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.

Great job, Zoe!

Have to bind 2 quilts and I'll have 2 UFOs done! Photos later this week...I hope. If I have the energy.

Beth, another quilt will be on it's way to you later this week. Finished the backing yesterday.

Zoe, Great job. I've done the same  I've recently had a problem with sashing stips meeting. Found out that one small sq out of the block was 1/8 each off and had to take that square out and put one in the right size. FRUSTRATION!!!! Your nephews girlfriend will love it.

Zoe, don't you just hate it when you feel like you're done...then notice a mistake. Glad you found it BEFORE quilting it,lol. Both are perfect quilts for them.

Oh, the one with the strawberries, I realized the strawberries were upside down, I fixed that. It was 2 am when I first put that border on.

This is the one I made for my nephew, I had posted this one before.

I got my nephews girl friends quilt done. They both are vegetarians and my nephew had requested a quilt.  I had plenty of fabric left to make this one. I only added the bee's, lady bugs and strawberries to her's.

Thank you, Gail.  I am so inspired by your comments.  I'd like to live with a good quality of life to enjoy "old age"  too.  The UFOs don't even need to be finished just as long as I can play with them for another 25 years. (I'm only aiming for 100.)

I have 3 therapy sessions next week and I'm doing my daily exercises diligently.

I t hink I've gotten a little behind in my reading. I do hope those of  you who are suffering with back problems will find some relief.  I know a little about what that is like and it's no fun. Kris your blocks are beautiful.

Elizabeth, i understand your health problems and how painful the therapy can be.  I've had both knees replaced as well as my right hip over the last fifteen years.  I need my left hip replaced but am kind of putting it off. At 80 years old I worry about more surgery.  Besides I have a lot of "stuff" to get done.  I do plan on living until at least 110 so I can use up all my fabric and finish all the UFOs as well as all those patterns I'm going to do "some day".  I hope your therapy continues to go well and that it helps.

I got my instructions for a temperature quilt from:

It is not like Mary's at all.  This looks easy to do.  If you decide to make one I'll send you my temperature range with the corresponding colour of fabric.  I tailored mine to Ottawa temperatures.
