Jacquie over at Tallgrass Prarie Studio has issued a challenge to get UFO's finished (unfinished objects aka unfinished quilt projects). I'm all in for this and will post my list of UFO's so you can help me stay focused. Christmas is so close and I have sooooo much to get finished.
You too can join in on the challenge. Just use the link above to pop over to Jacquie's blog and join.
Hopefully a few minutes in between to get a few stitches on my cathedral window quilt. My goal is to get it finished before our quilt show next September.
Happy Quilting Today

For My Love- was made from a collection of charm squares. For years I had participated in charm square exchange at our guild. I decided to do something with the valentines/heart squares. The vase in the middle has a piece of tatting from Charleston SC of a horse drawn carriage. This quilt is always drapped over a white chair in my dinning room every February.
The Fall quilt below is from a round robin type exchange in my guild. I made the log cabin blocks at the top and the FALL words. I also pieced 2 other blocks in the top. I love this top also, it is now drapped over the white chair in my dinning room for fall. It looks great in the same room with the mantle runner.
And now I have to brag a little. My Grand daughter entered her 2nd quilt in the show. It is a 4-patch swirl. She pieced and quilted the entire quilt. She won a Blue Ribbon for her quilt. I'm such a proud grandma.

I've been working on my donation quilt for the Alzheimers Auction. Our guild has a challenge out for you to make a quilt to be donated to the auction. This is what I've been working on this week.
I've been running a lot of names through my mind trying to decide on a name. I then decided to add a tiny block to the escaping ones.
Do you see the tiny pink spinning block trying to escape??
Hence there comes the name of my donation.
Escaping memories. Doesn't that seem fitting for the Alzheimer's auction?
Standing across the room from the top on my design wall you really see the tumbling black falling out of the border.
I kinda think I like what the final product will look like.

Hope you are into a cute giveaway today. Run over to Kim's blog and get in on the cute giveaway she has for one of her Moda Bakeshop bags. It is the Charmed Gift Bag.
http://bittybitsandpieces.blogspot.com/ You'll love it.
I haven't done much quilting this week as work has kept me very busy. I'm almost finished with my blocks for the Halloween Spooktacular with Jane. I popped over and looked at the blocks she has received so far, they are gorgeous! I can't wait to get all of them back. Take a look at Jane's blog and see the blocks....spooky......

My camera is giving me problems so I am not able to post pictures of the projects that I completed this week while on vacation. It has been a very productive week.
I'll post pictures when I get the problem fixed.
But in the mean time, Helen at Hugs and Kisses is having a wonderful giveaway. Check it out at her blog. http://hugsnkisses.typepad.com/hugsfromhelen/
Good luck to everyone,

This is the project that is currently in my machine. It is my gift from my secret sister at quild last year. She made me a fall mantle cover. I love it and hope to have it finished early this morning.
Mom, Susan and I went to Longcreek Mills and Mary Jo's yesterday....we had a blast. Spent lots of money at both places. It is so much fun to travel with friends and fellow quilters.
Better get back to work so I can get something else finished and loaded into the machine.

I will have 9 straight days to quilt, quilt, quilt! Who could ask for more?
My husband is working on the addition to his garage during the week also. We decided instead of spending alot of money going somewhere for our 20th anniversary that we would stay home and do the things that we love.....of course quilting is top of the list for me.
I'll post pictures of my progress through my UFO's for the week. I hope to get many projects finished during those 9 days.
One of the days of my vacation some of my bee friends and I are going to J-Creek Fabrics in Waynesville, NC and on up to Mary Jo's fabrics in Gastonia, NC. An all-day shop-a-thon.
I have so many projects that I want to get quilted so I can enter them into our quilt show Oct 3-4, 2009. I'll post more about the show later. It is going to be great.

Thank you for helping us with research and providing mamograms to those in need.
Please help me by posting on your blog also so we can reach this goal. The lives of so many quilters have been affected by breast cancer. Thank you for your generosity and for passing this on to your blogs.
