I am actually just now quilting mine,  I am donating it to the silent auction at our Quilt  Show in June.  Will only have about a week to finish it when I get back from my trip to my daughters graduation and visiting my 2 sons and grandkids.  Will be gone from May 9-26.

Too funny,

I have to finish up MQ 8 as well.  I am still making those tiny 9 patches,  I hope I have them all, my cat has been finding it very comfortable to sit on them.  I knew I shouldn't have left them out, right under the window....

All we can do is try our best] and encourage each other.  I'll be your moral support

We CAN do this

hehe

It is a deal Annie. As for the 9 patches...it feels so good when they are done, and especially when you, go look everyone..a 2" 9 patch and I did it !

I never did finish mine.  My mother wanted to learn to quilt and practice on some fabrics, so I gave her the entire batch of them.  She was worried she was going to mess them up, but I told her that she couldn't do anything that would ruin them.  She could play to her heart's content.  Made me feel better to not have ot look at them again, and to give her something to play with.  I just can't do that scrappy...much as I tried.

I need to finish mine too. I think I'll pull mine out, maybe this can be my May UFO to complete.

I like that Jacy, lets put months in front of our UFO, and then on the next round we can throw a year haha. But seriously don't think mine can make the May mark too many b days coming up. But maybe shoot for July... or summer of 2013........

Tami,

I promised myself I was going to master the art of knitting and not stop until I felt good about my end product.  As it turns out I am completely hooked on knitting to the point that I have neglected my poor sewing machine.  I am going to sew when I get home from work today,  I am going to sew when I get home from work today,   I am going to sew when I get home from work today.....

your funny Annie. Well dont forget tos sew when you get home. I learned to knit when I was like 11. I had a hard time being a lefty . they tried everything and I just couldnt get the knit stitch . They finally said well keep working on it but the group needs to move a long. So they started teaching the pearl stitch. I was like ... like this. I was the first one to get it while everyone else struggled. So needless to say they told me to do just the opposite and I got the knit stitch.  I created my own wool hoodie pattern back in like 06, because my boys just wouldnt wear coats. But I have never gotten the socks down. Guess I need to practice more.

Tami,

How are you doing on MQ8?  I attended my very first quilting retreat and had a blast.  I was able to work on MQ8 and am really liking it more and more.  It's a pattern I would never have chosen myself, but so glad I am making it.  Nothing like having to think outside the box.  

I also had a big AHA moment, I should never iron press my pieces as I go, as I usually do with larger pieces, instead I finger pressed until whole block was assembled, then I took it to the iron and pressed.  Much better and yielding a pretty accurate finished block.
