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.

Love the barn quilts Connie.  I am focusing on finishing up some UFO projects that are accumulating in my sewing space.   Finished up a couple of small projects a scrappy baby quilt, and a small xmas table matt.  Now going to quilt a crib quilt I pieced a long time ago.  I did get a bed size quilt top pieced when I got back home and found all the blocks for this project completed and in a box.  So Bonnie HUnter's  Box Kite is completed and awaiting a decision on quilting.  I also have to finish up sandwiching the T shirt quilt for my granddaughter who is going away to college this fall.  I should have enough time to finish that one up.  But even finishing up these projects doesn't seem to make a dent in the pile of UFO's.  But now its a nice day so I am going outside to week the front flower bed...

Spring Basket....UFO from 2011

Thanks, Janet, Connie & Judy!!!   Judy, my first love is probably applique.  I've made 2 quilts very similar to Baltimore Albums, and doing one finishing up one now.  It was an online class with Jeana Kimball, doing all the blocks with applique or hand piecing.  I am  not happy with my hand piecing, so I chose to do 2 on my machine.

Lynne, that is beautiful and a lot of hand applique!

Comment by Connie/KS on February 17, 2020 at 10:28am

Wow Lynne...that's gorgeous! Congratulations on a beautiful quilt!

Lynne, your orange peel quilt top is gorgeous!  Great example of how so many different colors can work great together.

I just added another UFO to the pile.  Instead of dwindling, it grows!!!  Oh well, at least I'm enjoying it.  This quilt top was made with 5 inch charm squares.  The orange peel shape was cut with my AccuQuilt cutter.  Peels with appliqued down by hand.  Had to trim the charms to 4 1/2 inches, to make sure they were all the same size.   Then I used more charms to make the square in the square border.  Size is about 60 1/2 x 85 1/2.  this will be taken to a long armer, at some point.
