This year National Quilting Day is March 17, 2007. In honor of quilting and quilter's, I have a few plans. First, I would like to invite anyone interested to come to the chatroom and play QUILTO for laughs and prizes. QUILTO is a bingo type game played using words instead of numbers. Anyone interested in playing and chatting, send me your email addy by PM. DO NOT post your email in this thread. I will send you a list of the words for QUILTO and how to prepare.

Secondly, as National Quilt Day falls on St. Patrick's Day, I offer up a challenge for all to make one block to be posted on Saturday, March 17th for all to see. Your block can be green, in honor of St. Pat, or something to honor National Quilt Day. You have one week to complete a block. DO NOT post until Saturday, March 17th. Everyone who posts a block will be entered in a drawing for a prize.

I hope many if not all of you will join us for this fun filled day and maybe you will be lucky enough to win! Remember, I need you to contact my PM with your Email addy, so I can send you the rules and word list for QUILTO. I forgot to mention the time for the game, 3pm EDT, March 17th. Remember to subtract an hour for each time zone west of EDT. Hope to hear from you soon. :D

Boo, Don't know where I'll be on the 17th. I'll post my quilt block for sure that morning but may miss the QUILTO game. My husband likes to have his cornbeef and cabbage so we'll be out and about! (I cooked it once, that was enough for me!) :roll:

Remember though, I win! It's because I cheat so I don't have to play to win!! :lol:

I'll be at my grandson's wedding, all day. I'm decorating that morning, then directing the wedding, then I'll collapse for several days after making the emerald green and pink bridesmaids dresses.

I'll get in on the next one, though, it sounds like fun!!
