Worldwide Quilting Day

For those of you who haven't heard yet, March 16th is Worldwide Quilting Day.   Hopefully you have made some plans to visit your local quilt shop or to work on a fun project with some quilty friends.  If you haven't yet, check out the Worldwide Quilting Day website to get some ideas for celebrating this wonderful day.

The Quiltsy team has been busy making items for their shops using the sawtooth star in honor of this special event.  It is so much fun to see the different ways these stars were used.  The Quiltsy Team is one talented group!

Patricia at thebutterflyquilter has this lovely wall hanging in her shop.  Love all the colorful stars!

TerryAskeArtQuilts made this modern mug rug or mini wall hanging.  Perfect for the office.

 Sally Manke made this wonderful table runner.  Her color choices are bright and cheery.  Perfect for the summertime table.


Ann at QuiltingFrenzy has this fun wall hanging she just finished.  She really did some fun quilting in the center of the star.

Jennifer at atthebrightspot has this art quilt available in her shop.  I love the straight line quilting in a variegated thread on this one.  Take a closer look to see the wonderful detail!

 If you are wanting a lovely quilt, Vivian at EggMoneyQuilts has this one in her shop.  Fall will be coming so you had better snatch this one up now!

The soft colors in this table runner by Susiquilts make for a beautiful table centerpiece.  What a great gift this would make for a special friend....


 Carol Ann at MooseCarolQuilts has this mystery quilt made with batiks in her shop....and its queen size!


The vibrant colors in this table topper by MoranArtandQuilts really makes this a show stopper.  And the inspiring words that can be found on the piece really make it special.

Kathy Kinsella incorporated her star onto this gorgeous silk purse.  Be sure and check out the other pictures of this purse in her shop to see the detail on this handbag along with the surprise that can be found on the back.

And the Quiltsy Team shop has this holiday candle mat for sale along with many other wonderful items.  This one was donated by susiquilts.

...and a final entry by PatsPassionQuilteds.  This tablerunner has a shabby chic feel to it with its soft lovely colors.  It's looking for a new home!

So call your friends, shop for some fabric and see what you can create to celebrate the history and freedoms in the creative outlet we all share....
