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.

Think I am going to try to put a few boards down on the hardwood floor.  I will practice very safely first.  Paul is getting really restless, and needs to see some progress on his project.

Small world! My Hawaiian fabric was just a few fat quarters. My fave is a black background with vibrant hibiscus and bird of paradise flowers on it. Too pretty to use,lol!

Beth and Riana, I think that I was in that shop too!  Remember the blocks that you were helping me sew together, Riana?  I used lots of my Hawaiian fabrics in those blocks.

Beth l was on the island of Maui 5 yr. ago, and may have been in the same shop. In small town near that huge historic banyan tree! The proprieteress was so knowledgeable! Many of the lovely floral prints she carried feature plants that actually grow just in Hawaii, some only near the volcanic sites.

So, this morning, I'm going to sandwich my Pansy Quilt.  This afternoon I am going to make a cleaning sweep across the condo because my daughter and her friend are coming tomorrow morning.

That is what I did Riana, two large blocks and put them into pillows.  My daughter got those because she liked the design.  I actually did do needle turn applique and know that I don't think I will again. LOL  When we were in Hawaii, I went to a quilt store on Maui and took a class there.  It was fun and kept me occupied while watching football there with hubby.

I've saved a lot on Pinterest. When I'm ready I'll study more.

I ventured as far as doing a Hawaiian style block & made it into cushion. It was fun, but very time consuming! I hand basted my layer on . Now l don't even remember who ended up with it...

Haven't seen beads on a Hawaiian.  Hmm.

When we were at a square dance convention in Hawaii, I snuck away to see the Bishop Museum.  It happened to be an informal quilt meeting day of half a dozen Hawaiians. The one man was free hand experimenting- cutting patterns, the ladies were doing the applique stage on their quilts.  I was able to ask questions and  speak quilt with them.  My rather dumb question was how to hold all the fabric while appliqueing in the center of a big quilt.  The answer was to put it in a hoop. Duh..
