned out & my friend Vonnie did a great job with quilting it.

Here is a close up of her quilting:

Connie/KS, those are some beautiful quilts you were able to finish the past few months. Hope the healing goes well.

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!
