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.

Thank you, Riana.

I am going to meet my friends in the party room at 10:00 A.M.  They have been reminding me that they know it is my birthday.  We exchange little presents for birthdays.  I will work on buttonhole stitching a fused applique block (my 4th block)  Then, I have to leave early and have a quick lunch because my DIL is picking me up to paint ceramics this afternoon.  My friends all "poo-pooed" and said that it was for kids.  After that we are going for dinner with Doug, my son and my 2 grandchildren.  Happy day for me!

Love those " giant block" quilts, Dee!

Well, the jackhammers & drills are finally finished in our last stage of basement waterproofing, so l can unseal tape that l'd put around door of my sewing room, and uncover my equipment! I've been working on " dancing leaves", a ufo sent by a friend. It's a lovely pattern, and l'm so glad she sent along this challenging project. Still deciding on a border selection for it.

So, the message that went with my quilts, disappeared.  It was blue .. really !!  Elise is completely done, Riley is almost as I stitch down the binding and label is on, and I just made the purple binding tonight. Going to make pillowcase dresses for all three, and then skirts .. don't know if I will make it to the sundresses, but all will be going in the mail by next Monday. I leave August 1st for NC and will be gone for a bit .. will be hard to NOT sew, but I will have my hands full  lol 

Love the socks girls !!

Gail, l put them up on design wall or lay out on the floor, not all will play together nicely, so don't be afraid to take out the rebelious ones and set aside for a different quilt. If things don't work at first, throw in some " neutrals", take a photo ( so you know how they were laid out if you need to pick off floor, eg.), and give the project a rest for a day or 2. You'll be surprised what your mind comes up with when not " overthinking" it.

I haven't looked To See what you all are doing.  Love the socks, nice cozy warm feet in the Winter.  Can't wait to see the next ones.  

I keep looking at your orphan block quilt and my orphan blocks to see what I can come up with.  It's amazing what you can do do with blocks that seem to be the last thing you would ever think of putting together.  I love birds and bird houses and the garden look of it, just gorgeous.

I have been trying to get a plan organized, so this is the plan!  I am getting every block I have incorporated into a top ready to quilt.  Didn't know I had so many blocks and panels or how well some of that "what was I thinking" fabric goes with some of them.  I am a hand quilter, usually have a large one on the frame and throw sizes and smaller in a hoop in my lap.  For me that is the best plan I think.

All of you are a real inspiration to me.  Riana I will never turn them out like you and I have to accept that.  Kathy, having to keep your house in show condition and keep all you sewing in one place would be an enormous challange for me. Good Luck with that.

Wilma and Mary the socks are great.  I have tried knitting and i just doesn't work for me.  Crocheting and embroidery are my other side lines.

Hope you all have a great day.

Barbara, how is he quilting on your president's star quilt coming along?

Comment by Mary Moore on Sunday

Patterns eventually get to Ravelry I think.  I looked at previous years and realize this first one was really easy on us.

Comment by Riana Noyes on July 14, 2018 at 9:18pm

Good luck, Linda...keeping a house in " show" condition is always a challenge.

Mary, are the patterns on Ravelry?

Wilma, lol...l thought your socks were wearing jewellery. They sure are pretty.
