Happy National Quilting Day

Or International Quilting Day!

Did you spend the day doing anything quilty? I was supposed to go to a guild meeting but was a little under the weather this morning and so I didn’t make it. But I did get the binding on two quilts- yes, TWO! 


But, as I posted the other day, I made an adorable zippered bag for the swap at guild. Now I have a poor little bag that missed the party!

So what to do?

I am thinking a GIVEAWAY. Sound good?


So… if you like my little bag, leave a comment on this post about what you did for National Quilting Day and you will be entered in the giveaway for this cute little bag. And if it wasn’t something quilty, that’s OK too.

Contest will end Monday night … oh wait, maybe I should make it Tuesday night in case your St Patty’s Day celebrations keep you away from your computer. OK. Tuesday March 18th is the deadline. 9pm MDT.

Giveaway is closed! Thank you for entering. Winner is:  Anne Cowan! I will be emailing you shortly for your snail mail address.

happy quilting!

Happy St Patrick’s Day!



  1. Cute bag! I made a crib sheet and a receiving blanket as a gift and attended a baby shower today. Thank you for the chance to win your little bag. I hope you are feeling better.

    I love that little bag. It would be just right for hand work supplies for the car. I have been working on a quilt that I got off Quiltmaker blog a couple of years ago. I had it cut out, in fact, two cut out and I promised myself this year would be a finishing year for as many UFOs as possible. Thank you for offering such a gracious giveaway. Anyone who wins it will be very lucky indeed!

    I love the bag. I wish I could say I quilted on National Quilting Day, but I was crocheting a blanket for my newest granddaughter out of my late mother’s scrap yarn.

    I love the little babe, good for travel things! I sewed all day. It was great. First, taught a fabric bead class at my guild, then worked on a wedding quilt, then a quilt for a new museum opening in our town this summer. Busy, busy, but lots of fun!

  5. Love the bag, so cute. I am unfortunately moving my daughter this weekend, but did get in some free motion quilting when I got home.

    I spent the day finishing up blocks for a quilt I started as a Christmas present and got them in to a top! Woo hoo! Now it is in the “to be quilted” pile and off my table.

  7. Gwen Wehner says:

    Adorable bag! I spent the day pulling fabrics for a quilt for a nephew’s graduation this year, and binding a baby quilt. Thanks for the chance to win!

  8. Anne Cowan says:

    Wow! I won. I am so excited. Although my comment said I loved the “babe”, I meant BAG!! Darn autocorrect LOL! Can’t wait to see it! Thank you so much.
