I hope the rest of you are doing better about finishing your UFO's than I am.  My quilting business has picked up a bit so I have less time to work on UFO's.  Plus I have had a very special request to finish a quilt for a certain little girl and that trumps UFO's any day.  Good news is that I finished Raleigh's quilt but bad news is I have a graduation quilt and a retirement quilt plus the Brownwood Quilt Show coming up in April and May so there is no rest for the weary, or is that wicked? 

February's UFO that I was suppose to work on was my oldest UFO, a double wedding ring that started out as a queen size quilt and then turned to a wall hanging, and is now in the trash.  I just can't bring myself to finish it.  I cut it out in 1994, long before I knew anything about templates or paper piecing, so you can imagine what a nightmare it was. 

Let's just move forward from here and concentrate on March's UFO project.  The number to work on for March is :

which is my Stars and Stripes Sampler.  I double I will finish it but I do hope to work on a few more blocks.  There is lots of applique in this quilt.
How did you do this month?  Did you finish your UFO or at least work on it?  Leave me a comment and let me know.

  1. Oh, Doris -- I'm so sorry you felt you had to trash your DWR. That's about the same time I started my DWR -- which was an on-again off-again project for years. When I finally said "I'm going to finish this!" I realize my issue was cutting - so I asked a friend to get her husband to make acrylic templates to match my paper templates. What a difference. Now if I'll get sit still long enough to finish quilting that last row of rings...


Your comments make my day. I love to hear what you have to say. Please leave me a comment.
