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.

Beth this is going to look really good!  I like the pattern and your colors1

Didn't get a chance to work on the quilt with GD but have picked out the pattern and will have the fabric ready for her next time she comes.  This is a scrap quilt.  The pattern is called Super by Gudurn Erla of G>E> Designs and it was in Fons and Porters mag Fall 2011.  The pattern isn't there, but an easy one to figure out.  We are going for a lap quilt this time. 

Riana - first we have to finish emptying everything next month and then let me at it!

I have gotten this far now.  I am determined to finish this tonight even if I have to stay up till midnight, it is going to get done.  That is final!!!!!

This is not on my FIUP Challenge list, but finally getting it done.  It has been cut up and sitting around since 2007 or 2008, can't remember.  I ran into an issue of figuring out how to swap the fabrics.  This pattern, Crazy Rays from Buggy Barn, actually has a double swap.  You have to change the colors then swap the fabrics around.  I have had to rip a couple times, but they are at least in block stage.  Barring no complications this evening, this top should be done tonight.  Will keep you posted.

Karen, have fun teaching the grandd. how to sew...doll-sized quilt maybe?... and the extra space? QUICK! move in a frame and a mid arm, before someone decides to move back in! LoL.

Mary - that is a gorgeous quilt!  Hope it brings in a price that is worthy of all your work!

Bette - welcome to our group!  We love sharing, so please share your work with us!

Not much sewing going on around here.  Have been finishing up the work on the building we have for sale and our down to moving a few things out and we are done!  Now if only the sale keep moving forward as planned.

Also in the process of reclaiming our own house after 10 years of one kid or another either sharing our living space, or at least storing their stuff.  The last one is moving into his own house in the middle of April.  D and I won't have a clue what to do with all the extra space, but are definitely looking forward to figuring it out!

Have GD for the next two days during her Spring break so off to play some games and figure out some great stuff to do for the next couple of days.  If we can't get away (few unscheduled things have popped up) maybe I can get her interested in starting her first quilt!?  I am sure I can find some fabric around!!!

Have a Happy St. Patty's day!  We had 80 temps yesterday, but back to the 50's the rest of the week.  Just enough to tease!!!  I'm with the rest that need moisture.

Happy St Patricks Day ♧

It was a joyous time on Saturday.  Looking forward to another fun day with the ladies in the future.  Have a wedding to prepare for, bridal shower at my house, and company for Easter.  I am booked up until June I say, but Ginny suggested in August when it is all over, she is probably right.  Hubby and I enjoyed the last of the corned beef.  Was delicious for sure.  Next time won't make so much extra, lots to eat and hopefully does not go to waste.  Will freeze up some of the leftovers so I don't let it spoil.
