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.

UFO finished! I started this quilt 2 years ago for a mom-to-be who knew she was having a boy but didn’t want a “themed” nursery.
She later changed her mind because so many of the gifts she was getting were Disney “Cars” items. I then made her the “Race Car Star” quilt that can be seen in my photo album.
I also have a girl version of this quilt that I will post as soon as it's finished.
Pattern info: Buggy Days by Terry Adams that was published in Fons & Porter's Baby Quilts 2008.

OOPS!! big time! lollol...sorry deanna..running back and forth waiting on coals..getting ready to roast sweet peppers i had just picked. i didn't take the time to zoom in and examine more closely..sorry. still love the border fabric. and, dunno, i love star quilts, they don't have to be covered in smaller stars or flowers...they radiate...they glow..what more does any quilt need than that. :))

Deanna I

 Florence, Wow; you sure do get a lot done! I love the berry it makes the black and white pop, Beautiful! I like your idea about aplique with black thread also.

 I love the story! LOL

Thanx Florence; it is quilted with lime green thread in a popcorn pattern. I wanted something that wouldn't detract from the bright star and keeping it simple -- I needed to extend the length a bit, hence the double row of strips at top and bottom. Right now, I think my head wants me to quit, so I just might hit the sheets and let the meds do some work tonight.

Will take another picture and post tomorrow :D

Deanna, your quilt looks great.  Just wish I could see it close up.  Good job.

Comment by Deanna Davis on September 29, 2012 at 7:55pm

Rogue, this quilt is already quilted .. adding more to what it is could be detrimental to the color scheme   LOL  or me !

i might dig around and see what else I've got in this stack of UFO's that almost to this point .. maybe ?

then fill it with some of your incredible quilting! or...something i have done a little of, and plan to do with a sampler quilt that i used as a teaching tool years ago, quilt w contrasting colored thread..looks like redwork but in any color you can put all your flowers and vines current "warm-up piece for handquilting is black on old rose pink. the sampler is same old rose pink...going to do roses and swirlyvinystuff in dark green on it.

i have seen skype used a lot on mewscasts, rt & cctv both sometimes use something that says "broadband" up in corner the way skype appears up in corner...must be a euro thing, i can find nothing about it searching, son says he isn't sure what they are doing. ask your son...ok? i also don't know the distance satellite etc for "facetime" and it is an apple thing...but there is no lag..none! so cool! not getting rid of my pc tho ...but, so cool to play w my little ones this way! :))

so glad the cold sounds like it is on the wane, good. i hate getting colds..i stay sick for months! boring! even more tha me :))!! lol

oh...i LIKE that print you used on the border a lot!

Rogue, my technie son is in Japan.. we 'skype' and he keeps me learning about all the 'stuff'  LOL 

Am still trying to expectorate today -- but the head is winning in the stuffy dept :(  I am stitching a binding on a star quilt with a wild border ..

Am thinking this will be the one to show @ the local quilt exhibit and then as my entry to Lancaster ? It's the only thing I have even close to done .. thots ?

When I went to Paducah 3 yrs ago, I noticed that every lonestar I saw was all filled in with applique everywhere -- I feel mine is so plain looking now ..
