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.

I'm so glad that your rehab sessions are going so well Liz.  Great idea for you rigging up a better way to do it at home.  I know what you mean about your book, I'm reading one now that started of introducing about ten characters in the first few pages.  All with crazy names, I have to keep looking back to see who is who.  Good idea making notes, I'll try that.

I love the gnomes Wilma.  I don't think that I am as proficient as you are with applique.  I have a hard time getting all that detail, not good with a lot of small pieces.  I'm a great admirer of detailed applique.  I'm better with hand embroidery but not so much with applique.

Riana, I can't wait to see how the impromtu quilt turns out, can't wait to see what you do with the circles.

Good idea, Liz, some books are a lot of brainwork to read and keep straight!

Made some changes in my impromtu/ ufo quilt today. I was unhappy with the amount of contrast...l'd lost the star shape. I also got a great idea for those  circles ( undone big yo yos). I'm in a golf tournament tommorrow, so can't continue until Monday.

Right on, Riana.  I do my machine quilting after my exercises and before I rest again and read a few chapters of my book.  I am reading a most complicated book with the story of 3 different characters and 2 different times about 2 hundred years apart  in each chapter, so I make a few sentence summary of each chapter so if I don't read for a few days I always can refresh the story lines for myself.  My memory isn't what it used to be.

After my rehab session with a physio exercise assistant going over my exercises I feel wiser and more confident.  I need to relax more so as not to defeat the purpose of the stretches.  It is also so much simpler to do exercises on the physio bench rather than on my bed, so I improvised this morning.  I left the quilt off my bed and put my long rectangular ironing board that fits over a regular ironing board on my bed crosswise (I have a King size bed) and put a pillow at the end for my head and I can easily get on my board and do my exercises.  Hubby and I can remove it when I am done and put it under the bed again crosswise to store it without interfering with the bed frame legs.  And I have been doing some machine quilting every day - not as much as before, but enough to satisfy me.

Thank you, Elizabeth.  Hope your sessions go well.  It is OK if it takes longer.  I have issues when I sit too long.

Great work, WIlly. I can hear the jingles and the HO HO HO!! !!

Elizabeth, we're still quilting faster than hand piecing & quilting, and you can look forward to sewing sessions as a reward after those physio workouts :-)

Wilma, wow !!! What a Fantastic quilt !! That took a lot of time. I do not know how any of you do such detailed work.

Wilma, your Gnomes Quilt is so excellent!  I just love it.

Today I started my physio + rehab (2 1/2 hours) sessions.  And I also started machine quilting my 9 Patch Variation Quilt.  I only work 1/2 hour at a time and have a little rest.  It will take me a little longer to finish it but that's O.K.
