"This quilt was something else to make. Mainly because I have Windows 10 and didn't realize the PDF files printed in whatever size Windows decided. You could choose "Actual". And I had cut out all the diamonds which was the template…"

Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I am a 74-year-old wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. I have loved sewing for many years and quilting is my passion now. I am retired from the Credit/Finance field and just enjoy time with my family. Lots of time with my husband of 56 years.
I love to make quilt tops, trying to do more machine quilting. I love paper-piecing, I am a Carol Doak fan and belong to her groups.
I enjoy swaps also. Do way too many of those? I have so many UFO's it is beyond embarrassing.

thanks for the invite. i do not consider blocks as UFO's. i also don't consider vintage or antique unfinished quilt tops as UFO's. have several. they are colectables. and if i finish them great. if not...the fabric is why i acquire them...not to finish something left behind by a passing or physical inability to finish by another long ago quilter. and the blocks? i make muslin samples to test block pattern from old mags or of my design ...then sample of scrap fabric to further test block. now i have eq to more easily test color mixes....but i have lots of solitary blocks, mine and those of other quilters from the past. i am a graph person, now an eq person. i know that in the past, and now, many quilters make blocks w/o planning. when they have a quilt top the size they want they usually have what is now referred to as "orphan" blocks. either as test blocks or excess blocks...they were not i tended to all be used in a quilt. ergo- i don't consider them ufo's. is that wrongful thinking? don't know. don't much care. i just like to have fun...and quilting is my fun - the ROGUE quilter :))
