HAPPY NATIONAL QUILT DAY today!  I have been rummaging around the world wide web seeking out places that are interesting with contests and new quilt designs dreamed up especially to celebrate the auspiciousness of this day. 

IT SEEMS likely you know all about National Quilt Day but, if you don't, then here is a wonderful site that explains it all for you.  It is an important day for many quilters, and as you can tell from the numerous sites all welcoming this day its quite exciting and very interesting. 

Pat Sloan has a Contest up and running - head on over to her blog site and check it out I love the her new fabric line...."LIBERTY" wow eye popping and so creative.  Her blog and podcasts and web-site is chock a block full with so much interesting information, articles, various interests and how she does all of this is a wonder to me, I have trouble with just staying as current blogging myself never mind the 1001 things Pat gets up to.  She is my all time most prolific and favorite blogger.  

Pat Sloan
 E-How explains National Quilt Day and expresses a lot of wonderful ideas on how to celebrate with other quilters today very timely and with nifty ideas 

The National Quilting Association has a wonderful synopsis of this auspicious day too, interesting!!! 

Sherida Warner  of the DAILY SENTINEL wrote an interesting article with information, a story and interesting links including a design contest.

I too am celebrating NATIONAL QUILT DAY with the use of my sewing machine, fabrics from my stash to finish a Birthday gift I had begun the other day.  Matching seat belt covers for her vehicle.

IT is a day that is relegated to the process of Quilting and Quilters alike.  We are a united front and more in numbers than I believe anyone really knows of.  It would be so interesting to know the number of QUILTERS in the whole wide world, wouldn't you find that interesting.  

IF your reading me today then blessed are we alive and well and still above ground.  My wish for you is a wonderful and FRIENDTASTIC DAY today.
