    Virtual Quilt Day This Sunday, February 17, 2012 .... Get Ready!!

    Hi all!

    Are you excited for our 2nd, 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

    I will be there until 2PM, as I am hosting an Open House in a new development. I will bring hand quilting to do if it is not busy.

    I'll be there most of the day...I hope. Got lots to finish up.
    I love these VQDs as I get very motivated by everyone's progress.

    I just wanted to say that the last time you did this, I got a lot done. I didn't post about it, but just knowing others were working got me motivated and I finished two UFOs. So thank you for doing this!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Oh yay! I didn't realize it was this weekend. I have a quilt to bind, borders to put on another, 2 baby quilts to quilt, 5 of my BOM for this month to do. Lots of work, and probably not enough time on Sunday to do it all. Good news is, Monday's a holiday

    I am in! I promised myself that I would not quilt until I got my place cleaned. Ergo, I have not quilted since before christmas! How embarassing!!! (except for my by hand cathedral windows - do that when out and about).

    Oh, my how to prioritize??? How about this?

    1. complete block for monthly swap
    2. re-baste lap quilt (don't ask)
    3. cut and piece two blocks for 2012 craftsy BOM (8 down, 12 to go)
    4. baste christmas tree skirt
    5. prepare fmq practice sandwiches
    6. take first stab at fmq (if I have not started swearing yet, I will now lol)

    Oh my gosh, I am exhausted already! lol

    Sounds like fun. I love sewing with friends, and this time I don't have to haul my machine!

    I am so exciter I'm off this Sunday, so I can sew with everyone. Yea!
    I will be working on a sampler quilt top for a friend, hopefully finishing all 18 blocks that need to be seen. Some where during that time, I plan on on quilting a baby quilt and getting that project completed. That should keep me busy this weekend.

    I need to sign up! I told my husband, "I know it doesn't matter, but it helps me stay motivated and important and mandatory so I can get things done!" I just haven't been "feelin' it" since I finished everything for Christmas. I need to get back in the groove, and finish a cute cheater that I've been piddling with. Then I have to play with my new industrial that I bought just for FMQ and figure out what kind of thread she likes! I haven't wanted to do that until I finished my last UFO
    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!

    I'll be sewing with all of you, just don't know which quilt I'll be working on yet. Maybe I'll need to shop!

    I feel ya!! I started doing these says 6-8 months ago for this very reason. I wasn't feeling very quilty and felt like I just needed a day to do it and I figured if I roped other people into it with me it would motivate me even more!!!

    Cheers!
