Do Something Quilty Today!

Today is International Quilting Day.

There is a lot of quilty stuff going on.  One of the things I am excited about is from The Quilt Show

Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims, hosts of The Quilt Show, have a great way for quilters, sewers and crafters to celebrate International Quilting Day.
You can see what is going on in today's quilting world.  Free access to over 140 of  shows of The Quilt Show has been opened.   This will run  through Sunday, March 17th.
Yes, I will be watching some shows! You (and I) can learn some amazing new techniques by watching The Quilt Show. 
There will be some  terrific prizes given away.  In addition to the Bernina machine I mentioned a couple of days ago there are other great prizes:
  1. AccuQuilt GO! package including a GO! Baby Fabric Cutter and AccuQuilt Dies autographed by Alex and Ricky
  2. C&T Publishing package including books, foundation paper, an Eco Tote, and Microfiber Cleaning Cloths
  3. A Deluxe Gammill Drafting Chair - perfect for longarm quilting.
  4. 5 - $100 Gift Certificates from Superior Threads
  5. A one-year membership to AQS and 6 of their popular books
  6. RJR fat quarter fabric palette ($450 value)
  7. And prize packages from Alex and Ricky
I Have been drooling over the fat quarter package from RJR  - I mean --well just look at this:
Yes I want this! 

SewCalGal is also hosting a virtual Sew-cial sponsored by Hoffman California Fabrics and Martingale. There are prizes.  Be sure to read the rules and abide by them. 

Do you have quilty plans for today? 
I am planning to trim and bind a wall quilt. And I am going to a party where I am giving a quilt as a present to a friend. 

If you are looking for more free video to learn things you can watch my videos on YouTube all year long. 
It is International Quilting Day - CELEBRATE!

Yep I am completely quilty today! First we have my Accuquilt Go! Club followed by Machine Quilting this afternoon - all quilting today ;-)

Wow, what a batch of fat quarters! What's not to want? You are an inspiration, but my sewing room is occupied by family. Perhaps my quilting day will be next week. ;)

I am going to a Quilt Guild meeting today, were I will be taken a quilt lesson with Linda (Eat, Sleep, Quilt) having some pictures take of my quilts and just having fun with the girls.

I just love that FQ collection! No shows for me as I have three quilts lined up for FMQ on my domestic machine - simple quilting (utility) so they are ready for donation.

I think that Im going to build some tools -- a portable design wall and a quilt frame (Yes, I saw the TQS episode with Joe the Quilter)... YOU bet I'm taking advantage of the free weekend!!!!

SewCalGal said...

Oh how I hope you when that bundle of fat quarters. They look to have your name written all over them.

Hope you have a wonderful day too! I'm having fun quilting and visiting everyone attending my virtual sew-cial.

I have been packing all day, but I think I will go watch some shows for a while. Thanks for the reminder. Have fun today!

Nita said...

Yes, wouldn't it be wonderful to win something big like that?!

Hi Gene! I'm finally back in business with the computer and can post again. Whew! That was close. As for quilting or sewing, I did manage to make two cute mug rugs and I'll be giving away this Thursday and the next.
Take care and have a great rest of the weekend!!
