Congratulations Annette! The quilts are beautiful and it's great that you are feeling comfortable doing machine quilting. Last fall I finished a Christmas quilt that I'd started a long time before and it felt really good to be able to use it!

Well, that was just wierd.  I tried coming into QWU tonight only to have to completely reconnect!

Anyway, although I do have pictures, I warn you...they're not very good.  I'll try to post some.  Before I do though, I have to tell you I have completed not just 6, but 7 UFOs this year.  I had to succumb to machine quilting most of them.  The downside is they aren't handquilted.  The upside is I'm no longer hesitant to machine quilt.  I finally figured my rhythm to get a good stitch.

Annette, I hear you about UFO's. I agree with Janet - please post pictures. I have a mounting stack, too.

I do some rulerwork, but I've had trouble because of the way the table's been constructed. So, I'll probably mark most of the quilt first, then I can do it free motion. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble with my machine going backwards - the thread always breaks - so I have to keep that in mind when working. I'm going to ask my machine tech to see if there's anything that can be done.

Kudos to you Annette for sticking with that problem quilt.  I would love to see a pic of it.

QD I am so impressed that you are able to take on ruler work, the one technique I have not tried.  The results are quite marvelous though.  I can still handquilt, though my pile of UFOs are forcing me into machine work.  I just finished Lollipop Trees by Kim Mclean.  That darned quilt was trouble right from the get go, which is why it's taken me so long to complete.  But it's done so now that huge UFO, and I mean huge, is off my plate and I can focus on some others.  I think this year I knocked off at least 1/2 dozen so some progress us geing made and there are still a few montgs left, lol.  Be sure to post a photo of your finished quilt.  I'm anxious to see it.
