    I'm in! Last time, I spent almost all day making one very intricate block. Last weekend, I had my own personal quilt retreat and made the top for a baby quilt. This weekend I HAVE to finish the top for my son's quilt. I am sick of the project (it is almost all HSTs...ugh) and am dragging my feet on it. Hopefully this is the weekend that it gets done!

    I will baste a quilt this afternoon and start Quilting it after I go to early church tomorrow. I am making a supper that will give me leftovers for Sunday dinner for my husband; won't have to stop to cook.

    I always seem to miss these, till it's too late. So count me in. I was going to work on some UFO's today, but I guess I can postpone till tomorrow. I have 3 quilttops that need to go on the long arm. One is all ready to go. The others just need to have the backing made to the right size. Then maybe today I will think about another one to start after I finish those. If I can get these 3 tops finished I will have all my UFO's finished. Can you believe that????

    I've never done one of these before, but sometimes I sew in the afternoon when DH snoozes or watches ballgames. This sounds like a great day to take a little break and work on my quild BOM's of which I am so far behind. I must be in a fog this morning,but I have two questions: Scrap sack 2's? and Biscuit quilt? Both sound interesting.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I will be in church in the morning. I teach a SS class and then church services.
    I may work on some donation quilts in the afternoon. Our quilt group is making 18 quilts for hospital beds for a local hospital. Also children quilts for Cooks Childrens Hospital in memory of a dear member who passed this year

    Yes, a friend and I already planned to get together Sunday to work on quilts for our granddaughters. I'm not exactly sure how this works but we will join you. I guess we just check back in to this post? I'm newbie on this sight sort of - at least to posting anything. Sounds like a fun time.

    This reminds me of last Christmas when we all gathered for the Secret Santa gift reveal. That was so much fun, so I can't wait to join this one tomorrow.

    I am going to prepare today. I have to go to the LQS to get some Moda Muslin today and I am going to get my 4" squares cut today. I am also going to make sure my sewing room is all straightened up so I have a nice clean room to sew in all day!

    I may join. I'm working on the General's Wife quilt and I am caught up on the BOM but I'm making the quilt kit to make it king size. I have 4 blocks of 20 done so I could work on that. I also have a quilt I want to quilt and it would be a good day to do that. See you tomorrow!!

    I'm hoping to get some of my Bonnie Hunter's Orca Bay worked on a little. My son is home visiting from college this weekend and goes back Sunday after he takes me out for a belated birthday dinner. So not sure how much I'll get done.

    I think this is a great photo op. How some before and after pics??? I am willing to take pics of my Monopoly quilt that is ready to be bound tomorrow. I even have another quilt, a valentiney quilt that will be quilted tomorrow.

    I am doing some sewing today. I think I needed to in order to finish tomorrow where I want to. Making good progress.
    I don't know why telling a bunch of virtual people that I have a sewing goal makes me focus and accomplish stuff but it does. Otherwise, I just caught up in lots of other chores and errands. Thanks so much for thinking of this!
