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.

Our temperatures have dropped to 20s at night and 30s during the day, but still nothing wet.  S. Calif. is back in drought mode, we're coming close.

Have a dear friend who used to have an organic infant-wear company. Both the children and the ware organic.  Now she is struggling to sew straight seams on her machine.  She wanted me to cut out a quilt for her, and of course I agreed.  She always swears she will never make a quilt again, and doesn't have rotary cutter, mat, etc.  She brought over a batch of 7 to 10 inch irregular longish strips of  yellow, and  pretty turquoise prints, and asked if there was enough there to make a top.  Higher math, and hit my stash.  She will be piecing the two prints into 6" X69" strips-4 blue, and 5 yellow to be the center of an Amish Bars.  I had a perfect brown mustard, but not enough for the first 4 1/2" boarder-so she has to go shopping for that.  Then I did have enough of a yellow check with turquoise buttons in the white squares that will make the larger outside border, with the inner blue for the corner stones.  It will be twin sized, and she feels like it is mostly her fabric and simple enough. She comes to the library twice a week to work on the tapestry, so she can ask lots of questions.

Those are cute Dee just saw them on facebook. All of the Texas gulf rain is jumping us and going to you. Last week it made it all the way to Michigan. You guys actually get more of it than we do. We get some but nothing like what ya'll get from it. Guess it has more time to build.

We had such storms last night I didn't get to quilt Cooper .. so I worked on some gnomes instead .. they are calling to me ... 

Comment by Deanna Davis on Wednesday

I have one ready for quilting !! <happy dance>  I needed to have a clear table top (and my work table isn't it at the moment), so I brought Cooper to work with me .. he got spray basted at lunch ... is that akin to lamb basted ?  hahaha  Binding is cut and my thought is to take a dinner plate and make nice big gentle curves through this one ... Beth ?  Something easy for my machine and my small throat  lol

I just ironed scraps for 2 hours this morning.  My scraps haven't been fondled for ages so I paid them a bit of attention. LOL

I didn't get as much done on my day off as I had hoped, but the rose bush is now trimmed and it was being strangled by a raspberry.  We have rain scheduled for today and the next 4 days straight so I should be able to dig that root out.

Got the back of Cooper #2 framed with a red strip of 3 1/2" all around, so now I can sandwich it and do some modern quilting on it .. binding is already cut too :-)  I am on a roll  hahaha

<and back to work>

Thank you, Mary.  Your Mom had the doctors all figured out!

I managed to piece the backing and iron it.  The batting is next.  I may be able to piece one more batting before opening a new package.

Elizabeth, you have a great attitude about this surgery.  My Mom taught me to always try and make doctors laugh-as they have so much grimness in their lives.  I think some of them thought she should be committed.

Hi Linda,

Beautiful table runner.  Embroidery is lovely!  I've finished 4 UFOs this year.  Next one is a sampler quilt 58x58.  I'm working on piecing a backing.

Hi Deanna,

I think that I've finally figured out Cooper's quilt!  Unless you surprise me in the finish.  We have figure skating in common too.  I love to watch but it is hard considering our bedtime is 10:15 P.M.
