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.

Just catchin' up on what ya'll are up to .. I have been cleaning, scrubbing, mopping, wiping, and am whooped down to my toes.  Closed Monday morning on the house, did a walk through before closing and I was just stunned.  What previously looked like a picture out of a house magazine, was in fact a filth magnet.  I do not believe this woman EVER wiped anything in the past 4 years in this house.  I called a cleaning company that works for local rental agencies for move in/out cleanings, he said that he could not clean the carpets they were too dirty. I actually called the local restoration company that does after disasters .. they are coming tomorrow am early and the carpets should be dry by early afternoon so we can actually start doing something other than cleaning.  YAY !

On another note, I am on the LAST strip of the log cabin blocks that I have been working on .. but tonight I cannot even stand to cut the last 9 strips I need for them .. how sad is that?!

Barbara ~ love the pillow..

Linda ~ the puppies came out great!

Anybody doing the row by row this year ?  Need some states !!

This is Cole on his quilt.  The photo is a little dark.  My daughter says that the dogs like the other's quilts.  She took my 2 grandchildren on a 14 km. hike up a mountain.  I have a picture of them up there.  There is quite a bit of snow yet.

Hi Linda,

I would machine quilt your doggie quilt.  The hand quilting won't show up as much on the prints.  And, since it will be bought by perhaps a non-quilter they would appreciate  sturdy machine quilting and washability (I just made up that word).  But who knows they might use it as a wall hanging.

I am still trying to find out if my granddogs like their quilts.  Maybe it is too hot for them to care.

Mary, I don't know how to knit.  The kids in your classes would show me up.  Ginny would fit in but, with me, the kids would say - who let in this old lady!

I am all ready to sandwich my QOV tomorrow.  I'm going to quilt it in a large meandering motif.

Elizabeth, I wish you could quilt the puppy quilt. I am stumped! Cannot decide if I want to machine or hand quilt. I have to have it done and to them by mid August. They want to display it at the annual picnic which is the kick-off of the auction. Most items are listed on-line, but this is the first time they have had a quilt like this. We already know there is going to be a bidding war from my post of a couple blocks.

Mary the background fabric (dogs and bones) is from Loralie. The puppy faces and that used on the backing are fat quarters from my stash. I tried to match the colors in the Loralie fabric. Now to find a fabric to bind it once I get it quilted! And what color to choose?!

Linda, what perfect companion fabrics you found for the puppies!

Ginny and Elizabeth, I would love to have you in the classes...we could do all sorts of silly knitting.

Good on you Elizabeth for being diligent with your dermatologist.

The library took this week off.  The tapestry folk still met today.  I actually got to sit with them and be in on all the gossip and jokes.  One of the faithful stitchers is trying to buy a woolen mill that makes batts and cleans and straightens wool for spinners.  I hope it works for him as I love to use wool batts.

Love your doggie quilt! Makes you want to hug that quilt, so adorable
Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on July 4, 2017 at 3:23pm

Linda, your quilt top is so cute!  And I love your pieced backing.  It will be fun to quilt it.

I completed my #11 block of the R&R civil war sampler.  I get excited every Monday when the new block comes.  My friends told me that I lead an exciting life.  I went to my annual follow-up with my dermatologist today.  She sprayed one  growth and did a biopsy of the growth between my nose and mouth which she said is probably a basal cell cancer and she did a biopsy of one on my back at my waist.  Now I have to see a plastic surgeon that she will arrange.  But there is a wait.

Here's the front and back of the puppies quilt. Now to sandwich and quilt as soon as I make up my mind how I'm going to quilt.
