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.

The Sewing Machine Doc said it was the controller, which is something to do with the pedal, I think. Because of it's issue, it also had to have servicing because it messes up the timing. Both of my machines are considered vintage, but my newer machine at least does zig-zag. Less than 24 hours and it is home again. I am happy and can finish up my WOTB #2. Working on the outer borders.

Riana, very cute duck quilt.

Elizabeth, your granddogs will love new meaning tk thd expression " lucky dogs!" 

Mary, what a good use for thosemuliti- colored mid- range fabrics we all seem to have too much of. 

 Ginny, it' s likely the foot easy fix. Mine wouldn' t stop even after my foot wax completely off the pedal...replaced it & got old one fixed as backup...all is well.

This is Teddy cooling off under the rhubarb patch.  The other 2 dogs are big and do not play much with Teddy.  The 3 of them keep the bears away.

Sorry, Ginny, to hear your baby is in the hospital. Hope she is better soon!!

Elizabeth love your doggy blankets. I love Clifford too!!

Thank you Ginny and Linda.

Linda, I was organizing my quilt patterns that I have downloaded and I came across your dog pattern.  I am partial to Clifford too.  When Hubby and I babysat our grandchildren Clifford was on T.V. every day and I loved that cartoon.

It is awful to have machine problems.  My sewing machine gives me problems when I am setting it up to do free motion machine quilting.  But I won't replace it until something major happens.

Elizabeth, there are 3 dogs that are going to be very happy! Very nice quilts. I kinda like Clifford, the big red dog!

Ginny, I'm sorry your machine is having problems. I trust you have backups?

You girls have been busy!

Love the quilts for the fur babies, Elizabeth. I THINK I understand that these are for dogs, right? Very cute! 

Love your quilt, Mary! Very interesting pattern and it was perfect for all those multi-colored florals! 

I have now joined the club of "Machines with Problems" and mine is currently at the hospital. When I press the pedal, it either doesn't go at all or it races! I am not good with this stuff and am afraid one of the races will end up through my finger, so off it went.

This is for Lucy - a more feminine quilt.  It is backed with black fleece.  I forgot to mention that Teddy's quilt is backed with bright flannel.

I machine quilted all 3 quilts but not very much.  Just enough to keep the batting in place when they are washed.
