And I have a UFO that needs just a little more work--I think it's a design by Front Porch, uses drunkard square blocks in two sizes. Basically, I have to fix a goof. I've already done the unsewing that was needed. Now, to insert a strip, re=sew, border and done--My only distractions this weekend will be my two labradorable dogs. Husband (poor guy) is a CPA up to his eye-balls in work before the 17th!
    Something I always wonder about when patterns give timelines about how long a pattern will take to finish, how many "let the dog out" break are included in that? LOL! I swear... my Leo KNOWS "Mommy in sewing room means I must bark & potty & play" all day... LOL! But I wouldn't give him up for all the fabric in the world... & that's saying something!!!!!

    If y'all didn't think I was a total nutjob, this should seal the deal for you. I LOVE doing the binding... love, love, love it! Except for picking the fabrics, it's my favorite part. So I envy you! See? I need professional help... LOL!

    I'm going to go on Saturday w/ the rest of the working world. I would rather go Sunday because there will be less people there, esp in the morning.

    I wish I could join you but I have a great grand daughter and a granddaughter that are celebrating their birthdays that day. One will be 21 yrs old and the other will be 1 yr. old. Such a joy. But I am sure you all will have fun and maybe I can check in later in the afternoon. Marge

    Hope to join you, missed your last one. I have sseveral projects going on but I think I should be able to make good progress if I "join" some other quilters so should be good motivation. I think I am ahead of you here but not sure by how much. I am writing this post at 11.55am our time so should be able to work out time difference. Lets home I can get started a report some good work by the time you set up the new post. Can't wait, thanks for doing this

    So you are ahead of me by 5 hours (this board is 3 hours behind me). I will be sure to post the thread nice and early (unfortunately I wake up very early for work, which often carries over to weekends too) so you can check in sooner!! Glad you can join us!!

    I would like to join. I have my whole house cleaned, my sewing room picked up (as I have someone coming on Saturday to look at my mid-arm as I'm selling it) so I can sew all day Sunday. Looking forward to it.

    Yay!! I am so excited to see how many of you will be quilting with me on Sunday!! Is everyone getting their projects ready? I made a list and I plan on getting more done this time than last time, which will be easier with more of you holding me accountable!!

    Cheers!

    Oh I'm so up for this!!! Hubby's leaving to go out of town (for the week -- YEAH!!!) and I plan on quilting the entire week (well all but when I have to go to work, when I go to church and etc). I've got 6 or 7 quilt tops that need quilting for the local hospital and 2 baby quilts I need to get started on.

    Can't wait to start!!!!

    Hopefully, I can join in. Have to start getting things organized for a workshop I am leaving for immediately after work on Friday, and tomorrow is cleaning day - BLECK! - but I should still be able to get it done in time.

    I have the blocks for a Chunky Churndash to be put together and a queen sized top to bind.

    I have binding to do on 4 quilts and I don't like binding. I will join in and machine bind both sides of my quilts. I'm Pacific coast time, so I'll join in late and stay late!

    I'm hoping to join you all for a bit on Sunday too. I've got cleaning and laundry to do today so I can play a little tomorrow. Guess I'd better put the computer down and get to it!

    Count me in. I'm making a scrappy log cabin & I have 19 blocks done so far- don't know how many more I'll need so I'm in for the day. My husband will be out of the house for most of the day, too, so no interruptions! Yay!

    Listen, girlfriend, if you get bored Sunday & can't find anything to sew on, you're certainly welcome to come to the wilds of western WI & work your magic on my house & mots certainly my sewing room... LOL! Seriously, it looks like one of the tornadoes buzzing around today came right down my center hall... LOL! I'm afraid to answer the door for fear it's the health department... LOL! I should be doing some serious spring cleaning today but guess what? I've got a date to SEW with my QB buddies so that's what I'm doing!!! Plus watching my Red Wings. Plus having some yummy Chinese food for lunch. YAY!!!

    Y'know what they say? "Man plans & God laughs". It's true. I had a big, wonderful project all planned (see one of my previous posts) but then life stepped in. Oh, trust me... I'm still quilting. But my project has changed. I know I've bored you all to tears with my wonky knee (not nearly as cute or fun as wonky stars, trust me) & it's reared its ugly head again (is that even physically possible?). I have degenerative bone disease in my right knee (my sewing knee) & while I'm not "disabled", it does cramp my style. So, Friday evening I was out in the backyard, throwing a stick for Leo (am I a great doggie mommy or what? Throw a slimy stick till my arm aches... but I can't say no to my little love puppy) & I stepped wrong & down I went. Yep... fell right on my ever-expanding rear end & twisted said screwy knee/leg like a pretzel. I'm OK (& I already had a MD regular check-up appointment scheduled for Tuesday) but my leg is pretty tender & I just don't think standing on my feet a bunch would be good, so I'm going to do hand work in bed instead. I have a Project Linus quilt to bind & I also have a bunch of applique things to work on. So... change of plans but not cancellation. And still Red Wings & food, food, food! Let's rock this, ladies!

    Morning everyone, well it is here anyway and I have been sewing for an hour. I know there is probably going to be a new thread started on this , but I want to post already so will transfer onto new post when it starts.

    I am making two identical quilts measuring 45"x84" I need 36 blocks, have most of it cut out (still got 72 hst to do). Have pieced and completed 4 blocks, have 8 blocks to be sashed and 14 blocks partially completed.

    I have divided my day into hour long blocks with a target for each hour. Already I am way behind but then I always overestimate what I can do. But I am not looking on it as a failure but as an accomplishment, I am closer to completing the quilts than I was an hour ago. I think this virtual quilting is a great idea as I often think I am going to quilt all day but things get in the way and this has kind of given me permission (like taking a class) to just go for it. See you all later when you get up. Must be the first time in my life I have ever been early for anything lol. Eileen

    well, it's looking grey and overcast. I was going to split my time between quilting and the garden. So, soon as I finish my cup of coffee, I'll head upstairs to work.
