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.

Dee, nice work's definitely considered a success when 5 quilts got finished!. I had to learn to use my left hand years ago when l had carpel tunnel surgery on my right wrist.

Mary, let's hope it was just an allergic reaction to something & figure out what it wss.

Elizabeth, wow! You are really steaming through those ufo's. A very cheery quilt to brighten someone's day.

Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes. Yes, Mary, it's time to stop counting. I hate to admit I'm getting up there.

Elizabeth, I love the fabrics in your quilt. You do such beautiful work.

Wow Deanna! Your group did a great job. Brownies would have been my downfall too. I made myself a batch earlier in the week...LOL! Had them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! ha ha

Mary will keep Paul in my too.

Linda, We don't have birthdays anymore.

Elizabeth, Lovely as always.

Deanna, How lucky your community is to have you as a take charge volunteer.  I would love, just once, to volunteer and be an Indian.

Paul has an MRI on Tuesday.  Last Wed. night he fell 6 times...with a big personality change.  He is back to "normal" now, but with no memory of the evening.  He is only 73, and has always been healthy as a horse, low cholesterol etc.  I am trying not to borrow trouble in advance...but can't help trying to figure out what might be coming.

Our QOV sew day was yesterday .. I am whupped !!  As director, I got the girls set up to tables and had organized prizes for drawings during the day. We had a potluck, lots of sugar for breakfast (I was a good girl), and a pretty healthy lunch for the most part. Brownies were my downfall :)  We had 24 of us sewing and stitching, I didn't bother taking my machine as I squared for all the tables for the blocks they were making. By 3pm I was hurtin .. called out to all so I could teach someone else to square ambidextrously, finally got someone to try .. and they were convinced. I square from both sides of a block, and move my ruler not the block from left to right. I admit learning how to use your non-dominant hand isn't easy, but it does save a few steps. Was doing lots of squaring on HST both large and small .. By the time I was doing large HST for a carpenter's star, I needed the assistance.  Here are a few of our quilts:

   We finished a couple more, but I guess I haven't saved them .. and ...
