    It's Back!! Virtual Quilt Day will be on Sunday 1/20 - Are you ready??

    I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. it has been a busy couple of months for me. Not much sewing at all!! So I am happy to be bringing back our VQD so maybe I can get something quilty done!!

    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 you have 3 days to prepare ...... Will you be joining me??

    Ah Rachael she with so much energy! I always have virtual quilt days. I quilt all day on Sundays until I need a break. It sounds like fun if my memory is working I will pop on over here. I am doing a quilt for quilters that needs movement on it and also a wall quilt for Rhondas quilt swap that i havent even started yet. Yikes! so sure bring it on! today its mug rugs and quilted tablerunners for two of my board friends got one runner done not bound and well conceptualized the other runner so busy day. I am not terrifficaly fast. about two blocks per day and I am tired most of the time. I am on dialysis so you see Sunday is my Saturday lol I treasure Sunday and Mondays all day quilt time with a bit more energy. yahhoooo!!! see you Sunday. ghee could someone come help me virtually? like with the cutting? lol lug your machine your welcome at my house anytime everyone.

    This sounds like fun. I always seem to need some motivation. But, my problem is once I get on the computer I forget the time and spend literally hours reading all the posts! But, I think I will check in anyway. I have goals for the weekend and just need to get it done!

    I've been waiting for this one! So much quilting to get done in January and February before our quilt show. Having to commit and check in helps keep me motivated....me, the procrastinator, LOL!
    See you there....though surely NOT at 5am!

    Looking forward to it!! I should have most of my goals for Jan finished by then, so maybe I can do something for myself.

    There's a possibility I will be a part of this. I was planning on using Sunday to work on some stuff anyway, but we will have to see how it goes. I also have ballroom practice for 3.5 hours right in the middle of the day that day so that will take up a big chuck of time.

    I have been waiting for this and getting prepared to get a lot of sewing done! Woopie!
    peace

    I'm in the process of unsewing my apple blossom quilt and turning the diamonds around because I didn't like the way I pieced it with the solid center. I want to finish it on Sunday.

    Shoot! We are going out of state this weekend and won't be back until late Sunday.. . Pooo! I was just thinking about the VQD earlier this week and thought maybe it would get me out of my slump. I haven't done any quilting since right before Christmas. I did clean my quilting room and sorted out some fabrics to donate but that is the closest that I have gotten to quilting in a while. I'll probably have to blow the dust off my machine when I finally sit down to do something quilty!

    There is a big football game that day - but I will join you until the afternoon - husband is going to a rally in the am then he is having a man's football party. the wives are having dinner out at the beach and then to the movies. I will put in a couple of hours of quiet sewing while he is gone. I will be washing fabric tomorrow for some quilts for kids - so I have some new to do. I am so tired of finishing one UFO, but I am 90% finished with the blocks, and tomorrow, I am finishing the blocks. come Heck or high water (or snow).

    I plan to quilt all day on both Saturday and Sunday this weekend. I will try to remember to check in. I may not because of that awful CRAFT disease I have.

    Do we quilt our own thing and just log. On periodically to show how we are progressing? Never done this before.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    Yep, that's basically it. Quilt all day on any project(s) you want, share progress as you go along, and have fun! Or, as some of us do, start reading the thread, get all caught up on the computer, and get nothing done all day
