    I completed my one BOM, but then got distracted cutting up scraps. This is part of the reason I have 60+ projects in progress. Oh, well... Then DGD came over to spend the night and we had a lovely time. Thanks, for all the inspiration -- Feb 17th is already on my calendar!!

    Well, here I am, looks like a day late and a dollar short.....I could not find this posting at all yesterday all day long when I checked. There is some kind of time difference going on here....the most recent posting LTeachergeorge is just above me is posted at at "Today, 06:44 AM" (today in my neck of the woods being Monday 1/21/2013, 10:42AM) However, I did have my project all picked out, and will work on it today. I was just curious as to how I can join y'all in real time on Feb 17th. I do have it marked and plan to be there.
    Make every day count for something!

    Love the idea of a virtual Quilt day but can't do Sundays - anybody else want to work on a different day?
    There is nothing you can do to make God love you more and nothing you can do to make Him love you less.

    I usually search "Virtual Quilt Day" if I can't find the posting in the morning. Rachel usually posts around 5am Eastern time, so after that you should be able to find it. Might be on a later page, if there isn't a lot of activity, which is why the search is handy. Or just look at Rachel's profile page and her latest posting should include it (see the first post in this thread for her username, which I can never remember - sorry Rachel).

    Well did not get too much done yesterday, finished re sandwiching quilt. Spent a lot of time today and managed to finish quilting, have put the binding on two sides and hand sewn one side. If I finish tomorrow will try to post picture.

    So looking forward to 17th February am going to be well prepared and allow no distractions.

    Thanks Rachel

    I would love a different day! By the time I get up, go to church, go eat lunch, get home and change clothes, it's time to go back to choir practice at 4:30. Then, church again at 6, out to eat again, and it's 10:00 pm. I would love a Thursday or a Tuesday, maybe!!!

    Good news....Sunday or Monday, I went out to my sewing room with every intention of making my first neglected BOM (2009) square. Got everything in order, cut the one for March out and got started on it. After several interruptions to help my son get a quilt loaded on the LA, started working my way through the puzzle. Never did figure out one part of it; just winged it and got it together using the picture as a guide. It is all wonky, and everyone will be able to tell that I haven't done any piecing lately. My son said "just keep going, no one will know when you put them all together" so OK, that is what I am going to do. Fun day; and I haven't learned how to do pictures yet. Maybe that will be my February challenge.

    Yes! Sunday is for church and family. Saturday's a group of 3 of us get together, that would be fun to add VQD to the mix. Another good day for me is Monday.

    marsharini, I can't be a part of the sew along today, but I sure do like your quilt! Your "first attempt" at a quilt is a good one, and I like your colors!

    Hi all,
    I have Laura Fisher's quilt that she finished for your virtual quilt day and was supposed to post pics for you. Sorry, My camera has decided that it wants to be unfriendly.. I have tried and tried. I also finished one for my Great Grandson that we call Bricks and Mortar. My apologies to you and to Laura

    Oh MY! I just had to take time to show my granddaughter's quilt made last year. To think there are 2 quilts on the QB with the same material. My flower material came from JoAnn's. Now I am working on our other Granddaughter's quilt. Must get back to my hand quilting. Have a GREAT day Gals!

    I really enjoyed this thread. This is the first time I heard of it. I enjoyed how some of you posted your progress in pictures. I also loved your pictures of quilts as your identification. Wow even though they were small the quilts were so beautiful. Thanks for contributing. I will be looking forward to the next one.

    I could do Saturday or Sunday. I work nights Mon-Fri, so no time those days
    I would also like to do it more often...maybe twice a month?
