Working on UFO today.  I got to quilt some for ME!!  This is Galaxy Star, king size.  Its been sitting for several years.  Lost track of time.  I am quilting with black thread.  Tried several thing, but just took away from all of the color.  The back is shades of gold with stars.  Very appropriate. I love the border fabric, too.  DS came in while I was working on it and said, "who's that one for, not me I hope, it ugly". I told him its for me and he looked very relieved.  Almost finished, but will have to wait for tomorrow.

UFO's, unfinished objects, for the unquilty out there.  Greater Columbia Quilt Guild, of which I am a member, has issued a UFO challenge for 2011.  You say, what is that jumble of a mess in the picture.  UFO's.  Here are some stacked up to be quilted.  There are a few others also, 14 that I found.  I am sure there is more hiding in there. LOL.  I am going to add a list to my side bar and cross them off as I go.  Hopefully I will get these done.  There are a few king sized ones.  The one on top on the right is my Galaxy Star, OH my!  Anita said I had to have it finished by Spring Meeting.  It is KING.  I better get started.  Wish me luck. 

Happy Quilting,

I am here

Ok,  I am still alive.  Nancy reminded me I havent updated my blog in awhile. Soooo.  I have had a cold/sinus thing going, cant seem to shake it.  Been trying to catch up on customer quilts, getting close.  Went yesterday to our new longarm group in Columbia.  This was our 2nd get together.  If you are from the middle of SC and have rails,  you are welcome to join us.  We are sharing and learning from each other.  A great group. 

RRCB!!!  I am still working on Bonnie Hunters mystery quilt.  Putting the hst around the blocks, have about half finished.  So, I am a turtle.  It will get done, when it gets done.  I am enjoying the process.

We have a new quilt shop in town.  The only one!  Now I can buy a spool of thread, or anyother need without driving to Columbia, 45 miles away.  They have asked me to teach some beginner quilting, so I am going to teach a sampler class to start with.  I have used this for several beginner classes in the past.  It will get me out of the house some.

Sorry, no pictures at this time.  Will try to take some of my RRCB later today, so you can see the progress.

Happy Quilting,
