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.

Wonderful quilt Deanna.  I agree with Linda and Rebecca, should bring in lots of money for the library.  What a wonderful dedication.

Deanna, a wonderful quilt! If that doesn't make money, I don't know what will. I'm a Civil War history buff and if I had the money right now I would buy it before you had a chance to raffle, auction, or whatever. Is my unidentified block on there? I do see a lot of blocks that I do recognize. Wonderful. Good luck with your fundraiser.

Deanna that is lovely.  Should bring in lots of money for your library.

Remember the Civil War Love Letters quilt I mentioned that distracted me before my trip to VA ? Well the group of ladies finished it while I was gone and it was quilted too ! Someone made a label and it is getting it's binding now. It will be given to our local library as a fundraiser. I  made 13 blocks, another made over 50 .. and others made 2, 3, or 4 .. back to my baby quilt !

Great job Riana.  That was an undertaking for you.


I did finish a simple little thing, a rice bag that was cut, sewed, and the rice with it.  I just had to pour the rice in the bag and sew it up.  I did put some of my lavender in with the rice in the bag.  Smells good when heated up and relaxing.  Lavender is a good herb to help with aches and pains.  So, yeah, a finish #1 for June, only 9 more to go.  I did manage to get a top assembled last night at quilt group and now just to put borders on so can get quilted this weekend.  Applique quilt is on longarm again so hopefully I can get that finished on quilting so I can move forward with others.  Oh the joy of knowing you are so close to the halfway mark of your yearly goal.  Yeah!!!!!  The system works if applied.

Linda your quilt is really pretty and will be such a joy to the family.  I don't know what that block is either but will check my book of 100 quilt blocks to see if it there.

You are all such an inspiration.

Thanks, Riana. I will try that. I thought perhaps it was a variation of a whirligig but couldn't find anything close. Then came across an Amish pattern called Spinning "L". It kinda looks like the "L" put together but it's only 2 not 4. She did a lot of variations I found. I will check out your idea tho. It's been interesting trying to figure out what she was doing. Thanks for your idea.

I finished the 5 pr. of blackout drapes for grandsons' room plus the baby quilt for new grandchild.Now I can concentrate on quilting the Project Linus  tops I finished in Texas:)

Linda,that pillow block may be a piece of a border section, looks like a bow/ribbon. If you mirror image it and add a small mid-section as a "knot"?  The lady may have been experimenting with a pattern & decided not to continue.

Well, Faye , maybe you can use those zigzags on a set of much planer blocks that need some zing. You're developping a real talent for art quilting, I see.
