    Sewing quilts all day!

    I spent the whole day sewing quilts, making pillow cases and cutting material for kits.... I decided to go thru my material and make kits, putting them in ziplock bags. if it is all cut out and ready and organized it will be so much easier to do.. I did that one today from start to finish... I am sooooo happy!

    Isn't that a great feeling!! Thanks for the tip on making your own kits.

    When I was recently on vacation I took a few projects to cut. It was really fun. It's so true that having the fabrics decided upon and pieces cut makes the completion of the project so much easier and faster. I definitely will be precutting projects in advance, especially when going to a quilting retreat

    That's a great idea! For me the cutting out is the hardest and most stressful!

    I did that last week with bow tucks, cut 11 of them. Today, most of them are halfway together. Goes so much faster! good idea to do that with quilt tops!

    i spent the whole day making a mess! I took at this fabric, then that fabric, then another, and so on. I didn't put them away and I sewed almost nothing. The end result of all that work is simply a mess.

    I had a good time making the mess, but cleaing it up tomorrow will not be nearly as much fun!

    so glad you could spend time the way you want to. I think to myself today I will do some sewing or even organize my sewing room then DH comes along and says I nead this cut out or that cut out so there goes my day, When I say cut out I am talking about chipboard for the cat furniture, NOT my quilts, GRRR. LOL

    You must have been so busy! I spent the day with my granddaughter that I don't see often and showing her how to make a quilt for her doll. She is 9 and learns quickly and is good

    What a great day--to work and play in your fabric all day long. I'm sure you enjoyed yourself immensely.

    I don't think I got any of that organizing DNA, but it is a really good idea!

    What a great idea! I hate cutting and it would probably be better to do a BIG batch at a time and have more time later for the fun parts. Thanks for the tip :-)

    Great idea! Cutting is the lazy part of a quilt for me. Once it is done, the rest seem to simply fall in place.

    Sounds like a fantastic day. I think I'm going to try for this next Saturday, after I drop Gus at a scout event.

    Cheers, K
