UFOs: List and Analyze

This is Part 1 of an informal series on UFOs (UnFinished Objects). Most of us have them. Some of us are plagued by them. Almost everyone would prefer to have fewer of them.

TACKLE YOUR UFOs

So where do you start when it’s time to tackle your UFOs? I started by making a list. (The photos are my actual UFOs.)

ufo444 UFOs: List and Analyze

I put every project I could think of on the list. As I found forgotten projects in drawers, bins and baskets (sad but true), I added them to the list. This is an ongoing process and it’s fine if it takes you several weeks or months to get the list mostly complete.

 

ufo555 UFOs: List and Analyze

A word of caution: Don’t be overwhelmed by the list. It’s just a tool. You have the list—the list doesn’t have you!

Beginning with just one or two UFOs on the list, ask yourself why each became a UFO. Some of the possibilities:

• Not enough time to sew
• Technique: too hard, can’t remember it, didn’t understand it
• No longer have (or never did have) all the supplies
• Didn’t enjoy the project

ufo66 UFOs: List and Analyze

• Lost interest
• Bored with the project
• Dislike how it looks
• Dislike the technique

• Ugly fabrics or colors
• You ran out of fabric

ufo777 UFOs: List and Analyze

• It’s not turning out the way you thought it would
• You dislike the actual quilting—piecing is more fun for you!
• “Quilting is too difficult on my machine.”
• “My machine quilting isn’t good enough.”

ufo888 UFOs: List and Analyze

• You’re stumped by how to quilt it
• You got sidetracked with more interesting new projects
• You hate applying binding
• Some other kind of trouble
You may have other reasons why projects become UFOs. If so, tell us about them in the comments below. During the series we’ll address as many of them as possible.

That’s it for today—hopefully you’ve started thinking about what UFOs you have and why they remain unfinished. In the next part we’ll brainstorm for solutions so get fired up! Prepare to finish!!

UFO: UnFinished Object

UFO

Let’s talk about UFOs. (That’s quiltspeak for UnFinished Object; in other words, a quilt project you started but never finished.) Several years ago, the committee for QuiltNebraska (a statewide summer event) had an idea: offer a class on UFOs.  They put out a call for someone to teach it, and I thought it sounded like fun.

sewroom UFO: UnFinished Object

My studio as I sorted through UFOs.

I know a lot about UFOs (see the photo above). I mean, I’m practically an expert.

I was hired.

ufo111 UFO: UnFinished Object

One of my many UFOs

At first I thought folks would just come and sew mostly on their own. But I soon realized that UFOs are unfinished for a reason. People usually need some kind of help or motivation to get going again.

 

ufo222 UFO: UnFinished Object

Another of my UFOs

And so I developed my UFO “curriculum.” Now I teach UFO classes regularly—and they are so much fun! Over the next few days I’ll share the handouts with you, one at a time.

 

One thing that surprises me in these classes is how much everyone learns from other people’s UFOs. You don’t just get going on your own project, you also see, hear and experience how problems are solved on other pieces. The learning meter hits the red zone!

chart example 7 UFO: UnFinished Object

Another wonderful surprise for me is how much I learn from teaching this way. Put someone in a room with 20 quilters who all have obstacles to overcome—and wow, they learn to think fast.

brain fitness UFO: UnFinished Object

I have to be creative all day long and it’s really good for my brain. I am totally pumped by the end of class and I’ll often go home and sew for several hours on adrenaline.

 

 

ufo333 UFO: UnFinished Object

I could never forget a UFO like this!

Surprise #3: Because I work closely with every student and her project, I make associations that stay with me for a long time. If I see someone three years later, I may not remember her last name, but it’s likely I’ll remember her UFO. So we’ve built this little UFO community—and who doesn’t like community?!

Tomorrow we’ll get going with Part 1 of the UFO handouts.

Are you interested in finishing up some UFOs? Tell everyone about one you’d like to complete in the comments below. Leaving a comment might be just the motivation you need to get started—with finishing!

Walkabout Retreat and History Center

A small Pine Burr quilt on display at Walkabout Retreat and History Center

A few weeks ago I drove the six hours south to Baldwin City in Douglas County, Kansas for a class on making Pine Burr quilts with Jean Ayres.

On the right, a map of Kansas showing Douglas County; on the left, a map of Baldwin City's place in Douglas County.

 

Jean was delightful and the class was fun and informative, but what was a complete surprise was the facility tucked away in the countryside not far from Lawrence.

Walkabout Retreat and History Center

It’s called the Walkabout Retreat and History Center. It’s a beautiful place. Jean Ayres is a co-director with the property’s owner, Judy Long O’Neal.

The Pine Burr class on June 30 marked the official opening of the center. It was so much fun!

 

lodge Walkabout Retreat and History Center

Walkabout Retreat and History Center near Baldwin City, Kansas

The highlights for me were these:

• There are quilts everywhere.

quilts1 Walkabout Retreat and History Center

There are little and large quilts, old and new quilts, pristine and shaggy quilts.

 

quilts2 Walkabout Retreat and History Center

Quilts on the beds at Walkabout Retreat and History Center

There are just a lot of quilts to enjoy!

quilts3 Walkabout Retreat and History Center

This small quilt is "Angst" by Jean Ayres.

 

• It’s no accident that “history center” is part of the name they chose—these gals are history buffs. As we enjoyed a tour of the property, both women talked knowledgeably about the property’s history and its place on the Underground Railroad.

 

quilts4 Walkabout Retreat and History Center

This quilt depicts some of the history of the area and its role in the Underground Railroad.

Several quilts on display, including the one above, depict stories and contain symbols related to this history.

 

lodge2 Walkabout Retreat and History Center

The loft is a perfect place to read or relax.

• “Retreat” would be an understatement for this place. It’s quiet and beautiful and soulful. I am very anxious to return and spend some time there.

 

quilts5 Walkabout Retreat and History Center

This quilt depicts the "interfaith dialogue" co-director Judy Long O'Neal is so passionate about.

• Judy has an interest in “interfaith dialogue.” This means there’s an expressed respect for all faiths and for the spiritual journeys of all who come here.

 

lodge3 Walkabout Retreat and History Center

The classroom is bright and spacious at Walkabout Retreat and History Center.

Judy and Jean anticipate that some people will retreat to the Walkabout for creative adventures (especially quilt related), some for spiritual searches, some simply to rest—and all of that is okay in their view. Quilters and others are invited to use the facilities for daytime events or for overnight functions.

The space is available by reservation only. It can be reserved for a group or an individual with or without planned programming. A 25% non-refundable deposit is required to hold a reservation. The Center provides coffee, tea, bottled water, towels and linens.

 

pond Walkabout Retreat and History Center

The prices are reasonable. As an example, the charge for overnight groups of four or more is $55 per person. Join an existing sleep-over group to sew for the day for just $15 per person (breakfast is $5 more). The property sleeps 8. There are two meadow labyrinths and a pond.

My six-hour drive was well worth it. If you’re in the Midwest or would care to travel here, do consider the Walkabout Retreat and History Center. I think you’ll love it.

For more information or to make a reservation, please contact Judy (judylongoneal@gmail.com) or Jean (ayresjean@gmail.com) by email or visit the Center’s Facebook page.

QM Scrap Squad: Bonnie’s Old Glory

QM scrap squadB3 QM Scrap Squad: Bonnies Old GloryThe QM Scrap Squad is a select group of seven QM readers. They take one pattern from each regular issue of Quiltmaker and make their own scrappy versions to inspire you.

 

QMMP 120800 PATRIOT flat QM Scrap Squad: Bonnies Old Glory

Old Glory by Margie Ullery appears in the July/August '12 issue of Quiltmaker.

The Scrap Squad project from the July/August issue of Quiltmaker is Old Glory, designed and made by Margie Ullery of Ribbon Candy Quilt Company.

 

BonnieStapleton1 QM Scrap Squad: Bonnies Old Glory

Bonnie Stapleton

Today’s featured quilt is by Bonnie Stapleton from Powhatan, Virginia. She blogs at institcheswithbonnie. You’ll hear from Bonnie in her own words below.

*     *     *     *     *

When the Scrap Squad received the Old Glory pattern, we were encouraged to think of other motifs to sprinkle across the quilt. I came up with 19 ideas.

In the end, owls trumped all the other ideas because I have a new grandbaby on the way.

Several months ago, I was on a visit to see my daughter Jenny. She had just done some stenciling on the wall of the new baby’s room. I snagged her paint chips to use as my color choices.

PaintChip 1024x611 QM Scrap Squad: Bonnies Old Glory

Um, really? Lime green, mango orange and blue? I went shopping and I was tickled to find fabric that matched the paint chips. Of course, three fabrics weren’t enough so I did some stash diving once I got home.

Hawaiian fabric 225x300 QM Scrap Squad: Bonnies Old Glory

This orange fabric came from Hawaii where Jenny and her husband, Brian, honeymooned. I was given the fabric with instructions to use it in a quilt for a grandbaby.

I got going on this quilt—except I didn’t want my owls to tumble gracefully across it—I wanted them grounded. Real owls perch on tree branches, right?

I added the brown for branches with diagonal seams.

I sewed and ripped several times because I didn’t like the distance between the branches.Later I realized how much blue there is in the top of the quilt. Maybe that is a bit of sky? And yikes—those dots are a bit wonky—but it’s all okay on the final quilt.

Piecing the Center 836x1024 QM Scrap Squad: Bonnies Old Glory

When Quiltmaker sent me the owl pattern, I made two reduced copies and one enlarged copy. I worked with 115%, 100%, 85% and 75% of the main owl design.

 

Pressing sheet 300x213 QM Scrap Squad: Bonnies Old GloryTrimming Adhesive 300x225 QM Scrap Squad: Bonnies Old Glory
I didn’t want the appliques to be stiff so I trimmed out the center of the fusible web before ironing it on. I used an applique pressing sheet to build my owls.

After building several, I decided their eyes could be looking somewhere instead of directly ahead.

My owls1 1024x762 QM Scrap Squad: Bonnies Old Glory

I started placing the owls on the branches. But, honestly, would this many owls all be just sitting around on branches?  I don’t think so! Several have decided to fly off the branches.

I decided this could also be a counting quilt. The first branch has one owl sitting on it, the second has two owls sitting and flitting, and so on—until there are five owls on the last branch.

And, I couldn’t just plop them straight on the branches…some are moving around.

To keep the quilt soft, I used a water soluble stabilizer for stitching the owl parts.

7 owl parts x 15 owls = a lot of stitching!

After stitching, I trimmed the excess stabilizer off; the rest should wash out.

Placing my owls1 793x1024 QM Scrap Squad: Bonnies Old Glory

 

At one point while constructing the background, I decided I needed more of a particular strip color and width, so my quilt ended up being slightly larger than the size given.

What I didn’t think about was what a slightly larger quilt top would do to the pieced outer border. I had cut most of the pieces before I really looked at the border—and figured out where I could “fudge” my measurement to make it fit.

This border is easy to fudge: I adjusted the “F” and “G” pieces. I also marked and matched the half and quarter points of the quilt top and the border. One side was slightly longer than the border so I sewed with that side on the bottom, against the feed dogs, to help ease in the fullness.

Total Owls 860x1024 QM Scrap Squad: Bonnies Old GlorySeveral months have gone by since we got the Old Glory pattern. I am now at Jenny’s house waiting for my new grandbaby to make his or her appearance.

I’ve applied the binding here while on “baby watch.” I couldn’t resist taking a photo of the quilt draped on the crib with the stenciled walls.

sneakpeak in the nursery 1024x768 QM Scrap Squad: Bonnies Old Glory

 

These owls are just ridiculously cute! Please join me in wishing Bonnie, Jenny and their whole family the best as they wait for this new baby. Hoo-hoo do you suppose it will be?!?

A recent box from the folks at Kansas City Star Quilts was filled with treasures: books I have thoroughly enjoyed reading. You’ll want to take a look at today’s featured title.

 

1334768519 AwayFromHomeFrontCov300 KC Star Book Reviews

Nancy and Oliver Rink have put together a keeper in Away from Home: Quilts Inspired by the Lowell Factory Girls. I first read it cover to cover because the history is that interesting (Oliver is a history buff and retired professor of history at California State University-Bakersfield).

Then I went back through the book to admire and study the quilts.

QM Scrap Squad: Cathy’s “Autumn Glory”

The QM Scrap Squad is a select group of seven QM readers. They take one pattern from each regular issue of Quiltmaker and make their own scrappy versions to inspire you.

QM scrap squadB3 QM Scrap Squad: Cathys Autumn Glory

The Scrap Squad project from the July/August issue of Quiltmaker is Old Glory, designed and made by Margie Ullery of Ribbon Candy Quilt Company.

QMMP 120800 PATRIOT flat QM Scrap Squad: Cathys Autumn Glory

Old Glory, designed and made by Margie Ullery; appears in Quiltmaker July/August '12

Today’s featured quilt is by Cathy Buel from Clinton Township, Michigan. You’ll hear from Cathy in her own words below.

 

CathyBuel1 QM Scrap Squad: Cathys Autumn Glory

Cathy Buel from Clinton Township, Michigan

*     *     *     *     *

I liked this quilt the moment I saw it. When we were asked to consider what else might be sprinkled across the quilt, my wheels were spinning. My favorite time of year is Autumn. I love the changing colors of the leaves and pumpkins.

I just happened to have a Bali Pop in Autumn colors. The original quilt called for 1″, 2″ and 3″ strips. I wasn’t able to do that since Bali Pops are 2″ wide.  So I used enough of the 2″ strips to equal the size of the original quilt.

DSCF2496 1024x768 QM Scrap Squad: Cathys Autumn Glory

Because of the size of the quilt it was easier to put it up on my design wall sideways.  By the way, my design wall was very inexpensive. I bought two flannel-backed tablecloths, sewed them together lengthwise and have them thumb-tacked to my wall.

Basic Drawing1 959x1024 QM Scrap Squad: Cathys Autumn Glory

Next was to draw my leaf. After I came up with the drawing I enlarged it 130% for the small leaf and 150% for the large leaf. I also drew a pumpkin, pumpkin leaf and stem. Please help yourself to the free applique patterns for all the different versions of Old Glory, including mine.

Patriotic Quilt 761x1024 QM Scrap Squad: Cathys Autumn Glory

I drew my patterns onto template plastic and then traced the designs onto my leaf and pumpkin fabric. I played around with the placement until I was happy.

Basting 1024x768 QM Scrap Squad: Cathys Autumn Glory

I hand appliqued my leaves and pumpkins. It takes a little longer but I find it very relaxing. I turn my edges using a toothpick. I find that a toothpick hugs the fabric better than if I was using the needle to turn the fabric.

I started auditioning fabrics for the border. Since my quilt is rather dark to begin with black just didn’t work. I ended up not using an inner border and just used the outer border design for my quilt. It took a little math work to get it to fit properly since I left off the inner border.

Leaves 1024x768 QM Scrap Squad: Cathys Autumn Glory

I machine quilted in the ditch throughout the quilt. I hand quilted around the leaves and pumpkin.

pumpkin 768x1024 QM Scrap Squad: Cathys Autumn Glory

I also added a little embroidery embellishment to the pumpkin.

my quilt 768x1024 QM Scrap Squad: Cathys Autumn Glory

Here is my completed quilt. I won’t have it for long as my youngest daughter has already laid claim to it. I hope you enjoyed my journey and will stay tuned for the other Scrap Squad versions.

Hugs, Cathy

Another nice job, with hand applique no less, by this Scrap Squad member. Remember that the free applique patterns for all of the Scrap Squad versions are there for the taking courtesy of Quiltmaker. More renditions of Old Glory coming in the days ahead!
