    So today looks like its going to be a snow/sew day here. We are having some crappy weather with snow, high winds, and just an overall icky yuky Sunday. I am planning to make this a sew/quilt day.

    I'm just curious to see if anyone else out there is planning a sew/quilting day like me and what will you be working on?

    I plan to finish hand quilting a Spring Quilt I'm working on. The bright colours will perk me up when the weather outside is so gross. I also plan to finish basting and start machine quilting a courthouse steps quilt this afternoon.

    Love to hear who will be joining me in sew/quilt day today??? :)

    Cheers
    Andrea

    I plan on making some red, white and blue squares for our groups quilts for wounded warriors.
    Weather wise I should be outside. It is perfect weather this time of year in Phoenix AZ. It hits the high 70,s so very nice.
    But when the quilting bug hits weather dosnt matter.

    I am doing some applique work today. Although not quilting, I am making kitchen towels with an Irish flair. Using white terry fabric, I will add shamrocks using applique method and then lace edges. :)

    We are suppose to get a bit of sun today so later I will go for a ride on the ATV with my DH. After it warms up a bit! Just frosty out right now.

    For now I am working on my BOM for my group that meets in just over a week. I have to get 3 blocks finished for that. Then take the charity quilt off the frame and bind it so I can take it to the quild meeting. I have to make 4 blocks for the Kalidoscope of Kolor quilt (that groups meets in 2 weeks) And I joined a month late so I need to do block # 1 too. I still need to bind the baby quilt I made. Baby is due in May, so there is time on that one.

    Sounded fun till I wrote it all out. Now it sounds a bit overwhelming!
    Put up shelves and organized my quilting room. I got behind on the projects, but the room is so much easier to work in now! :D

    Working on a Log Cabin UFO, BOM (done!), laundry (maybe...), exercise (big maybe!), and hoping to catch the 2 pm Cathedral Windows class.

    I'm hoping to sit in on the cathedral windows class. Also will make a final decision on how to quilt that New Years Day quilt and maybe even get that started! Perhaps do a few more hand quilting stitches on the cat quilt.

    We've got some 'milky' sunshine so far. Woke up to lots of frost so it's brisk outside!

    I'm hoping to get a baby quilt for bf's first granddaughter sandwiched and quilted today. It's kindof windy here, so don't plan to be outside much.

    I'm playing on the computer before I go & put the binding on a patriotic donation quilt that will be raffled to help pay for packages to be sent to the troops. My friend Sherrie & I have been working on this as a team effort. She has an embroidery machine & I have a quilting table so it's been a joint effort. I'll post a photo when it's done. We got the pattern from a 2008 quilting calandar & adjusted some of the blocks to add a neat embroidered eagle pattern in one of our blocks. My DH is out burning the burn piles & enjoying a break in the weather. I'm enjoying the light coming through the window!! LOL

    I just finished the top of that sampler quilt. Finally done! I'll get it put together over Easter break when I get into the school and can spread out three or four quilts and get them all pinned.

    And speaking of school! I just finished term two reports! YAHOOOOO! That makes me that much closer to retirement in June!!!!

    I'll post pics of the quilt top later. :wink:

    I went with my daughter to the Senior Center to lay out two quilts and helped her put the binding on them. she got them on by machine and now will take them home to finish hand sewing them to the back of the quilt. I also measured and pinned two borders on my latest Red White and Blue quilt. So got a lot done while Dh stayed home and cooked dinner. Marge

    I have just cut out 25 hearts in 3 different sizes for my raggedy heart sofa quilt in yellow and blue. I still need 31 more as it will be an 8" block and will need 56 blocks. Sat down for about 30 minutes to read and now getting ready to go to 5:30 church service. I usually go at 7:30 AM service but was lazy this morning and now I have to go tonight.

    I spent part of the morning sewing quilt blocks, before I went to get my hair cut. I am at work now, but will quit soon and head home. I am going to finish binding the quilt for Brian's baby (due in two weeks) tonight. I will give it to him tomorrow, so I have to finish it tonight.

    I have only 1 more side to finish binding on my monkey/balloon quilt, so will get that done today. Also plan to sew the final border on my 1st split nine patch quilt that I made last Thurs. night. I have to figure out how I'm going to quilt that too.

    In between all that I'm nursing my DH...down with the flu (I think)...Dr.'s office visit tomorrow :-(

    Between loads of laundry, I started working on a nine-patch baby quilt for my grandbaby due in June. Already finished a rail fence baby quilt for my other grandbaby due also in June. Babies, babies everywhere!! Also, thinking about an idea for a quilt for my 2-year-old grandsons birthday in May. I already made one for the 4-year-old. Would somebody take over my house payments so I can stay home and quilt?! :lol: :lol:

    I just finished quilting my Quilt of Valor for the week. All I have to do is bind and attach the label. This is my 33rd QOV. It will be going to Lundstuhl, Germany tomorrow.

    No quilting today.. Spent the day with my 3 year old granddaughter, just being Gram to her and making her feel special. Lots of laundry done and started chasing the bunny on the fab hop.
