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.

Lynne, Okay then.....NEEDLE TURN???!!!  That's incredible!  I'm wow'd either way.  

So sorry to hear about our wrist and thumb.  I only have a little in my inde finger, but it causes me to have to do hand stitching in small bursts - even binding!  I can't imagine what you're pain level is like!

Karen,,, sorry, not hand quilted.  Looks like some of my post was lost.  I have developed Osteoarthritis in my right wrist,, bone on bone,, and bursitis in my left thumb.  I will only do a few hand quilted projects.   But, the applique  projects were done with back basting needleturn, or just needle turn.

Lynne, HAND QUILTED???!!!!  OMG, you are awesome!  These are incredible!  And I whined about having to machine quilt a 24" square project for work this weekend!  hahaha

I'm not telling how many UFO's I have accumulated in the 44 years I have been quilting.  Hand quilting, is now done on a selection of quilts.  Osteoarthitis has caused me to slow down on quilting.   Here are a few I have had quilted by a LAer.  Some are still waiting for binding.

Thanks Judy.

I LOVE black, white and red. Great job getting it finished after 7 years! It looks great!

Comment by Janet/MO on November 7, 2019 at 7:21am

I finally finished hand stitching down the binding on a quilt that has been in the works for 7 years!  Once I got it basted, it took me 2 months to get it quilted.  I named it "What Is Black & White & Red All Over?"  This was a BOM I started in 2012 with an internet group I used to co-own.  So happy to finally have it done!

Most of the groups I belong to on this forum have been quiet.  Makes me wonder what is going on.

Comment by Judy/WA on November 4, 2019 at 7:48am

Wow! It has been quiet in here. I am still here. I haven't been doing much either but I want to. I have finished a few small projects here and there but I think it's time to get back in the sewing room.
