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.

Love the Bee quilt.  I found some machine embroidered blocks on e-bay that have bee hives, just bees and one that has bees on a flower.  My Grand Daughter who lives in Virginia bought a 40 acre old farm last year and she wants to have some hives.  I have five of those blocks and some bee fabric.  I am going to make her a wall hanging.

Linda I know what you mean about finding things. I have some kid's quilts that were meant for my Grandchildren but will go to their children. Already gave a few of them to Project Linus and thanked them for donating their quilts.

Kathy, your trip sounds so exciting, I hope you are able to find your friends fabric there.  Maybe if as soon as you get there you could have it shipped to you there from France.  Wouldn't be so expensive.

Elizabeth...another special quilt! Love it!

Kathy, I think we'd be here till the end of the century if we all started going into all our UFOs!!!! I found sooooo many while I was packing up my house that I'd forgotten about. I started putting them in a separate box, then another, and another.....I'd forgotten who they were for!

Riana,  Good to know.  I am so excited, only a couple more weeks to go.  I have a friend in France who does quilt fabric design for Gutermann.  I haven't been able to find her fabric here, so I am hoping to find it while I am in Spain.  It costs too much for the shipping to order it from France.  Her line with them is called Vero's World Country Cottage Chic.  I don't think 10 days is going to be enough time for me to see

Wow, Kathy...a shop hop in Spain!? When you go you will LOVE their cottons in bright saturated colours. I carried a line of bedding ( Kouchini) when l had my drapery shop...all their cotton was sent to Spain for the vibrant dyes & printing they're famous for.l used to order wide yardage from them...wish l could do that now, but they're wholesale only.

Your bee quilt definitely has a modern graphic look to it , Elizabeth...and l love that you gave it a nice tight all over quilting for doesn't detract from the quilt's clean crisp looks.

Kathy, you are definitely "not alone" with these UFOs.  My sewing/quilting club here in Sun City had has bring in our "oldest" UFOs.  Well I brought a grandmother's garden that I started in the 80's.  Still not done.  Then I brought in a Sun Bonnet Sue Century quilt (women depicted from 1900 to 2000).  Have 2 blocks to finish the applique then I can finish the quilt.  IT HAS TO BE DONE BY NOVEMBER.  They made it a challenge.  So it is next on my list. 

But then, I got started on the RxR items I collected on our cruise through Alaska.  Now mind you, I only did the ones in a quilt where there was NO sewing, just laser cut applique.  Five of them are done.  BUT I have about 10 more that need to be sewn and I can make a quilt.

See how we get distracted and why we create those UFOs....I also found 2 more in the garage when I cleaned it out.  Think these are from the 90s also.  ;-(

That "Queen Bee" quilt is pretty cute.  Nice job on using all the bee fabrics.
