        Can't wait to see the snowballed pinwheel. I have difficulty snowballing blocks - I can never get it right. But I got a "Corner Pop" ruler for Christmas which is suppose to help with that. I'll have to snowball something soon to try it out - maybe a pinwheel block.

          Congratulations on finishing the Snowballed quilt. I am looking forward to seeing it.

                I like the approach you took on your list to separate out the piecing from the quilting. Hmm. Maybe I should have read your list before I wrote mine. And my En Provence is not finished either - a little piecing done, all the units done. LOL, it didn't even make my list! I do love your pinwheel quilt and I think the range of colors you chose make it really special. Great job!

                  Wow, I've been AWOL for a while. I have been quilting though! I finally bound the snowballed pinwheel and added it to the projects photos.

                    Yay! Gotta love summertime quilting for teachers. En Provence is finally pieced into a top! That was my February goal.

                      Well, I finished a top not on my list that was a BOM from the past year. I'm okay with that--at least I'm making progress!

                        Oh yeah, and I finished piecing the two donation quilts from school back in May! Hoping to get those quilted this summer.

                              Finished Doubly Charmed by Deb Tucker. Still need to finish the partner quilt to it, but good progress. Really love the FMQ on the back of it. Also finished a Jelly Roll rug. It was a fun 4th of July week project with my mom. She's still working on hers.

                              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.
