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.

Excellant suggestion Karen, I am still a novice at organizing my pics and still have a lot of my finished quilts that are actually photos to scan into my page. but I am learning and am glad to see that I am not the only grannie being dragged into the 21st century by this blog. LOL

I think your suggestion, Karen, is perfect! I've started a photo albumn in my pictures for "before" and "after" pictures. But I think a blog entry with a picture as well as in the discussion Completed UFO's is even better.

QuiltDragon, I suggest everyone post finished pictures under the discussion called completed UFO's, and also within your own blog so everyone can see it. What do you think?

Have we decided where we're going to put the pics of UFOs, then finished projects?

Well, I went to the quilt shop yesterday to get some fabric for a border on one of my UFOs and signed up for 3 classes. A machine applique class and an intermediate and an advanced hand applique class. Of course, the 2 hand applique classes come with small projects so here we go again. In addition, I bought a baby quilt kit so add that to the list since if I don't do that soon the baby will be too old for it. Oh well, I guess I had better get to the sewing room. Have a great day everyone.

Boy do I need this group! I have too many things in various stages of completion! I will be inspired by you all to finish them! Thanks Karen! I am working on customer quilts and two mysteries at the moment but will make a list of things I wish to finish while with this group. Thanks and glad to be here! Hugs, Deb (Quiltbeeme)

Oh my gosh! My LQS had a "Meet the Teachers" night and I signed up for 10 classes! Half of the classes are finish classes where you bring your projects and there is a seasoned teacher to help while you complete your quilt...so, I figure I'm only half insane. The other classes are small projects that can be completed in a night, plus a beginning machine quilting class and a machine appliqué class. Starts out with tips on satin stitching and moves into invisible machine appliqué. I reasoned with myself that these are all things I need to know and master to be a good quilter. Besides that, the LQS rolled back classes to 2001 rates which were $15 bucks for most of the classes and two were free and two were $10 --- How could I pass that up? The teachers are fabulous and I'll be able to finish all my quilts myself...right? No more UFO's after I learn to finish them properly. Tell me I'm not nuts, please!

Hi everyone. I just signed up tonight after looking at my new CT catalog. I figure the UFO group would be good for me as I too have several hanging around. I did reprganize my sewing area and it is much easier to actually see what I have now! Yay! Ikea and the great shelves I got there! I am trying to finish hand quilting a full sized paper pieced dresden plate quilt I made for my sons wedding (two years ago)! I am over half way done though. I've had some health problems with my legs so that has delayed me a bit. Will post photos of in progress work soon.

Well I just finished a 2 day class with Libby Lehman at my LQS. Fabulous teacher! Unfortunately, now that the class is over and my quilt isn't done, I have officially added one more UFO to my list. But my enthusiasm for the project is still very high, so maybe I'll take a stab at finishing this weekend.

Oops! I think my computer hiccuped when I was trying to comment on Edith's UFO accomplishment and deleted her post and my comment. Stop by her page to see her UFO apron all finished. Sorry Edith!
