Dons' musings about O Fallon Mo : National Quilting Day

National Quilting Day

National Quilting Day

National Quilting Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in March.

Baby QuiltNational Quilting Day celebrates fabulous quilts and those who make them.  Definitely a ladies hobby, (although I have heard that there are some men that enjoy this hobby too) quilting is a skill that produces warm and beautiful results.

Today is a day to recognize and appreciate the quilt makers, the skill and the warm and the results.  If you are a quilt maker, spend a minute to recognize and appreciate that you have been blessed with a special skill.  If you are not a quilt maker, wrap yourself into a quilt and enjoy the warmth.

So what’s the origin of "National Quilting Day"?  I am glad you asked………….
……….The National Quilting Association started National Quilting Day in 1991. Their members passed a resolution at the 22and Annual Show in Lincoln, Nebraska, on June 1991……….

Good morning, Don. I could never get into quilting. But then, each to their own I reckon...

Don...

You know my wife and I were just talking the other day and wondering when "National Quilting Day" was for this year!

Michael,

I tried it once and kept sticking my fingers with the darn needle.

James,

After constantly sticking my fingers with the needle I gave it up for Lent and haven't gone back to it.
