Because you have no UFO's???

well, not exactly.  I have a 7 I spy tops hanging in the closet but since I just quilted 8 last month and 4 of those are still stacked up waiting to go somewhere, I don't really don't want to quilt any more right now as they take more space quilted.  And I have a EPP hand work project that I'm not sure how or even if I even want to finish it.  I guess I think of UFO's as things that have been sitting around for a  long time that make me feel guilty.  And I really don't have any of those right now - the really old ones I forced myself to finish last year.  I guess I feel "caught up" right now.

made a table topper from left over triangles from above runner and need to quilt it now!

finishing an apron that came in some donations…it is ready for the finishing topstitching.

Ok I got my two projects:

Miniature 30's Pansy quilt: quilt, bind, label and hanging sleeve. Well aged UFO begun 1998 or 1999. I got stuck on how to quilt it. Loaded on the 14 foot longarm table and marked with a tiny baptist fan. Handquilting this would be a nightmare with all the tiny seams 

2. Honey bee block pillow. Begun around 1984 or 1985 and my second quilt project and oldest UFO!!! Need to finish handquilting and sew into pillow cover. Label. This one is way overdue and will be displayed on the bed.

Thank you. It is one of my older UFO's. It is now quilted with a tiny baptist fan, not perfect but quilted, so on to binding and label.

Thank you, happy to say quilting done so onto binding next.
