Default Come Virtually Quilt with me Today - 6/24

Today's the day!! I am posting this early because we went to a drive in movie tonight and I rolled in at 2:00 AM EST and figured I'll probably sleep in. So when y'all wake up be sure to give us a list of your goals and give us a pic of your sewing room too if you are so inclined. I thought it would be fun to see where everyone sews from!! No need to clean up for us, it makes us feel better if your room isn't perfect.

I only have only goal for today:

1. Work on Geese in the Forest Quilt

Hopefully I can accomplish that!! LOL I will for sure post pics of my sewing area when I wake up in the morning.

For those that are new to Virtual Quilt Day, this is a now monthly all day quilt-a-thon. I started it because I didn't want to have to lug my sewing machine to a local quilt store for one of those and I figured others might feel the same way. There are no rules, join in whenever you can (after church, before church, during church for non-churchy people like me ...... whatever floats your boat LOL). Just give us a quick idea of your goals for the day before you start, then check in through out the day to update us (With pics!! We love them!!) and spread the encouragement to others as well. That's it!! Easy peasy.

I hope you'll be able to join us! So many WIPS see their demise on Virtual Quilt Day, maybe some of yours will join their ranks.

I'm joining I am doing some longarming(customer quilts)I'd like to get two baby quilts quilted at least, organizing my stash by putting all my fabric on comic book boards and I would like to finish the binding on my kids baby clothes t shirt quilt. If I do all of that I'll feel like I had a productive day

I don't own a camera, so no pic of my sewing area. It's a card table at the foot of my bed.

I currently have 3 WIP's - My list for today:

1) Jelly Roll Quilt - top 2/3 done but remaining strips wrinkled so need to soak in vinegar and water. (I need to go buy the vinegar so will pick up some OJ and egg mcmuffins, too. lol)

2) Football D9P project - finish cutting my 9-patches into quarters.

3) Hang jelly roll strips to dry.

4) Months of the Year project - I have 3 (12") blocks to finish, but to do so I'll need to make 13 HST's. I hate doing HST's so keep putting it off. Will work on those as long as I can stand it. Would love to finish, square the blocks and sew top....but we'll see.

5) If I get too aggravated with the HST's I will go back to D9P project and make the matching pillowcase.

Well, that's it for starters, now off to store.

I am already working on trying to finish up a baby quilt. Got half of it quilted and would love to finish the quilting today, maybe even get to free motion the borders. Will see how the day progresses.

It's 6:15 a.m. here in MO and I'm up and at it. My project for the day is my giant scrappy log cabin. I'm making it for our new-to-us camper and I just learned we'll be taking it out in July for it's maiden voyage, so I want it to look good. I'll be on this bedspread all day and then some, but thanks for getting me started! Will post pictures later of current sewing area and progress on LC. Happy sewing everyone!

I can't wait to get started. Not sure how long my energy will hold out, since my son had a party here last night and they woke me up at 4am (after I went to bed at 2). But I'm here till I drop I'll try to post a pic of my room with my first status update.

My goals for today:
1. quilt a table runner and placemats that I finished yesterday
2. catch up on Dancing with the Stars block of the month (just 3 more blocks and I'll be back on track)
3. draft the design for my next baby quilt

I'm in a bit of a lull between projects right now. I want to start another quilt, but the stack of quilts waiting to be quilted is pretty tall. I just ordered a long-arm however, and I want to keep most of those until it arrives. My need to finish is warring with my desire to wait and use the new toy on them.

Now, I'm off to get dressed and start sewing!

7:30 and dreary here in FL...Tropical storm Debbie is dumping rain . About to begin cutting the pieces for my grandson's quilt. Wanted to do this yesterday, but ended up spending all day relaxing with my Cathedral Window project. Would love to get the entire quilt pieced today, and perhaps ready for hand quilting! Have to make a quick run out to drop DD off for her week long Police Explorers competition trip, so since I will be out I might just have to make a stop to use coupons at Joannes before they expire!! I DO need a king size batting for the scrappy quilt to I have completed..But I promise NOT to be there all day!!

I'm here! Coffee is made. Waiting on Sunday paper.

I want to finish fusing the heads on background fabric for my Silhouettes quilt. I have 10 of the 20 already done. Then stitch around them. Then to get sashing cut & sewn.

Can't post any pictures. Mine died last week. I'm using DD's old computer that doesn't have the programming to download pictures to it. But, when I get my new computer in a week or so, I'll get pix sent.

See you later.

Good morning folks!!! Up, dressed, diet pepsi uncapped, ready to go! My goals for today are to finish everything except turning the binding down on one of those french braid table toppers for my SIL for Christmas, and to get everything down and fused on 2 more of the "Sun" BOM blocks to have ready to take on vacation to hand blanket stitch.

Excited to hear about what you're all working on - have fun!!

I will hit my sewing room about one, after church. My goals for today are to get the boarders on the patriotic quilt for my step grandson that was injured in Afghanistan. I work with Miracle Quilts for wounded soldiers, they offered to send him a quilt, but I wanted to do his myself.

I have a quilt on the long arm that needs to be finished so I can quilt his quilt.

If I get this done after church and before cooking dinner, I will feel I did a lot.
