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.

My new dishes!  The cups and saucers are left from my old set.  They weren't used much.

I did a couple of hours of ironing downstairs this morning.  And I'm back to my priority - Tulip Twist blocks now.

Some times the "ugly" or what was I thinking fabrics supply just the right look.  I've done that and wondered why I thought it was ugly.

Good luck with your Pansy Garden Linda.  I know it will be beautiful.

Kris, that's a beaut! Such a rich set of colours , and stars are some of my favourite designs.

Zoe, when you're auditioning fabrics, throw a couple of " weird" colours you wouldn't normally chose on the pile of fabrics and see what happens. Often small amounts of fabrics that we thought would " clash" or " not go with _____" are just those that give your quilt the sparkle!

Beautiful quilt, Kris!

I've started my Thimbleberries pansy garden quilt. I'm on block #3. I can't afford to make any mistakes. I cut this out years ago and I don't think there's any extra fabric anywhere. I learned with block #1 that it requires slightly less than 1/4" seams to make the block size. Did a lot of ripping on that block....LOL!

Thanks for telling the story of this quilt, Linda. What a wonderful treasure to have made for her.

Gorgeous, Kris! Turquoise is in the green family and would be beautiful!

Kris, the Tapestry Quilt looks so beautiful with the borders!  You must be so happy to see it going together.

Happy New Year!  I started working on my Tulip Twist today.  I had to figure out how I left it and get back in the groove.  I made a major mistake on 1 block and I had to use another piece of beige for the background - I don't have any extra yardage, just the fabric that comes with each block.  But maybe I won't have to use that block in the quilt as I have 3 extra blocks.

My son and my DIL will be coming to pick us up at 4:00 P.M. to take us to dinner at the Mandarin - my favourite restaurant which will be extremely busy today.

New Year's Resolution # 1  Let's all stay as healthy as we can.  Do not drink that whole bottle of champagne alone. Hugs all around.
