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, the person to receive your lap quilt will surely be cheered to have such a gift. It is beautiful and colorful.

Thank you Riana, Ginny, Linda and Elizabeth. Working at the free motion on runners is a little easier then a large quilt. I've been reading up on the grid work and took a few Iquilt classes for grid work. It helps. 

Zoe Nancy's Notions at one time collected old machines for a group for adults and children to learn to sew. I think I may do the same. I have some machines yet from the girls club we had.

Reading these threads, if you wanted to you can pass on things to the Extension service as they can use these things to teach kids how to sew- and if you have time you can help them if they set a class up. I did offer a sewing machine, but no one called. Before I give it to charity as I do not want it to get damaged, maybe I can call a school.  Just thinking out loud.

Beautiful runner, Barbara! Love the colors!

Riana, amazing how you put together the beautiful lap quilt.  It can be a table topper too.  Today I have been working on the pieced backing for my Sampler quilt.  I sewed and pressed during the U.S. National Figure Skating Championships.  Loved watching Aylisa Lui yesterday and Nathan Chen today.

Mary and Elizabeth, I thinned out before moving...but why oh why do I still have sooo much?

Riana, very beautiful and colorful lap quilt!

Comment by Riana Noyes on January 26, 2019 at 5:32pm

Oh Mary, you will bless another crafter by " letting go" of things you know you won't use! I was the happy recipient of low cost quilting books & magazines frlm thrift shop...they taught me everything about quilting before the internet! No quilters in my family...grandma sewed clothing, mom nevef touched her machine except to repair rips in dad's work clothes.

Barbara your table runners are so proffesional looking!

Comment by Riana Noyes on January 26, 2019 at 5:25pm

The center and corners were in the ufo box at our quilting group. When l dug deeper, l also found the 4 concentric squares ( though l took appart & changed some colors.) I added in strips from my stash. It's now quilted and awaiting a senior's home patient for a lap quilt.

Barbara, another beautiful table runner!  I particularly like the aqua colours.  And Ginny, thank you.  I watched the Quilts of Ken Burns.  No wonder he likes quilts.  They are as creative as making films.
