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, a binding in charcoal grey (perhaps 1/2" wide instead of the narrow standard) would give it the finish it deserves, just like the narrow frames on archival prints.Black would be, perhaps, too harsh.

i have a growing stash of cw & 1800's repro fabric scraps ..this quilt gives me some great ideas for using them. when i have enough :))

saw this posted by you on the stash busting page. i love this, fell absolutely in love w the images. was going to ask you if they were embroidered or ?? and were they of the old buildings in your town. i think any border for it should be minimal and more like one of those picture frames w thin black frame. the quilt is beautiful, and the images should be the focal on this. INMHO :))

Thank you whoever posted their Civil War era reproduction quilt.  I had a dab of those fabrics and these couched yarn pictures(UFO's) of the old buildings around here. To border or not??  and how? Only fabric left is the pale yellow.

A few weeks ago someone posted a lovely quilt made with Civil War Era Reproduction fabrics.  I had a really old UFO of couched yarn patches of the old buildings around here...and a small pile of those same fabrics.  It is a great blend.  I am out of everything except the pale yellow border or not?? Only 63"x72".

my wwww rr will have to wait for winter & completion of older WIP' ...WIVSPs'. :)) summer, in my world, is not for quilting. but i have had some fun free (rare) time making a few pincushions, sorting out & washing more fabric to take w on next trip to see my grand treasures in august. son says oldest child is avidly sewing whenever they're at his place. i left an older necchi for both girls to use. the youngest isn't interested, i guess only if gramma ham is there to join in the fun :))

...oh, did we get dee on the list of finished wwww rr's? so to put a list here ...

mary moore
linda (except for binding)
.....not bad! 6 out of 8 finished. sorry to be the baddy here, but it was my stated thing while we worked on our rr's. i love my rr quilt top, it's so beautiful! so many beautiful & uniquely personal quilt blocks & it will be finished! i would like to hand quilt it like mary did hers ..but that would put the finish out a few more years!

Linda, We've moved several times and had to  put our stuff in storage until we finally got into our own place. It was fun to open up boxes and see what we had. though it was our old stuff it felt like Christmas.

l still need to complete my wwwwrr. Now that l have the house back after grandkids' stay, l should be able to get to it...just need to finish a special quilt for an  8 yr. old cancer patient.

hi karen ...good to hear you got the rock moved, one daughter taken care of & off to care for the other. hope your girls know what a treasure they have for a mom!
Comment by Karen Newman Brown on July 26, 2015 at 3:49pm

Linda - great to hear your back in your own place and feeling so good!  Prayers keep coming!

Wilma - Welcome!  I ditto what others have said!  Good group to chat with as well as other things.

Linda - I think Beth, Ginny and I have all posted ours as finished.  I'm not sure of anyone else's.  I am trying to get all my pics on my home page for the  WWWRRRR blocks I did for other's.  I'm not sure I will get them assigned to the right person!

All you gardeners---finished a landscaping project that so I feel I have a little camaraderie with you other gardeners!  Granted, 10 years ago it would have taken a weekend and it took us 2 months!  Can we blame it on the weather?  I personally blame in on the 3 tons of big rock that we picked and then had to move!  I will post it when I get back home!

Colorado daughter had another leg surgery so we have been the nursing crew for the past week!  Rather a boring job but she has great neighbors!  After we get home from this one I go off to the oldest daughter in Iowa whose husband has been back in the hospital (they just moved and she is finishing her last semester for her degree next month.)  Definitely will be a busy time on that visit and lots of GK time as she has 4! 

Will really need to get sewing when I come home because I have deadlines that are coming up!!!!!
