Happy National Quilting Day...



How are you celebrating National Quilting Day today? I am off to a local quilt show and shopping the vendors... Yea, I know...I am lucky.

To keep you busy I thought I would share the link to Heather Bailey's blog and her tutorial on how to knot your thread... I am not a redwork purist. Since the majority of my redwork ends up in quilts, I knot my thread at the beginning and the end. I know! I shouldn't, but I do...
Of course this knot also works for hand sewing, etc...

I will be back Sunday with some quilt pictures.

Happy Sewing,
Nancy

Enjoy your time at the quilt show. I bet you will come back with photos that will make me want to start another quilt.

I didn't know about National Quilting Day but I celebrated by buying a rather large amount of quilt fabric today. Just think how much I would have bought if I had known it was a holiday!

Yes I learned that knot trick last year.
For National Quilt Day I attended the Missouri Blacksmith Association meeting in Malta Bend Mo with the hubby.

NQD huh? Hmmm didn't know there was such a thing--although there's a "national" day for just about everything else! But I WAS working on the quilt blocks for the swap that day.
