Well, I have really been working on small panels and things in the charity tubs trying to finish theM!  I got a bunch done for a large fund raiser!  now, I need to work on my own things and pulled out:

a table runner ready to quilt!

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.

oh, my log cabin needs 2 borders!

who knows after this?…

I'm pretty sure I could add some one or two offs to your pile...if only to see what you do with them!

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.

Ok, gotcha on. Wow, your UFO's go back so far! It's neat to have all that history! :D I'm always excited when I'm pulling fabrics and they are dated around turn of the century (from my stash) or 80's/90's from garage sale finds. LOL!!!!
