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.

Thinking of Linda and Indy today...hope her move to Arizona went well. Likely it'll take a few days for her to recover from all that work, and also to get her internet up & computor unpacked. On my moves, the kitchen had to be unpacked first, but the sewing room was always a close second, lol.

Thanks, Carla! 

Barbara, you need to trust that you have done your project the way it needs to be done to insure that it will survive washing. Quilts are made to be washed, you know! :c))

Congrats on the ribbons girls!!!

Comment by Ginny Andersen on Sunday

To answer your question, Barbara, sometimes I wash them and sometimes I don't and I use my regular laundry soap, but less, on a gentle cycle. I know I should probably use a different soap, but like you, I haven't found the kind of soap that is recommended very easy to find. Have you checked on-line for the soap? 

Comment by Ginny Andersen on Sunday

Thank you, Dee, Barbara, and Riana! The quilt has one more stop at our local quilt show next month and then they will receive it at Christmas.

Ginny, l'll bet your sister can't wait to get the quilt once it's done showing at the fair :-)

Comment by Barbara Hughes on Sunday

Sorry Ginny, I did see Birdies in the Tree tops a while back. It's a beautiful quilt. After you put your quilt together, do you wash it before you show it at a fair and what kind of soap do you use? Weeks Riggle in a Craftsy Class said she washes it in Ivory Snow laudry detergent. What do you do? It is hard to find Ivory snow laundry detergent in the stores.

Thanks, Gals! Birdies is in my quilt pics. on my page.

Congrats Ginny !!  And yes, I do use a Word font ramped up to 500 before I print the letters. I wasn't happy with anything I found and then I had this idea, it worked.  The quilts are about 40-42" square and that size fits the size blocks.

I took Willow, one log cabin, my Pentacost banner from church, a crochet messy bun hat, a QOV group quilt and pillowcase, and some photography entries, a landscape, still life, and a portrait of Doug's grands .. I forgot one entry in the bottom of my bag .. smh  lol  Tonight I am still looking via organizing all the fabric I packed from the shelf unit into bins hoping I put it somewhere 'safe' .. I have one spot where I have all the 'ends' of quilts, which is where I should have put it .. it isn't there.  But tonight as I looked at a piece of background for my next QOV kit, this moda marble may work where I need it in a pinch  lol

Linda ~ 4 days !!  How exciting .. hope you are doing good !

Now that fair is over, Christmas is next !!  Stitch on!!

Congratulations on the fair ribbons , Ginny and Dee!

I got my top made for my sunroom, but will wait until later this season to quilt it. I'm busy canning my bumper crop of tomatoes...they just keep coming!
