    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!!

    I've got my St. Pat's day block made. I know when we're supposed to post it but now I want to know where. Will we be posting here or under pictures? Just planning ahead. I may have to stay up until midnight so I can post it first?!!! LOL Boo, do I win if I'm first? :lol:

    All excellent questions, and I am certain all will be made clear in time. I trust Boo implicitly!

    (My block is now...4/7ths done! ...and a little bit. It's going to need some Serious Ironing before posting!)

    Tomorrow is the mass-posting day for our blocks. I reckon who-ever wakes up first will start a new topic in the pictures area?

    Are we supposed to post our blocks right away in the morning or is there a certain time slot?

    I will start a posting in the Pictures page for the blocks before I turn in tonight. We have a very short list of those available for QUILTO, so will postpone the game until April 1st. That is a Sunday and our regular chat time. I waited until today to decide, as I was hoping to get more involved. Rain or shine we will play Quilto on Sunday April 1st. We can call it Quilter's Fools Day! We will start playing at 3pm EDT. Please continue to PM me with your emails and I will send out lists of words for the game.

    The posting of pictures will continue as before on National Quilting Day. Sunday morning, I will draw three names from the posted pictures and post the winners at the end of the Pictures thread. The winners need to PM me with their snail mail addy, so I can send out the prizes.

    I have plenty of prizes, so those who haven't contacted me to play QUILTO may wish to do so for Sunday, April 1st. Lets have a great turnout and lots of fun. Did I mention prizes???????? :lol:
