What to do on National Quilting day

Saturday March 15 is National Quilting day. You may be wondering what to do on National Quilting day, I know I am. I have the what to wear problem solved, now there's just the activity left to plan. I've divided my choices into several categories.

Less effort required ideas

  • Eat foods that begin with Q.
  • Do only quiet activities, like nap.
  • Love all the quilts you already have

For those of you with a bit more get up and go1604646_10152155933969707_856383148_n

  • Order some fabric online
  • Buy some fabric at a quilt store
  • Plan a new quilt

But it only comes once a year, let's make a day of it

  • Go out for breakfast
  • Hit 3 stores
  • Cut out a new quilt

For the truly ambitious

What I would do if I could choose anything

  • Attend the hands-on workshop at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, KY
  • Meet all of you there!

This is our day, Quilters, to celebrate quilts and quilting!

No matter how you celebrate it, make it a fun day for you and let me know what you've got planned or report back after you've done it!

A day to celebrate quilting makes me sew happy!

    My passions are quilting and sewing. Add to that French, Spanish, books, swimming, travels, new restaurants, biking and chocolate and you have me. All of these are best shared with family and friends. Except for chocolate, I prefer not to share that.
