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.

Doug and I picked out our house together!   We will "buy" no. 37, the orange house with the gray roof.  It has twin fireplaces - Doug needs to keep warm!

OK, I'd like #41 the rose cottage...2 acts of random kindness. Wonderful idea, Riana!

OK, I will play. I would like house #47, please. This is a large house, right? Requires 2 acts of random kindness?

Riana, if donating masks counts, I'd like that little gray one in the middle of the third row down.  The house I grew up in was gray with green shutters.  This one has a green roof so that will work, the yellow door looks so welcoming so that works as well.

49 houses for the back of Tiny Town are done and joined! Ready for some fun?? I'm brokering these houses for sale! I've numbered them ( next post) but have a close look here to see them all. Price for small is " one act of random kindness", and price for large is " two acts of random kindness". This can be anything like paying for a stranger in line behind you's coffee, giving a donation of time or product ( food bank), just use your imagination. No need to tell us what you did ( unless you want to), we are on the honour system. So chose your house!Stand by for fun things we will do :-))

Melanie, your idea to go to " plan B" if plan "A" isn't working sounds logical...quilting is supposed to be fun. To build your hand quilting skills, l suggest a pillow top...that's how l learned. It's not overwhelming, and you get to enjoy the fruits of your labor quickly :-))

Well, I have officially given up hand quilting for the time being.  Working on my purple quilt with home machine.  I spent 3 hours this morning and have outlined all the blocks with stitch in the ditch.  I've started an echo for the borders and will then try something inside the blocks.  There are only 16 triangle blocks, so it should not be too bad.  Had to stop for a while, my shoulders are achy from smashing that quilt around.  

Comment by Ginny Andersen on August 1, 2020 at 12:58pm I am wondering what you are up to, Riana! 

Comment by Riana Noyes on July 31, 2020 at 6:00pm

Yes Ginny...49 houses, 24 large ( for those with big families or lots of sewing supplies < grin>, )and 25 smaller " cottages" for those who hate housework and have a small stash,lol. After it's assembled, l'm planning a special surprise're all invited to participate!
