Working Quilter

I envy those hand quilters.  You can take your quilting along with you were every you go, even when you are hand piecing your blocks.  I work for the government, so I really cannot put my sewing machine on my back (or roll it) to work and sew.  By the time I get home I just want to fall into bed.  My weekends are going to quilt meetings, church meetings and  grocery shopping.  Only time I get to quilt is when I go to my quilting bee or I really need to get a quilt done on a deadline.  While I am going to learn how to hand quilt.  I think a but a sandwich together and teach my self and stitching.

So with that said, I miss placed my UFO I pulled it out last week to do.  I have others, but I really wanted to do that one since it has been in the box since I first started quilting.  So I am off to look for this missing UFO.  It has to be somewhere in the house.  It was sitting on the dinning room table all week, and now I can not find it.  Do you thing the Quilting Fairy took it so I could start on something new?  Yah, there is a Quilting Fairy, she is the one who finish your quilts, when you cannot remember that you did it yourself.  O.K., O.K. can can fantasize can’t I.

Looking for UFO
The Slow Quilter


  1. I started quilting as a handquilter. I hand sewed 2 double size quilts riding on the Metro every morning from Alexandria to Silver Spring. At the end of a year, the regular riders would gather around me to watch me sew and to check my progress. I love it, although I am into instant gratification. While all of my current quilts are machine quilted, I plan to take refresher course at the quiltfest in Hampton at the end of the month. I am really looking forward to that. So enjoy and have fun with it!
