WOO HOO!!!! Just counted...and have finished officially 10 UFO's...



Ok, I just counted through several of my finished UFO's and I have officially finished 10 UFO's....unfortunately ...not the 7 I had initially planned. Shame. Now I did complete.... 5 of the original 7, but it is sad to think .... I found about 5 more, while digging for the bits to finish these 10! I also did my first Paid longarm commission! She only wanted a simple pantograph, and I had already practiced it on my bedspread from previous posts...so I did hers.... and it was a little twin... turned out very nicely...if I do say so. I didn't think to take a photo of it... so may have to ask for another chance to do that in future. But did

get a photo of the recipient of the houndstooth I made for a local college fellow. He wanted a cozy lap quilt for his girl at the game. She loves brown and gold. And I am working on another UFO, which was started before the Wee one was born, these very bright blocks, have now been pieced together, but have to add borders to the top,as it is just under a double. Hope to have it finished over the weekend. I am planning on practicing on my DD in laws quilt...to get straight line practice, then will attempt the customer quilt. So may have a few photos to share after the weekend. If all things go well. My ship DID NOT come in this week, BUT I have been assured that it is LOADED on the truck to arrive late next week! Now I am leaving next weekend to go see the lovely little Princess, then on to see the Wee one, and will be gone until election day...so no unpacking if if arrives too late. It really may be Christmas before I get to open the boxes! AT this rate!!! Hope you all are having a lovely weekend. Its going to be a good one for me.

I think the choice of quilt pattern can sometimes "make or break" the look of a unique color combo; such as the brown and orange. And it looks like you did the combo justice in selecting a houndstooth pattern. I really, really like it.

That's incredible! I can't imagine finishing 10 UFO's. I am green with envy. Your work is fabulous! I really like your Halloween table topper. I may run out and get some fabric and make one.

Hi Colleen, wow! You are doing just great!! I am so happy to mark off some finisbs for you...shall it be 5 or would you like to claim 7?? Either is fine for me. I'm come across more as I dig for finishing bits that I need. Which has led to binding 2 that I've not counted but did mark down. It feels so good.
I'm tickled to hear you are machine quilting for people. I'm sure you will do a wonderful job! Hugs, Finn

Love the houndstooth. I've always always wanted to make one of those.

*woo hoo* Doesn't it feel great to have some finishes! And a customer quilt too boot!! You are really scootin' right along. I do hope that ship arrives soon - you must be so tired of waiting.
