Diane Morgan:Can we include the projects we are currently working on at QCA?
Haha! depends on the definition of "currently working on!" My first quilt from our first MQ doesn't count because I worked on it last month. But my second does, as I haven't touched it since the end of November!
Vicki Stearns:Baby quilt - started for our oldest son who turns 33 in August, top never finished
Vicki, I don't feel so guilty any more! I have some projects almost that age. But I think I have many more than you. Yours is actually a short list. One day a year ago, I actually started a list, after page 2 I stopped, and never finished the list! LOL!
I love Starbucks, but I am not taking any offers, but will accept donations for prizes. Also, as done previously, I may submit my own UFOs but won't be getting any points.
Very good rules Patti. I am so proud, there is not one quilt that I have not worked on in the last couple of months as I have done a bit on all of them since joining this group. I do have 1 shirt and 2 cross stitches that I have started many years ago and they are sitting. I will watch and cheer you guys on though as I plug away at these 2 baby quilts, a quilt for my nephew, a wall hanging for my bedroom and the table runner that now is fixed but I am putting off quilting till after my fmq class.
I have one problem with this contest...lol.. If I finish alot of my UFOs .... Where the heck am I going to put all these.. After the last UFO contest I filled up m my coffee table storage and dont know where else to put all these things...lol..May have to buy a storage space for all these UFOs...lol...Thanks to Patti for this motivation.. I think I need this and maybe a kick in the but to finish all these UFOs...lol..
I will leave the motivation up to Patti. But you can consider yourself kicked in the butt.....a swift get moving kick......LOL
Hop Ouch... lol.. thanks.. Nana .. I think Ill need this to get going.. with summer here its hard to stay indoors.. maybe I can move my sewing macine and supplies out in the front porch or my back three season porch...lol..
That sounds like a perfect solution. I have set up my sewing machine on my covered back deck a few times during the early summer months before it gets too hot to be comfortable. I think I waited to long this year to do it as it is mostly in the high 80s and low 90s already.
The final rules are now posted under "pages." When participants post their pictures, I am asking people to post them by their name first such as "Patti's UFO #1" That way, if someone can easily find all my UFOs by looking under names and going to Patti.
I am still working on this media thing, but at least this will help us get started.
