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.

Deanna, congratulations on baby Kendyl.  I like her name - sounds sweet!

Mary, thinking about you and Paul.  Doctors can do so much now.  I hope that they figure out how to help him soon.

I drove outside of Ottawa today to Notre Dame des Champs to the community centre there to quilt with members of a guild I used to belong to.  I had a nice time but it snowed all afternoon and was still snowing when I drove home.  They meet there the second Saturday of every month.  I just pay $12. for the day.

Congrats on the baby Kendyl, Dee! 

Hang in there, Mary, and get some help if you can, to take a break now and then. Don't wear yourself out. It won't help anyone. Prayers continuing for all of you.

Mary, prayers for you and Paul and the doctors that are treating him.

Well, another baby is here ~ a girl, Kendyl Taylor .. so #4 quilt moves up to #2 and #2 moves down to #3 .. and son's wee one will be here in May so I have time !  phew !! 

Today is raining and gloomy, got my swim in early @ 7am so have been attacking boxes of papers and records and things to trash and burn .. feels good.  Waiting for a message for color preference / theme of new grand's room .. hoping for elephants, ponies .. went to look at flannel last night, came home with a batting to cut up for at least two of them :) 

Going to go see My Girl this afternoon just to get out of the house .. plants are getting watered with gentle rain and I am sure it feels good.  Will post pic of Cooper on side of quilt .. have to blow it up BIGGER first and recut it  lol

Miss having time to chat here as usual.  Up to our ears in doctor appointments.  Neurologist next, as the MRI showed multiple very small strokes for Paul.  His moods and energy levels, as well a sleep patterns are all over the place.  I do realize that each day with him is a blessing, but I'm getting worn out with constantly readjusting plans. It has only been a week and a half!

Thankyou, the sewist who pieced it made it so precise, it was a real pleasure to quilt. That was only my second attempt at using curved ruler ( for the border), and it came out MUCH better than my first on an isolette. Getting the hang of ruler work ,but still prefer the freemotion.

Beautiful QOV, Riana! 

Ohhh...A&C - arts and crafts - duh! Got it! 

Comment by Linda Koller on February 8, 2018 at 2:34pm

Riana, the quilting in your QOV quilt is spectacular!

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on February 8, 2018 at 1:21pm

Oh Riana, you machine quilted the QOV so splendidly!  I just sandwiched a QOV this morning and I will start quilting it, maybe, this afternoon.

Ginny, I named our group who meet Tues. and Thurs. mornings an Arts & Crafts group because members can do anything they want.  This morning I quilted and 2 of my friends coloured,  4 others just chatted.  I didn't want to call it a social group because then people come expecting coffee and munchies.  We supply whatever we want for ourselves.

That's gorgeous Riana.
