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.

ONe UFO,  last year's Bonnie HUnter mystery.  Went to the long armer last week.  When I get that back I will bind it and put it on my bed.  I also pulled out this from my UFO box.  Quilting is almost finished.  Just put on the borders this am. Thankfully I had a good amount of overhang on the batting and backing, because I did not plan on a border.  but found this fabric on this weeks shop hop with my quilting buddy. and added it to the piece.

Hello ladies. I am still - slowly - putting back together for BH mystery. It is so big! It is my only UFO!

Connie - the blue piece around the world is beautiful!

Karen - what a find, so many blocks...very nice.

Happy sewing all!

Beautiful quilts Connie. The snowman quilt makes me smile.

What a find Karen! It's beautiful! Will this be for the niece?

I like making wall hangings because they can be hung where I can enjoy looking at them on a daily basis. I'm getting quite a stack of bed quilts and do change them on our bed regularly to enjoy them also, but they are hidden in the bedroom where no one else can enjoy them too.

I like doing applique too.  I have several projects that need finished that just need one or two blocks appliqued.  Too many UFO's and not enough time LOL

Karen....lucky you to be able to sew with your mom. Mine didn't do any sewing except embroidery by hand.....I cherish all the tea towels she made for me. Your quilt you made this weekend is beautiful.

Great find on those blocks Karen.  That would make a great Quilts of Valor quilt.

Connie, I remember making that row now.  I love snowman quilts so I really should do that row for a quilt for myself.

Elizabeth, my mom never understood why I made so many wallhangings.  I told her that there are a lot of quilt designs that really don't lend themselves to bed quilts.  For instance, I made her one with log cabin blocks that looked like chickens.  I even used fabric for the background that looked like chicken wire.  I told her that no one would want chickens roosting on their beds!  Also, some times I want to make a design, but don't want to put the time & money in to making a big quilt. Plus I consider them to be my fine art.  Much more attractive than anything made by the Renoir, etc. in my book.  The definition of a quilt is 3 layers stitched together - the top, the batting & the backing.  Nowhere does it say it has to be only used on a bed.

Hi Karen,

So nice that you can quilt with your mother.  My mom has passed but I have happy memories of sewing clothes for my kids with her.  She did the hard parts - like hand-stitched button-holes.

Comment by Vilma/AR on February 26, 2018 at 5:11am

Connie, love your blue and  snowman quilt.  I need to make me a blue wall hanging quilt. 

Karen,  wow, that was too easy to make a quilt.  Find 29 blocks stashed in your sewing room and sew them together.

I was out of town for the weekend without computer access (!), so I'm just now checking in.  Connie, what a happy snowman quilt!  Donna, I often take a left turn when starting a project, LOL.

Elizabeth, heal fast!

I helped my mom get rid of a UFO!  I was visiting her and my dad over the weekend.  We planned to start talking about making a quilt for my niece who is getting married in October.  Instead, she pulls out 29 12.5" square pieced blocks!  She doesn't remember making them and may have gotten them at a garage sale, but they were in great condition and we were able to use most of them.  The top is now pieced!  We started early this morning and finished (except for one border) the top before I had to leave for the train station.  My job will be to quilt it.
