MTS Meets Symposium

This just in...

The Mountains to Sea Trail quilt was accepted into the 2013 North Carolina Symposium Show!!!  I am VERY excited as I have never had an entry in that show.  Granted, this is a group quilt made of panels constructed by a number of quilters, but MY quilt is one of them.

When and where is the show???

Spring 2013 (Ravelry) UFO Club - The List

I haven't touched my sewing machine in the past three months and  I'm not sure if I'll get anything done during 

this session either, but here's my list - just in case.

My list for the Summer session morphed into my list for the Fall session, which morphed into my list for the Winter session, and has now transformed into my Spring 2013 list.  I didn't finish ANYTHING so there is plenty more to be done!

Follow the link to view the list:

(Ignore the Mill Quilt since I completed that one last year.)

I have 3 commission quilts that need to be done and 3 baby quilts that should have been done over Christmas break, but I waited too late to begin and then life got in the way (and stayed firmly planted there!)

Wish me luck and...
Happy Finishing!

Winter 2013 - (Ravelry) UFO Club - The Results

The Winter 2013 session of the UFO club is now CLOSED.  Progress was slow this session, but there’s always next time!  I'm not sure of any reasons, but my own.  We had a good group of quilters, but life seemed to get in the way for several of us.
My personal excuse for not adding to the group totals?
DS2 was in the hospital for a good bit of January, the entire month of February, and the first week of March!!!  That really put a crimp in my quilting time, as much of my time was spent at Duke University Medical Center in the Pediatric Bone Marrow unit.  When I wasn't at the hospital I was working at one of my TWO jobs or spending time with DS1 at home.
This session's group stats are listed below.
