    Will you join me for our Virtual Quilt Day - Sunday 9/23?

    September is here and I am ready to sew!! Will you join me once again for a day of sewing with your friends? No rules, just come to the boards on 9/23 and find the new post about Virtual Quilt day. Post your goals for the day, then get to sewing. Come back throughout the day to check in and also to show us your progress. Easy peasy, you can join us whenever you can, early or later if you have commitments in the morning.

    So will you join me on the 23rd?

    Count me in. I have a long list that I am highly unlikely to finish, but progress is good.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    I'll be there! I love the Virtual Quilting Day! Thank you so much for starting it and keeping it up. I honestly think that had it not been for your first Virtual Quilt Day, I would not be quilting now. I had about given up on quilting; but that day so inspired me that I've been quilting ever since and loving it. Thanks a million, Rachel.

    I'm going to try. Husband mumbled something about needing my help with sumptin on Sunday so it depends on how long it takes and what time he get's around to doing it.

    But ... I want to make this in a day.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I will. I missed the last one but on the previous one I finished one quilt for my DH. The first for him. A great success. I think I will be working on a T-shirt quilt for my 7 yr old boy who is turning 8 in Oct.
    :-( I wish I was a full time quilter!

    My parents will be in town that weekend so won't be able to join Hopefully I can do the one in October as I really enjoy them and they're very motivational.

    I was looking forward to seeing this post. I love these days that I totaly commit to sewing! Count me in:

    I will be LA practicing on a sample quilt. I need lots of it! Nine 15" blocks and a border to play in. Just bought a 4"clamshell ruler to learn.

    Also working on UFO #6. A scrappy 'Snake in the Hollow'

    OK ... so where is everyone? I've been sewing for a few hours already

    Someone posted a question about this pattern on Friday http://www.ohfransson.com/oh_fransso...ice-quilt.html and I liked it, so I'm making it. Picked the colors Friday, ironed and cut the squares (27 different squares) yesterday, and started sewing them today. Mine will be in greens and blue.

    I'm making a baby quilt for step-daughter who is due in 3 weeks. It's not going to be finished in time. So I'm making the above *quickie* quilt for her and the one with the tedious applique will be her Christmas present.

    I haven't been able to join the virtual quilting day for the last few months but there is nothing on my calendar for the 23rd so I should be able to. Only thing that may interfere is canning produce from my garden. I have lots of UFO's to tackle.

    Drat, missed the last one because I was traveling and will be traveling again for this one. Hate to miss out but hopefully October will be better.

    Have only managed to join one day so far and achieved so much. Have a day planned with my grandchildren but will try to join in the evening (probably your afternoon). Also have no plans for the following day so will use that as my virtual quilt day and will post then have lots of things to finish off so have high hopes of getting lots done.

    Thanks so much for organising these days

    How's everyone doing? Quilting this weekend!! I have some patterns I am writing, so my plan is to make some samples for those. What is everyone else going to work on?

    Looks like I will be working on beginning a quilt for my grandaughter with Hello Kitty fabric. I also have a scrappy quilt in my frame that I am hand quilting...I have a lot of scraps to organize, but probably won't get to that..

    I've done nothing but cut fabric most of the summer. If I can finish cutting my squares for the 2.5" swap, I'll join. I love the wonky D9P.

    I am busy on Friday night and Sat night and ds2 is coming home from college but I am going to give it a try. I have enough half square log cabins for a lap quilt and enough squares for a disappearing 9 patch for a lap quilt so I really have to get these together.

    Count me in. My goal is to add two borders to an Attic Windows and then start on the pieced back.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I've been waiting & watching for this post for the last few days. Yay! Yes, I will be there, tho am not sure what I'll be working on. There's a 1-day mystery here on the web that day so I may do that (I need to get a baby quilt made so that would kill 2 birds with one stone). Or I may piece some backs. Or work on getting some Dresden Plate blocks ready to be appliqued. I will be there, tho! And I, too, am so thankful & grateful we have these days. They really are worthwhile!

    I hope to spend almost this whole WEEKEND sewing, if this darn flu bug will leave me alone! Count me in!

    I have LOTS of quilts in progress that are destined to be Christmas presents...I really do need to spend a lot of time at the machine over the next few weeks anyway.
