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.

@Julie, Give it a week, and that space will fill up on its own!  @Beth, I'm right there with you!  I have even gone so far as to hang tags on drawers, but then I overlook them later.  @Deanna,  it's gorgeous!  What a great treasure to inspire healing.

Nothing makes an ill person feel better than a lovely quilt like yours.  Nice job.

Deanna, your friend's quilt is beautiful.  She is very fortunate to have you in her life.

I sent off my quilt for my friend that has been in cancer treatment to be quilted on Saturday -- she called me today it was DONE !  This friend has been in treatment for over 100+ days as she had to be monitored closely following all treatments. Now that she's coming home next weekend, I've got to put the binding on and the label !  Now .. to clean off the top of my table ..

I have been able to download pictures. I am on FB as Mary L Nash (gigi). If anyone is interested in seeing them.  I am working on putting a binding on one I just got back from my Mother who Hand quilted it for me. It was pretty before she got it, but what a change when they come back with quilting. They are certainly full of life. I just want to sit and look at it and touch it. I am going to get to touch it a lot though......I sewed the seam around the outside. The backing has so many wiggles in it. I will be ripping tomorrow and re doing that seam. I guess I'd better find some really good CDs and get my head phones on.

problem with cleaning up my sewing area is that I can't find anything then.  I put it away and forget where it went.  Oh, that is what causes UFOs.  LOL

Unfortunately, I did take Mary's lead and cleaned up the room where I store all my books, fabric, UFO's, etc.  It looks great, but now I have plenty of more space to fill up.. lol

I think I'll follow Mary's lead & straighten out my sewing room.  I finished sewing the quilt top for the Block Buffet mystery, so I expect it will become another UFO for me to finish here.  Rainbow Rotini is starting, so I'm on to my next project.  And, I signed up for a Lone Star Quilt class next week, so there's my next UFO.  After digging through my stash for these 2 quilts, I'll really have a mess on my hands.  I'm both awed & inspired by Beth's accomplishments!  I can't even imagine quilting 7 quilts in 1 weekend, even if some are small.  Congrats!

It was a productive weekend, I got seven quilts quilted, one customer, one full size, and five small wall hangings.  It was productive quilting, now to do the binding.  I am going to get the smaller wall hangings done, but leaving the larger ones for someone to do for me.  It will work, My carpel tunnel is acting up now anyway and holding to do bindings is hard enough.  I am working on a class table runner that is just giving me heck.  I am trying to downsize the pattern from a full size quilt to just a table runner and trying to get the fabric requirements is a bummer.  I never realized how hard that would be.  It is a Bits of Bargello pattern, love the pattern, but did not realize how difficult it was going to be.  Definitely not a beginner project and not sure can get done in three hours.  I do not want to send people home with an UFO.  Oh what to do?  Any suggestions?  I do not have a photo of it because I have not finished it totally.  If I was not teaching this class, I would put it into a UFO stash.  I may only make one of the 18" blocks which is doable, then put something on the ends to frame the sides.  Wish I had a photo for you all.  Maybe tomorrow I will.  Sewing 3/4" bargello strips is not easy.  Amazed I have done it before on a Heart Bargello.
