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.

Linda,that pillow block may be a piece of a border section, looks like a bow/ribbon. If you mirror image it and add a small mid-section as a "knot"?  The lady may have been experimenting with a pattern & decided not to continue.

Well, Faye , maybe you can use those zigzags on a set of much planer blocks that need some zing. You're developping a real talent for art quilting, I see.

The pillow is the block I can't identify.

I feel your pain/frustration Beth I'm in the same place. I am working on Star of Bethlehem and it's going slowly, but the one that has me climbing the wall is Miss Lacie's Promise with Y seams I think I've ripped more out than sewn. I have to get this one done it's for my daughter as a graduation present and I just want to scream lol

I finally had to focus on one thing till I had it done. I finished one on Friday and got it  mailed on Saturday. One of the ladies in our church now has alzheimers.Her husband was cleaning out her sewing room last summer and found some quilt blocks she had made and wanted someone to make them into quilts. Here is one of them.... I've also made 3 blocks into pillows....I can't find photos of the othe 2 pillows. Might be in the AZ photos that aren't downloaded yet. The only block not identified is this one to the right. Anyone know what it is???

Nice tree Fay. 

How is everyone doing this month on your UFOs?  I am progressing, but just can't seem to finish one.  I worked on Shekenahs RR, Churn Dash, chinese lantern, 30s basket quilt and have gotten no where.  What is the deal?  I am getting frustrated.  I did put the applique quilt back on the longarm and told myself I can't quilt anything till it is done and that is final.  I am already arguing with myself and I just did that yesterday.  Oh the mind, what a fun thing to play with.

Faye I love your tree

Comment by Linda Koller on June 11, 2012 at 12:06pm

Faye, I really like it!! I'm designing a center square for my next round robin. It's for one of my brothers. I was thinking of a large tree like this and hanging their traced handprints from it. On each handprint would be names with birthdates for my brother, wife, children, grandchildren, etc.  Then around the base of the tree I would put a couple of his favorite hobby cars, the unique birdhouse he built, and other things unique to him. Thanks for posting your tree project...I love it!!!!
