    Hmmmm .... I still haven't finished the first quilt that I took a class on. It was a Quilt-in-a-Day log cabin I started in the 70's I think.

    The 1st session taught the basics. The 2nd session (that I never got to attend) covered sandwiching, squaring and binding. It is still in my cedar chest all these years. It has to qualify for nomination for the world's oldest UFO!

    Congratulations Skymom and Granny Judy!!
    The second quilt I started over 11 years ago was a Double wedding ring quilt all cut out by hand and, I haven't gone back to it since I finished cutting the pieces.

    I am so thrilled... I've not won anything in over 20 years. Thanks to all of you for your congrats.

    I have this box of UFO's ----- I can get the top done, but it's the sandwiching and quilting that never seem to happen. I keep telling myself I am building up a "go to" stash for future needs and gifts. It's been 5 years since I started quilting and placing tops in my BOX.

    I started a flying geese quilt as wedding present in 2001. I didn't get it done, because my father died in May and then we had to move my mother, sell their house, settle the estate. Then my nephews wedding was the weekend before 9-11. I have been wanting to finish it, but then my mother died, husband had surgery and was laid up for several months. And I was working part time. Then I had to have a knee replacement- I wore out my knee from too many years of kid and sewing. And I could continue, but the end of this whining tale is that my nephew got divorced. And the quilt is still in its unfinished state, 14 years later.

    Only started quilting just over a year ago. I started a jelly roll quilt at a class over a year ago and it still isn't finished. I have finished other things though.
    Congratulations to the winners!

    Congrats to points winners! From first stitch to last, it took me 3 years to finish a 6 block wall hanging, pieced and quilted by hand. In all fairness, it was my first attempt at quilting. I have now graduated to machine piecing and quilting. However, I have projects that I haven't even started yet that have been in the drawer longer than 3 years. Why is it that the most recently purchased project seems to be the one I am working on?
