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.

@Beth - we'll be rootin' for ya !  I started my goal of finishing UFO's 2 yrs ago .. I've done quite a bit this year while throwing in 2 quilts for a new grandson, 2 quilts for HS graduations .. a couple guild things AND 3 or 4 off the shelf (the PIZLBs)  LOL  Today I'm still working on some Christmas elf projects to mail off this week -- the workshop will get cleaned up and back to the sister's quilt on the wall. So tell us .. what kind of quilts are they ?  Do you have the same taste you did when you started them ? And who are they for ?

And yes, she listed them and counted them herself.

Thank you for letting me join this group.  My quest for 2012 is to finish all 130 or so projects that I have started and not finished.  My daughter cleaned out my garage with me where my quilt room is, and we found that there is a problem with starting, cutting, and then leaving it to better things.  So, I finished one of them this last weekend and here is a photo.  It started with the red/white pinwheels and built from there.Diane%20quilt.jpg

 I have several UFO's.  I would not know where to begin.  Too many great patterns.

Eventally they will get done, some day.

Aaah! I found another U.F.O. while clearing out my cedar chest. This is a series of hand applique flowers (various) in a color no longer in any bedroom of mine. Luckily, the blue & whites mimic my china, so I guess a table runner would do with the blocks I already did.(This must be at least 9 yr. old, no wonder I forgot it.)

Mine is from a pattern in Better Homes& Gardens "New Patchwork & Quilting Book1987, and calls  both this with path and another without as Grandma's flower garden quilts( vintage @ 1930's), but refers to the one as "green path flower garden quilt" , probably for clarity .

Carolyn I believe you are right, it is still a flower garden.  This top was found at a garage sale and was in pretty bad shape to begin with.  Neither my customer or I no the history of this quilt.

Isn't that the "Flower Garden"...with a path, or without a path, if you put diamonds in between or not!!!!

Comment by Penelope on December 21, 2011 at 8:46am

@ Riana

Is there a name to your pattern with the diamonds.  My grandmother made me one in the 60's from my mother's dresses from the 30's.  A treasure to me. Thanks

Gorgeous quilting.Mine isn't as scrappy as I've used 1 color theme per octagon and a path of diamonds between. I wish I'd thought of changing it up like your customer did, it would be easier to "set". Thanks for the tip. I'll turn mine over when mine's ready to quilt, and work from an overall pattern from back ( rather than in ea. octagon as planned).It'll have to wait 'til spring, though as I still have a lot of partials to complete around the outside.Thankyou!
