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.

Wow Kris, your " mobile" home must be a double wide to have room for a sewing space like that! I have used my midarm Bailey as a sitdown, but prefer it in the basting! Looks like your quilt will be ready to assemble soon.

Mary, l see you have the same problem we often do. Trees fall into others and get hung up. Around here they're called " widow makers" because they can be really dangerous to down. Looks like you brought in some extra help & equipment. A smart move. We have 10 large maple trunks set aside for portable sawmill to come. Too bad it'll be put off another month or so. We had them stored nice & dry in our green vinyl hoop bldg., but now the trailer is back in storage there, so logs are outside during wet season.

Elizabeth, yes it is a sit down quilting machine - Tiara II, which is the same as the HandiQuilter sit down.  I like it :)

Glad your Tulip Twist quilting is going well!

Welcome back home, Kris.  You have a very nice sewing room.  The quilt blocks up on your design wall look great!  I didn't know that you had a quilting machine.  Is it a sit down model?

I have 5 blocks machine quilted on my Tulip Twist.  I have sorted out the initial problem and it is going well.  I hadn't released the pressure on the free motion quilting foot.

Hmm...didn't manage to get the second sewing room picture in that last post.  Here it is.

I'm back!!!   Trip was great, and I have gotten almost everything unpacked and put away.   I know a lot of folks don't like moving, but I do.  You all have been some very busy beavers while I meandered across these United States.  Love seeing all the pretty things you have made.  I sympathize with those facing their own health problems, or having to deal with those of others.  Hang in there, ladies.  Smile, play music, be kind to yourself - not just to others - and remember this, too, shall pass.  

I saw three barn quilts on the drive, all in Kentucky.  Got pictures of two, but barely caught a glimpse of the third one.  

I got the sewing room put together today. I was good, I did the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and living room first!  It's small and crowded but I can make it work.  

Tonight I can sew again!

Mary, the pic of your sweet rescue dog is in the SS page. You can  re-save it from there to keep as a memory of her. Did we see the raffle quilt that is being discussed? I am not sure which one it is. Take care with the wood splitting. Look at all that snow!

Once I put it in their hands it is their problem. 

Today's Problem: This large oak was trying to fall across the access road past our driveway. Roots had rotted away and it was stuck between two other trees.    On the good side, we heat with wood and love oak. Now Paul has to get his hand ready to split it all, with the splitter.

Mary, hopefully you still have the photo in your computor. Then you can repost it. So who decides your quilt's fate? A majority vote? An executive board? You?
