    After about 6 weeks of very little quilting I have been sewing up a storm this last week or two. Have made two small lap quilts for my two grandaughters (just need to complete the hand sewing for two sides of the binding on one). That leaves four WIP (sounds so much better than UFO); two identical twin size quilts which have 48 appliqued blocks (seemed like a good idea at the time!) an embroidered tote bag and a sewing pouch. So this weekend I am hoping to finish piecing one of the quilts and to applique and put together three columns of the other quilt, I have set myself a target to finish by the end of September so I can begin on my Christmas list. Rachel you will have to keep these days going to keep me on track. See you all on Sunday, rotary cutters at the ready and machine engines running.

    How about advent calendars. I know it will be after the advent when they get them, but they make such great keepsakes to pull out every year!! Wallets and purses seem to be a big hit for girls too nowadays, especially with the popularity of Vera Bradley .... Sorry I am not much help!!

    Just a quick reminder!! Sunday is the day!! I have been working on patterns, and I can't wait to be able to get more done!! My hubby is planning on keeping our son occupied the whole day, so I am going to be a quilting fiend. Here's a peek at a few designs I have already done:







    So how is everyone else doing getting stuff together?

    Cheers!

    I'll be there!! I've designed a QR code quilt for my husband. I got all 729 3 1/2 inch squares cut out and now I'm ready to get started. Hopefully, I'll actually get started tonight.

    My day with the grandchildren has been postponed until next week so I will be joining everyone on Sunday. I am going to finish the applique on my twin quilt; put the last three columns together and hopefully attach the borders. Then if I get all that done I will start the applique on my second (matching) twin. I hope to get some done before Sunday but I am so looking forward to a great day. Rachel will you be starting a new thread or are we going to post on this one? See you all Sunday.

    That sounds neat! And totally geeky Is it a readable code to a particular site he's keen on?

    ETA: geeky is a good thing in my book. Hope I didn't offend you.

    Glad you can join us!! There will be a brand new thread started, so be sure to look for that one!! Honestly the last few months I haven't sewn as much on our Virtual Days, and I was sad about that. this month i am planning on getting a lot done!! We'll see how it goes.

    Cheers!

    Working on a BOM quilt -- have the 12 blocks complete -- am working on the sashings and need to get border fabric I'd also like to machine sew a couple bindings on, so they will be ready to hand stitch down. Who knows what else might be added to the list by Sunday? Looking forward to it!!

    Okay - it's 7am and I'm going to procrastinate for an hour while I take a hot bath. Then it's cutting border strips for me!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I have been asked to donate a quilt for a raffle in less than a month. I'm putting everything (housework, laundry, "real meals", other UFO's) aside so I can get this quilt done and shipped out.
    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!

    I have been joining in unofficially. I work on something every day, but right now I am trying to finish some things to put up for sale to help my daughter buy some product for her business. So I am going to pull some things that are so close to completion and see if I can get several done in one day. Will post later what I decide to put on the 'to do' list for Sunday. I always enjoy reading the posts on the days you all work together.

    I'll be here on Sunday. I'll be working on the quilt for granddaughter Mary. I was going great guns when I started it beginning of August but life has interferred a bit and I haven't worked on it at all this month. She got engaged last year and I want to get the quilt to her before she gets married. May in Jersey

    Sorry I will miss this one. Hot summer means early crops and I will be driving the combine to pick corn after church. We are just thankful to have crops to pick. Many farmers across the country do not because of the drought.

    I'll participate at least part of the day. The Blue Angels are here this weekend and we are going to that tomorrow afternoon. I have some things to finish for a craft fair for our small sewing group. It is a fund raiser to pay for the room we sew in for the next year. I have a couple more table runners to finish and am making pot holders/hot pads from orphan blocks. I am making my 4 adult children quilts for Christmas. Two tops are done, queen size, and ready to be pinned. One is in the process of being cut out, queen also, and I just decided what design to make for the 4th which is California king size. Of course, if I make them one, my 7 year old grandson will want one, too. So I have lots of projects to choose from.

    Ohhhh prefect for a newbie!!! Can I play too?
    My goals are to do the 3 B's on my SQT monthly mini. It's a new pattern for me, but I really like it. Do the 3 B's to "Penny Candy". Then do the test layout on my "Boo" quilt for my son, from there start sewing the rows together. For my TV Time work on hand stitching the second "raven" down on it's background.
    If I get thru all that I've some other hand work to do. I'll let you know how far i get on the list.

    Toodles,
