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.

Here you go Vickie...the top ones are Terry twists, the bottom ones are Cc's ( concentric circles)... did a sketch because ones on coverlette don't show up much, since it's so flat.

What is a Terry twist? Can you post a pic?

It is the thought and heart that counts Riana : )

That's Sashiko quilting, and Terry twists,sigh , can't type today!

Well, I started the first coverlette...not too happy. Firstly, the Brother 6000i that I bought my dd (terrific little sewing machine for the money) has a tiny wee throat. Stitches fmq beautifully, but my it is hard to deal w/that small throat. So next one I'll do on the old Jeans machine,only an inch more, but every bit counts.

Then, instead of "just a grid", I decided on "teyye twists", which usually look great over a grid of squares, but not so much on 5" squares and no batting. Oh well, we live & we learn. There are 4 blocks of plain pale pink in center, so I'm going to practice Shiko quilting on that part by hand...hope to at least make the center pretty:)

Hi Riana,

If the recipient doesn't have a/c, a coverlette without batting is the way to go.  And your idea of a simple grid (my earlier thought too) is appropriate.

Elizabeth, some of these quilts go to single moms on low income...doubt there's enough in the budget for air conditioning...they struggle for necessities.

Well, l'll call tgem coverlettes, not  quilts...but will do simple grid as those of you who've done these suggest.They're such an odd assortment of squares they won't win a beaty contest anyway...but each recipient will certainly always recognize their own:)

Just heard from Rogue...she's been pretty sick, but starting to win the battle.
