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.

Hi Ginny,

I trace the animals on Golden Threads tracing paper and pin it on the quilt when I am machine quilting and quilt them.  Removing the paper is a little fiddely. I have 2 Laura Lee Fritz books with continuous machine quilting pictures but I get them from "images" on the computer too.  And the animals don't have to be perfect, just recognizable.

Your caravan quilt is so creative, Elizabeth! Are the animals hand or machine quilted into it or embroidered and then quilted? It really adds a wonderful pop to the quilt! 

Paint Nite is a kick! I went to one a couple of months ago. I will post mine if you post yours! :c))

Hi Riana,

Funny you should mention the fabric with the travel trailers, I am very attracted to that fabric and to the kits that are pre-fused and cut out and let you make those trailers quickly.  But I am not buying right now.  It could be worse - I could be attracted to young men, wine, cannabis, and extreme sports - I'm just crazy about fabric and quilting. LOL

3 more animals!  I've figured out that I like making this kind of a quilt.  I use up a lot of thread though.  Thank you to everyone who liked my quilt.
