Many asked last time about a link box and here’s what I’m going to try. Each day during the quiltathon, I’m going to post a “running update” of what I’m doing. I’ll update that post throughout the day and I’ll put a link box in each post. I’ll see if I can put the link boxes at the TOP of the posts for Quiltathons so they don’t get confused with the stash report link box on Sunday. Think that will work?
The link boxes will be open for 24 hours so please get your post done for each day if you want it to be included in the link box.
Here’s my report for September 13 . . and I’ll keep updating this throughout the day:
8:15 a.m. – Laundry is started, housekeeping chores are done, chickens are tended (The Wild Redhead has been caught and put back in the pen, another escape route has been plugged!) As far as sewing, I’m just getting started. The half square triangles paper has been printed using Triangulations.
1:05 p.m. – Border bundle is done. I always make the borders first and then it seems like it isn’t such a chore to get them done. Sashing rows are sewn together and all the sashing pieces are cut.
6:00 p.m. – Quiltathon Day 1 is finished at my house. All the half square triangles are made, the four patches are made, the framing strips and squares are cut. Tomorrow I will cut the triangles that go around the four patches and will begin block assembly.
Hope you’ve all had a productive day!
I love a woman who can admit to being a slob (sometimes!) and a packrat!!!!!!! You are my hero! I luuuuvvvvv you WAY better than all those supposedly “perfect” quilt bloggers out there who never have a hair out of place (much less two different shoes on!—which I also did by the way! I went to school not once, but twice!, with 2 different sneakers on!). Keep up the exciting, inspiring, and hysterical life so that we out here in blogland can read about it and have a few laughs!

So is it raining?
I am “almost” done reading blogs then I plan to get a cup of coffee and get back to sewing a pieced backing for a top that has been on my cutting table for the last 2 months. Another goal for this weekend will be to get a backing for another top that has been sitting around for at least four months now. If I get nothing done but these two tops pinned and ready for quilting I will be happy! But I would also like to work on a commissioned quilt I have sitting around…
Just a little sewing on pillowcases for Marie Bostwick’s Cobbled Court Quilt Circle retreat. We will be donating them to the women’s shelter in CT. If you haven’t read Marie’s Cobbled Court series of novels, I highly recommend them. What great characters that will soon become your friends! Most of today was spent volunteering when our First Lady came to Richmond, VA this afternoon. Such a privilege to be able to be there with her this afternoon. Now back to sewing. I’m working on a sailboat quilt for my brother for his birthday so now I’m back at it.

I’ve been sewing all day it seems, but not really. I have one baby quilt almost finished, just have to put the binding on it, one Curious George Baby book done and blocks cut out to make a matching baby quilt tomorrow. Had to call my daughter to get material for sashing for it, as I didn’t have anything that looked good with it. I am sewing for my first GREAT Granddaughter that is due in November and her momma, my oldest granddaughter doesn’t like pink. Go figure!!! Hope everyone is having a great time on this quiltathon. I know I am!! Thanks Judy for doing this!!
Where can I find the pattern we are doing? Is this a pattern for us all or only a pattern fyou doing?
