    Get Ready for Virtual Quilt Day This Sunday, March 17 - St. Paddy's Day Edition

    Hi all!

    Are you excited for our 3rd, 2013 installment of Virtual Quilt Day? If you are not familiar with VQD, it's very, very easy. There are no rules!! I will make a new thread on Sunday, then you come back and post your goals in that new thread and then check in through out the day and let us know how it's going and cheer the rest of us on!! Easy Peasy. You can join any time of the day!! I will post the new thread on Sunday at 5 AM EST to try and get in early for those over the pond. Be sure to be on the lookout for it. This is a great way for all of us to have a quilt lock-in without having to drag our machines around town. It's a lot of fun and a lot of work gets done. Woo-hoo!! Of course pictures are appreciated, but not required.

    So what will you be working on this weekend?

    Rachel

    Well Saturday is National Quilting Day and Sunday is VQD, so my weekend is set. I figure about 24 hours of sewing strting Friday night after dinner.

    I am going to finish my "going to class" tote so I can write the pattern (5 hours), I am doing a clothesline basket using Auntiestwo's method (5 hours), and I am going to work on a UFO. Plus I need to make another purse so I hope to get that started.

    I'm in! I've planned a shopping trip Friday (taking a vacation day) to a new quilt shop in a neighbouring town. Then quilt class on Saturday, and now Sunday to quilt my fingers off!

    Will be quilting all day on Sunday, have not been able to participate in the last two so I am allowing nothing to interfere with VQD for March (also it is St Patrick's Day and my husband is Irish so he will be celebrating!)

    I have a twin quilt to sandwich and quilt so hope to get that done on Sunday. See you all then

    I work Sundays but tomorrow I plan to spend making a simple Quilt for my MIL b-day on Sunday.

    Hopefully I will have a picture to post by the end of the day.

    I'm in! I'll be working on my Irish Chain quilt top. I'm currently attaching rows together, and once that's done I can start on piecing the border. I don't think I'll manage to get started on the border, but with a bit of luck I'll manage to finish putting all the rows together!

    I have the last show of Grease at the local high school. I have spent that last two months helping working on costumes so I have to be there and then we have to hang all the costumes. I don't think I will have a chance to sew. I should machine quilt the border's of my son's quilt and put on the binding. If I have a couple of hours maybe I will do that.
