Are the UFO piles getting smaller yet?

Click on an image for a closer view.

Susan has been in finishing mode, getting stuck into her UFOs ... the combination of an intense print and solids works well for these stars and chain.
Susan started with the border stripe print and  than selected the fabrics for the nine patch blocks to complement it for a gorgeous strippy design. 
Elizabeth took some of the recently donated fabric for children's quilts, added some additional fabrics from the community stash and her own stash, and a good dash of imagination, to produce these very cute little Scotty dogs. 
Louise has been on a very productive quilting retreat.  She finished her reversible quilt-as-you-go design (started in a tutorial with Lyn earlier this year) ... 
... and here is the reverse. 
Louise's second  project from the retreat - kindled by the gift of a beautiful water lily print from Robyn L.
The third project from Louise's retreat - a set of friendship blocks - Louse provided the yellow fabric and made one block. Keeping the fabric sets together leads your eye calmly around the quilt, while it retains movement and interest.
You must be very pleased (and possibly exhausted) by how much you got done on retreat, Louise !

The 70s Circles quilt - a set of roughly colour-grouped blocks made by several people at our Serendipity Circles / community quilts workshop in September - put together, and quilted by Jill. Good free motion quilting practice, on a not-too-scarily big quilt.
