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.

Such a pretty pattern and Love your quilt, Kris! I googled Square Dance and got over half a dozen patterns and none of them looked like yours. Pattern source, please!

You go, Indy!!! Enjoy your well deserved retirement.  Don't make things too hard on the new guy, will you? 

Elizabeth - that's a one block quilt, and the block is called Square Dance.  You can arrange the blocks in a lot of different ways. I'm thinking Baptist Fans for the quilting pattern.  Any other suggestions?  

Of course, I'll have to make some placemats with 4 Square Dance blocks each to practice Baptist Fans first *grin*

Indy is now enjoying retirement from being a service dog. Today is his first day of retirement. After seeing the neurologist and internist this week, it was determined that between the seizures, meds, and now a collapsed trachea, he will not be able to perform his duties any longer. He is now looking at a life of leisure and pampering.

I will be looking for another Havanese to introduce to our family to be trained as my service dog in the future. It's quite a process to find the right dog and trainer.

Kris, love the quilt too.

Ah, Liz, l wouldn't be able to leave that mistake there either... guess we both like things " right", even if others wouldn't notice, lol.

I deleted a few photos accidently, and found they still existed on another part of my tablet . So l refurbished them, saved in an album for " only me" on fb, and now don't need to keep them in the tablet's files. If you have not yet emptied the " trash bin", you can open that, select file and select " restore".

Kris, love that quilt! When we stayed in motorhome in Tx., l tried outdoors sewing...but since we were on Mustang Is. and just yards from the gulf, the wind kept shigting my patterns and fabric pieces. One day hubby laughed as l sat with a small rock or large shell on each thing on table!

Kris, I really like your red and white quilt.  What is the name of the pattern?  It looks like a quilt I might like to try.

I did decide to take the May row of my temperature quilt apart and fix it after all. 

My son phoned me from the trailer and told me not to delete a photo ever!  I have been deleting them since I got to use a computer in the 90s.  

Barbara, my sewing room has a/c but only when Hubby decides to turn it on.

Kris it must be nice to have an aircontioned sewing room this time of year.

Oh Elizabeth, the fun is just beginning!!!

Riana and Chris, you congratulated me too soon!  Haha!  I managed to screw up again!  It is funny how an ordinary old lady like me can get up to such mischief. 

And I hate to tell you the worse part, after telling you I was using an easy pattern for my temperature quilt, I see when I sewed May and June together that I made a MAJOR mistake in the middle of May.  The temperatures are accurate but the sewing is not.  I'm not taking it apart and redoing half a month at this stage!
