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.

Mary that is gorgeous!

Gorgeous quilt, Mary! ...and hand quilted, too! It's a treasure! Put a bug in the auctioneer's ear about stressing the Labor of Love that it was and the value. That should get the bids up there. Hopefully!

I sure wish we could be selective about where our snow goes. I'm with Rogue, Sue. If we could put it in the mountains for snow pack, we could take several feet of your white stuff, gladly!

Beautiful quilt Mary.  Yes, giving it away would be difficult.

agreed on the white on whites ..pretty but like stitching thru painted fabric. i only machine quilt. kudos to you mary for dong that huge quilt by hand. beautiful!! i love blu & white. i too hope it raises a ton o'money!!

sue -thank you, but not now dear, the fruit trees starting to bloom. maybe if you could drop a bunch in the mountains for later? we're currently at 20% of normal snow pack, the irrigation canals aren't filled yet and water rationing has already been initiated. gonna be a long harsh summer for local farmers. and they're still trying to clean birds and marshy waterways of the oil spill.

Mary, that's heirloom quality! l hope it raises a HUGE donation. l know what you mean about the white on whites...for the newbies, that's a white fabric with a denser  overlay of white pattern...quilting those by hand can be tough on the fingers, even after prewashing.

First, Hi Bette.  Hang in there, our silliness will make sense eventually

Friday, I finished the Fire Department Raffle Quilt.  And learned again, it is miserable to hand quilt on white-on-white fabric.  Does not needle well.  I am having trouble giving this away.  My favorite blues are in it, and my best work so far.  Sun is coming in the window at bottom right.  Colors really are better balanced. This pattern was the last one in my bucket list to do.  Will get better pictures for the gallery.

Now I get to get out my RRRRto go(or "round robin really raring to go") and figure out borders.

Beth's party sounds so fun.
