If you're a REAL quilter, you have at least one UFO (unfinished object) and one WIP (work in progress) stashed in the closet or stacked on a shelf. Maybe you just need quilting suggestions, or maybe a fresh eye from a new online friend can help with block arrangements. How about a UFO swap? Any UFO conversation is welcome.

Here is my Valentine Quilt and the other nightmare to quilt UFO.

Comment by Deanna Davis on February 6, 2012 at 2:46pm

My personal strategy is 'get r done'. I have works in progress, UFO's for one reason or another, but life happens. I've moved 3x, and am working on a project planned or WIP, but then someone needs a baby quilt, so it's a quick distraction but then I put myself back on my planned track. The cancer quilt I did was a quick one between projects, but it together quick and easy. And now that it is done, it's back to this log cabin that I have been saving since 2006(?). But as I piece this log cabin, I am also going to pull out a project for my cousin's daughter that I planned 6 yrs ago when she was born -- she's now in kindergarten. So that's on the list next !

@Elizabeth.  Welcome to my world.  We are in for some fun this year.  It is killing me not to start a new project, but the accomplishment I am feeling on finishing these is so worth it.  My starting a new one is actually cutting up one that I only just started.  You are with me on the system, great job!!!! 

May I share my accomplishments?  Ok, will anyway so I have a cheering squad.  I finished the binding on the chicken quilt.  i know, did it by machine, but used a feather quilt stitch that is programed in and did chicken steps on binding, looks so cool.  I know, no photos, but will tomorrow.  got to tired last night.  then i even pu the eyes on each chicken and it looks so cool.  Then I quilted two more quilts, sewed the binding on one side, send them out to be finished by someone else.  Carpal tunnel is so bad today, that I am going to have to take a break from the binding.  I loaded another quilt on machine.  After I finish that one, and I do not have to work again this weekend, will put on the four cusotmer quilts I got in the mail.  I had to step back and take a look at them again to see how to quilt them.  One has black blocks with a gorgeous pink/purple floral.  I think I am going to do some fancy feathrs on it to compete with that floral.  Still thinking.  I did take out my husbands wilderness quilt that needs just one more block to complete it.  So he laid them on the design wall how he wanted them, now to do the sashing, which is pieced squares, have the border fabric ready and will hopefully be done this week if my hand will stay functioning.  Any hand doctors you know in Spokane WA that are good at carpal tunnel surgery?

You are all such an inspiration! To let you know how cluttered my life is, I found the FQ  I was to mail in a pile of "stuff" so I will not be participating in this 2 month UFO.  I have to wonder if I didn't put it there on purpose as there is no way I was going to get my piddly little 3 UFO's done. Now I have many more than 3 UFOs I just picked the three I thought I could get to. I will continue to stop by here as I love to see what you all are up to.

Hi Everyone,

Beth, the system has been in place about quilting on UFOs a little every day.  Along with my exercises which I also do every day, I've finished the hand binding on a QOV and have 2 1/2 sides done on the other.

But I have a confession.  Remember when I signed up with this group and told you that I had 117 UFOs.  I opened another box in cleaning my closet and I found some more.  I now have 125 UFOs.  There can be no more, though.  Everything is cleaned out and all UFOs  accounted for.  And I haven't started anything new since Jan. 1, 2012.

Hi Beth and Elizabeth the pattern is the Tahoe Tote by Pink Sand Beach Designs was created by Nancy Green thank you for offering assistance I appreciate it.

Hi Sheila,

If I were in your spot, I would look at the pattern for information on the designer or the pattern company and try to find their  internet site or google them. 

If you provide us with the information, someone may have made that tote and remember how to make it. 

Comment by Beth A. North on February 3, 2012 at 6:04pm

@ Sheila - who is pattern by?  Give us a bit more info there and maybe we can instruct you via internet?  Otherwise the LQS you attended for the class.  Someone there might be able to help.

I everyone new to this group, I've got several things in vary stages of completion. My NY's resolution was to finish them but I just can't get motivated. One is a tote class I took and the instructor didn't allow enough time and had way too many people in the class. I've search all over the net and can't find any tutorial's to help me finish. Her instructions make no sense at all, can someone recommend a place that I can find some help. I have the outside and bottom done but I don't know how to put the pockets into the lining and finishing it up.
