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.

For QOV enthusiasts, I don't know if y'all have seen this ..

NICE blocks ~~ this is a BOM from Quilters Newsletter and any of the blocks are awesome. I am going to do a 1x a month QOV sewing / cutting arrangement for our state .. like I need another project, but this is a community service dear to my heart ...

I will post the EQ Drawing I did of the pinwheel log cabin ~~ it would be a great stash buster.  For me, I am going to do the scrap cut up method so I can organize a bit more as I am going to the do the new Bonnie Hunter scrap quilt too ~~ am furiously digging thru my stash and I have come up with a color scheme of my own  hahahaha  Of course, once a day I am going to be working on SOMETHING .. trying to find this HUGE cabin quilt into a shipping container .. you guys should see this   hahahahaha

You have no idea Carla.  To think in 2012 I had over 150 of the little buggers to deal with and that did not include the kits I have acquired since then/along the way. 

On the list for my Scraps will be a Dear Jane quilt.  That is going to be an intense project for sure.  The Bonnie Hunter mystery will help with some scraps, and then going to do the spiral log cabin quilt I saw on Facebook.  Deanna did a mock up of the blocks.

Oh I so wish.  Happy dance I do get to do, but.....  there are several quilts that are in the WIP process (12 that I have cut up partly sewn, but set aside for only a month or two or working on for Christmas), (10) that are cut up waiting for me to start, (28) project kits that I have purchased over the last few years, (10) block swap quilts that need put together, and (13) quilts to be quilted.  Once those are done I get to buy fabric again.  Plus have to do those scraps into quilts.  Yep, will be on a fabric diet for some time.  Oh I have plenty of fabric for backs of quilts in the stash that need used up.  The only fabric I may be buying will be some solids to go with the scraps to get them used up.  I need to be able to stay at home to get these done.

Ladies, ladies, ladies, an announcement:

I am down to only 6 UFOs left to do.  My goal is to finish them by the end of this year.  It is going to take some real focus to do as such.  My goal is to at least finish the tops.  I am not going to stress over the quilting at this point.  Just to finish those tops would be wonderful!!!!!!  of course they are all cut up and ready to go with a couple partly sewn.  I just need to finish them.  After I finish up the grandbaby quilt, which is turning out adorable, I will get onto the crazy star quilt top, then hunter star, then 30s quilt, then moose wall hanging applique (barring I can find where I put it again), then, a cow wall hanging I cut up 10 years ago, then last but not least the pickle dish quilt.  I can't believe I found one from that long ago again.  It was hiding from me in behind a couple other project bags.  Goodness gracious me.  I think I may finally be rid of projects cut up from so long ago.

No, not in batting, it is on the border front side of the quilt.  It just blended in so well. 

Now I would put a cardinal on the label if it were me that way they would not rip it off, and you still get it in there.  Or, if necessary, one block on back with the cardinal there appliqued.  It would be a lot of work to get it off.

Beth - what a funny story.  I'm just close to finishing the top of my DS Chargers quilt - hmmmm - how could I add a Cardinal in it.  That would be a hoot.

Karen -  not being able to taste doesn't do anything for calorie loss  -  I get too hungry and have to eat something.

Beth, did you put it in with the batting or binding?
