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.

Barbara, the pillow is beautiful!  Does it accompany the quilt behind it? 

I sandwiched a QOV this morning.  The person who pieced this top had trouble in 2 corners.  I pinned them down as best I could.  I will quilt it and then straighten the border. I wasn't given any extra fabric to fix the top.

 I have a friend who took a quilt with corners like these to a long-arm quilter and she would not accept the quilt.

Linda ~ the carpets should be dry by early afternoon today, so will be taking things out of this house and start transferring things today.  Am going thru my cookbook rack now, dissecting and getting rid of things .. making a pantry area in the new house off the garage for things that will not go IN the kitchen .. and going thru the kitchen as I actually have 2 less drawers in the new kitchen and less cupboards as well .. this ought to be interesting ..

The quilt for the church fundraiser is the one I am working on.  The last strip is now cut for the log cabins and I can start putting the 4 sections today, the lone star center is already complete. That is why I chose this one.  Going for my stash bushters count!  And the handstitching on Cooper so I can mail it off this week .. his 8 month birthday is this month so I want to get it out the door :)

Back to sorting !

Elizabeth, love seeing doggies and their quilts.

Dee you must be exhausted and you're trying to sew!!!??? So when are you actually moving in? Sorry it turned out so filthy, but you will be happy once all the cleaning is done.

Barbara, I love, love the pillow!!!

Thank you Barbara .. this has been a long time coming ...

Mary .. tell me .. what is .. that word you used .. pre-knitting ???  Maybe we should have a skype class for this knitting round the table ..

Trying to do some handwork on the Cooper, but I hurt too much to hold the needle. And the neighbors are still shooting off fireworks and my female beagle is having panic attacks .. hard to believe she was hunting dog .. can bring me anything but loud noises, and she's puddy ..

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 !!

Just finished!!

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?!
