    Quilter's Day Out in Clarksville, In. I will work in the morning and then an awesome coworker is covering so I can slip out and attend. First time to be able to go and can hardly wait.

    We are hosting a quilt in at the senior center. We already have a pile of quilts ready to be tied and a great place to donate them (Lutherwood Children's Home).

    So after a lot of preparation, the day will be filled with lots of talking, tieing and eating a pitch in lunch.

    Sadly, I have to work for most of the day... but I'm hoping to swing by a quilt store I've never been to before on the way home! It came highly recommended by several ladies in my local quilting group.

    You love them dearly. But mine when he is home and I'm sewing, he seems to come in about every 1/2 hour with a (stupid) question...where is.... how do you do...... I'm hungry.... Breaks my concentration. Gotta get a lock for my door.

    I am taking a class at a LQS today! I didn't realize it was National Quilting Day when I signed up in December.

    Today, I'm attending an Annual National Quilting Day "Social" sponsored by the Sandusky Library at the Follett Museum in downtown Sandusky, Ohio, 1-3:30 pm.

    This social has been going on for over 5 years... that I've been involved with and the curator, Maggie, is herself a quilter.

    Several sit in the parlor and chit chat, share news and tips, show off our current projects, hand quilt, applique, hem/bind or just sit and share quilt magazines we no longer need! It's a wonderful afternoon in a quaint setting, surrounded by history and quilts and quilters !!!!! There is also a quilt frame set up - Grandmother's Flower Garden - for anyone to work on...an ongoing project!!

    What fun! If you're in the area, join us!

    I plan to finally get DD quilt on the frame. If my DH can get all the yard work done, and still have clean enough hands, we are off to the frames, upstairs. Took youngest DD quilt off them this week! Excited to see this next one get going.

    I had a fantastic National Quilting Day! I spent it in class at LQS with Linda Visnaw learning Trapunto. We learned two unique quilting techniques - Trapunto and quilt-as-you-go. Today was the last day of 3 fabulous days spent in class with Linda. The first day we learned how to plan and audition quilting motifs and different designs to apply to our quilts, and the second day we learned all over quilt designs, like stippling, freemotion/freehand fill designs and just "doodling". I learned so much and it was three days very well spent!

    Today five quilt guilds from Pinellas County in Florida gathered together at Heitage Village to celebrate NQD. There where two quilts hanging quilts in the village church, two in the old school house and one in what is called the McMullen Booth house. Several members from each guild gathered in the Pinellas room and did demenstations on making of quilts begining to end. They also had a display of blocks with there names. It was a wonderful time the weather was beutiful and warm. We had lots of visitors. This is the third year we have done this and it only get better.

    Generally my quilting bee buddies and I do some hand quilting all day.
    This year we went to the Glendale Quilt Show, bought lots, ate lots,
    and enjoyed everything.

    I brought the last few quilts I worked on to my mom and dad's today and gave them a mini quilt show. They really enjoyed it.

    One quilt is a t-shirt quilt for my nephew with a Boy Scout theme. He is an Eagle Scout from way back in 1998 I think. These t-shirts have been hanging around in his dad's closet for years. So his dad, my brother, brought them to me awhile back to "do something with." It will be a total surprise.

    Another one is for my 32 year old son, made of batiks. He's been waiting about 5 years for it. And then there are all the tablerunners I'm working on.

    Pictures coming soon. Sorry, haven't had time, too busy quilting since I moved my comfy chair to my sewing place.
