    I know some people don't think you should quilt on Sundays, being a day of rest.......I love quiliting on Sundays

    I finished this Stashbuster quilt top yesterday (Sunday LOL) It's all batiks but I have to get out for border fabric. A nice blue for a 1 1/2 inch border and then a deep brown for a 3 inch outer border. I'm calling it Land and Sea because of the colors.

    Patty....I totally relate to this old wives tale. Growing up, my mother wouldn't let me sew on Sunday because it was a day of rest. She had no problem with making me do housework, cooking, or cleaning. I think it had something to do with her being superstitous...bad luck and all to sew on Sunday. By golly now I do what I want to do and if the Spirits aren't happy...sew what?
    By the way, that's a beautiful quilt...bet you couldn't have done a better job on it any other day of the week. lol.

    I find Sundays are a great day to quilt. I watch football and I get so much done during the course of a 3 hour game. Funny, I wouldn't have considered quilting to be "work" so I would not have included it with the 'day of rest.' To me quilting is relaxing and a great creative outlet. Without it, I think I would go a bit loony! :lol:

    My mother always said that if you sew on Sunday you'll have to pick it all out with your nose in heaven! (if I get there!). But I find that sewing is relaxing and so I like to relax on Sunday. YOur land and sea is sure nice.

    To those who think you shouldn't sew on Sunday - WHATEVER!!!

    Those of us who work spend all day Saturday cleaning, cooking, doing laundry and errands just so we CAN sew on Sunday!!!

    If it is creative, relaxing and makes you happy, do it any time you like!

    Love the quilt! I need a small batik collection like that, but I don't know where I'd put them!

    Patty, I was amazed to read you watch Coronation street, what story line are you up to ?
    My mother in law would never knit on a Sunday , she could be bored witless but would not pick up the needles.
    Your quilt is lovely, beautiful colours

    The debate has raged for a few thousand years over what does and does not constitute "work". According to some, the essence can be found in "G-d created the world in 6 days and on the seventh day, He rested." The follow-on reasoning is that any action that can lead to the creation of something constitutes "work", from which we should rest on the Sabbath (seventh day). ooooooooooook. here's my favorite loophole.

    all the supplies and equiment we use were made and purchased on one of the other days. therefore, the question can legitimately be asked: when we work on a quilt, are we "creating"? or are we merely rearranging bits and pieces of which have already been created?

    things that make you go "hmmmmmmmmmmmmm" .... :lol:

    Never heard that superstition before, but it sure didn't make a bit of difference in your quilt. It's beautiful. Can't wait to see it with the borders. Did you create the pattern yourself or was it one I could find somewhere? Thanks.

    As I was growing up, I always heard "Sew on Sunday, get a whipping on Monday" lol Apparently it didn't get through to me because I love to quilt on Sunday. And you're quilt is lovely.

    Maxies2: We are sooooo far behind the UK in coronation street episodes. We are at when David is sentenced to 4 months for pushing gail down the stairs.

    Redquilter: The site is Stash Pot Pie (I don't have the exact site name, but if you google it the site comes up). It's a Quilt of a Month club that my local quilt shop is running. I believe that you can also register for it online. The name of this particular quilt is called "Pie Chart" (quilt number 3). This club is supposed to help you use up your stash. So far I think I've bought more for these quilts (borders, batting and backing) than used up! I love it though. My favorite quilts are scrappy ones.

    Thanks for all the compliments!

    Patty--your quilt is so peaceful and serene to look at. I really like the colors you used in it. Very pretty.
