Gwennie Posted: Sun, Nov 6 2011 1:36 AM

My name is Gwennie and I live in a rural area of NSW.  My youngest daughter introduced me to quilting 10 years ago.  Since then I have been an off and on stitcher, teachjng myself from books and magazines.  I jojned QCA back in June and have been reading everyone's posts with interest and thought it was time to add a line. I have a problem with quilts in that I seem to enjoy making tops more than finishing the quilt and consequently have a drawer full of uof's.  All my tops are original designs my head thinks of a new idea before my hands can get a quilt finished.   How many of you out there have this problem 

I am going into hospital tomorrow for a week, so it will be a whlle till I write again,

Hi Gwennie,

Good luck at the hospital. I'll be praying for you. 

I belong to a large quilt group where several women just make the tops. So I formed a small group of ladies who take those tops and finishes them. Our group then turns them back to the larger group to be distributed at the end of the year to various charities. So to answer your question. You are not the only one with the problem. Some women just like the creativity of making the tops and some of us like making them from start to finish. No worries. You can simply find someone who likes to finish them. You can make tops for her and she can finish for you.

Welcome to QCA! Post some photos of your tops. We looooove photos!!!

Welcome Gwennie. I have a lot of unquilted tops as well. Mostly I like starting more than finishing but sometimes I need to wait for inspiration as I'm not always sure what kind of quilting to do on my tops.

Welcome Gwenie and enjoy the site.  Prayers going up for you that all goes well in your hospital stay.  I, like you, love making the tops and have a pile of UFO's.  I'm trying to learn how to quilt so I could finish them.  I used to send the tops out to a long armer but it's just too expensive for me know.  We'd love to see your tops and wish you will post them when you are able.  God Bless

I didn't know that New SOuth Wales was considered Australia. If that is what NSW stands for. I thought it was a whole other Country.

Prayers are being said for your full and complete recovery.

I think all quilters probably have stacks of UFO's. Goes with the territory. I was just thinking last night that I really should learn machine quilting as I can never afford to get all these quilted.  DH says if I stopped quilt today. It would take the ret of our lives to have a LAQ do all these UFO''s.  Looks like there are classes in my future. My DS1 is taking machine quilting classes and she is going up a storm. I wish I could spend lots of time with her and have her teach me. She is a patient. And, being my bgi DS, I love her to pieces.

Gwennie

Welcome to the site.  Hope you enjoy your time with us.  Hope everything goes alright with the hospital visit.   And yes I have a bunch of ufo's that just need me to quilt them.  If I could get someone to sandwich them for me I might actually get them quilted....LOL>

New South Wales (NSW) is a state of Australia & I will add the best state to live in the whole of Australia - that being said I am sure that aussies from other states like Queensland (Qld), Western Australia (WA) etc, who will disagree with me! lol
