International Quilt Day 2015

3 Comments

It is a great weekend to be a quilter!  It ‘s International Quilt Weekend!  It started with a Quilt Day in Kentucky, and from there went national then worldwide.  Read about the history HERE. There are special deals going on all over the web, and I collected a few for you.  We need a mini online quilt show too, so here are a few of mine, starting with my first miniature.

Hands down the very best deal out there is the free weekend for videos at The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims!  Click on the How Does this Weekend Work, and you go to a page where you can log in (if you are already on, and it is free to join if you aren’t), enter the contest for a Bernina 550QE, or lots of other prizes from Superior Threads, Innova, RJR Fabrics, Missouri Star, and more.  I have no affiliation with any of these companies, I just want to let you all know about the great prizes.  Then, you can watch more than 200 Quilt Show videos for free this weekend!  I guarantee quilt overload in a hurry, so choose wisely!

Want some more online quilt show inspiration?  Check out the National Quilt Museum website, there are some wonderful pictures there.  You can also see the searchable database at The Quilt Index, even more inspiration there.  The International Quilt Study Center and Museum has an online exhibition.  The National Quilt Collection, part of the Division of Home and Community Life’s Textile Collection at the National Museum of American History, has wonderful historical videos on their collection on youtube.

If you are wondering why I chose these quilts to show you, it is because I am entering all three of them in the NC Quilt Symposium quilt show in May 2015.

OK, so you have some money burning a hole in your pocket, this is a good weekend for quilt related sales.  There’s a Try Me sale this weekend at Superior Threads. Martingale Books is having a Flash Sale, $6 ebook titles this weekend only.  And, Fat Quarter Shop is having a sale now too.  Just had to tell you!  And is there ever a time when we don’t want new fabric?  Well, unless you are Stashbusting.  One of my favorite places to shop online is Connecting Threads, and they are having a sale this weekend too.

So what am I going to do this weekend?  Why, quilt of course!!  Working on the Scrap Dance Mystery Quilt Along quilt!

Are you celebrating International Quilt Weekend?

  1. good morning, oh I really love the last quilt and the blue fish too cute–I did not realize this was international qult weekend-thanks

  2. I love your mini quilt.

  3. Your quilts are beautiful and the veggie one adorable. Can you recommend any threads to try. I always use king tut and so fine on the long arm and have been looking for a thread to order for piecing and some new threads to “play” with on the long arm.
