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.

deanna - that is just so beautiful! there are no words. i look and look. it is so simple. so why do i find it so enchanting... maybe the colors..i love all the subtle and delicate tones in this quilt.

...and of course...if you decide that it is a tad too quiet for your energy levels. why....just send it to me! send Postage COD to ....... :))

Good point Viki, when I was just on a quilting spree, I took my bolts of fabric, sewed them together to make large enough and assembly lined sewed them together.  It worked real well.  I may have to do that for the 8 of mine sitting there ready to go.  But, alas, I have got the backs with them already and it is just a matter of taking the time to do them.  I am so funny.  I think they are not done because I want to play on them instead of "just" quilting them.  I want to try Baptist Fans, Circle Lord one piece playing, and then practice some new ideas on feather all overs by Sue Patten.  Yep, starting to feel adventurous.  Well, off to teach my class today.  It will be fun, only one student signed up.  I believe whether is 1 or 10, you still continue with the class.  They took the time to sign up, you better be available to do what you said you were going to do.  I do not like it when teachers cancel the class because one or two signed up.  So I do not do that.  Thread Play is fun.  Nancy Prince on The Quilt Show has a freebie class there if you become a member (subscribe to the site).,  I went thru the trouble to get permission to teach it, going to take that opportunity.  Word of mouth here in Spokane is very valuable.

I found a Civil War repro that just might do it ... after auditioning fabrics on the wall last night (til 2am), and now I'm organizing stash pulling it out on the table and folding (compulsive ? -- I want it to look like Bonnie Hunter's eventually -- neat!) I'm thinking of nice civil war back is what it needs .. more on that later ..

Bread didn't turn out half bad, but I need to add more sourdough to compensate for the gluten me thinks. It did taste awfully good :D  It didn't elevate for it's long rise before shaping enough for me, but the oven spring was good.

Today is: ride my horse, garden and weeds for a few hours, and then a soccer tournament with the cuzns at a State Park outside Little Rock somewhere .. need some family time :D

Off to a great start !

I can relate to that, I owned a quilt shop in southern Utah until I moved to MO. I miss having the great big selection of the shop at my fingertips.

I piece a lot of backs too though, sometimes it just seems the right thing to do, but when I have a bunch of quilts that just need finished..I'm taking that shortest direction to finished that I can.

Comment by Deanna Davis on April 6, 2013 at 12:10am is one that carries the larger one.. after having worked in a quilt shop and having it available, NOT finding it is the hardest  hahahaha  One more reason to make the back my way ..


Comment by viki hagan on April 5, 2013 at 11:51pm

that's true Deanna, it's harder to find the much wider ones.. I did see them on a site recently, if I can find it again I'll let you know.. although I don't think their prices were nearly as reasonable.

Take that back, I had to not just join, I had to register too -- now I found it !  My problem is that when I make the 'big quilts', I need 110" or 120" sometimes and there aren't too many places that carry it ...


Comment by Deanna Davis on April 5, 2013 at 10:51pm

Viki, I just joined the site so I could look for those backs and I can't find them... drat !

Comment by Deanna Davis on April 5, 2013 at 10:14pm

Beth, I can never get as much done as you, but I'm trying to finish all those things that I've put aside. I'm psyched for it. I'm going to make the binding for this quilt and I'll drop you a message :D   Beth, I get a doz every other day hahahaha  I sell the eggs to certain persons on my weekly trip to town .. pays for the pelleted feed and the flock is entertainment to say the least. I could bring you some when I take that trip to your house :->

I like to make backs out of the extra fabrics .. but if I had a bolt of a backing that went with everything that would be cool too. I'm not too sure what I'm going to do for the back of this one. I've got a large brown floral that I can surround with different fabrics to make up my needed dimension. Sometimes it can take as much time as the front without making the blocks  LOL

Going to audition the fabrics on the wall and see what I come up with  .. this weekend I am going to get ON my horse with my new saddle and ride around the puddles ... didn't get the Vitamin D I wanted on the deck, but on the way back from town I stopped at the place I put in an application for a job .. xing fingers actually ... like I need something ELSE to do  ...

oh.. if you go to that site to look, you have to 'join' in order to see the prices..just an fyi if you don't like joining various sites, I know some people don't
