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.

You must have raised her right Elizabeth.  I adore our local volunteer firefighters.  Nothing makes me happier than when one of them wins the quilt I donate most years to raise money for some of their gear.

My daughter in Clearwater, British Columbia sent me an article from the Clearwater Times about 20 Upper Clearwater residents who formed their own volunteer wildfire suppression crew in the summer.  One of their members is a government certified trainer with many years of firefighting experience who put on a S-100 basic firefighter course for the volunteers.  Suzalie is the only woman in the group.  They are holding a fund raiser on Oct. 22 in the Black Horse Saloon to buy more equipment, although nearly every resident has already acquired firefighting equipment to protect their homes..  I am so proud of Suzalie.  She is so capable.

Thanx ladies ~ I am so hoping we do well on this one. I am sending messages to friends all over the country (is this soliciting?), other women @ church are selling tix for 3 hours at the local grocery store, we have an event this weekend for 4 hrs where tix will be available and we draw for a rifle and 2 gas cards. We will draw for quilt on 11/22.  Next weekend I am sitting at another church fundraiser and will have QOV info/ forms / donation jar and church quilt at one table and will work on something for the day.  I am just thankful to have a finish as I don't think I have a big once since the log cabin planning and Master LA Beth doing that one for me.  I also need to do an inventory of these PIZLB's and see just what is in my room .. I am thinking I am wayyyy down but Christmas is coming so I have to work a little faster !  lol

My pinterest pic is USMC as my son has been a Marine since HS, and he just retired in January .. how wierd is it to say that ? 

<back to work .. still>

Your church quilt is stunning Deanna! I'm sure it will be a hit! Pinterest for me a very dangerous spot! Too many thing to look at, hence too much time wasted that could have been used to quilt something LOL

Thank you, Gals! I sure enjoyed the Paint Nite evening! This picture we all did was called Cherry Blossoms.

Dee, your quilt is gorgeous...and the quilting on it is very complementary. Tickets for this one should sell easily.

Hi Deanna,

The church quilt is so incredibly beautiful!  Colours are so vibrant.  Blue quilts are the most beloved by non-quilters so it should be a great fund raiser.

Elizabeth, If you put Linda Koller's name or Riana Noyes name or my name in the search you can see our boards and what we've collected for ideas. Linda has a pic of Indy so you will know she's the right Koller and Riana has a kitten and it says Ontario Canada or Deanna Davis. Mine has a purple and teal quilt in the pic.There is so much to learn and put into use. Tutorials, directions on putting blocks together, free patterns and so much more. I have a board on comfy homes and music. Polish pottery, Barn Quilts etc etc......... It inspires!!

Dee your quilt is spectacular. The quilting added was perfect for the quilt.

Dee, love the photo with Elvis that was posted on FB! So glad you got help finishing the binding...and what a way to advertise your ticket sales!!! Perfect!

I too use Pinterest. I have so many boards I can't remember them all...quilting, Havanese, recipes, Christian, books, movies, music, sewing room, tea & hot chocolate (pots & cups), and the list goes on....

Elizabeth ~ the Caravan quilt is awesome.  Love the animals...

The paintings are awesome .. yours too Ginny .. I need to do one of those, but I would love to be able to really draw .. 

I use Pinterest too, have boards for recipes and cooking, fitness, sewing, quilts, and church banners.  Must now do a new banner for church for harvest season before Advent gets here end of November .. I have a plan, but I don't know if I can pull that one off .. 

The church quilt is finished .. just need a label now, and I should have had that done before finishing the binding. But I sat at a festival on Saturday with 3 other ladies for QOV and we all took a corner and started stitching. It was done by the time we were done with the award ceremony.  And then ELVIS came !!

<and again, back to work>
