but you have till August, so if you used some UFO's then you would only have to spend a couple of hours a months on it, that's only about 15 - 30 minutes a week???? come on, come play with us, you know you want to

I have been watching this thread with interest. It is getting closer to what I can do. I was looking for a partner who is on such a tight budget that they feel they can't really participate. I am a faux quilter. I can only piece and quilt by hand and the old hands are no longer cooperating. (Chemo left them numb to boot!) Applique I can do as long as it is by machine, so I guess I am classified as a topper. So I could do a top, add the batting and backing and my partner would have to do the quilting, or add borders or piecing then do the quilting.Too weird??

I found that I have not one but three Christmas ufo's. One is red/green/cream sorry not white.. then one is aqua blue/ red/green/white more modern moda pattern I think and another that is blue/white with hints of red and green more vintage like. I am willing to make a nice quilt out of these blocks if someone is interested. I can perk them up with a lovely border and well think they will be a pretty addition to someones holiday décor lol.. ok ufo's trying a hard sell here lol. I have to get that box under control or go nuts! wait there is a Halloween set also that I could use.

I LOVE Halloween... I am working on a quilt that will have a checkerboard in the middle, the white squares are glow in the dark fabric and the black squares will have Halloween embroidery done in glow in the dark threads....

I'd be happy to partner up w/ Debbie. I really want to see applique up close. It's one of the things I'm interested in learning more about. Seeing the back side will help me learn more too. :) I also qualify in the tight budget department but a lap quilt won't be a problem.
Debbie, I have neuropathy in my feet from chemo so I have some understanding of what you're going thru though hands would be far worse. I hope your treatment is successful and that you're doing well.
One thing though, I'm a beginner at quilting so while I'll do my best perfection isn't going to happen. I've seen a lot of truly beautiful quilts on this board and I'm just a bit intimidated.

Oh my gracious, do not be intimidated :p everyone is different, with different skills :) I am sure your work is fantastic!

One thing I learned over the years "No one is going to value your work if you do not value it first!" Try not to be too hard on yourself. :hug:

I am so excited :) Just got a new book on quilting for the long arm, and it has some absolutely stunning patterns in it I would love to try out :) Plus trying out the quilting motifs as well. It is great to be able to do something for someone new. :hug:
