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.

Thank you Mary, the gals at the quilt shop said, " You will get hungry when you work with these fabrics" ! The oranges, did make my mouth

I know this is bright and bold, but my nephew wanted a fruit and veg quilt. I have enough fabric left over to make his girl friend a quilt- I am using a different pattern. They are both vegetarians.

Riana, love the way you laid out those love letters blocks.  It's always fun to see what happens when a whole new secondary pattern emerges.  When I saw you picture I didn't even see the love letter blocks until I looked closer.

Riana, Look at Knitpics Yarn online.  We have been using the Pallett line for the tapestry, and I have made several pairs of socks with it and other of their lines.  Very responsive if a problem.  Wild selection at Jimmy Beans (again online) with better prices on his "Wool Watchers" sale site.

Hi Riana,

Your latest quilt -in-progress reminds me of my friends who I meet up with on Tues. and Thurs. mornings who like to do jigsaw puzzles.  I always need a starting point, something on paper, to initiate a project.  It's amazing how you can just start laying out parts of a block and come up with a quilt top.

I spent yesterday watching T.V. and sewing 12 1/2" pieced scrap blocks for backing.  I got a lot of them done.  I need 36 for my next Sampler quilt.

Welcome Donna! We all have plenty of UFO's to work on, plus lots of great support and friendship to share. Would love to see your work!

Only 4 weeks left in Fla. and l've been quilting the last of my projects then must bind. Not wanting to start something l can't finish, so peeked in the group's ufo box and found a bag full of partly completed " love letters" blocks. So here l The sewist oriented them differently than this pattern usually is. I found that laying them with like colors meeting creates a pretty secondary going along with it.

Welcome, Donna. Glad you made it here. Post a photo when you've chosen your first ufo to work on...we like to see them " in progress"!

Mary, last summer l priced sock yarn, and nearly fainted. $16 a ball...needed 2 for a pair. AND you still had to knit them! Decided not to. But the last pairs l made went to my daughter 6 yr. ago. She still has one pair, the others wore thru used in boots.
