I saw this question on another site awhile back.  Thought it was interesting, they even posted photos.   Sooo,  I really don't have real old ones, but I would say the oldest is an unfinished Round Robin Quilt . I belonged to a Yahoo quilting group some 8 or 9 years ago., the top is lovely, with a lot of bright colors but I  haven't you he'd it since I received it back!  Ok that's my oldest one.  I was always OCD about having to finish a quilt before I started a new one.  But now. I gave graduated to 4 or 5 projects at once!  May need serious therapy though! Lol.  Any one else care to share?

I have 2 UFO's.  One I am and have been working on for about 8 months.  The other is 3 years old.  Itook a deer panel apart for a friend's baby shower, and I liked how it coame together so much I used the extra panel I bought before I forgot what I did.  It hangs in the closet in my sewing room, and 1 day I will find  a reason to layer and quilt it.  And yes I have coordinating fabric with it for the binding

Candis, I think my oldest UFO is the quilt top I put together at the 2011 Leavenworth retreat. It's made up of 20 leaf blocks everyone did. I added blocks of my hubby's wildlife cartoons which I free motion embroidered. It will get quilted "someday" as my granddaughter desperately wants this quilt. She loves fall colors but mostly I think because of grandpa's drawings.

Judy, the quilt is really pretty, and so unique! You're sooo close to being finished with it, if only....  :)

I know. Each time my granddaughter stops by she pulls out the top and gives me "the look". She turns 21 in June. I suppose it would be the perfect gift but....... Maybe I'll check what a long arm would charge for a basic all over quilting.

The oldest UFO I have is not really mine. I have a bunch of Dresden plate blocks that my aunt made in the 1930s. I plan to put them together in the not too distant future. I have a Featherweight from the 30s and want to get it cleaned up and use it for the project. I have only been quilting for a little over 5 years so my oldest UFO is probably about 4 years old.

It would be a wonderful "big event" special gift for her, one day. I have a pretty one done and stored, made for a niece when she marries. No date set, but it will keep until then!

Oh Boy won't that be a special piece, I literally can't wait for you to do that one!  I am quilting a Quilt for a family member right now, made by her great grandmother, it is also dresden plates hand stitched but it's in a hand stitched top, it's probably 60 or 70 years old or more, held up well, but needs repairs, I'm being very careful!  So scarey!!

Candis, you are so funny. OK, one way or the other, I'm making a pledge that I will bring the completed quilt to the Oregon retreat for show and tell. Lord love a duck, what have I done???
