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.

Catching up on all the lovely work in here ~ sorry I have been so absent. I haven't touched a thing since QOV Sew Day, needed my sleep, felt like I was just overly exhausted AND of course, now we have sprung forward. So, with that, I sold 10 1/4 yards to a friend @ church for a Winding Ways quilt,  another 28 yards (2 queen size made into a king size) is going to another friend, and I will have to report this  lol  I actually had a QOV work day on Saturday and we cleaned the scrap bin out tossing the bits and I had patterns available for those that came to take fabric to make. i got a little bit more done on my Home of the Free Because of the Brave (from Karen), but I need two more pieces of the red as it seems I shorted myself. So, tonight I am going to do ponchos for grands.

My sister sent me a quilt I had done for her at least 15-20 yrs ago, seems we now need to review seams of blocks for 'fray', AND a pair of curtains that she found to match that need hemming. Riana, I should have sent these to you -- she's in FL too lol  I am going to hem the curtains first so she can hang them. Then I will spread out her quilt and repair. Lord knows I will have a heck of a time finding the colors I used in that quilt back in the 80s ... 

Stitch on !! <and I will sneak back to work!>

Thank you Kathy and Linda,

Hubby doesn't care for the green, but the 2 1/2" squares were navy and green.  So, I used up all of my related greens in my stash.  I also used up all my medium and light blues.  My cleaning lady wrapped up a gift for me in the white with coral and blue triangles and it made it into the quilt too.  Haha!  Of course, I haven't raided that box of new CT precuts on my bottom shelf yet.

Kathy, I love orange too.  I thought I had overdone it in one of my recent quilts because none of my friends who helped me sandwich the quilt liked it.  Too bright for them.

I think that I have finally achieved what I set out to do many, many years ago.  My quilts are recognizable as being made by me, even though I do not necessarily buy the fabric.  Do any of you feel this way?

Love the colors, Elizabeth! Oh, the quilt too!!

Elizabeth, I love that quilt.  Those are my types of colors.  I am a neon green and orange lover.  The blue just sets it off.

Thank you, Barbara.  I won the scraps of navy and green  Hoffman fabric in a tea cup auction and cut them all in 2 1/2" or 3" squares.  I bought a fabric at QOV with blue, white, and green with the words "Nice To Be Home".  I used this fabric as a backing and the leftover scraps are in this quilt.  The other fabrics are little pieces from my stash.  You don't see the whole sentence together in the quilt, but I know it's there.  The next quilt with the same scraps is coming soon.

Elizabeth, "Nice to be Home" is a lovely piece of work.

Your French Braid is beautiful, Kris! 

Comment by Kris Howell on Friday

Thank you all for your kind words!  I've tried making a scrappy chaos quilt - different pattern - but even then I end up coordinating the fabrics, lol.  This pattern is from a book of French Braid quilts, and I liked the look of it.  There is one more pattern in that book that I'll make eventually.  

Gail, I bet your son loves his Patriots quilt!  My dh was complaining because today was 10 degrees cooler than the last several.  I told him to stop fussing, spring had barely arrived, lol. Plenty of time for hot weather. 

Comment by Gail Brown on Thursday

Kris your french braid is gorgeous.  I have one that just needs the border but it doesn't have the squares in the points.  I used patriotic scraps for the braids.  My Great Grandson is a Patriots fan so I'm using a wide border of Patriots fabric.  He will get it for Christmas. Wish I was at a campground watching the water and listening to birds and watching squirrels instead of watching rain come down.  FFirst day of Spring give me a break, my old bones are protesting this weather.
