    Will you join me for our Virtual Quilt Day - Sunday 10/14?

    The date it drawing near again!! This will probably be our last one until after the holidays, so will you join us? No rules!! Just post your goals in a new thread on Sunday and check in through out the day and let us know how it's going and cheer the rest of us on!! Easy Peasy. join anytime of the day!! I will post a new thread on Sunday at 5 AM EST. Be sure to be on the lookout for it.

    I am planning on working on more examples for my patterns. I do have some quilts I should be working on, but I am just not feeling it right now. So what will you be working on?

    Cheers!

    I have plans to join! I will either finish my biscuit quilt or start a baby quilt for a co-worker. Project choice will depend on if I find the time to purchase the fabric for the baby quilt!!!

    Hmmm, a board member is asking for help making lap quilts for a nursing home. If I can find a quick and easy scrappy pattern I'll join in.

    Count me in! I've got two queen size quilts ready and waiting to FMQ so we can use them this winter. We got our first snow last night... time to get these quilts done! They are both spray-basted and I'll get started with some stitch-in-the-ditch tomorrow and be ready to FMQ by Sunday. Now I just have to decide which one to start on.

    We have a neighborhood picnic/grilling after 2:30 so I probably will not make it this time. Pooh. Maybe, if I wake up early enough; I am working on a community quilt for our guild at present and Mother is quilting some placemats.

    Jan in VA, who had been looking forward to this one.

    Hi there - I'd like to be in but your Sunday is my Monday and I will be working. I may have something small that I can finish off after work but even if I don't have time to sew, I will certainly be checking in to see what everyone else has accomplished.

    I think this is a great idea to spread enthusiasm and motivate each other.

    Happy sewing on Sunday everyone.

    Hi Deecee! Welcome! I will be working on some embroidery snowflakes for a Christmas tree Elisabrat is taking to a nursing home. And while I am doing that, I may try to sandwich 2 quilts that are ready for the longarm. Also have another that needs the piano key border sewn on and sandwiched. I am sure there are more I can find.

    I will try..... my DH will probably want help cutting wood for next year's woodpile. ... and I always help. But, if I can sneek in a little quilting time, I'll try to do that. I'm working on a cathedral window for my daughter's 25th wedding anniversary. Her 25th was last year but..... the quilt's not done. So, I need to get back to it. I got interrupted with a cabin remodel this summer and 2 quilts for my great nephew and neice.

    The last time you all did this, I joined in but didn't post anything. I got the nephew's quilt nearly done that day. I should have said something but.... tomorrow!

    I'll be there after early church. I'll be either working on a pin wheel quilt or quilting a jelly roll quilt on my sewing machine. I have so enjoyed the virtual quilting days and look forward to them next year.

    I'm in! I'll be working mostly on hand sewing binding while watching football. If the games aren't exciting, then I'll be at my machine...

    I haven't joined in before, but this does sound fun and I have several tasks I will be working on this weekend. I have several baby quilt panels that need quilting. They are already pinned and ready to go. I also plan to cut strips for a Christmas tree skirt and sew them into strips for a wedge cutting gathering on Thursday. Look forward to seeing what we all work on and accomplish.

    I don't think I am going to be able to join in this month. I think we are going to be cutting a tree down for my mom tomorrow. I am sewing today. I just laid out some D9P squares and getting ready to cut some fabric for a couple of other quilts.

    I will check in on you tomorrow night to see what got accomplished.

    I have 9 quilts to bind, so I will be here! I will be binding all day. See if I can make a dent in that pile at all or if I get burnt out right away.

    I'm in , thought I was going to be away this weekend but am staying at home. I always get so much done on these quilting days. Not sure what I am going to do yet, am making a small art quilt picture as a wedding present; need to applique blocks for 2nd twin quilt (finished the top on the other one last quilting day) and have to start a wall hanging for a friend's birthday on the 27th. Hopefully will decide by tomorrow morning. Thanks for organising this day Rachel, I need one for November though as I have 8 Christmas stockings to make! Pretty please

    I am going to be joining tomorrow. Have a quilt I am just beginning to put together. Lots of strips and then pressing those strips. If I get bored with that one I have several others I can work on.
