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.

Barbara ~ I would love WI rows !  I need to do some regrouping in the state here to share Arkansas rows .. I am soooo bad, but whipped to the core with this moving project.  Now to work on some mathematical issues on the center to quarter sections ..

Beautiful Dee! I don't have any Amish patterns but I think I'd choose that one too.

Anyone need Wisconsin rows. I plan to go to Nancy's Notions soon and will pick them up.

Mary ~ I would love any California rows !!

Update on UFO lone star log cabin ~ I started this in 2005-ish. Made the center star while I was working at the quilt shop in VA but never finished the log cabins. It was for me, my favorite Amish pattern. So to be able to use this now as a fundraiser for the church I attend is a good use of time/energy and fabric.  So, now I have 2 quarter sections done and rows sewn, and I had loaded several of the boxes in front of my design wall so I could see what this looks like ... I like it!

There will be a green border on each section as it goes around the star, but I have to put another color between the star and the sections to increase the size .. may put two additional, like a blue first, then a yellow, then the green ... this is actually coming together rather quickly. Seems like my 'vacation' went entirely too fast  lol

Thanks Riana, Yes, It's my embroidery machine. I have fun with it. Trying to get just the right design for the person it is going to. It takes time to put it on like any other thing. I think this wreath took about two hours.  I have to adjust the tension according to batting or stabilizer and use a smaller stitch count when it goes through batting. You'll enjoy it, have some fun!!

Barbara, what a lovely pillow! Did you applique this using embroidery machine? That's something l need to learn to do on mine.

My new tablet won't charge, so had to suffer thru many updates to get old one going much reading to catch up on! 

Dee, l'm sure you'll have that place whipped into shape by this time next week.

Linda...l agree w/Elizabeth, quilt by machine & bind in black or darkest other color to " contain" those prints.

Mary, safe travels...have fun!

Thank you so much Linda, Dee, Elizabeth and Mary. I appreciate you all and the work you do also.

Comment by Mary Moore on July 6, 2017 at 9:26pm

Barbara I am in awe of all your work.

Elizabeth...what a happy puppy!

Dee, "Nalbinding" is a knitting like technique used in several cultures before they figured out how to work with a continuous thread.  Using a needle and about a yard of thread you sort of weave around your thumb and and hold with the rest of that hand. Using a loosely spun thread is supposed to allow you to keep adding lengths.  I need to get out some of my unspun fleece and make up something that is loose and not too well washed.  It is supposed to make a permanent mesh that felts well.  Watch a couple of the demos on U-tube.

Will be traveling for ten days starting tomorrow....stopping for lots of R by R rows if anyone needs a California one.
