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.

I have a question for you all. I bought a new sewing machine that I have yet to use, it is 2 yrs old. I wanted it very much. It threads differently and has some really neat features- I need to learn how to use it. My question is I have this antique dresser/ vanity I guess really. I was thinking of taking the mirror off and using it for a sewing table. What are your thoughts? I want to know really what you think.

Thank you Carla and Sue-Anne.  This morning I made sure my scrapbooks are up to date and worked on the backing for the Bees Quilt.  I have made over 800 quilts and smaller projects over the years and I have photos of almost all of them in scrapbooks.  Besides those books I have scrapbooks of all my family members.

Thank you, Barbara.

I am working on a throw size quilt about bees.  I received 4 fqs from a friend and I fussy cut squares from the focus fabric - different sizes and then squared them 2 or 3 times.  I'm sewing 30 12 1/2' blocks for the backing at the same time.  I can't work in order.

The coverlet was beautiful. 1718 WOW!!

Elizabeth,Your Grandson will enjoy such a beautiful and restful quilt. You did a wonderful job.

Most of my backings are all pieced 12 1/2" squares.  I press all the seams open.  I'm sure that a LAQ would not accept them, but I do my own machine quilting and I do not have a problem.
