Quilt With Us

UFO Block Swap #2 February 2013


UFO Block Swap  #2  February 2013

do you have any UFO blocks? come on, I know you do... don't feel bad - join this swap

you will send a UFO block to another swap member who will finish it for you (their choice of finish - it could be a pillow cover, wall hanging, mug rug etc.)  and send it back to you - check one UFO off your list!

you can still join if you do not have a UFO block - many of us will have extras we can give you LOL - let me know if you have a block and if you have ones to spare

I need your name and whether you have UFO blocks to share or not

new deadline to sign up is February 1, 2013

Swap Stuff!

  • you are to have your unfinished block in the mail to your partner by February 15, 2013 (is that enough time for you to find it?? LOL - you know it's there somewhere)
  • it should be a block 12 inches square or less
  • it can be a block that you were going to use for a full quilt but never finished - it can be a traditional block or an art piece
  • the block itself should be finished in its entirety (not sandwiched or bound though) so that all the person who receives it has to do is decide how to finish it
  • those of you on the receiving end of the block decide what to do with it - anything goes but you must finish the project and post it  by April 15, 2013 - you could just quilt and bind it; or you could applique on it, or thread sketch; make it bigger, change the shape; make a pillow cover, wallhanging, potholder, mug rug - you decide!  I just want us all to get a completed piece back, however big or small.

if I have left anything out or there are any questions, please ask 

please save a picture of the block you send and the completed one you receive and forward to me when all is done so I can create an album and hopefully have more people the next time Signed up so far:

I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.

Oh Diane, I'm so sorry to hear that your mom is in the hospital. I will keep her AND your family in our prayers. Wish I were there to wrap you both in a quilty hug. Please give your mom my best and tell her we hope she is soon back on her feet and feeling as spry as ever.

Sew glad you liked it, Terri - I am currently in the hospital with my mom who fractured her hip in a fall last week so I am not sure how our Christmas will be - but she is doing well so far
All the best to you and yours as well! :-)

Had a wonderful surprise waiting for me when I returned from having my car serviced this afternoon. My UFO block appeared and is a UFO no longer. Diane you did a beautiful job turning my lowly block in to a beautiful purse/tote. It is just the right size for carrying small sewing and/or crochet projects with me when I have doctor appointments or getting the car serviced or ...or ....

Well, you get the general idea. It is absolutely beautiful and I LOVE the fabrics you used.

Thank you so much for such a beautiful gift. Oh, and thanks also for the note cards. Will definitely be put to use.

Merry Christmas and all the best to you dear lady.

Don't worry about it Diane, I know how life can get in the way. I am looking forward to seeing it when it arrives.

Hope you have a fantastic Thanksgiving!

Do we have a Smile Box for the UFOs? Would love to see what's been done.

Comment by Lisa F. ptracker on November 10, 2013 at 4:39pm

hi ladies. wow I totally forgot Sandy thanks for reminding me. I know exactly where it is . well going to go fabric shopping this coming weekend so I will get what I need to finish it up and then will whisk it off to you. although there is no rush on finishing mine. so don't worry about it. take your time and let your mind roll with it.. LOL

I have so many projects I am working on here. I to space things out I make for my family. well I see the holidays are coming up faster than I want them to and there is not enough hours to finish things I want to do. does anyone else run into that problem I hope I am not the only one that thinks that way.

well hope everyone has a nice evening big hugs to all

keep warm and snuggly

Are there pictures of all the finished blocks? Would love to see what everyone did.

Will be glad when my new sewing room is organized and I can begin creating once again. My DH has a bet that I won't fit all that was in my 18' x 26' studio into my 12x12 room. He forgets that all that was in the studio originally was in a 12' x 24' sunroom. LOL.

Wishing everyone the best! Will check in more later. If we do another swap, count me in!
