If you're a REAL quilter, you have at least one UFO (unfinished object) and one WIP (work in progress) stashed in the closet or stacked on a shelf. Maybe you just need quilting suggestions, or maybe a fresh eye from a new online friend can help with block arrangements. How about a UFO swap? Any UFO conversation is welcome.

Hi Riana,

Looks like you are having fun!  I love how your quilt is "happening" on your design wall.  I had a productive week-end.  I pieced the 3 final borders for my Rest & Refreshing Quilt and I pressed the backing for a QOV that I would like to sandwich tomorrow morning.  Today I would like to press the QOV top and fluff up the batting and see how much I can sew on the R&R quilt.  It is going to have a pieced backing.  The rows are sewn - just need to press the seams and sew the rows.  Nice if I got it done this week.  Hard to tell - I jump from 1 project to the other, depending on where I am and what I am feeling like.

Gail, l have 23 pages of quilt pictures here on MQP...there are 146 different quilts. However, there are way more than 146 photos, as some quilts l took closeups of quilting, applique etc. ( especially my treasured wwwwrr). Plus photos of placemats, xmas bazaar items, table runners and sewing room. Besides these, l now keep a separate private album on my fb page of the quilts l topstitch for Water Oak Quilters...most of those are for Honor Flight or Arnold Palmer children's hosp. This yr. l added 36 quilts to that album. I like to keep track of the designs l've used in top stitching, so l don't repeat. Often the same pattern is used by several members.

Linda, congratulations on expected great grand child! I didn't think you were old & your family must start awfully young!

Here's what l'm working on now, an impromptu quilt using the strip pieced parts  plus broken pinwheel blocks from ufo basket as borders ( more of that added now) and l've made 2 applique blocks ( birdhouse & flowers) out of my " schnibbles & bits" bin, little interesting pieces & parts of orphan blocks chopped because l love the fabric ( well, really, l love ALL fabric,lol). The quilt's further along now, with more orphan parts added, but l have the 2 applique ones off board & on sewing table, stitching the parts down.

Congrats Linda on the great grand ! I am on the end of the three for my son and the girls .. thankfully. 

I am rearranging fabric and PIZLBs today, bringing home a bookcase from work as my case manager cleans out her office. A previous manager built it and it doesn't belong to the Agency but it's a great bookshelf so I am going to put it to use  lol  Putting all my books in it as I need more book space, and the UFOs in PIZLBs need to be seen more to get them in the que to be done. The que is needing to get the holiday projects lined in so that they all not only work on my UFO list, but the stash busting too :) 

Another storm is coming through so I have to get the trash out and to the street. Then another shelf into a bin so that I can ready myself for this shelf .. 

Welcome Anna to our group :)

Been there done that, Mary. Poured my heart out on a page carefully expressing every word and then lost it. LOL!! I can laugh now. ha!

Last night I dreamed Riana was selling me a house at a very good price. Wish it were true. The house just behind us is forsale, It has been entirely remodeled. New plumbing and electrical new walls in the basement. New furnace and central air. Beautiful kitchen, a second bathroom put on the first floor. I think that is what inspired my dream.ha! ha! Have know idea why Riana would be selling it. ha ha!!

Linda, congrats on the upcoming grandchild. And you look like a very young great grandmother. You'll be the best.

Gail, I'm usually behind with the up coming events. It seems to many things get in the way of getting things done. Would be very nice to have a drawer full of table toppers and pot holders etc...

Anna, you are way ahead of me on the Farm Girl Vintage, all I've done is get the book.  I have finished the baby quilt for Great Grandson.  

I am feeling better, almost normal, well normal for me.  I have been working on some embroidery, towels for Christmas gifts.  Also appliquing some place mats also for gifts, as well as making some pillow cases for Great Grands.  All small projects, but I feel that they are accomplishments.  Usually have a large drawer full of these kind of items by now.  Don't have the energy to start wrestling large quilt on to the frame yet.

Linda, congratulations on the upcoming Great Grand.  I know that baby will have a wonderful quilt waiting.  Baby quilts are so much fun.

Riana, you are absolutlly the Queen of UFOs.  Have you every kept track of all the quilts you have completed, both yours and other peoples?  It must be in the thousands  I know you have finished at least 100 in the time I've been following you which has been almost a year..
