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.

OK, here's my UFO (for Christmas) I should've quilted when I made the top. The binding just needs to be finished , so almost there!

Penelope it is not my design I am using the tutorial in the link I attached earlier. The picture was captured when I looked at I Spy images through Google. I think the picture is from the tutorial. 

Linda I found fabric that showed a pictorial United States, so I have cut 6 inch blocks of areas that have special meaning to us ie California, New York etc.

I had never heard of quilting from the back until recently. I think that is a great way to go, I also learned about using tissue paper with whatever design on it, that way it would be easier to tear off after the quilting. I will have to try it.

Fab Idea for the back Linda- esp. since you can't see the quilting!

Now my mind is stirring- and @ Nancy Gardner- that one is gorgeous! Is that your pic?

I just thought of another thing ..... for the labels, I drew around their hands and wrote the information on the hand.  On Benjamin's quilt with the crayon border, I quilted it from the back (it had a solid red backing), with his name, the alphabet,  and Houston, Texas.

Nancy, I like your I Spy design also.  Very nice.

Comment by Linda A. Stone on November 30, 2011 at 2:04pm

That quilt is about 6-7 years old by now.  The border is a crossword of quilting words, such as applique, patchwork, scissors, scraps, etc.  Then I made a crossword puzzle with the letters ..... Granny, Gwendolyn, Houston, Gemini, I Spy,  Ladybug, etc.  I believe the squares are 2 1/2" finished.  It really helps to have a friend or two to share fabrics with because you need a lot to make all the squares different.  They were lots of fun and yes, the "grands" love them.
