    Please let me know if everyone quilts on Sunday, or is that a day that you you take off from quilting. The reason that I ask is because my Mother-in-law always told me that I shouldn't sew or quilt on Sunday.

    Why not? It's not the same as work, which is probably the reason she said not to. At least, I find it a good way to relax. . .

    It's often the ONLY day I can quilt. I work full time, am busy after work. Shopping/errands on Saturday.

    My Grandma said, "every stitch you sew on Sunday you will take out with your nose in heaven". At least I'll have something to do when I get to heaven:)

    If it is a way for you to relax and enjoy the day, then yes, by all means do so.
    However if you are going to get yourself into a knot with the project you are doing, then perhaps it would be best to find another form of relaxing on Sunday.

    Yes, I do. I am taking a break from quilting now. The weekend is when I do most of my quilting. I'm not able to do alot during the week, too tired after getting home from work and doing all the evening things that need to be done.

    Sunday is just another day ending in "day", except it's one of two days I don't have to work. This particular Sunday though I did my taxes instead. Yuch.

    Yes, I do. I'm retired so many times the day of the week doesn't matter to me and I sew/quilt away whenever I can. May in Jersey

    Oh my gosh!!!!! That is exactly what my Mother-in-law said to me. I did ask her if she would help me take out the stitches when we got to heaven and she said yes.....but I did promise her that I wouldn't quilt on Sunday. Gotta keep my promise.

    It is recreation and yes I do quilt everyday that I can.

    Today, however, I repaired two pair of jeans for my son. I had to undo the seam, etc. Next time he can take them to the tailor, better yet, maybe his wife can sew them.

    I haven't quilted in over 2 weeks. Haven't had the heart to. But, to answer your question, yes, I have quilted on Sundays.

    That may be a belief of her religion. Have you asked your pastor?

    My Gramma sewed all the time, and she was the most religious and spiritual person I have ever known. She never believed that. She had some funny ideas sometimes, but that was not one of them. I know I would have heard it if she thought it was a valid idea.

    I just can't imagine how anyone could think it would be wrong to quilt on Sunday! Maybe these women felt this was just part of their housework & that is why they didn't do it on Sunday. Where I grew up in Michigan people also believed that everyone had to take a "nap" on Sunday afternoon. I remarked to my mother a while back that I wonder how many babies were conceived during those "naps"! LOL

    I am retired so sewing is part of each day for me. But on Sunday my DD and DIL join me for a quilting session. So much enjoyment from that.
