    I love the Jason Yenter fabrics! I have some of the “In the Beginning”. They are beautiful. Can’t wait to see if you do something with yours.

        Three tops ready for quilting! Making the quilt sandwich is the worst task in quilting for me, but once that is done, I feel so accomplished.

          Old Newbie - 2 are queen/king size, so I may just rent a LA for a few days, but one is calling for me to do special quilting. The bird one is about a twin size, and I do have a table I can use to pin it. I just can't crawl on the floor to sandwich any more like I used to.

          Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

            I finished sewing the top of my #9 quilt. It is a disappearing 9 patch, and it finishes 81 x 95". Quilting it has been assigned to another number.

            I started working on #11, just so I can decided whether I want to sew it by hand or machine sew it.

              I've made some progress on the QAYG 2 1/2" hexies. Dh had cataract surgery this week, so I brought to hospital and then to Dr follow-up appt. I also have been clearing a pile of fabrics & small UFOs on sewing table. I cut scraps and also panel blocks and have found them a storage space. I made a reefs le apron from a panel. It's been cut for 2 years. Took less than 30 mins to make. Also have another same panel. I will make another apron to sell at show. Also finished sewing the microwave cosies for plates.

              This week I sandwiched a VQC quilt and it is sitting on Sweet16 table to sew. I will start piecing the back of quilt from leftover fabrics.

              Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

                Wow Suzanne, you always get so much done, it amazes me. Love that bunny apron, a great reminder that spring isn't too far away.

                  Bowl cozies are on my sewing list in a few weeks, but it’s not added to this list. It’s part of a weekly sewing challenge. Trying everything to get back into my sewing mojo. So far, it’s working pretty good! Love your finishes!

                    Well it's the last day of February and I didn't do #10, but I have been productive, especially at last week's retreat. I cut and made a twin size quilt top for mom, pattern Suzette by Clothworks. I finished DH' s flannel Northlands quilt top. I changed the pattern and it's now done, so back over to him to sandwich and quilt. I also made large microwave bowl cozies, PUL snack bags for GKs, Beer coasters to sell, sandwiched and quilted a VQC top. Before I left I tackled and made a replacement seat cover for glider plane. Only 7 more to go.

                    Now ow to put back my sewing room in order.

                    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

                      Just reading your lists makes my hands hurt!! I have found out that even if you have a lot of UFOs that you have the potential for lots of finishes in a short period of time. Mentally I'm a dozen quilts ahead of where I actually at, which is plugging along on Jeff's retirement quilt. Good Luck Suzanne...you can do it!!!

                        I can't figure out where to add pictures within a group, so I will try adding in post.

                            If you add a picture in a post, that picture automatically goes to photos. I like your lovely finishes, Suzanne. The on point animal one seems especially appropriate for where that picture was taken.

                              I finished quilting mom's quilt top that I made at February retreat. I used a combination of ruler work and FMQ. It's not perfect, but it's done and I think it's looks pretty good since I washed it. I just need to add label and deliver to her residence.

                              I have finished 2 Victoria tops, and first one is in quilting phase. I will continue to make them during our isolation, as meetings are cancelled. Unfortunately they closed the head office, so they are not accepting or delivering quilts until C-19 is over. This is sad as many cancer patients are in need. I keep them in my prayers.

                                She does, when she remembers. Unfortunately it was delivered / given to her on Mother's day and this is when she was being treated for Covid, She doesn't always remember it. The small purple one I made her when I started quilting, that one she knows well and proud to tell everyone that her daughter made it. My skills have improved a lot since then, but she loves it.
                            2020 Fabulous Finishing Group

                            About this Group

                            Do you have some UFOs (UnFinished Objects) that you want to finish? Are you having a hard time choosing what to finish next, or are you just not feeling motivated? Do you have some specific goals you want to complete in 2020? This group is for you! We have a fun way to get those projects done in 2020.

                            Here is how it works.

                            First, you create a list, numbered from 1 - 12, of 1) things you want to finish; 2) OR projects you want to do; 3) OR a combination of 1 and 2. Then, you post your list to this group. (You can edit and change your list at any time.)

                            Every month, this group will publish a random number between 1 - 12. We will each work on that number from our list. If you prefer to do your list in a particular order, you can certainly do it that way as well. When you have finished your project, please post a picture here as well.

                            We’re here to support each other. It’s amazing how knowing what project to tackle helps to motivate us to finish what we start.
