Size:  528.9 KBFinally, I'm going to ring the bell for myself. I have had this UFO for a long time. Just needed to put the binding on it, but didn't know who it was a gift for. So finished it up today and it will find a new home in CA tomorrow night. I can't wait for them to see it. The photo doesn't do it justice - it turned out beautiful.

    I have not posted on this thread yet.

    I am new to quilting, having only made a few rag quilts before this summer. But when I found someone's UFO at a thrift shop 2 years ago I bought it.

    It was for a red and brown, black and blue and yellow and black plaid rag quilt. It had large blocks and smaller ones to make 4 patches. Some of the sandwiches were made and stitched together. The person had FMQ inspirational words on the completed sandwiches. Then there were lots of blocks cut, but not sandwiched.

    I would take out the blocks and play with them, then put them away again.

    One of the problems with the original blocks is that they were not square or really equal in size.

    Yesterday, I took them out to tackle again. I am doing a Secret Santa and my recipient had pets. My dog Oscar loves his rag quilt. So I thought instead of trying to use all the blocks, I just pulled out the ones that were already sandwiched. I decided on a good size for the blocks (large and small) and got out my cutting mat, rotary cutter and 12.5 inch square ruler.

    I was able to make two 24X36 inch quilts for my SS pets. I will have to wait until Tuesday night to post photos, when the camera is home again. I hope her pets like them.

    8 yeaqr old baby blanket

    Thank you for the encouragement.

    I am on a roll, last night I decided at 8:30 that instead of watching the Voice, I would make a rag baby blanket.

    I bought the fabric to make a blanket for Dh's cousin's baby. The baby is 8 now. I had cut most the strips, and doubled some with batting. I have no idea where the rest of the batting went.

    It took me until 1:00 am to get the fabric cut ( I ripped the long strips), then cut into 5" squares, doubled (no batting), sewn, then the dreaded snipping. I am so glad I invested in spring loaded snippers.

    It is going through the second wash cycle right now. I will get dh to take photos tonight, before I take it to the shower.

    My sewing Mojo is back!

    Ooooh I have that pattern and I bought materials for it. I was going to make this pattern out of Hawaiian barkcloth. I need to dig it up once I am finnished with all my swaps.

    You did a great job. It looks very pretty.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Thank you ladies. I sure liked it and got another one out of the pile. I did just add the owl for a focal point. Been getting those little ones done but the big ones are still in stages. I am working on my presentation for the quilt show on Sunday. Yep I get to speak on quilting process. I am thrilled and yet nervous. So much info and steps go into the process. One does not think about it, you just do. I am on the last section, Design, so that one is going to take up some time and I only have one hour to dump all this on them. I pray it works out correct. I am a talker so that part does not bother me, it is having all the info in my brain come out correctly in delivery. That is the part that is intimidating. Well, to finish the show.

    On my UFOs, I am hoping next week to finish them all up. I will be moving along quickly. Just getting the borders done is the challenge. Yes, anal me wants to do 3" 9 patches for one of the quilts so that is consuming. I have to dig out the design wall again and get a top on it to piece. I have one waiting on binding, two ready to quilt, two with just the borders waiting on, then strips and borders for a bargello which is laid out, then to finish piecing blocks for three of them. I do have one I just need to lay out the blocks with the fabric to get them done. Trying to figure out how to keep it down to just 60" wide so I can use the minkie she wants for the backing. Yep, lots to do in just 10 days, but God is good and I will move forward for sure. I am working on the wall hanging swap also which is hand embroidery and have 1 block done, 1 almost done, and two half done. Whew, I am tired of looking at what I need to get done, going to get r done now.

    UFO for Relay for Life

    Ok, I have been so busy with other things in life and I have decided to complete some of my UFO's. Here is the 1st one I have completed. I donated it to the local hospital for their Relay for Life team to raffle off. The they have one more week to sell tickets and then they will raffle it to some lucky winner.
