Today is the day that celebrates our love of fabric, cutting it up, then putting it back together again! I had a love for quilting LONG before I ever got to sew any of it ... I used to get up at 5am so I could watch Simply Quilts with Alex Anderson on HGTV. Those were the days of GOOD TV! I would watch in amazement at how beautiful these projects of love would turn out! And I always thought... one day, when I retire, I'm gonna learn how to quilt!
When I moved to Missouri in 2005, I came Missouri, where I only knew 2 people, and we were 20 miles apart. We moved to the country so I didn't have neighbors for quite a long time, and it was hard to get to know people. So I just delved into my computer and decided that I would figure out this quilting stuff. That's when I found the HGTV.com Quilting Message Forum, and my life has been forever changed!
SO ... in honor of International Quilting Day ... let's look at some quilts! These are the LATEST ADDITIONS to the Ronald McDonald House Charities Quilt Raffle, that will happen at the Circle of Friends Retreat in Branson this September! I hope you're coming!!!
