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.

Ok, after reading some of your posts, have decided to get back down to some sewing I have cut out, wish me luck...or something, it is such a nice day, but the neighborhood dogs all chase me, and I don't enjoy that, so will just live my life inside, wish they were all tied up!!!! Darn it.

Wow Deanna, must be nice to do some planting, ground to cold here but getting anxious to get out there and play in some dirt.  I have to dig up my carrots that are out there from last year, yes, you can keep them in the ground for the winter, just be sure to cover them up good with straw.  They are so good.  You did good on getting things done this last weekend.

@Beth - I ended up helping a girl in one of my classes cut her fabrics. Her fabrics of choice she came up short, so we fudged and I think it will come out ok. I had gotten some gardening done, tomatoes, cucs, sunflowers and peppers are in with marigolds, raspberry and blueberry planted, transplanting another raspberry I found in my yard if I can make it root .. and working on other beds before we get another rounds of storms.  I'm tired .. hubby was home this weekend so lots of 'work' to get done while he is home for 2 days. I am recovering some things in the camper he will call home for a while, so he took the 'headboard' off the wall and I'm recovering it -- now I get to wash the walls .. I think I'll sew some after I take a short nap LOL

So ladies we have been quiet, any finishes?  I should be posting no later than next week.  I am currently trying to finish that huge undertaking of a split diamond star in the western theme.  Got all the pieces cut and arranged now to sew them together.  Had to wait for ruler to get in so finished quilting a baby quilt, an oak leaf panel quilt, and four more customer quilts.  Whew, could sure use another day for weekend.  Maybe I should ask for a day off from work so I can be at home enjoying quilting.

@Mary -- congrats on such a productive time !  Now I've got to get to work !  We had such a rain storm yesterday, thankfully no tornado watches -- but don't plug in the computerized machine. Today is so nice I've got to get some gardening work done -- the ground will move :>  When it gets dark I'll get back to the machine .. have a great day all

Hi everyone!  I had a great weekend with a group of freinds for a quilt weekend. I did get my lap size "Through Thick and Thin" top done minus the border and helped the others with theirs.  We had a very productive weekend.  Among my things to do today is getting my FQ in the mail.

Well, we are back from a wonderful week at the lake. WE HAVE WATER IN THE LAKE. we are thrilled.It rained most of the time we were there. I loved every minute of it. I was a good girl.I was able to catch up on some projects. Crossroads is now 2 twin tops ready for the borders. I need to sew 3 more rows(already sewn into rows) onto Twirling Triangles and borders and that will be a queen size. I sewed 2 pillow cases together to go with my string quilt I just got back from my Mother. I am almost finished with Back Yard Majesty and another wall hanging for our living room. 2 table cloths, 1 is to practice FMQ on I am going to need a lot more practice......not as easy as people make it seem. I also discovered that I am 1/2 way finished with "Old Glory". WHEEEEE I am tired just typing that all out. Now I can work on my 2 BOM blocks I am behind on. AND wouldn't you know it.......all 4 dogs and Dh need haircuts. Well so much for catching up.......

Quilt it and then make into a duvet cover that might work.  Then you have the looks and use of both.
