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.

Once you're a member, you will see a green plus sign and a link to "Join Karen's UFO Quilt Along" in the upper-right of the group page. Clicking on the link will allow you to join this Quilt Along.
4. Post questions, project feedback, and pictures of your progress.

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.

I just finished a quilt for my bro-in-law in CT's Indigo II. I went to my son's mountain cabin and quilted with him for two days in the wilderness of Oregon. It was a blast! We ate rustic food over a wood stove, heard the hoot owls in the trees and a bear rifling through the apple tree, YIKES! Well, I made it back safe without becoming his dinner so I guess I will live to finish yet another UFO. I will post the pix of Micheal's quilt soon. I also finished a nine-patch using CT Belle Fleurs. It is gorgeous but I want to wait to post after the quilting is done. Well, off to bed to waste time sleeping when I should be working on a UFO.

Looks like we had a productive UFO weekend within our group. Good job! I embellished all the leaves on my Libby quilt and hand appliqued about 20 basket handles on an old UFO.

I'm going to chance that I can actually make some progress on the many projects I have started and not finished and let you all know as I go along. So far I have 7 queen-sized pieced quilt tops, 10 small wall hangings, two curtains for a friend (gorgeous materials), 5 twin sized sampler quilts with about 10 or so different style blocks/patterns that I need to finish. I have done quite well recently and finished 4 wall hangings for friends and one for my own wall. So, I will see how I do on all of this. Thank you all for being here. This site is fantastic. I find it very comforting to realize that I will be able to communicate with other quilters even when they are in different states. There is no one in my Apartment Complex who quilts, and I am one of the youngest here (66 years of age). But now, I can communicate with others and share my work and ask questions, and perhaps share my knowledge of quilting (I can't call it "my expertise" as I just chug along and make whatever comes into my head. I love being a scrappy and strippy quilter. I also love making crazy quilts (I made a queen sized bed spread out of cotton fabric and it is a usuable, washable crazy quilt I machine quilted the seam designs, and tied it all with white #5 embrodiery thread. It is incredible and I am so proud of it. I used approximately 300 different patterned and colored pieces of fabric to make the quilt. I do want to make another one, but I will have to wait on that one. I also made a man's tie crazy quilt wall hanging which I hung on my office wall when I was still working. Well, I am babbling here, so I will close. - Gurudas

I posted three quilt tops that I just completed & need to get them off to the quilter.

I made progress on my Libby Lehman project. See my blog for pictures and an update on the class.

I love the new arrangement and can't wait until I can dig into removing the stuff from the closet floor. I'm thinking that I will attack that tomorrow. Today I am rewarding myself for getting the room itself done, and am going to work on making the quilt kit that my DH gave me for Christmas. When the top is together I will practice free-motion with my new frame and work on improving my skills so that when I start that UFO for my folks, it will come out like I am envisioning. Usually I make quilts for others, but this kit is one that I am keeping.

Hi Everyone - this group looks like one that I need so I just joined! I have several projects going at once (just like ever other quilter) and can't seem to stop adding ideas for my "what to start next" list. I recently purchased 2 applique patterns and find myself looking for fabric for these. I'm trying real hard to not go shopping! I know if I do I will just add to my unfinished projects!

My other problem is that I have a hard time keeping quilts for myself. I find that special family members end up getting them (usually my sister and my daughters). I never have regrets because I know they are very much appreciated but I really would like to keep some for myself.

Dear All, I'm not getting anything done. I have no space to work in. My adult son will be moving out soon and then I can have a sewing room. When I saw the pictures of Cornwoman's quilting room, I was so impressed with the size and layout, I turned a little "green". I have only myself to blame, because I have acquired too much fabric, tools and notions for the space I live in. I have a plan in mind and only have to be patient for a few more weeks. My UFO's will still be there for me to attend to in March. WML

Congratulations, Julie, both on the quilt shop visit and the cutting of fabric for one of your UFO's. That's great. I'm dancing the happy dance with you.
