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.

This is the quilt top from the fall virtual retreat at The Quilt Pattern Magazine. I just have to add borders. Then save money to have it quilted. I have batting and backing. It's for my niece in Wisconsin.

Mary I think your temperature quilt is going to look like a jewel or a lot of jewels by the time it's done.

Rogue, I'm sewing, I'm sewing!! See next comment.

Look like a science project, something to put in the science fair, Mary. With the explanation on the side of what each color stands for. Very Cool!! I'm sure it would win first place.

sigh! yes riana, 'tis the time of year to play in piles of papaers and make messes w the shredder. but this year i am better organized and have my completerd rows hanging in closet downstairs, ready at hand to work on when time allows. drafting stuff put away to make room on din table for tax mess, but i can easily dig out the drafting ivp've completed & notes for nesxt idea.

mary's taking on such a lovely jewel like appearence. if the red triangle is 70 (& congrats we finally broke the 60 mark for an hour yesterday lol) what are the red hexigons? ..and the red half hexis?

Mary, l love the true clear tones in your tempersture quilt. 

Rogue, didn't the same thing happen last yr. when you were finishing a project? Taxes are SO taxing,lol.

Comment by Mary Moore on March 15, 2017 at 1:25pm

Colors not quite true...purple is 60 degrees, and the lone red triangle is 70.  The two whites are 20 degrees.The next round will include triangles, jewels and the first diamonds.  I think it is getting more interesting, quilting patterns could help alot.

Being down for a month has left a lot of loose ends to clean up...hope to work on 365 binding this afternoon.

riana i set my heater to 60 @ night. 65 during day. it was 30 this morning and now it's up to a balmy 46 ..'fraid you wouldn't like my temps.

Wouldn't that be cool if MQP did a feature on the 365 quilts? Hint, hint admin!!

My area didn't get as much snow as predicted but the snowbelt east of us did. But the temps plummeted. Indy is refusing to go little fellow. He's using his potting pads thankfully. We've gone back to bed twice to stay under the warm blankets and quilt this morning!! And I just might one of my headaches.

Cold front's hit here too( Lady Lake, Fla.) with a freeze warning. Heat was off so awoke to 62° house...but 42 outside, so the new windows are paying off.As soon as my fingers warm up, l'll be quilting on my rocket quilt :-)

Mary, please hurry up & bind your 365 so we can see a photo! l hope MQP does a " triple feature" on you 365 quilters' finishes.

The snow is coming down. This evening we're getting the heavy lake effect snow. I've shoveled my ramp about 4 times today and shoveled the front walk once. Indy was having fun today playing in the snow, but this evening not so much. The temp has taken a dive. He curled up on his bed with my fleece blanket and won't leave it.
