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.

There is such a wealth of free patterns out there for scrap quilters, Zoe. Liz mentioned 3 very good ones -,, and - all excellent sources of unlimited patterns.

Love all of the clothes you've made you gr'daughter, Riana! She is a lucky little girl to have you!

Riana, I passed on the washing instructions to Doug, who is the Dobi in our family.  He washes everything except the towels and underwear in cold.

We are on our way to the mall where the best chocolates in Canada are sold.  His tradition is to buy some for family and close friends every year.  Usually I don't go with him, but I'd like to talk him into a gift for me.  I'd like new everyday dishes.  Stay tuned if I get some this Christmas.

Riana, you made such nice clothes for your girls.  They are almost like costumes.They will be so thrilled

Wilma, I have a GGD but her mother, my GD, doesn't like the quilts I make.  And has turned down a quilt I wanted to send to Layla.  But my friend's GD just loved the quilt I made for her soon to be born son and her older children are squabbling over wanting to use it themselves, so I'm making those 2 little girls quilts.

Riana, how cute !!

Wilma, Let your sons boss pick out the fabrics or his wife and have them send to you, they need to understand there is time involved not just in the quilt making.  I made a neat quilt for some friends, they loved the quilt. She said, the ones in PA are so costly". I did not have the heart to tell her the true cost of her quilt. She makes jewelry.. did she give me anything she made?? nope

Riana, these are so cute....I hope one day I will be blessed with a GGD.

The boys received their packages today and called/texted to tell me they LOVED their quilts.  So glad they were happy with them.  They also loved their extra goodies.  
Son then texted and said a co-worker wants a quilt for his daughter.  Will see what happens there...

Tomorrow I am going to tackle the minkey project.  Will post when finished.

Liz, just wash with warm on perma press cycle and use perma press setting ( or synthetic) in dryer as well...remove as soon as the dryer stops. I used the overcasting/stretch stitch on my sewing machine ( would've used serger if l was home).

Riana, I love the minkee sweater for your grand daughter!  I have not worked with minkee - even flannelette stretches on me.  I bought myself a nightie with long sleeves and below the knee in length.  It is the softest material I have ever  felt. I just love going to bed in it!  It doesn't have a label saying what it is, nor washing instructions, so I don't know what it is made of.

Bonnie Hunter is the queen of scraps.  I love scraps as well.  I have one hanging up right now that is all red, green and light neutrals.  It makes a great Christmas quilt and reminds me of all the projects the scraps were from.  I hand pieced the blacks years ago while watching tv.  They laid around for  many years until the light bulb went off in my head and they became a quilt.  I put it together by hand and quilted it by hand.  It was a very satisfying thing to do.  I have found that every block can be a scrap block.
