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.

Welcome to the UFO group, Dr. David. Please post pics of your work. It's really fun to see everyones creations. You will get a lot of encouragement and lots of excellent input from all the ladies.

My problem is that I seem to add more UFOs then finnish so the number keeps growing.

David, you're in the right place. When l retired 11 yr. ago, l had a hopechest packed FULL of unfinished needlepoint, knitting anf many quilt projects.  lt took about 4 yr. to get through them all. Some things are just not going to get used for what you started them off as. Best to utilize those for something else, just so they'll get used. Some of my " quilt" blocks ended up becoming tablerunners, cushion covers, or just cut down to be used in a different project. Fabric is SO expensive, l don't waste it.

Oh Dr. David, I do not feel so bad.  I too have many UFOs, trying to play catch up.  Hard part is new babies arriving and quilts required lol....

Good for you, Dr. David! I made a list a while back and I have at least 12, so I can relate.  I am not quite as good at not starting things, though. lol

After taking "stock" of my UFO's ... and yes, I've identified 20 ... I have determined that BEFORE beginning any "new" project, I will complete (?) my UFO list! Now, that may never happen, but I have, as of today, I have finished 3 of the 20! Onware and upward!

Hi everyone, Gail I just realize we are neighbors, well about 4 hours away. I moved from Texas to Pensacola about 9 months ago. Yes, I get the trees and leaves, but I am in the north area so I see too many trees.  I have not had much time to quilt, just running around more for my mom and keeping track of our 4 dogs. Today I got in a short walk and the humidity was so bad, I am not sure I will ever get used to that. I know there is a lot of beach here, but I still miss my lake. I will say though I am glad I can be here for my mom, it scares me what we all will have to face one day.  Last month I went to one of the Missouri Star functions. It was nice, but I don't feel a need to go back. I really never knew much about them or the videos. I will say that the classes they offered were so full and then the classes were just about selling things, not really teaching you anything, so I was a bit disappointed.

Happy 4th all ~ the fireworks are going off all around me in the neighborhood. Cruzer doesn't mind, the cat has been hiding out. Love all the quilts, Riana, I love the QOV! Karen, nice job on the Women of the Bible quilt, Linda's should be coming together pretty soon too. I didn't do one as I have sooo many in the pipeline, but it was a wonderful study lol

Has been a lazy day for me, started the day by swimming a long set of 20 laps, then a Zumba class was going to start so I went to do my last exercises and wind down and did a bit with them. Did my good deed by helping a woman who started talking to me about her health and inflexibility, so I showed her some moves she would be able to do to help and before I knew it, I'd been in the pool almost another hour.  oops !  Rushed home to start laundry, stripping beds, cleaning and I finally took some time to sew. Got Peyton's quilt in sections now, so just have to put the three together tomorrow night.  Phew .. and now it's time to stop

Gail we lived in Texas for 9 years after moving down from Wisconsin. I really missed the fall leaves, too. We came home for a visit in the fall and I loved walking down the street with the sound of the crackling of the leaves under my shoes. They have nicer trees in the southern parts of Texas then they had in Fort Worth.We had cactus. It was nice to come home to a real tree. Had a lot of adventurous experiences in Texas but the country was dry. The Texas sky was beautiful. We home schooled our kids a few years and took a vacation in December and went camping. It was cold at night but beautiful 70 degree weather in the daytime. Lots of prairie dogs and armadillo. Fun!!
