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.

Hi Pjam,

I've been to Quilt Canada in Ottawa twice, in Halifax, and in Montreal.

Hi Pjam,

I've been quilting quite a while and at the beginning I hand quilted everything.  And at that time I also worked so I would set a goal of hand quilting 1 block per week.  It would take me 6 months or so to finish a quilt.  Now, I machine quilt everything but our quilt world has changed so much.  Now we try to do so much more.  I only hand quilt with a Church group and it is like setting the clock back to a more leisurely pace when I'm there.

Beth - So that's where we got WWWW for our row robin.....wild, wacky, wonderful, women. Pretty good description of us I think.

It's funny you mention dog damage on a quilt Karen....the quilt on our bed is missing a corner because our son's  dog literally ate it...a pretty big chunk !!!!!

Yeah !!! Thanks Elizabeth, I'm  glad not yo be the only Canadian  on board here.  I've  only ever been to one Quilt  Canada....when it was here in Calgary.  This year is the "off" year, so in a smaller city.....right here in Lethbridge AB, organized by the guild that I'm president of.  So we're  plenty busy witg organizing it. So if any of you happen to be anywhere near Lethbridge (it's  only just over the border from Montana) we would love to welcome you June 4-6 at the university.

Oh,  it stares at me, but obviously it's  not impressing me much, Elizabeth.  And since it's  a matter of handquilting 3/4 of a queen size quilt,  I  think it'll  not get a turn until after the quilt show this year.....which may mean not until next year, because our youngest daughter is expecting a little one in June,  which involves a lot of grammy sewing and knitting....but I  love it, so it's  all good.

I have 3 UFO's for definite.  I have 2 quilts that got dog damage back in the early 90's and have been living in my trunk since then.  I also have a crocheted afghan that I made in the 70's that have a broken thread that is also on my list. I hope to finish up my wwwwrr but don't quite classify it as a UFO yet.
