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.

Riana - that double piping is lovely!

My first attempt at a Ricky Tims' Kaleidoscope quilt.  Not very good, but now that I know how it works, I think I can do a much better job the second time around.

Yesterday, l completed the binding on the biblical sample quilt. I tried a new method of finishing...a double piped edge! Blue, then white next to the rose colour binding.

Zoe, there's nothing wrong with saving a couple of patterns you like for future quilts, lol. I have 6 in a  " star list" l want to try in the near future.

My stash is shrinking after quilt & mask making.There's a huge boost in fabric prices this yr., so it'll stay on the small side...but l have still got plenty of squares , 2.5" up to 5.5"  and a few orphan blocks that l'll be putting to use along with my strings & strips. Lately, l've taken a page from Liz's book and l'm making more pieced backs.

Thank you everyone for the sweet comments. I can barely move today, so sore even my teeth hurt ! I will be fine, in a day to two. Yesterday I had to get the backyard cleaned up to the point that my mom could walk out there again. There is some light clean up to do still, but that can wait. 

Yes, I feel blessed to have great neighbors. I have been here for almost 3 years and know most of the people, others who have lived here longer have been surprised that I know more people than they do. It has helped that my mom used to walk the area as her husband did too, and now they only see me walking and so often it is by association that we have gotten to know each other.  This other woman that will be moving here, sounds like a lot of fun. Most people here are married and so no real room for a friend to hang out with, so I look forward to her moving here. She had moved to NY to care for her mom, so she understands what I did too. Also, on the neighbors, most were in the service like I was. I did not like that at first, but there is a commonality that links us all , regardless of branch. 

Elizabeth, I read your post about " National Jelly Roll day", that sounds like fun ! I started looking at different ways to use them... then I can hear Riana tell me, Don't start another  I hope tomorrow I can get back to my nephews quilt.

Mary is between the two big fires which are far away.  We have a wonderful women who has a news website that tells us about everything happening locally.  I visit her when ever I hear a siren or airplane.

Zoe, in a funny way this is a blessing as you now know more of your neighbors, who sound great.  You are great at being as prepared as possible.

Thank you, Gail!  Guess it is good that I don't have a dog to kick!  Hubby says I need more patience.

Comment by Barbara Hughes yesterday

Zoe, also you were a smart cookie to prepare ahead of time including food preparation and water in the freezer.

Comment by Barbara Hughes yesterday

Zoe, So glad to hear you are safe and the damage wasn't as bad as it could have been. Always nice to find a true friend in the midst of hard and difficult situations.

Comment by Ginny Andersen yesterday

Zoe, so glad to hear that you are okay. What an ordeal and what amazing neighbors you all are; both you and them!! Just heard from my aunt last night. She was evacuated from her home in CA. Have we heard from Mary? I know Joaquin is involved in the firey areas, too.

Comment by Gail Brown yesterday

Zoe, I am so glad you are safe.  It sounds like you had a lot of cleaning up to do, I understand what that is like.  We lost a lot when we lived in Florida from hurricaine michael.  My son called and told me that the town we lived in there is under 2 feet of water so I guess I'm glad we left but I still miss my friends there.

Elizabeth, we're all entitled to a little snit once in a while.  It's better than going home and yelling at your hubby and kicking the dog.
