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.

Thanx all ...doing QOV for me started when my son joined USMC. Growing up, we had bracelets for vets, I can't remember where mine ended up, then POWs.  They all deserve a quilt.  Now that my son is retired at the age of 33, I kinda feel like it is something that keeps my brain working.

Barbara, I will try and take a few pix for you on my ambidextrous work.  This was something my quilt shop owner taught us so that blocks didn't move, or give us the opportunity for a miscut.  This week I am working on BABY quilts this week :)  LARGE block baby quilts .. in fact, #1 is almost ready for baby name (Cooper) and I started cutting for girl #1.  I am liking this big block theory LOTS!!  If I get the big blocks ones out of the way, I will get back to those log cabins .. makes them seems like soooo many pieces after these  lol  I found the most adorable pink / gray / yellow / elephant flannel back for the new grand girl that is coming in May .. but then I also forgot, Doug's daughter is due like anyday now so will have to do 3 girls after I get the boy one done!  Will post a pic after I get the name on the side :) 

<almost time to go home -- yippee !!>

Your QOV quilts are beautiful.  We have a Vets Nursing Home here locally in Panama City.  Every bed in that facility has a quilt made by our guild and it is a never ending project.  The quilts belong to each individual resident and their family.

We also have a wonderful Wounded Warrior program here that was started by the parents of a young man who lost his legs in combat.  Many local merchants, hotels, restaurants, charter boats and even spa days for the wives or significant other donate all their time and services.  These are semi annual events usually lasting five or six nights.  These families are honored with a parade, streets lined with flags, a beautiful sight to see so many of our residents care about these young men and women.  Of course there are quilts involved in these activities.

Quilts touch the heart of so many people in need of some comfort, love and appreciation.  Can't think of a better reason to go on quilting.

Prayers for Paul, Mary! Hope things are improving. 

Wonderful QOV's, Dee! You are such a powerhouse to keep such a large group organized and going! Kudos to you! From the sounds of things, you worked off at least 3 brownies, so no worries! :c))

Your Hopscotch quilt is so pretty, Elizabeth! Love the colors! What is A&C?

Mary, prayers for Paul. Trusting all will be well for him. We all need strength beyond ourselves.

Thank you everyone.  I am going to iron the top of my QOV today.  Your QOV are just wonderful, Deanna, and you organized a very successful sewing day.

The woman I met at the QOV cutting day is coming over tomorrow for A&C with my group at the condo.  She is going to bring her QOV cutting homework.

It snowed like crazy on Sunday here.  We definitely did not go out.  Doug baked a flattened chicken for dinner.  It was very good.

Mary, I hope your Hubby, Paul, is feeling better.  I'm his age and it's scary we're almost getting old. LOL

Happy Birthday, Linda.

Elizabeth your quilt is wonderful. 

Dee, love the QOV work you're doing. I'd love to be involved with you. I'll have to learn your trick for squaring up. That will take some practise.

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. 

Comment by Riana Noyes on February 4, 2018 at 8:00pm

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.

Comment by Linda Koller on February 4, 2018 at 6:59pm

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.

Comment by Mary Moore on February 4, 2018 at 6:25pm

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.
