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.

With or without rickrack and button?  If with, another color? And what color quilting thread in the black and white area?  I told you this was going to be tacky.

Just so you kissed him on his lip balm.

Riana, I l smiled when I read about all the work you did to repair that quilt.  Sometimes it seems like it is worth it, when it looks great after your efforts.  I have one more to do before April when we hand in the quilts we have been working on.

Today is Hubby and my wedding anniversary.  We married on a snowy Valentine's Day.  Hubby baked me a red velvet cake with a chocolate icing.  I bought him a Blistex Pure Moisture lip balm.  No comments, please, on which was the better gift! LOL

We have some Romanian friends who had 6 daughters, now they have 7. They stayed with us for a few months. During that time I made my first quilt and sewed animals all over it and put the words around it " All things bright and beautiful all creatures great and small All things wise and wonderful the Lord God made them all" I think that is how it goes??? That was the tackiest quilt ever. It took the prize!! When I was getting rid of it Carmen my Romanian friend took it. Some years later we visited them in Chicago and there was my tacky quilt on their wall in the living room. lol!! I'm glad somebody liked it. lol!!  I tried putting a quilt together that someone else made once and I think I made a royal mess out of that one also. I couldn't get anything to meet up together. I take my hat off to Riana and Elizabeth who fix bad quilts and anyone else to undertakes to repair and fix and recreate and rescue.

I'm doing some " quilt rescue" work this week. One was a beginner's quilt turned in for our charity...but the binding was sewn at the fold and poorly handsewn at raw edges and she didn't realize her stitch length for quilting was way too short, causing pileups at seams & bunching beneath. It too a long time to undo it, but her top was worth saving. The other was an abandoned quilt top with scrap center and a muslin border that applique was started on. I finished the applique and quilted it...now it needs the 3D yoyo flowers attached plus binding.

One of the names for our snow is Sierra Cement.  It is knee high in places, and now we get a day of rain, then the snow comes back on top.  Really hard on the skiers, of whom I have never been.  I love living in a non-sking area now, as I used to have to deal with their alcoholic ways on the roads. Will get pictures of the tackiest quilt I have every made...buttons and rickrack and who know what next.

In Ohio our quilt groups donated all our scraps to Goodwill for recycling. But since moving to Arizona I was wondering what to do with my scraps. What a marvelous idea! Thank you!!
