Hi Jan, That is a lot of quilts! You won't leave the house for six months if you try and get all those finished. I wish I could help you out. Ros

Just what I needed to see, Jan - someone with a bigger list than me! (And I'm not counting my "official" UFO list!) I could manage to quilt a soldier, if you like?

Looks like you have your work cut out for you!! Happy Quilting!

You make me feel a) good because my UFO pile is nearly empty and b) bad, because my UFO pile is nearly empty - I need more projects!

Hi Cookie [K]
Thank you for your vote of confidence, I will do my best to clear them before Christmas - that is 6 months. Watch this space!!!!!

Hi Fiona,
Oh bless you, that is really kind to offer but I never ever let anyone else do my quilts, I cant 'farm' them out so to speak. Mind you, I will remember you if it all gets a way too much, you just may be sorry. hahahaha lol

Hi Vivian,
I just have to have quilts around me, finished or not...Sad, but true....

Hey Lady H,
Nice to see you here again, glad I make you feel good not so glad about the bad bit though. But I do know what you mean. haha, this quilting lark is never ending. I really need to live until I am at least 1000.......ho ho ho
lol Jan x

You have a lot waiting but I probably have you beat...I keep ones I've already paired with backings hanging in the closet but I have two boxes of donated tops and a basket upstairs with my own tops too.
