A Haunted TGIFF! Over at Quilt Matters

TGIFF! is on over at Quilt Matters this week. Better head on over there to link up before you get Hexed...or M-R does.

But before you go...I love the online quilting community and how kind and supportive quilters are. We are a sheltered lot, apparently. I'm often shocked at the comments I see sometimes on other types of sites so I got a good giggle from this clever response to the 'haters' out there. Enjoy! (There is some harsh language!)

OctoberQuest 2 Goes On Despite U.S. Government Shutdown

The U.S. Government shutdown has affected a lot of things, but not TGIFF! and OctoberQuest 2! I wonder if we'll have more participation this week? Any furloughed quilters out there?

TGIFF! is on over with M-R at Quilt Matters this week. Grab your finish and head on over. As we have prizes this month OctoberQuest 2, please be sure to read the rules before linking up!

Before you go though, here's a clip from the Newsroom. Although it's a fictional show, this segment about the current debt ceiling debate in the U.S. is not. It's compelling and worth a watch.

Getting Things Rolling for OctoberQuest 2 Over at Quokka Quilts

It's time! Grab your projects and head over to Quokka Quilts where Laura's getting OctoberQuest 2 rolling with her beautiful jewellery roll.

And on that note, I'm going to apologize right now for this ear worm..rolling, rolling, rolling:

Happy Friday!

It's OctoberQuest 2! - Apparently, she's too busy quilting to cook dinner.To celebrate our first TGIFF! anniversary last year, we held OctoberQuest (challenge, quilt fest - get it?), a month-long challenge to finish off your quilty projects. It was motivating. It was fun. We know it's taken you 11 months to recover from the hangover excitement.

TGIFF! turns two this month and don't you think we should celebrate with a sequel? Yes! And OctoberQuest 2 is bigger and better than the first!

Your quest, should you choose to accept it is to finish up those quilty projects, whether it's for the upcoming Bloggers Quilt Festival, the Finish-A-Long, Halloween, Thanksgiving or even, gasp, Christmas. Or finish up those WIPs, UFOs, charity quilts, or um, overdue gifts -- you decide!

The rules remain the same as last year:
  1. Your quilty project must be completely finished (As much as we love celebrating quilt tops or completed blocks, they will not be eligible for the prizes).
  2. You may enter more than one finish and even more than one finish each week. Just add a link for each finish to one of the linky parties. The linky parties will stay open until the end of the month.
  3. Your blog post or photo on Flickr/Picasa must have a link back to the TGIFF! site and the particular party you are participating in. 
  4. Link up your quilty finish in any of the TGIFF! linky parties this month:
  5. OctoberQuest will be open until October 31st at 11:59 p.m. EST. Winners will be picked via Ms. Random Number Generator on November 1st and notified via email. Please make sure we can contact you via email or we will blow the gift certificates on ourselves need to run Ms. Random again.
To get your quilting mojo going, we've got some sweet incentives for you. We warned you this was bigger and better!
