And It is Finished, First UFO of 2016

Finally, after several years or sporadic attempts, the quilt is finished. This morning I sewed the last stitch in the binding and then found a label and sewed it to the back of the quilt. Now on to one of the many other UFO's that are waiting for me to get to them. To the uninitiated a UFO is an UnFinished Object. Most of us have several waiting in queue to be finished. I personally have, a baby quilt that is half quilted (my next project to finish), a table runner waiting to be quilted, six quilt fronts waiting to be sandwiched, pinned and quilted...four by hand, three by machine. Then there are the partially sewn quilt fronts and quilt patches...... Maybe I should get back to work and finish some of these projects. I will try to post my progress as I reclaim my sewing room.

The prairie points are so easy to do. Once I found instructions and tried it (many, many years ago) at least half my finished quilts have prairie points.

The quilt is gorgeous. Good luck on the rest. While my husband is out I should dump out my "craft" cupboard and throw out the scraps and things I am never going to use. Then maybe I would feel like finishing a few things.

Throwing away scraps is too painful for me....back to sewing.

@Morleyhunt I have to face the fact they have sat there for years. Anyway, too late there isn't enough time left before hubby returns. I need to make it look like I moved from this laptop at some point!

Congratulations! My goal for 2016 is to clear out a bunch of UFOs...I guess that means I should go get busy!

Yup...how soon do you want the quilt frame. There is also at least one hoop I can set aside for you.

One down, several more to go. Isn't that usually how things go?

As long as I start less than I finish it should be okay.

A lot of work has obviously gone into that quilt - you must have a lot of patience. It looks lovely.

Thank you. I enjoy the process. There is no step I would actually skip if given the opportunity.

You are so clever. Sounds like you have a lot on the list of sewing tasks.

Now I've brought this to your attention again, do you still have any of these items to finish?

I've finished a lot of UFOs. Unfortunately I've also started a few new projects that aren't complete yet. Right now I'm tackling some Christmas gifts for the grandkids.

@Morleyhunt Haha - got sidetracked again! I think it's fine to have UFOs as long as you get to them eventually.

@JudyEv I have finished quite a few projects that have been languishing in a box somewhere. Most are at least now in queue to be worked on.

Thank you. I think this one earned a first place ribbon at the fair.
