Ok, everyone, a few minutes ago I realized that I get the "dummy award" for this month. I follow My Quilt Place in my email and had gotten no messages since mid-March so therefore thought there had been no post from any of you.  Wellll somehow they were all in my Spam.  OOOOPS!   lol

Hi Gayle,

I report in faithfully when I finish a UFO.  I am now sewing the binding on my 7th UFO for 2018.

I work with scraps constantly.  I keep and use every piece 1 1/2" and bigger.  I make crumb quilts and pieced 12 1/2" squares for backings.  I also am given lots of scraps and I buy pieces for my stash from QOV if donated pieces are not suitable for QOV quilts.  So I am UFO, Scrap and Stash Busting all the time.

I also am starting www.piecingthepastquilts.com Signs of Spring Quilt this month.  I am into the Gnomes but not the Boo quilt.  And I love Sindy's Chicken quilt.

Oh I hope not Gayle.  I believe we had a couple reported again in the scrap busting.  Then I do need to catch up the stash busted.  As for UFOs, no one has posted much so I have not kept up on that.  If you do finish one, be glad to see it.  As for the Gnomes and Boo quilts, they are a challenge in themselves trying to be sure to keep up each month.

Not sure if you have seen these, but they are cute.  I love Star Wars so they fit right in with me.

Hi Beth,

I remember the Cheryl Phillips pattern.  I wanted to do the butterfly because we have similar last names.  You have a good work ethic, Beth, I'm sure you will be able to work in those 5 UFOs.  I'm going back to the sewing machine now so I won't let you down. LOL

Oh goodness Elizabeth.  You are doing awesome!  Makes you wonder how they became the UFOs when they are done.  Keep it up girl.  That is a good average right now. 

Myself, I have five UFOs going at the same time right now.  Two embroidery fish quilts (wow, do not stop in the middle of those again), a simple binding, then hand applique, then a butterfly round quilt that is at the office which takes total focus.  It is nearly ready to start doing the third cutting.  It is a Cheryl Phillips pattern.  I can see why I put it down.  Working thru it though. 

You keep up the good work.
