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.

Wow, Beth you must have a large storage area from what I can gather from your UFO completions. What tips can you offer me as I have limited space in sewing area (but extra room elsewhere in house)? I found big plastic bins to cause problems with wrinkling etc.

I have been enjoying everyone's posts.  I have finished up handwork on a few projects while recovering from knee replacement.  Will post pictures soon.  I have missed being able to work at the sewing machine.  I will find out in about 3 weeks when my hip replacement will be scheduled.  Still have a lot of down time to work on handwork.  I have signed up to go to a retreat in Arkansas in November.  Would like to go to Houston also, but not sure I'll be up to it this year.  Do any of you go the the Paducah, Dallas or Houston Quilt Shows?

Here is another finish!  Started approximately 5 years ago.  Just love to cut fabric.  Finally put together. Did clamshells on it.  Pretty good for a first try at clam shells.  This is number 6 for the month.  Four more to go.

Ahhhhh, here is a finished quilt finally.  I have one on the longarm right now doing a clam shell, one needing a border to finish top, two 30s almost finished blocks and a baby quilt waiting to be quilted.  Oh am I going to make my 10?

Thank you!! I wish I was that The pattern is called Jigsaw by Alyssa Clancy of Lehmann Hall Designs.  To confess, I created this quilt top 5 years ago as a graduation present. Thanks to this wonderful site, I've found a dear friend who is generously helping me complete my UFOs!!!

Hi everyone, I'm halfway through my carry tote bag at least I've got the outside and pockets done now just the lining and should be done soon. I will post pictures of them when done. I'm also back working on two quilts that I walked away from a few months back. Promised hubby I won't take anymore classes until I get some of these UFO's caught up. Just need to stay out of my LQS and I'm not tempted to sign up for other things lol

Beth, I feel so inadequate after viewing your photos and your comments.  You are amazing.  I think so much faster than I can do so my "gonna do" list is much larger than my "got it done" list.  Working on the Rainbow Rotini mystery quilt (good excuse for instructions haven't come yet); working on a wallhanging for winter (having trouble understanding the directions) and working on a quilted purse (just got all the hardware....must work on it later today). 

All you quilters give me so much inspiration.  Thanks for all your information.

You should try the Kanashi flower maker.  It is actually really easy.  I was surprised at how fast I was making the petals.  If I make another one, I will be sure to mark my circles so I an quilt the seeds more evenly.  Also will be sure to tack down the flowers a bit flatter so not so bulky on seams.  Learn as you go right?  I still am surprised at what I came up with.  I am sure my partner will like it.  It even lays flat!
