UFO Flimsy Finish

Do you remember these tumbler blocks? No? I'm not surprised! I cut them out way back in September and never got around to stitching them together. I even posted a photo of them all on my design wall HERE. If I remember correctly I took them down to put another project up and promptly forgot about the tumbler quilt. Are you starting to understand how my UFO's are born? It's obvious that I am too easily distracted by the glow of new projects! Anyway, I spent Saturday sewing with some friends and finished the whole top. I was surprised at how fast it went together. It is an easy pattern, but I suspect that it went together so quickly because I was in such good company. Maybe I need to plan more Saturday sew dates with my quilty friends, so they can help keep me focused on finishing these UFO's!

I like it. My friend and I had what I call sew/gabfest last Thursday at my house. The next day she emailed me that we should definately do it more often because we do get so much done-which seems amazing the amount of gabbing we do too!

That is so nice that you have sewing buddies. It is an easy way to get things done. I like the top.

I really like your UFO Top...;-)
Yes it is fun to sew with friends.
I have not had that pleasure in a good while.
Maybe soon I can get one of them to drive out to the boonies to gab, stitch and eat of course.
Have to bribe them to come ya know.
Hope weather will let up here some no snow, ice or rain!
Now I look forward to your next UFO finish!!

Congrats on your flimsy finish! It is so much fun to be with friends and do the things you love.

I sure understand the UFO thing, though I think most non-quilters just don't get it. I am working on FMQ a quilt top that has been waiting for 3 or 4 years!

I can't believe there is another quilter like me. I call myself a topper, have lots of tops unfinished.
My goal this year is to finish at least 5 UFOs.

"The glow of new projects" . . . that makes it feel much better . . . now I know what to call that!
