If so, now is a good time to get things prepared so you can have a very productive day of sewing!!

    Cheers!

    I'm in but gotta do "split shift". Early morning 1st then gone 5-6 hrs then back again. Last time got a great start on my scrappy log cabin blocks & the layout. Have since finished them all. This time will be putting the borders on a turning 20, sandwiching it and maybe start the quilting. I don't like leaving a WIP to start something else but the turning 20 is for a friend moving to China the middle of June so that's got priority over my personal scrappy log cabin for my camper. Just FYI tho I have started the quilting on my giant log cabin!;-)

    Oh for sure will do this. Maybe can cross a few things off my Quilt Must Do Now list. Now where did I put that list?
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    Hey May I loved your little pillowcases for the quilt show. I got a couple of pictures and will post them tomorrow.

    It was a great show.

    I may be able to join you tomorrow morning. Dh is camping and ds wants to spend time with his gf.

    My DH has decided he needs to run by his office early, too, so I'm gonna sew like it's 1999... or something like that! Woo hoo! Be there or be square!

    Oh, this sounds like a great way to avoid the remodeling that I should be working on in the basement... Time to get back out the UFO for MIL's birthday in August... I'll be there, at least for part of the day.

    You sew something you going. Or anything that you wanna do that's "quilty". You tell us about it. Here's the link from the last time to give you an idea --->

    As long as you don't mind me hanging out in my nightshirt and socks.....I'll be there. I'm thinking of cutting out a new lap quilt in shades of vivid green and turquoise. At least that's the plan. Might change up the color palette before I'm done though.

    You can or you don't have to!! This is just a fun way to inspire you to make a list of what you want to accomplish, share it with us, then proceed to work through your list. Update us every so often to keep yourself liable, and have fun!! I look at it like an all day sew at a quilt store, you can work on anything you want, you have friends to cheer you on, but you can work in your PJs and you don't have to lug your sewing machine anywhere!! Pictures are optional, but of course we would love to see them if you have them!

    Hiya!! i think my explanation above should help, and I will have more details in the actual post as well. let me know if you have any other questions!

    Of course!! that's the best part of a *virtual* sew day!! I will be in my PJs too. of course I also work from home, so I am in my PJs more than I am not nowadays!! hehe You quilt sounds lovely, I hope we'll get to see pics along the way!

    I'm in. I have a baby quilt that need to be finished by Saturday that I am in the process of marking to quilt. I am also 4 weeks behind on another project. I think I need to go to the store for thread to quilt the baby quilt. I think I will work on my paper pieced stars today. Can't wait to get started

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
