National Quilting Day 2010

Tomorrow is National Quilting Day, and am I ever ready for it! 

It's been stressful at work this week and as I wrote earlier, I've had a lot of busy evenings, too.

So I'm really looking forward to celebrating this important event in style. 

This is a picture I've posted before.  It is a "Whackie Girl" quilt that I made from William Morris fabrics as a gift for a friend a couple of years ago.  I'm thinking it is getting near time to do another "Whackie Girl."

Happy National Quilting Day!

Celebrate by having a "Whackie Weekend", my friend!

LOVE IT! You do know that you are our very favorite Wacky Girl. It's interesting how you took a technique that produce a REALLY wild and wacky quilt (like the beauties on Wanda's site) and tamed it with the more restrained fabrics. It's joyful, and a bit humerous, but still has that William Morris refinement.

I am celebrating National Quiting Day by picking up my new sewing table and working on some Farmer's Wife blocks.

I like your Whackie Girl! And what's not to love about William Morris (one of my design aesthetic heroes). Enjoy your weekend. Wish I was ready to spend it quilting!
