UFOs

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.

Riana, your rescue project is beautiful.  Great work.

Dee, I love the banner

Gail, I'm so sorry your lost your little Lillie. I hope the raffle brings in some big help to the foundation to help little girls.

Ginny, I understand, I am a very slow worker also. But I will miss you and hope you return after things are looking better for you. We have lost a few in the last couple years. Sue P, Rogue, Karen etc... But sometimes they pop their heads in. Hope to see you back next year if possible.

Dee, the banner is lovely.  I don't know how you manage to get it all done.  I'm so glad I am retired and don't have to do things to justify my value as an employee.  My last job after I retired the first time was at Joann's, no problem there.  That job was a result of a long standing joke in our family.  They said after I retired I needed to get a job at Joann's to support my habit, so I did and loved every minute of it.

Riana, I love your last rescue.  I love scrappy and I love yoyos.    I have finished he Sunbonnet Sue quilt to raffled off at an event to honor my Great Grandaughter Lillie who we lost a year ago.  We have started a foundation in her name to help little girls in need to be able to do things that they may not be able to afford otherwise.  Lillie was three years old and loved music and dancing school.  I have never worked on any thing that brought me such joy and also sadness at the same time.  It's going to be hard to part with it.

I now have five quilts to finish for my boys, Greats and Grands.  All these kids keep me busy.  Also working on two QOVs.

Hope everyone has a blessed day.

Dee, it turned out fabulous! It was hard to get an overall idea of what it was to look like with all the photos you were sending me while you were sewing. But every photo looked great! I love it!! A year and a half ago you were so concerned about making banners!!! LOL

Hi girls ~ checking in as I am so behind it seems. After I finished the QOV sew day, I had a Lent banner to get hung, and I made it ! <phew!>  Just barely .. Had a big meeting @ work with senior management of the agency, and now I have to complete a portfolio for review by my Dist. Mgr to evaluate my performance at work to justify a raise in salary ... I get annoyed with the very thought as I feel I can in no way put my day onto paper to make this a reality.

Here's my banner hanging at church ~ I have 40 days to think of the next one lol

Welcome Georgia! Look forward to seeing some of your work.

Ginny, I perfectly understand where you are coming from. We will miss you in Secret Santa group. You have till March 31 should you change your mind.

Riana, your rescue quilt is absolutely gorgeous!  Yes, the sewist had an artist's eye for color alright. I hope whoever receives this quilt will treasure it.

I have to introduce Georgia Stone who posted a couple of messages ago.  She and I have been quilting and square dancing buddies for maybe 40 years.  That was when fabric was cheap and the leftovers from making our dancing dresses made great quilts.  The best years were when she was cutting fabric at a Hancocks. We went to the dance festivals...and checked out all the local fabric stores.  We haven't quilted together in the last 16 years since Paul & I moved north.  I am terrible at regular E-Mail, so I invited her here as I'm sure she has a few "unfinished objects."

Here is one of my rescue projects . The center was pieced, but the border incomplete before being abandoned when sewist moved back north. I finished vine stem, cut & added leaves,quilted it ( baptist fan in center, echoes around vines) . A bag of yoyo " flowers was found, so l added those after quilting. Lap size. The sewist had an artists eye for color, l think :-))

Ginny, you're wise to limit the project list. I think that's why so many quilters have ufo's. They simply can't say " no, not this time", lol.
