    August Virtual Quilt Day - 8/19

    A few people sent me messages asking about August Virtual Quilt Day and I don't think I ever set a date last time!! So in the interest of giving people enough time to prepare, we will be having our Virtual Quilt Day on Sunday, 8/19. Same as awlays, no rules ... just fun!! Pick out a few projects you want to work on, then come back to the forums that Sunday and I will make a brand new thread to post in. Tell us your goals and check in through out the day to tell us how you are doing and see how everyone else is doing too!! I will have the post up early that morning EST, but you are welcome to join in any time of the day.

    So will you be joining us?

    Cheers!
    Rachel

    Oh, good. This Sunday I am driving 60 miles to play bridge. Glad it's next Sunday.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    So glad to know the date. I have the material ready to cut out a quilt on the Virtual Quilting Day. I always accomplish so much more on that special day of the month. Thanks, Rachel, for planning a day that motivates me to quilt for a month at a time!

    I am going to join you this month. I have to start on my Christmas presents or I will never get them all done. I also have a couple UFO's hanging around that I am determined will be finished. My plan is to start cutting fabric for the Christmas presents but I just know that the sewing machine is going to call my name and tell me to start sewing one of them. So it will be a surprise to me and you to see what actually happens! LOL

    Yep! I'm ready! I have changed my plans on what I am going to work on though. I have a quilt that I need to to have finished by Thursday so I will finish that up (unless I get my keester in gear and get it done today!) I will have to go check on MIL dog for a couple of hours in the afternoon so I will see what I get done!

    Aww, I will be traveling much of tomorrow and will miss this month's VQD. The good news is that I gifted two quilts this week that were accomplished because of the last few VQDs so I will be with you in spirit. Hope you all get everything done you are planning to do!

    I'm looking forward to it! Hoping to make tomorrow a "finishing" day. 2 quilts to finish binding &labeling, 2 BOM to catch up on, 2 more quilts to make binding for. And if time permits, a backing to make and load a quilt on the long arm.

    I was wondering if there was a new post, I can't find one. Now that I'm back from church, I'm headed upstairs to start quilting. My goals for the day:

    Finish the bindings on 3 quilts (I machine bind and the front is already done).
    Attach 2 borders to Irish Mist quilt
    Finish quilt top for Accent on Angles quilt
    Finish doll quilt

    I don't know what's happened to Rachel, and I hope she doesn't mind. But I went ahead and opened a new thread for the virtual quilting today. It's over here: Come Quilt with me today - 8/19
