Every year quilters celebrate the 3rd Saturday of March as National Quilting Day. I will be hanging a few quilts outside my house today and have invited my neighbors to do likewise.
I learned years ago that many people warm feelings and good memories about quilts and quilters in their lives. When I was still making bed quilts I kept a loaded quilting frame in my large living room. It was quite a conversation piece. Everyone who came in the front door had a quilt story.
Quilts bring comfort. If we ever needed comfort it is now. So I encourage you, whether you are a quilter or not to celebrate National Quilting Day. Hang a quilt or two outside, visit a quilt show or a quilt shop, try your hand at a little quilting yourself or wrap up in Grandma’s quilt and enjoy the memories.
