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.

Deanna- it's gorgeous. The colors are so vibrant. I love it. I don't know what a PIZLB is though. Guess I should go find that list someone posted and print it to keep in my notebook by my iPad for reference :) Would love go see the back when you finish it.

Deanne I love your quilt and the colors. You have been a busy lady. I like your idea of putting the ingredients together and letting someone else do the baking, plus it keeps the fingers out of the dough - a good thing for me.

I like your song Jeanne - so many projects, so little time.

Deanna, It's absolutely gorgeous!  Of course, I am partial to blues & purples myself, so I'm right there with your sister.  I really like your choices of colors to match the border & create the secondary design.  I'm inspired, so someday I'll get "a round tuit."  Love the recipe card & ingredients idea, too!  Congrats!

Here's the quilt with the borders, and it is huge. The border was chosen by my sister as she 'loved' it to death, cheerful, etc ... so I picked all the colors for the center from it. I will staystitch the edges today and fold it up while I complete the back yardage -- I need NINE yards so it's a good use of the leftovers I have from the top. Whatever's left will enter my stash  LOL  I've got 100+ hrs into this .. but now I can pull a PIZLBs off the shelf for another relative :> And I made tablerunners last January for all my sisters for this Christmas, just have to put decorative stitching on the edges. And instead of baking a batch of cookies, am seriously thinking of doing recipe cards and jars of ingredients. Will really cut down on MY stress so I can do more sewing !  LOL

Those are so colorful, and I really like the pattern!  I'm right with you on putting this away until 2012.  In the meantime, I'll see what I can come up with, too, & check out the Novelty Quilts.  Thanks, Nancy.

I created a few blocks in the I Spy quilt. It is going to be sooo cute. I found a white on white with puppies and kitties. I also found a black that has colorful confetti sprinkled on it. I put it all away as I have too many gift projects to complete before Christmas. The I Spy and a Venice Rose will be my UFO project for the beginning of the year.  

I saw that there is a group here that has done exchanges for I Spy Quilts. There hasn't been a post since October, but it is called Novelty Quilts.  I must say, I was absolutely surprised at how quickly I was able to gather plenty of 6 inch squares. I have a resource if you are interested in buying them for .25 a block. I also had someone in Georgia interested in trading block. I just received hers today. Plus, of course I gathered from my stash and went shopping when there were discount days.  We will have to see how many are interested in exchanging block, and work toward that in the new year. 

Here are the three blocks I made from the pattern, now put away til 2012.

Count me in on any I Spy block exchange.  I googled it so I have an idea how it would work.  Maybe after the holidays?  I'm sure enjoying the ones posted here.

@Ginny, your Christmas quilt is lovely.  I think you have 19 more days til Christmas!  (Ooohh, that's not good news for my hubby's quilt!)

@Deanna, Congrats!  Looking forward to seeing pictures when raindrops stop falling on your head.  :-)  (My dogs are the opposite - they cross their knees & hope for sun.)

Nancy, Thank you for the link to the I Spy quilt.  My daughter has made many for her grandchildren, but I have never seen one and don't know what pattern she uses.  I have been on Melissa's site before, but have never seen the quilt tutorial before.  Now have it printed out to add to my "in the future" pattern pile!

Ginny,  How beautiful.  I love the look of simplicity of the Christmas Trees.  It is very nice.  Congrats on getting one more UFO completed.
