Quilt With Us

What is the average age of your UFOs before you finally get around to finishing them? This one is about 5 years old. The woman who hand pieced it, made sure it was never going to come apart! I had to take a row off due to damage...didn't think, I'd ever get done ripping! Will take this up to the lake next summer. The Fall has been wet and cold this year. Have done a lot of sewing because of it....

I have to join the "longer than 5 years" group regarding UFO's. I am a fabulous starter and a poor finisher. It seems like either I encounter something  that is more timely, like a baby quilt or something more exciting--to start, but not to finish.

Barb you are so right!!! Wow Irene, can't believe it's been 4 years since you moved. Time is going by so fast!

My favorite color is blue so my eyes are clinging to this beautiful quilt. As for UfO's. My oldest has got to be 5 or 6 years old. I cut out a couple of purse's way before I moved to this apartment and I have been here 4 years last July.

Pam!  If you get rid of all those paint cans, I'll bet you would have room for 2 more bins of fabric!

Looks good!  My kind of quilt. 

I...don't think I want to even know the average age of my UFOs.  Like Carol Ann, I think 5 years may be too young for most of mine.  I'm between projects right now, so I should get one out and finish it.

Thanks ladies...it's country blue and cream muslin. I have two more UFOs that may become several runners! I like to have them on hand for hostess gifts. I have enough quilts hanging in the hallways and places at both houses. Don't really need to have more. I'm am going to start working on getting some Christmas fabric used up. Have gorgeous Hoffman prints that I bought years ago when I made tree skirts to sell. This week, we decided to clean out all the paint cans that we saved just in case. In case of what???? Well there were 24 cans and we consolidated the oil paint and then all the  water base colors. We are taking 12 gallons to the recycle plant tomorrow. Now, what do you want to bet, we'll need some color next week!!! Have a great day!!!

Funny how we are all seeing the colors of that beautiful quilt differently.  I see white and medium blue!  I am not sure about the average age of my UFO's, but I know for sure I have more than 2 or 3 in the 1 to 2 year range.  Goodness knows what I might find though if I start really digging!

Nice job with the quilting and it will be wonderful at the cabin. It looks like Cream and Dark Blue to me. I only have 1 UFO and it's about 5 or 6 yrs old. It's on point and I'm doing it in halves, so it's diagonal from corner to corner. Trying to figure out how to put the back, batting on. It will have to be cut diagonally and then I'll have to many seams on the back after piecing the back together. So, I may just have to sew it together and do it as a whole quilt. Or, buy material that is 1 piece for it.

I'm too embarrassed to tell you how old some of my UFO's are!  5 years would be kinda young in my collection.  Yours looks like it was put together very accurately.  I'm having a little trouble telling what color(s) it is; Is it yellow and burgundy or dark blue?  Nice contrast anyway.

I am not sure how old my oldest UFO is at the moment.  As you know I have been really trying hard to get a lot of them done.  I was in a shoofly block swap with a group here on QWU a few years ago & have 16 blocks.  I had sewn them all in to 4 rows of 4 each, but didn't like how they all kind of mooshed together so I took that apart.  Now I'm putting them on point separated by pinwheel blocks.  Then I decided they were still kind of mooshed together so now I want to add sashing.  I'm beginning to think this quilt will never be finished!
