I do believe that Saturday, March 21st, was World Quilting Day.
Three, two, one, QUILT!!! And so I did.
March = 3 and then 2 + 1 for 21 - get it?

This came across my FaceBook page last week. I think it is pretty appropriate:
Quilting and playing with fabric is therapy for me. I used to feel guilty about having more fabric than I could ever hope to use up. Fabric is expensive though, and 99% of mine was purchased when it was on sale at deep discounts. In a few years I won't be able to afford to spend $11 or more per yard, for fabric! This is my way of saving for my retirement. I keep what I love and can use. I make quality charity quilts and pillowcases with fabric that I just don't want anymore. Nothing wrong with that!
I recently took advantage of a huge sale and bought a bunch of fabric. It arrived here in a box that looked like this:
After all the fabric was washed and dried I started folding it up in order to put it into my storage area. As I worked on folding I noticed this yellow fabric:
|Those dark marks are not supposed to be on there!|
|I don't know if you can tell but it went through all four layers of fabric!|
St. Patrick's Day was last week. I found this cute shamrock picture and want to use it for an appliqué block someday. Trouble is, I can't find out who the artist is that made it! I want to give credit where credit is due, if I can. When I get ready to start actually making this, I will try one more time to find the artist so that there are no issues down the road. OR perhaps I will use this design as inspiration to design my own clover.
I hope Spring arrived at your house. It is busting out all over the place here. If it would dry up enough, we could mow already this year! In the meantime, I hope you are enjoying a bit of sewing this weekend. Till next time, Happy Sewing!
