Happy National (International) Quilting Day 2016

Happy National (International) Quilting Day!!!!  I hope you have a most lovely day, and that you might even squeeze in a bit of time to sew.


Why do I quilt?

#1.  Quilting is fun, enough said!


#2.  Quilting brings people together, just as the pieces of fabrics being brought together to make a quilt happen!

#3.  Quilting is caring, the charity quilts, the fund raising etc!  I firmly believe quilters are some of the most loving people!


#4.  Quilting is learning – it keeps the mind young!


#5.  Quilting is history – I shall leave it at that because I can spend a day and a half non-stop to just talk about quilting and history!

#6.  Quilting reflects my own life!  There is more about my life posted here to celebrate last year’s National Quilting Day.  But this year, one aspect of my life is the Work-in-Progress (WIP)-ness of my life.  My life is a work in progress, like quite a few of my quilts… I only pray that I will always be obedient and teachable under the loving guidance of my Lord and Savior.


And so, why do you quilt?  Leave a comment below, and you will be entered in the giveaway of one of my brand new Learn to Machine Quilt Pieced Blocks class DVD.  You will learn 9 different ways to quilt Ohio Star Blocks if you are interested in quilting your pieced blocks beyond straight line quilting.  You may read more about the class here.  Winner will be announced on April 1.  Please note that the giveaway is for a class DVD.  Giveaway of the same class in online class format is forthcoming.
