Happy National Quilting Day 2009


The National Quilting Association is devoting this year to the Home. They have created a free project, Welcome Home, to honour National Quilting Day.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day filled with lots of quilting.

I will be celebrating in spirit this year. Instead of quilting I’ll be playing dolls, colouring or baking a cake (?) with my 3 year old niece, making funny faces at my 4 month old niece and celebrating my “baby sister’s” 30th birthday. Where did the years go, I have no idea. Happy Birthday (tomorrow) lil sis!

See last year’s NQA block.

Update from Lucy:

“You’re going to see Auntie Schell tomorrow.”
“Yay! I so excited to see my Auntie Schell.”
“Auntie Schell is a good girl.”

Good to know I’m a good girl! haha

  1. In the instructions of Wecome Home 2009 Quilt, It des not tell the finished size of the quilt. What is the finished size? The library is sponsoring out newly organized club and want to donate this quilt in 2010 for National Quilt day. Could you send further instructions. thanks Betty

    Hi Betty,

    I don’t know, you’ll need to contact NQA directly to ask them. It’s their pattern, I just promoted it for them on my site.

    It’s about a 52″ square when finished. :)
