UFO contest - post your UFO's here!

Post by WeSignificant » Fri Jan 01, 2021 7:37 am

Starting a new thread to more easily track postings. Please post a picture of your completed UFO. If you know the start date (or purchase date) that would be fun too. Anything else you want to post about your UFO would be appreciated. I bet we have some stories!

Special award for whoever posts the first completed UFO! Remember it must be completed after 12/31/2020. Hope you all waited for that last stitch until today!

Good morning and Happy New Year!
I'm ready! I'm going to start with a tote I have that has UFO's of all kinds. The first one in it is Dad's quilt. Mom made it years ago and it's beyond repairing so I had bought a new back for it and started making new blocks for the front, I'm using his quilt in the inside. It's kinda like I'm hugging moms quilt with my quilt but all the love is still there intact ❤

Tina what a great idea. Can't wait to see the finished quilt.

I have 2 to sew binding on front and back, and another one about 1/2 the binding left. Then I think my UGRR next. I am doing a Dresden Plate this year out of 1800 reproduction fabric but likely later in year until finished
Have a great day! Valerie

Once I get home I will start sashing the embroidery blocks I finished yesterday for his bible story quilt. I’m excited to get this one done. I signed up for this BOM in 2016 at Paducah show when DH fell in love with the quilt I had never done embroidery by hand probably why taken me 4 yrs lol😂😂

Let the fun start. Can’t wait to see your quilt Tina 🥰

3. Falling Triangles - Yellow version

That's all for now... this will take up a lot of space. :lol: :lol:

and doesn't include 5 other sets of Christmas swap blocks, a quilt for neighbors I started 4 years ago, the batik leaves swap from a few years ago, and 2nd Tea Party set I have! but I'm going to start with these..

Wish me luck

Wow Mary, just need to quilt and bind! I don't remember, do you quilt your own? I have to send mine out so a bit slow there. I should get the needle out and start these bindings.

REMEMBER PRIZE FOR FIRST COMPLETED UFO!
Have a great day! Valerie

Tina, your quilt turned out so nicely! You did a terrific job with your new HQ machine. And great stitching on the binding, too! I’m impressed!
