"Think you can't change the world? Too late, you already have. It was changed for the better the minute you were born. There are more people than you can imagine who will never be the same because they came in contact with you, if only for a fleeting moment." ~Gail Purcell

Happy Days

Happy National Quilting Day!!

March 20th has been designated National Quilting Day!

"The National Quilting Association has designed this free pattern for your group or guild as you celebrate National Quilting Day, March 20, 2010. Let's not forget the tradition to use up what we have on hand. So with this in mind, gather up your scraps, grab all those funky yellows, bits of brown and pieces of anything. Use what you have, even if it means making a purple tree with yellow bows! Be creative!
Here are ways to give your quilt:
  • VA hospitals — they would make great lap quilts.
  • If a military base is nearby, contact the social services there to see where to give the quilts.
  • The quilt would be a great gift to the family of a soldier serving overseas. A child might like one on the bedroom wall while waiting for Mommy or Daddy to come home.
  • Contact local churches to see who in the congregation might be serving in the war zone and give a quilt to the family through the church. Or give it to the church to hang in their parish hall to remind everyone they have a member serving overseas"

AND Happy Spring Everyone!! Happy Fall to my friends in the southern hemisphere!! I think we are all happy to see the harsh winter/summer behind us and milder days ahead!


  1. Happy Quilting Day girlfriend! Was a wondeful day to visit the quilt shop today and get a stash of fun goodies!
    My quilt guild gives to the Child Development Center here locally. It's always fun to see the kiddo's pick out their quilts and snuggle with them.
    Hugs and friends,


Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. You made my day!
