    Great colors in your quilt! Can't wait to see it quilted!

    When you have an outside job, Sunday is half your weekend--and the first half is usually spent doing laundry & housework. So if you're going to do any quilting, that leaves Sunday to do it!

    You are not to work on sunday and like you said you love to quilt. NOT WORK to quilters.
    Maybe you should stop cooking on Sunday - BOL see how that goes over. :lol: :lol:

    My grandmother refused to clean house or cook on Sundays. She always ordered from Kentucky Fried Chicken, which I thought was rather funny. She refused to cook on Sundays but it seemed she was fine with allowing someone else to do the cooking for her. :lol:

    That is gorgeous! I faintly remember all stores being closed, etc., on Sundays when I was growing up. But no quilting?

    I love that! The colours are great, well done!

    I remember everything being closed on Sundays when I was little. Except, for some reason, garden centres, which our parents used to drag us around! Then they changed the law years ago and now Sunday is like any other day, but the shops close by 5pm.

    What a beautiful quilt. If it wasn't for Sundays, I would hardly get any quilting done. Sundays is my day.

    well, i find this whole thread very interesting.
    Tiffany, yeah, the 'pick it out with your nose thing'...hilarious! :lol:
    ...and who says we'll have noses in heaven. Your probably right, they have been too handy down here, to many, for sticking where they don't belong. lol...still makes me crack up.:lol:

    Patrice...just love your analogy to the old commercial...things that make you go...hmmm! lol :lol:

    It's a personal thing. I complain that sometimes my sewing becomes work, but that's just me blah-blah-blahing. I choose to go to church as often on Sundays that i can, but quilting being a 'sin?' I don't buy that.
    It's an elective and you sit, most of the time, anyway, on your butt to do it. They fed the animals. So, if I get surprised and end up with my nose in my quilts, well, good thing I'll have forever to do it, cause my nose is pretty round. :wink:

    I, too, was raised by a superstitious mother. Never start a sewing project on Friday or you would never finish it. We got together on Sunday as a family and all of the women sewed on their projects, even though my mother said we should just observe a day of rest. Sewing is fun; so we did it.

    well, since i didn't see any "quota-on-#-of-opinions", police, I'm ringing in again...quilting is about loving and giving.
    Even if I make one for my bed, it's for hubby, REALLY, cause if it were just mine...oh baby, I would make a pink one with roses...but I can't do that to him...so i did it with the other bathroom, lol!!!
    might as well, he kept saying, your on my chair :shock:!

    And the shops that were open on Saturday closed at lunch time.
    We also got dressed nicely to go to the shops. No thongs or shorts a skirt and sandals or a dress.

    Don't feel old....in the town where I live now all the shops and most of the restaurants along the main street are closed on Sundays. And I don't consider 9800+ people a one horse town. The big box stores on the outer edge of town are still open. Rather not shop on Sunday, that's why I quilt on Sundays!!!

    And I remember going "downtown" Minneapolis with my grandmother. Dresses, gloves, good shoes, hats, etc. Jeeez.
