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.

Mary love the name tag. The Irish chain is  beautiful and I can see the hexies. Nice filler over the white. I like Riana's idea for the quilting.

Mary, that is one of the cutest name tags I've ever seen! Adorable! Your tapestry is gorgeous! So much detail.

Cute tag, Mary, lol.  lf you plan to machine quilt, l think parallel vertical gently waving lines would work well over all those seams with walking foot. By hand, you may need to just echo around those shapes...not much stitching shows on busy quilts. I was wondering how the tapestries were coming...that one has a surreal look to all the detail!

Had to make myself a name tag for the quilt guild I just joined. I think it is important and make a good and serious impression.

I was given the 12" block and sashing for this quilt.  It had so much white space,

plus I wanted to make it more my own project.  So now it looks like this.  And I did too iron it.  I don't know if you can see the variety of hexagon patterns I appliqued into the white spaces.  It is definitely busier.  Now how the heck do I quilt it???

Time to show some progress on the Night Time Tapestry scene. Wool embroidery on linen, 6' X 36". I may never finish the black outlining.

Love the fabrics and colors and styles Kris. Will look forward to seeing the progression. 

I'm doing the Rest and Refreshing also.

Comment by Beth A. North yesterday

Wow Kris, those are pretty and very detailed.  Progress is always good, especially in sew alongs.  They are going to be very pretty and great treasures when done.

Love the squares Dee. 

Glad you are on your way home Riana.  Those storms were scary.  Our area did not get the snow, thank goodness, but we had the lightening and hail where I live and that was enough.

Comment by Mary Moore yesterday

Kris,  You are doing such a beautiful job on all those projects.  Looked them up and decided I behind 3 tops that need quilting, working on a patch of the day, and maybe even finishing a summer will resist any new starts.

Riana, Thanks for reminding me of RV stores as a source for mouse solutions.  Thinking of calling there to see what a new roof installation would cost versus Paul doing it himself. 

Hoping to get on Paul's computer so I can post a finished top!

Comment by Mary Moore yesterday

Kris, your versions of everything are so beautifully I have to go look at the sites they came from.

Riana, Thank you for the RV store as a source for mouse stuff.  Thinking of locking one of the cats in the trailer for awhile.

If I can get on Paul's computer, I will post my latest silly.

Comment by Kris Howell yesterday

Ginny, happy to be of service, lol!

Riana, glad you made it home.

Yes, the colors on the Sangria quilt are fabulous.  I must work on the Ohio Star quilt first, but will certainly take time to assemble and attach the borders on the Sangria.  I'll post a pic of it then, but I won't be quilting it for awhile yet.  

Thanks for all your kind words, and have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
