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.

Yes, Riana, the Go Baby is carried at a quilt store in Bells Corners (on the way to Kanata) and it is expensive.  While watching T.V. last night I traced applique patterns on Heat 'n Bond Lite for 6" blocks.  So I don't mind doing my fusible applique the traditional way.

I am all ready to sandwich my Baby Boy Quilt.  I was going to do it today but we needed a load of groceries, so it's early morning and I've worn myself out! LOL.  And I'm sewing another crib sized quilt I've called the "Cat Quilt" with one of those 3 yard patterns!  It's going fast!

Liz, l got the Go Baby when travelling to Tx. 10 yr ago. They are more $ now, and the dies l got on sale at Joannes there are not carried by Joannes in Fla. at all! I can't say l need any more...l have the applecore, the cute cars and rose of sharon appliques, and hexie. The hexie's a dissappointment, because there are 3 sizes at once. And the second size is NOT the size that papers for largest would be. I have enough anyways, as most of my quilts are basic straight cuts. I would love the drunkard's path or improved 9 patch, if l ever come across them on sale.

Dee, l see why the wide block needs to be at the center.How about trimming the top AND bottom of your tall one?( See my alteration to your block) Then you can sash above all 3 for a unified seamline.. I know he'll sit a bit lower, but l think that may work, depending on your choice of border.

Maybe put him in the center?

Hello all ~ catching up again ... we have all been busy sewing .. lots to look at ! I have been working steadily clearing my table, one pile left to go to VA, making progress on quilts for son's girls, Doug's daughter's kids (x3) is in progress, and then I have 2 for daughter and one for nephew .. I will definitely have to take my girl in for a holiday spa day :) I am trying to make the last row on an elephant quilt, floating appliqued fabric embroidery elephants, which are darn cute. Did sash between blocks and rows, but this last row the elephant was taller so have to float it differently - hoping that the cute quilting pattern will make it not seem so odd ..  what do you think ?  I cannot add a 'row' sash due to the height of the corner elephant, so the sash will only be above the middle and right hand blocks .. will it be terrible ?  This little one is only 1, it will be used I hope and of no concern ..

Riana, I'm jealous - you have a Go Baby!  I wonder if I'd use one if I had one.  We don't use dryer sheets so I couldn't sew strips to one.  I could use Ricky Timms soft interfacing I have lots of sheets.

Meant to say "live" instead of "lie" in my last comment.  Freudian slip - it is a bit untrue! Haha!

Wilma, I looked at the site of My Girlfriends Quilt Shoppe.  It looks like a very nice store.  I wish that I was into machine embroidery.

I spoke to my daughter on-line yesterday.  No wild fires in her area of central B.C.  She is very busy canning and doing baking to sell at their weekly marketplace, besides her animals and farm garden.  She kept back 50 chickens from the slaughterers because they were small.  She fattened them up and slaughtered them herself.  They are for her because she can't sell them.  She also has a full-time job selling school supplies.  I was teasing her that we'd come and lie with her and I'd help her with her chores.  Can you imagine that?  I'd be as useless as (you know the rest of the saying) LOL

Prayers for Zoe and all those affected by hurricane Sally.

Riana, I talk on-line with a new quilter, named Nicole, who lives in Belleville.  She shops at the Fabricland in Belleville and at a quilt shop on Hwy. #2.

I looked at the classes offered by Sew Steady and I would need to get into ruler work to benefit from the classes.  I would need to buy the Bernina ruler work foot before I started.  Must think about this.

Sewing the last border on my Baby Boy Quilt today.
