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.

The patterns were a mixture of drawn illustrations in a fund raising cookbook, and my drawing from old and new photographs.  Transferred to the fabric with spit pen, I laid the cotton yarn over and caught it from underneath about every 1/4 inch with black quilting thread.  I intended to quilt with the pale yellow in a close diamond grid to further secure the yarn.  I have already washed one of the patches in a normal wash load, and laid it flat to dry.  Now I can't tell which one I washed so I think the method is working.

My wwww row robin is waiting to be finished quilting.  It is half done.  It is on my list for this coming month to finish.

Welcome Wilma.

Mary that quilt looks awesome with the extra blocks in it.

Thank you all for the comments, much appreciated.

Back from the vacation finally.  My zucchini is now 16 pounds, the pumpkins are size of basketballs, the gourds have taken over but are now trimmed back, the regular zucchini are large but picked, the cukes are producing, sunflower is 12 feet tall, and all is weeded.  That was in the weekend.  Did not do any sewing, but this am got one of my row by rows completed.  Hoping to finish one up this week so I can get it into a shop.  Hubby was such a dear on the trip, he took me to nine quilt shops so I could pick up the patterns.  Was wonderful.  Yes, bought some fabric as well, but it will look nice with the fish themed blocks I got.

Love the quilt Mary. I think a boarder would be nice with it. Something that brings it all together. I love the buildings. Did you draw them yourself or have a pattern to follow.

Where are you Sue P???

Hi Mary,

I was the one who posted the photo of my Civil War Melodies quilt.  I love your quilt!  I have never heard of making pictures with couched yarn.  How did you do it?

Mary, I love this quilt.  And the couched yarn pictures are wonderful.  I agree with Rogue on the border.

another reason why drones for any fool who has a few extra $'s to play, should be outlawed

Too much smoke in the air to breath tonight.  A fire about 30-40 miles away (horse ranch country)  has been going since yesterday.  They are evacuating animals to the county fair grounds, people to Nevada City's High School.  Two fire fighters have been injured.  I hope the drones aren't getting in the way for this one.

Speaking of the wwwwrr quilters...has anyone heard from Sue P. lately? Maybe she's busy quilting hers right now:)
