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.

Another wonderful back, Elizabeth! Those take as much work as a quilt top because they essentially ARE a quilt top.

Since l'd enlarged the original kit with borders, l had to be creative in extending the backing too. Aren't you proud of me taught me this :-))

Last month, our group had a sew- in to make quilts for a memory care center in Ocala. The committee made 23 kits up!

I ironed for 2 hours this morning so I am ready to sew the backing for the Sampler quilt "Cats, Pigs, and Dogs".  You will be able to see parts of cats and dogs but whole little pigs. Haha!

Sorry, Riana and Ginny.  I see I got everyone mixed up.This is the back of "Nice To Be Home".  What I meant to say was I used the "Nice To be Home " for the backing of another earlier quilt and it is only the scraps I used as 2 1/2" squares in the top of this latest quilt.  So the whole sentence is no where on the quilt.  But I know what the fabric originally said.  Clear as mud! LOL

Mary, what a fun way to spend a rainy day. We all know how important rainfall is where you live , no complaints, l'm sure.

My two grands, Byron 14 and Meredith 11 are here for a few days of their early Easter Break.  Heavy rain had us doing a puzzle and I was talking about my Delectable Mountain project (Riana sent me to a sight for really easy method).  They volunteered to help. Five hours later we have four finished blocks and about 15 more in progress.  The color combination is new to me and very mountainy and more masculine than usual.  I couldn't believe their concentration.  Took one picture of us all, but the camera is upstairs and it is bedtime.

Dee, sometimes wd need  a little time outside of quilting in order to regenerate artistic inspiration.

Comment by Riana Noyes yesterday

Elizabeth, l love how you transitioned the colour values in your latest quilt. 

Ginny, she used fabric that has words"nice to be home " on the back.

I've got a couple of projects l'm finishing this week. Then on Fri.I'm teaching a " walking foot " quilting class. After that, l must wrap it up for another season...we leave for Canada first week in April. Unfortunately, folks back home warned us that spring appears not to be showing up in Ontario any time soon, sigh.

Comment by Ginny Andersen yesterday

Wow! This is a bright one, Elizabeth, but gorgeous! Did you do anything special on the back of this one?
