World Wide Quilting Day

In honor of World Wide Quilting Day yesterday, we are taking a break from our Quiltsy Cares to celebrate.The Quiltsy Team is after all an international quilt group, The history of World Wide Quilting Day started back in 1991 when the National Quilting Association decided to create a special day to celebrate and inspire lovers of quilting, and to encourage others to take up this charming and addictive craft.Quilting Day was born, and has been celebrated ever since by quilt and patchwork lovers every spring. National Quilting Day is always the third Saturday of March.

Of course you don't have to be a quilter to love quilts or quilting. The are an amazing amount of artists and creators of beautiful quilted items. No matter what you are looking for, there is sure to be something that you will fall in love with.

The are always the traditional quilts that someone thinks of when someone mentions quilting.  These are a sample of the amazing quilts that were made by the Quiltsy team. There are bed quilts, lap quilts and a baby quilt.

To the right are a variety of  table decor which includes table runners, table toppers and the fun little quilt called a mug rug.

If you are looking for something special or unique for your walls, look no further that the diversity of art quilts.

And of course we cannot forget that Easter is only two weeks away. Are you ready? Here are some Easter quilts that are sure to make you smile-from table runners, table toppers and even a Easter note card.

As you see, quilts and quilting has evolved into much more than "your grandmother's quilts". Quilting has become a true art form, there are so many talented quilters and quilts aren't just for beds.

Happy National Quilting day to all my Quillting friends far and wide.

May your bobbins always be full,
May your seam ripper never be needed,
May your sissors remain sharp.
May your seams always be true, and
Let your fabric stash for ever be full!
