Area 51

Straightening up my sewing room I found UFO's I don't remember that is bad! I am joining an open sew group once a month and I'm only bringing UFO's starting with Taylor's graduation quilt. I pieced the top at a retreat in May but he's grown a foot since I bought this pattern. I picked up a green check homespun for the first border and will use left-over pieces from the top for the outside border. Not sure what I'm going to use for the backing but it will keep him warm at college in Burlington, VT.

The star's on Spencer's quilt needs to be machine appliqued before the borders can be put on. I was originally going do do another pattern but he saw this one and I was over-ruled. The nine & four patches were part of my round robin for guild. In the guild's round robin we pass out baggies of pre-cut blocks w/directions and a picture of how the block should look. Your name gets put in after you've made 6 blocks for other members. This is the second quilt I've made with round robin blocks. Hopefully, my name will get pulled soon, I already have my next pattern picked out.

Some of my other UFO's:
The was a guild BOM using common fabric. Going to be a runner for my bureau.

Totally forgot about this one, 2005 Thimbleberries Club, will be made into a tablerunner.

This was from an Alphabet Block Swap I ran at guild. The background on the blocks had to match the letter. Mine was the X block, the background is a black & white check with X's from a crossword fabric line. I decided to be different and started adding wonky borders on my set.

2008 Little Lamb Quilt Shop BOM, maybe I'll finish a few more or maybe these will be a runner.

I stopped this 12 block series deciding that I would like it better in wool. This will make a nice little walling hanging for the dining room.

Oh look, the aliens are starting to show up!

I love the first UFO you showed, it'll look awesome once the borders are on! Wow. I love homespuns - I have never worked with them though.
Finishing UFOs may just be the most rewarding thing ever! Good luck with yours :)
