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
2. Timeframe: this is an ongoing group with no defined end time.

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.

Sorry forgot to add comment LOL. WOOHOO I am so excited, I managede to unload my pictures from my camera onto my computer and from there to my page all by myself. And here is my 2nd UFO finished of 2009. A small group that I belong to meet once a month and do handwork. Sometimes we elect to do a project together, this was the choice last year. It is somewhat outside my personal box, as I am a traditional quilter. The materials used in this were hand dyed by me. Now on to the next.

A few months ago, I decided to start finishing up my UFOs, but I also knew I had some quilts that needed to be done for some special people. My favorite thing is applique, but I knew that would take too long, so I asked at my favorite quilt shop for some advice, and discovered BQ2. The quilt went together so quickly, I couldn't believe it. I added borders to make twin size, and sent it to be machine quilted. It was so exciting to know that a quilt intended for a graduation gift in June, was completed in November. This was way out of character. Meanwhile I added hanging sleeves to a number of wall hangings, and am currently working on the binding for a quilt that was finished several years ago...except for the binding. It feels so good to be productive, and finish thing/jobs that actually stay done!

Now I have a request, I purchased a Linnea Riley Cat Pattern (for applique) a few years back, and although I've searched high and low, I can't find it. Does anyone know where I might find the pattern? It's the black cat holding tulips. I've searched online, but so far I haven't found it.

Congratulations on the impending birth and finishing the quilt! It's beautiful.

I finished a project this past weekend, a baby blanket for my new grandson who is due in two weeks. I quilted it on Friday and finished the binding over the weekend. One project off my list!

Deb brings up a good point. Did you know you can turn off those pesky emails? I was overwhelmed with all the email notifications this site sends. You can go into your Settings and go to Email - you can turn on or off as many topics as you like.

I took today off from work for a couple of appointments and I'm taking full advantage of the time at home to sew! I am actually making great progress on my applique quilt! I have all of the applique done on all of the blocks (including the border strips). I have most of the hand embroidered detail done and all of the setting blocks are done, done, done!!! I'm just taking a little break to see what everyone is up to, then it's back to sewing for me. I figure this should be completed and put together by the end of this weekend. I'm so excited becasue then I can start something new and maybe finish my daughters tote bag!

Good idea on the QOV. So many of my quilts have no planned destination - I just make them because I want to.
Comment by Nancy H. on January 13, 2009 at 8:45am
I started working on one of my UFOs this week. Had to remeasure what I cut because I couldn't remember where I stopped cutting. Man that was rough, but I'm happy to say that the quilt is now completely pieced and waiting to be quilted. Never thought I'd finish this one. Thanks for the motivation!

Thanks for clearing the mystery up about QOV, Marjorie. I will have to go take a look. Most of my UFO's are spoken for already, but I am also going to be trying to deplete my old stash, so I'll think about that as an alternative.

Hey Deb (Quiltbeeme)...you are SO fortunate to be able to attend a seminar with Jinny Beyer and in HI no less!! I'm drooling all over my keyboard! To answer your question, if you go to your personal page and click on the "Settings" menu on the upper right side...then click on "Email" on the upper left menu...then down at the bottom there's a spot to click for no emails, if I remember correctly. We'll miss you, but have fun and tell us all about it when you get back, please!
