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.

Zoe, l get so tired after digging  raking, hauling ( guess l got out of shape over winter)...l'd just fall asleep on a nice soft foam slab.  ha ha ha!

My Easter present arrived! Only you all would understand how this made me smile!

I've finished up the last of several cones of thread this week.These came just in time!

Riana you sure are right about the outside work cutting into quilt time. I have still been going at it all strong. I found a place in the from that I still need to finish before I start on another area.  Then a helper came over to help me plant mondo grass as a lawn in one large area. I got to the dentist twice this week to fix the same tooth.  While there I found out the young man the quilt is for graduates from collage this summer, and is going to medical school. 

I am going to try and just sew tomorrow and Sunday, the new quilt room cabinets should all be in this next week, so that will be nice to have that all done... then the sorting and putting away.  

My mom got her second shot today and we walked the halls after that so she would work on her stability.  If you all are able too, get a balance pad kind of like this ,, any brand. It really helps work the small muscles that many of us don't use, but we need. My mom had bought two, I took one and put it in front of the TV and just stand on it, sometimes I do more.   Balance Pad for Exercise and Physical Therapy - Extra Large Non-Slip Foam Pad for Fitness,Yoga, Strength and Stability Training – Use as Knee Pad or Meditation Cushion

I didn't do much more after you left to make dinner, Riana, but in the evening I cut out half a scrappy quilt.  My fabric pieces are so little - hardly any of them are more than a FQ.  I just calculated the size of each block in a picture of a quilt in the CT catalog and got my "pattern".  I cut up a 1/2 meter of an animal print and about 5 different shades of grey. Still have to figure out what to cut up for the 10 1/2" squares.  I have a big flowered yellow and grey and that might do or I could use a soft grey - that would be the best!

Liz, sorry our time together was so short. I'd gotten quite tired working outdoors most of the was so nice to have a visit, even though l wasn't getting much work on that quilt done. Outdoor work sure bites into my sewing time!

I worked on the backing for my Sleepover Quilt.  I quilted with Riana for a while in the afternoon.  She is making a lovely little quilt with a nautical theme.

I had a sore arm last night but I slept well and I am starting the day slowly.  I'm here in my jammies.  I've made my coffee and my hot cereal with strawberries.

Mary, the only way to get better at machine quilting is to just do it! The more you do, the better yoj get. I abhorred the idea when l was told the hospitals would only accept machine quilting. But then l realized these quilts may need washing daily because of treatments that upset digestive systems... and those huge institutional washers are not for delicate items. I found fmq best because l didn't have to keep turning the quilt like when using walking foot. I learned by reading articals and practice. Now a days, we have You tube... much nicer for visual learners.

Betsy Langford is trying to figure out why we cannot see what's posted here on home page. I have missed 2 whole pages of conversation because nothing said here shows up on the home page...which is where My Quilt Place opens to on the shortcut from my tablet. I don't use the email notification because my email is for personal correspondence only.
