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.

Anna, you are way ahead of me on the Farm Girl Vintage, all I've done is get the book.  I have finished the baby quilt for Great Grandson.  

I am feeling better, almost normal, well normal for me.  I have been working on some embroidery, towels for Christmas gifts.  Also appliquing some place mats also for gifts, as well as making some pillow cases for Great Grands.  All small projects, but I feel that they are accomplishments.  Usually have a large drawer full of these kind of items by now.  Don't have the energy to start wrestling large quilt on to the frame yet.

Linda, congratulations on the upcoming Great Grand.  I know that baby will have a wonderful quilt waiting.  Baby quilts are so much fun.

Riana, you are absolutlly the Queen of UFOs.  Have you every kept track of all the quilts you have completed, both yours and other peoples?  It must be in the thousands  I know you have finished at least 100 in the time I've been following you which has been almost a year..

Weather was in the 90's then it rained and cooled down to the 60's PTL!! We went to Cuba City for Collin and Calvins 67th birthday's had a real nice time with them. Got home today about 7PM unpacked and had some supper. 

Thank you Gail for your interest and prayers for my brother Dave. He is doing well. Thanks to all the prayers.

Anna, I have a mental block to free motion so have a number of UFO's ready and waiting for me to get the courage to tackle them. I have to do them because some of them are commitments to friends. YIKES!!

I feel good.  Today I finished piecing 2 baby quilts (very simple) and 3 quilts of Valor.  I am sending a note to the sewing room longarm coordinator to make an appointment to quilt these.  I also have 2 panel baby quilts and another one in the stack to be quilted.  Yeah, progress.  I also attached the binding onto grandson #5 t-shirt quilt...but it is too hot to hand sew it.  Maybe another day.

Riana...I have a bucket of orphans. A friend of mine does those and she calls them "this and that" quilts. They are always the fun ones.

Comment by Anna Quilts yesterday

Barbara and Riana, thank you for the warm welcome and input on UFOs. Riana, you could write a book with all the input and ideas. So true! I have a scary amount of UFOs and really want to get the number down. It is anticlimactic to work on something by yourself. right now some of my pressing UFOs are finishing my Lori Holt, Farm Girl Vintage and Bee Happy quilts, finish quilting a 10 ft x 10 ft Patriotic quilt that I love but is just BIG. Then there are several more piles of UFOs that need to be quilted or atleast the top needs to be completed. I do not even want to look at it. LOL

Comment by Riana Noyes yesterday

Welcome, Anna! So you have a few ufo's? People stop working on a project for various reasons.. colours of decor have changed, ran out of one or more fabrics, ran into a snag( technique) , have fallen " out of love" with a pattern, and missing a deadline to finish & it's no longer needed or appropriate. I like to see quilts finished and used...if not by intended user, then someone who would benefit from a gift of it. Sometimes l cut down the size ( that helps with the " ran out of perfect fabric" problem. Or l substitute a similar colour/ pattern. If l run into real problems, it goes into an orphan block basket. I delve into that for impromtu quilts ( love making those!) Sometimes, if it's a total loss, l recut for another quilt, or use it as part of a pieced backing. Elizabeth Phillips is the queen of pieced the idea from her!

Hi Girls,

Been down with p-namonia for the last almost two weeks.  Down, but not out!!  Dr. says he's not saying I'm old, but I have a lot of miles on me.  Just need a good rest and a tune-up.  Getting better little by little.  I don't think I'll catch up to Riana any time soon.  It will take me years to finish my own UFOs.

Barbara so glad that things are going well for your brother.  Hope things continue to move along for him.

Linda, so sorry to hear about your blood pressure problems.  I spent many years with the same problem and many meds before I got ones that worked for me.  As you know stress is a big contribution to hyper tension.  "Pray, Hope and Don't Worry" Padre Pio  God has a place He wants you and Indy to be and He will get you there.

I'm still trying to finish baby quilt for my Great Grandson who is expected to make his appearance at the end of the month.  It's almost ready to go.  I'm getting Hubby to help me get a queen quilt on the frame and I have several smaller projects I can work on.

Deanna, I love that your machine has a name, Charlotte.  Mine is called Fuzzy, because of the fuzz problems he causes me from time to time.  Charlotte is such a regal name, Fuzzy not so much.

Happy Sewing Girls.
