I'm happy with that roll of the dice! I have some other things I must take care of first today but hope to get started working on number three by this afternoon. Thanks for motivating us. Good luck everyone, I hope we have 30 completed UFO's by the end of the month.


Keep calm and carry on

That's a good number for me to start with! I'm excited and need to refresh myself on all the colors and directions. Sounds like a good project for today and tomorrow - very cold here and snow is coming.

Thanks so much, WQFC, for reminding us which UFO it is that we will work on! That certainly saves time that it would take to sort through the post-holiday clutter to find my list that I carefully placed somewhere that would ensure that it wasn't misplaced!!! Lol!!!

Now, on to work!!

Yea! It just so happens that my new (old as in 1980's gammill) is just waiting to be tested out in my basement. Time to conquer the fear and get busy! After all....it is an "ugly" quilt so it's perfect for practice. It will still be warm!

Happy stitching everyone in this new year!

Good Morning! I'm up with the dogs, but not moving yet! I was up late last night!

ilovemy4kids - I appreciate that you saved me some chocolate! I may need it later today if I don't get a nap! LOL!

Rainbow - have you finished yours yet?!! ha ha

Angela - I'll get my lists updated!!! Glad you can join in!.

Here's a sneak peak of what I'm working on this month. Have the top all pieced. I'll be adding the white narrow border and then the wider burgundy. I honestly can't remember if I've purchased binding! I bought a backing that I love so much, I might use it for something else!

Jill, that's going to be gorgeous! I'll get upstairs and press my top shortly, so I can add a pic. It's been folded up for quite a while...

So glad you're doing this, sometimes I need a nudge.

3 is do-able for me, too! There is one (and I'm not telling what number) that I am dreading to work on. Put it on the list on purpose to finish it, but it's not 3!

I don't have time to get going today but try to get at it on Friday when I am off work. This is one that I really want to get done, because after all it is winter, I should get it put up before it is to late! HaHa, only 15 years late at this point!

Glad you're having a relaxing day Jill! From the BOM thread I see you also got your BOMs laid out.... good for you!

Rainbow, you make me laugh! I think you're going to be the prime cheerleader on this thread!! I'll need some cheers!

I did get out the three charity quilts.
My local quilt shop has a charity group and at the shop there's a stash of donated fabric you can choose from to make a charity quilt.
I got binding cut and pressed for all three quilts... two baby and one lap-type.
Tomorrow I should be able to sew it on and then have only the hand stitching on the back!

My project will start with a quick trip to the fabric store for some flannel border fabric. I think I have enough for backing, but what I have is too busy for the borders.

I have my top and back completely done. I am trying to use stash as much as possible but I don't think I have enough batting. May have to stop at Fabric Depot after work tomorrow; that could be expensive! LOL

It hasn't taken me long to figure out that I'm not good at long term planning! I know part of the reason I had to put my project down was because I didn't have borders. So, I bought borders...in August, yet I never considered backing or binding at that time.

Bought a backing last weekend and still never thought of a binding!

I hope in the future, I'll start thinking of all these things in advance.

As far as batting is concerned, I really wish I had enough space to just order a roll when it's on sale.

Headie - if you buy more things tomorrow, you can make sure you have enough projects to create UFO's for the future!!!

Malou - I don't envy you with all that binding!! CookieQuilts loves binding, maybe she can give you a hand!

SeeingStars - Good luck finding the fabric you need! I bought my backing, but I love it so much that I might have to shop for something different to use! I make it harder than it has to be!!! LOL!

Top is finished. Mike likes it! Tomorrow l will sandwich and quilt the baby quilt l am currently working on. That baby's not due until April! Can you believe l'm ahead on that one? Then l will sandwich/quilt # 3.

Now, if l can just keep this up l'll be doing good! Oh, and all these projects are from stash! Hopefully, l will not need to buy backing. l keep going to the closet and pulling out a piece that will be just right. So far, so good!

Thank you Jill!
We'll here it is, my #3. I pressed it today and was reminded why it's a UFO. 6 PC hexagons ( one block wonder) mine just doesn't lay flat. I hope to get it loaded on my mid-arm tomorrow and, as they say, IT'LL QUILT OUT!
I started it Feb '09 and added the borders Dec '12, only because I was getting ready to start another 1BW.
I'll be very glad to have it off my list. Best of luck to everyone.

Oh so pretty!

Found my box that had the projects in them...had put it in an "important place" (you know what the means). got out #3. I thought, " I get to work on this one!!Smile I think I had thought before..."Oh I need/should work on something else". So with this challenge comes a sense of freedom I have about finishing these now. How wonderful!

My machine is at the shop , but should be back this weekend. My other machine that died last week really did. Burned out the motor. $500. won't get that fixed until summer. Thank goodness I had 2.

I think like WQFC that I liked the backing so much I used it for something else. Well, time to dig through stash, or put a SURPRISE on the back. Well now to clean off the ironing board and press it!

Well, I at least know where the top is so I can get it out and get it on the frame. However, no backing big enough so need to make a Joann's run. Grrrrr!

CookieQuilts, if your centers of your OBW have a bit of hump to them there are a couple things you could do to get them flat.

One is using starch and steam: Spray with starch or sizing until nicely wet, let it soak in, then using your iron steam it (I press it without steam) and it will help shrink the fabrics flat. I have used this on quilt blocks that I cut the curves too tight and they became D cups. I got them flat and trimmed them. They quilted great.

The other possibility is for the times when the center point where all the seams come together. Put a flat wooden board under the bump, another board on top of the bump. then whack it good with a hammer or rubber mallet. It will help flatten that seam bump.

I have gotten both of these methods from some long arm quilters on the APQS forum.

I think Cookie's OBW is gorgeous! I went to a lecture from a long armer. She said if the hump is an 'A' cup, it will quilt out. If it's more like a 'C' cup, you are in trouble!!!

Nancy - glad you found your bag!!! Your machine woes make me sad! Frown Glad you are happy with how the challenge is working...wait until 4 months from now! Sooner or later, the zinger will come up!!! LOL!

Carol - good luck buying your backing...will you pick one up for me?!! I don't have the best track record lately...bought a batik border I didn't use and now I have the Kaffe fabric that I just know I can't use for a back!

Susan - I can't wait to see your blue kaleidoscope!!! Sounds so pretty!

Thanks Malou, Madelyn and Jill. It is more like an A cup, some AA. I've done the steam pressing but without starch, will try adding that. I've never even heard of using the boards and hammer, but can see how that would work.

I'm excited to see some of the finished projects, they all sound so great. There will probably be some that I can't help but start myself.... Uh oh, that'll probably create more UFO's

WQFC and Cookie Quilts - love the pictures so far, can't wait to see these done. I think Rainbow is going to beat us all with how much she gets done during this challenge.

I don't need encouragement when it comes to shopping for fabric. I have so much now I could open my own store! I try to go into that place with blinders on and only get exactly what I need. We will see how well that works tonight. LOL

I've added borders to the 2 smaller flannel baby quilts and the largest one is one the frame now. Woohoo! I think I'll have all 3 ready to bind by the end of the weekend. It will feel great to have this first UFO finished soon.

CookieQuilts - Your top is gorgeous. I'm sure you can quilt out the extra bulk. It's not noticeable in the photo.

WQFC - those borders will look terrific with your top. I adore batiks!

Thanks, SeeingStars. I'm kinda new at doing my own quilting, so I'm a bit nervous about it. I just took my 5th charity quilt off the frame, so this will be my first quilt, off the frame, that I plan to keep. In fact, when I was taking that photo, my DH said "you're not giving that one away, are you?" So... I think he likes it.

RN55 - I bet your #3 is with my notebook that I couldn't find before leaving for my Modern Quilt Guild meeting tonight!

I have to tell you all, our guild meeting assignment tonight was to bring a UFO!! We are going to work on them with the goal to be to finish by the end of the year. I almost brought one of my UFO's from this challenge, but I didn't! I brought one that isn't even blocks yet...just a bunch of half sewn pieces in a box!!!

Cookie's quilting skills are good! She just needs to build a little confidence in herself!!! I have confidence in her!!!

Seeing Stars - you are making awesome progress!!! I haven't done any more with mine since taking that picture!! But, that changes tomorrow!!!

Haven't heard from Headie yet...wonder if she ever made it back out of the fabric store or if she's still in there shopping?!!

Still looking for #3! What I thought was it was extra fabric. I'm not really sure how to bind it and the instructor for the class was not one of my favorites so I may have really hid it though I know i still have it..

Cookie Quilts, beautiful quilt! Love the colors.

Well, my day didn't go like l had planned. l got up this morning with itchy watery eyes! lt's just hard to do anything when you can see. They did get better as the day went on and l finally got to sew. l quilted the baby quilt that l already had ready. Didn't want it to become an UFO! Then l made a block from Sandra's aunt. l also crocheted 2 angels to send to her aunt. Pics of those are on the stashbusters thread as they were all stash!

And l crocheted some on a baby afghan. My hands won't let me crochet much. Found out today that shower is on the 25th. l'll have to keep at it to get it done on time.

Then l did work on # 3! Well, not much but l got it sandwiched, but not pinned. lt'll be waiting on me when l get home from town tomorrow. Have a funeral of an elderly lady from church to go to and help with the dinner afterward.

Then l get to do some shopping! Got a gift card, and gotta see if l want to spend it now or not! l haven't been to town all Christmas Break. l love being at home though.

School starts back on Monday so l need to get as much done as l can before then b/c that's usually when l stop. And, oh, it's hard to get me started again! LOL

Come on! Find that # 3! Get what you need to finish it! Get busy sewing!!! Smile

I have been able to get my #3 sewn with all seams completed. Now to do the binding on it, as well as add the pockets and put in the zipper. I also plan to bind all the inside seams. I wear enough thread on my clothes without having more added from jackets.

I am happy to say I made it out of the fabric store and spent less than $20! Batting was 30% off and I got two skiens of embroidery floss for a lions head I am embroidering on the back of a vest for my son. They had beautiful fabric on sale for 50% off but I had to leave it all behind.

My sister is coming over for brunch tomorrow, she goes back to Cairo in a few days so this will be the last time I see her until next summer. I will get back to #3 after brunch.

Hope you find yours soon Sue Stitches.
