Default Come Virtually Quilt with me Today - 5/20

The day is finally here!! Let's get out butts in gear and sew! You do not have to do anything to join me, you just have to jump in and sew! Here are the "rules":

I have always wanted to go to those all day sews at a LQS store, but not knowing anyone and having to drag my machine around has always stopped me, so I decided to do the same thing with my virtual friends. I can sew in my PJs, leave my machine where it is, and still get the encouragement I need to get some much needed projects done. So come and join me today!!

The rules couldn't be any easier. Tell us what your goals are for today, then get off the computer and sew! hehe Of course every hour or couple of hours, be sure to check in and let us know how you are proceeding, share pics and offer up encouragement to others.

So let's get to it! My goals for today are:

1. Sew at least one block in my "Alice" quilt
2. Sew at least 10 block in my solids quilt
3. Work on a WIP that hasn't been touched in a while

So what are your goals?

Remember, you can join us at any point today, so even if you have plans for half the day, we are happy to offer encouragement for the time you can join us. Pictures are optional, but we love seeing what you are working on!! but most of all, you must have fun! If you are not having fun, you are not allowed to join us.

Good Morning Rachel,

I'll join you in between taking care of 8 dogs while my husband is out fishing.
1. Finish the borders on my dog wallhangings...4 of them. And maybe baste them for quilting.
2. Hand sew the binding to my Winter Waterfall wallhanging.
3. Start quilting my sheep.

Whew, I'm worn out already and I haven't even fed the dogs yet or gotten started on my goals.

Good morning Rachel. I can't believe I slept in till 6:30. Usually up at 5:30. The coffee's on, now I'm ready. I pulled out one of the last UFOs, its a red and white basket. Now to figure what the heck I intended. No card like I've sworn to make for every project. Sometime today I also intend to learn to post a picture. Now to go measure and scratch my head. Don't even know what size it was supposed to be but all the baskets are halfway pieced. So glad we are doing this. Stella

I have a small goal - make the label for a wedding quilt. The rest of the day will be more renovations at the new house.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

First I have to drop my DD off at a school event, then it is home to sew a bow tuck purse for one of my other DD's. After that I want to cut out the p ieces for my grandsons quilt, and begin piecing it..Hopefully I can get the top done today, so i can begin hand quilting it tomorrow!!

Well I have fed the hens, dog and ponies, walked along the shore. I have just finished the centre block in a quilt I am making for my new future daughter in law, she chose reds, greys and turquoise. I bought some fabrics locally and I have ordered some from Fabric Shack, I am doing a star quilt, with different size blocks and different stars. I was going to do a wedding ring but could not sort it with those colours, maybe I will do a wedding ring later when they have set a date.

Good morning all. I have a couple UFO/WIP that I would like to finish today. If I get those done, then I will start cutting the strip sets into squares for the queen sized log cabin quilt I'm making. However, I won't be able to start all that until I get back home from church. So I'll check in with you all later!

I've been in a virtual pajama party at QCA since Friday. I made my first jelly roll top, completed a patriotic top for my DH and made a machine cover!! I am a new quilter so this is an amazing task for me. Here in a few minutes I will put the last stitches in the machine cover and head to the grocery store. I plan to baste and start quilting the throw for my DH. I will post pics of this weekends accomplishments later. Have fun!

I want to walk along the shore!!! Don't want to feed hens, dogs, and ponies....but walking around the shore...YUP!!!!

Anywho - my goal is to finish quilting the outer border on the lap throw for the choir director at church. I'm a bit over 1/3 done, maybe half way done. Our dinner is Thurs. I think I can do it -IF i don't hang on the 'puter!.....

I am going to put aside my to do list...

Make my first bag. Just printed the pattern yesterday and picked up the necessary materials. Crossing my fingers that it comes out okay because this is going to be very challenging for me but I am going for it. I will post pix at the end of the day.
