Did I say "Year of the UFO"?

Posted on September 24, 2010 at 4:30am 5 Comments

I know in January, I said this would be the year dedicated to completing UFOs. I made some progress in the first half of the year, but have been sucked into the "gotta start something new" mindset again. In my defense:

  • Much of my recent activity is in preparation for a craft fair our guild is having in November. I've been making sweatshirt jackets, placemats, wall hangings, crocheted CD coasters, etc. Photos will be uploaded later when they are available.

Hi Donna,

Thanks so much for your comments - the sunflower convergence is a favorite of mine as well.

I don't know when I'll get to TQS quilt. I'm really trying hard to clean up some UFOs before I even look at my kits. I don't have too many - but still - should finish what's started. At least that's my plan for this year!

It is interesting to me that you have problems with the sticks being in the way.  Do you have the clamps on elastic or just the velcro?  I need to look into the bars and table upgrade.  If there is one thing I dislike about my system is that the table, I bought the one that was to go with my HQ16, is not level, so it is hard to do SID.  Guess I better go to their web site and see what they have.

Hi Donna,

I just saw your posting of April 3rd on the Long Arm Quilters Group.  I too have a HQ16 and dearly love it.  For the longest time I struggled with the extender getting caught on the clamp, but what I was shown is that if you take a dowl long enough to put under the elastic from front bar to the back bar it will hold the clamp up and out of the way.  If you want me to send you a photo of it I would, just let me know.

Do you use your HQ16 for a business or just for your own quilts?  I have a very busy quilting business, which I keep thinking I would like to upgrade my machine, but I just love the one I have so until it gives up I will not try anything else.

Your quilts are beautiful, have an awesome day.

Hi Donna:  Thanks for the Paper Piece Idea.  I've been thinking about that for a while.

I am just glad you got them.  I know they are not show stoppers but I have never worked with "strings"  so I put some of what I had on hand together.  I hope you enjoy them. Hope work lets up soon so you can get some "therapy", sewing time:-)
