National Quilting Day, Saturday 19 March 2011

It took a non-quilter genealogist to bring "National Quilting Day" to this gal's attention. Thanks to our friend Thomas MacEntee who keeps tabs on all sorts of things including Geneabloggers and GeneaPress. Somehow, he manages to find out about doings over at the website for The National Quilting Association, Inc. as well. KUDOS!

My good excuse is that I've been busy working my quilt blocks up for the Genea-Quilters 2011 Block Challenge to benefit the Southern California Genealogical Society's Jamboree scholarship fund.

The National Quilting Association's website encourages us to "Build Your Own Log Cabin for National Quilting Day 2011" Download the free pattern here, and check out other free patterns while you are visiting the site.

JUST what I needed was a national holiday to celebrate quilting! Now I am sure Mr. Myrt won't mind my observing this special day by diligently quilting away, while he take his woodworking class.


  1. Oh and how do you know that I'm not a secret closet quilter? I do know my yo-yos from my Flying Geese.

  2. Since I am not as involved with the quilting circle these days like when I was a vendor, I was unaware of the fact that today was National Quilting Day. It gave me a reason to post one of my quilts on my blog. Thanks for the reminder.
