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.

Ooh Elizabeth..all you need is for the electricity to fail.  Glad it wasn't in the middle of the operation!  My son sells and engineers the type of generators that have a pendulum in constant motion so the machine starts almost immediately, and they monitor the line coming into the facility so that the generator knows the outage is coming.  Hospitals and casinos love it.  Surgery and slot machines need this kind of per-emptive power.

Riana, Where is your winter Florida home in relation to the storm?

Hubby had his pacemaker installed yesterday.  We went to the Heart Institute at noon and got home by 10:00 P.M.  At 2:00 just as they got him on the table in OR the hydro went off.  The elevators, the phones, and the equipment does not work so I did not know whether he would get the pacemaker or be sent home.  They went ahead at 4:30 but I did not find out until just before he came back to recovery.  They had to call to the Civic Hospital for an x-ray machine and all the work looked good!  We were happy to get home!  (All I got done is 1 little 6 inch butterfly hand button-holed. LOL)

Linda, Indy is just like my Hubby!  I told him that I am in control now and he balks at everything I tell him to do.  Haha!  I win mostly too!

The quilt is called "Time Squared" from The Quilt Pattern Magazine. Unfortunately, you have to be a member to get the pattern, we are forbidden to share it. But it's easy enough to figure it out. The centers are made from charm pack and the jelly roll borders the center. I used the leftovers from the jelly roll for the binding.

Indy has only been on his meds for 24 hours. Altho he's still sleeping most of the day, he had a couple times this evening where he actually wagged his tail! I haven't seen that in months. Most meds are put in his food...but one is given orally with a syringe. I don't have the energy to chase him all over the house. Besides my legs and ankles are so swollen that I can't get shoes on this week. Soooo I shut all doors, pushed all chairs under the tables, blocked off everything that I could...but forgot to put the sofa pillows somewhere. He buried himself in the pillows. He's a smart little stinker! I was waiting for him tho!!! Like a kid, sick like death warmed over, but strong like ironman when it comes to not wanting to take medicine. But like a typical mom, I won!!!!!

What a bright, cheery quilt, Linda! I love primary color combos! The puppy quilt is so cute! It is bound to make it's recipient smile!

Adorable puppy quilt, Riana! 

Prayers continuing for your son and you, Elizabeth! 

Glad to hear they finally have an idea on what is ailing Indie, Linda! Hope things will now start to improve. 

How proud you must be of your gr'son, Mary!

Mary, maybe make it a rule...4 sq. " of color can only be done after 4 sq. " of snow or sky.

Linda, that's lovely quilt...and l'm glad you are finally getting answers to what's going on w/ lndie.

Comment by Mary Moore on September 7, 2017 at 11:58am

Been wanting to ask about Indy..but nervous about answer.  Sort of good news.

Riana and Linda's quilts so happy looking.

Since I finished all the black outlining on the tapestry, I've been obsessed with putting in the color.   People are more willing to come help now that it is more fun.  I'm feeling a little like the Little Red Hen.  They will probably drop out when all that is left is snow and sky.

Very cute, Elizabeth!! And beautiful quilt to treasure for a shut-in, Linda. I hope Indy does well on his meds. 

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on September 7, 2017 at 10:04am

Linda,  Lovely quilt!  It makes you feel good to make a quilt for a deserving person.  But I am puzzling how you made the blocks from a jelly roll (I understand this part) and a charm pack (Did the centres come out of the charm pack)?  I think a good name for this pattern would be "You've got mail!"

Comment by Linda Koller on September 7, 2017 at 9:04am

Finished this quilt last night for one of our shut-ins from church. Made from 1 charm pack and 1 jelly roll.
