    Thsi information was published in an online newsletter that I received.

    March 19th is NATIONAL QUILTING DAY!


    National Quilting Day is officially the third Saturday of March due to a resolution passed in June 1991 by members of the National Quilting Association. The NQA offers a free pattern in honor of the day. This year’s pattern is titled Build Your Own Log Cabin and makes a 64" square quilt top. Go to www.nqaquilts.org for the pattern and to find out more about the association.

    Thanks for spreading the news. One large quilt guild near me sponsers (sp) a Quilter's Day Out on that Sat. They have demos, show and tell, fat quarter trade, pattern and magazine trades, games, everyone gets a nice door prize, snacks and lunch and we have a great time. Anyone in SE Ohio who would like more info can PM me.

    We are very excited here about the NQD event!!
    This is a pic of one of the three we did last year. The guild opened a day of working on these to the public specifically if they served or had someone serving in the armed forces. We had a very good turnout. We gifted one each to Jacobetti House (retires home), VVA 237 (Vietnam War Veterans) and our local American Legion.
