    Well I have already done #8 as I switched it for #12 and I finished #2 on Thursday (will post a photo later), but I'm still behind with numbers 9 & 10 and both are ready to sandwich. I'll see what I can get done in June but I have yet another Linus quilt ready to FM, I think I'm addicted to making them!!!


      Finished the Linus quilt which wasn't on my list, but well.....

      Will start quilting #9 this week, hope to finish it by the weekend but in between I'll be making some of the fundraising items from my list as they're needed for September and I have 2 holidays and a few weekends away booked before then. Better get a move on!!


        I really needed to get some of the Linus quilts finished so I can hand on heart move onto finishing my own quilts and knocked a couple of numbers off my list at the same time!!


          I see my #4 is an autumn quilt, do you think it will cool me down?


            I've finished #9, the log cabin quilt for DH's birthday.

            I'm working on finishing the square in a square topper which will go on my quilting list for next year.


              I've finished the square in a square, came out bigger than I thought and DH wants it for our bed. It still needs quilting which I'll do in the new year.


                I've seen the picture of those two quilts, and they are both very pretty.

                  My Dresden plate cushion is finished. And I'm half way through quilting one of the Christmas throws on my UFO list.


                    Well I had a very productive November. Managed to finish # 9, 10 & 11. Thought I had more or less caught up but have noticed there's still 3 outstanding. Oh well may manage to fit one more in before the end of the year. Any left will go onto 2019 list.

                    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 2018? This group is for you! We have a fun way to get those projects done in 2018.

                    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.
