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.

Friend in our group here had 9 tulip blocks in her ufo pile. She let me take them off her hands...l added a modern coin block between, using 8 . The last, a different tone of leaves altogether will be center of pieced back ( see, Elizabeth, still following your lead,lol). It's on the frame now .Will post when complete.

Sherri .. besides being bright and cheery, I also am drawn to the quilting on it.  I like the radiating lines from the top and bottom.  I am doing things like that myself .. however, right now I wish I had a LA to just finish these off in my visionistic method instead of having to do it on my domestic .. lol 

Made a bit more progress on Cooper last night .. I can almost get to the last large 1/2 of the block section .. then it is random lines in between the lettering ... I can see a FINISH coming  :)  

<and back to work .. again .. after only working 2 days last week, 5 is HUGE !>

Can't take credit for coming up with the uneven borders. I got the idea from a "Quilting Arts"  show.  ON Create TV. I love that network. It is PBS, and has lots of cooking and crafting shows.   So that is where I first saw the uneven borders used on a quilt. And since I had not originally put borders on this piece. Luckily when I finished the quilting I had a large enough overhang to add them to the top and bottom.  Thanks for all your nice comments.

This is a very happy little quilt, Sherri! I like it! So bright and colorful and fun quilting!

Your fire sounds almost like you had a ground fire going on, where the roots will burn for days after the top appears out. I have seen these here, too. Scary! Hope your foot improves soon. 

You and Willie, huh, Riana? "On the Road Again..." It doesn't seem like you've been in FL that long. When do you leave for Canada?

I love those tiny houses too. But alas! I'm claustrophobic!

I love those tiny houses too, Mary, but I don't believe I'd ever be able to survive in one. LOL!! Sorry about your pour little foot.

Sherri, I like your bravery with uneven borders.  It feels like a book cover.

Ginny, I thought the ashes of a burn pile were cooled off after three days of no new fuel. Stepped in the very edge, and they flowed through the top of my shoe. A week later the same pile quickly melted 2 feet of snow..sort of like a crop circle. We had 21 trees cut that were between winter sun and our solar panels. The slash took 5 days to burn.  After we have the tree trunks milled on site, Paul is talking about building some real outbuildings (no more Rubbermaid) and possibly an oak floor in the living room. I am looking at Tiny Houses...giggle.

Sherri,  would love to see your Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt, when it comes home from the long armer. I don't think I have ever seen a accqu quilt finished. Nice work.

Comment by Barbara Hughes on March 12, 2018 at 3:12pm

Elizabeth, your quilt is lovely. Nice work.

Spring is coming soon. We had a mild winter, the sun is shining. Hopefully we have seen the last of the snow for this year.

Please take care and get well soon to all who are suffering these colds and flu  and burns etc....

Elizabeth and Sherri - beautiful quilts!

Wow, Riana, is it really almost time to return to Canada already? I hope they are done with snow by the time you get there. Ontario seems to have gotten quite a bit this year...according to FB friends.

I finally feel almost human today. Good thing as today is cooking day for Indy's food for the week. Tomorrow is quilt group meeting and women's mission league meeting. So I'll be gone all day. My poor Indy will be all alone as he isn't welcome at quilt group or church.
