Your quilt on the wall really came out looking very nice. Urgh UFO, I don't want to think about it, I made a short list of 12. Will show everyone next week.

Happy New Year!

Thanks! Now to get it basted and quilted. Ugh.I hate basting so much.

I can't even go pull out all my ufos or I will be too overwhelmed. I try to just focus on a few at a time or I'll get overwhelmed and not work on anything at all.

Happy New Year to you too! Also,you won the pillow cover prize, so I need to know whether you want fandom themed or just up to 3 colors if you don't want fandom.

Crikey, I forgot to comment about that. Think colors will be great. I love brown, orange and blue.

Ok, brown orange and blue it is. Probably won't make it until Ken's quilt is finished. Hoping to get it basted today.

Love a lady with plans, I also love your goals for Linus, it does keep you more focussed I think, still a trying to find something here that is similar, all the Linus groups are very political here and am not sure that's a good fit for me, love a good political battle but not so much when quilting. Glad you had a nice Christmas and happy new year to you all.

They are political? Are they affiliated with the International Project Linus? That is bad. I hope you find something. I won't say I love everyone in my Linus group, but I've found enough people I get along with to get along well. For a while I was going to quit but I stuck it out and outlasted the folks that were most troublesome. Have you asked your local hospital or clinic? They might know of group.

I think after I get a couple of things done I'll be digging through my UFOs to get them more organized with your categories, but for now I just want to get Ken's quilt done!

You've got this! You are SO close. Have you decided how you're going to quilt it? Big meander is my vote. Get that sucker DONE!

I decided a long time ago I didn't want to FMQ because I don't want to quilt on the "windows". So I'm doing SiD in that main part of the quilt, then I plan to FMQ the tan border. Not sure about the blue border. Prob FMQ foot doing straight ish lines.

Oh, that does make sense. I think my knee jerk is fmq because I can go, go, go. Did I mention I'm still making pebbles? OI!

Plans are good, but I tend to overplan and don't get much done.

Your hubby's quilt is beautiful!

Would you like a couple of quilt tops I have done to finish for Linus? That way we can both cross a couple of project off of our goals list.

Yeah, that's why last year and this year I shrank my list. Instead of all the UFOs it's just "what do I REALLY want to get done this year". Anything over and above that is gravy.

I am about halfway done basting that giant quilt. I took it to work and have it taped to the conference room table so I have to finish basting it this weekend since we'll need the table for work next week.

I actually have two tops made for Linus already that I need to quilt. I may take you up on your offer later in the year, though, after I've finished the ones I already have waiting to be quilted.

If you decide you want them later in the year, let me know.
