Advancing UFOs

I wanted to finish a few of my UFOs in July. I only finished one. You may have seen it in my last post. Check it out if you haven't seen it already. Although I would have liked to have seen a few more I feel good about the progress I have made on two other UFOs. I quilted my 45 special. I just stippled it. You can see the quilting in this pic.
And more of the quilt here. It just needs a binding. Which I will wait on since I put flannel on the back. For some reason sitting with a flannel quilt on my lap in 90 degree weather is not appealing to me. But fall is coming and when the temperatures drop it will be a cozy pastime. I also finished all the flying geese for this Nickle Quilt. In fact I have oodles left over. I made what the pattern called for but I think they made a mistake because I have enough to make another quilt in the Nickle Quilts book. I'm leaning toward the Dutchmen's Puzzle. Nice that most of the work is already done. I really like how this border turned out. I just need to add another solid border. I am not going to make it as big as the pattern calls for or my quilt will be dragging on the floor all around my bed. It's already 96" square. I might ask my friend if I can use her long arm to quilt it. I don't think I want to wrestle this one on my Bernina.
Now although my UFO list shows the same number as at the begining of the month. Being I added the Dutchmen's Puzzle. They are advancing and who knows maybe someday I can get that number to decrease.

  1. You will get there :) I was curious if you had a long-arm, but you answered that! Hope you have a productive week.

  2. I think most quilters would be lost without a big pile of UFOs.

  4. You sure have been turning out the quilts. I love the Christmas one and I know your friend will too. I also like the scrappiness of the flying gees ones, although it took me a few minutes to actually see the geese. Great job on all!
