    Come Virtually Quilt with me Today - 9/23!!

    Today is the day!! Today I am hosting a Virtual Quilt Day. There are no rules. Basically I started this because I was too lazy to lug my sewing machine to the local quilt store for an all day sew-in. So I decided to have a home sew in with all my friends through the internet!! Join in anytime you can today. All you have to do is come here when you start and tell us your goals, then through out the day check in and let us know how you are doing and leave encouragement for others! That's it!! If you can only join us for half a day, that's fine. If you are in a different time zone, that's fine. This is just a loose and fun thing!! I find it helps me to sew more if I am joined by so many other sewers as well!!

    Okay so here are my goals for the day:

    1. Paint a backdrop for taking pictures of my small projects
    2. Put together at least 5 of my applique pattern blocks
    3. Take pictures of said blocks

    I made my goals pretty easy, so hopefully I'll have no trouble with them. Granted some is not actual quilting, but I have been wanting to make a cool backdrop for my blocks for a while now, so I figure today is a good day for that!!

    So what are your goals for today?

    Cheers!
    Rachel

    I have church, then my twin nieces Christening, but after that, I'm in! I have an iPhone case and an e-reader cover to start/finish, a rag quilt to finish up and some seam ripping I need to do!

    Checking in!! I got my boards painted for my backdrop already. I wanted to make sure it was painted before I started the day so it will hopefully be dry by the time I am ready to take pictures. They are now outside drying. I am taking a little break, then I will get started with the blocks!!

    Cheers!

    Okay, I am in You go, athenagwis, and I thought I was up early at 7am on a Sunday morning! I am planning on sewing a fleece blanket for my DD.....I know not quilt related but I promised I would work on it today. I also want to start on a Halloween themed quilt. I bought the Moda Monster bash jelly roll and want to try the 3 Dudes quilt pattern from Missouri Quilt company. Will check in around noon

    After church and lunch, I'd like to get a baby quilt pin-basted and start on the FMQing.

    Well, I'm awake, full of coffee...

    I wish that was all I had to do today!

    I do need to go to the grocery store (I guess these pets need to eat!) and do another load of laundry (or two).

    I think that's all the "chores" that I have to do. I actually cleaned the bathroom this morning... that was on my to-do list too.

    I should be ready to quilt about an hour after my husband goes to work (not sure of his schedule today... I think he logs in at 10). I got a lot of quilting done yesterday, so I think I can finish quilting that one today and might start binding it and binding a small quilt that has been sitting, waiting patiently on it's binding. I'm actually cheating and just using the backing fabric, so I guess I'm halfway done with the binding?! hahaha
    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!

    I'm still drinking the coffee, but on the plus side. I finished reading the paper,and the dog has been walked. I plan on having a date with the seam ripper, and maybe the scalpel. I started doing a QAYG on a four of the same quilts project, and decided I didn't like the way it was turning out on the first one(mine). I want to try a different method to see if it looks better. I'm having a positive attitude to start. Hopefully I will remain in this frame of mind.
    To all my Christian friends. Have a blessed day. To my Jewish friends. Pray for forgiveness, as Yom Kippur is on Wednesday.
