Happy Worldwide Quilting Day!

Happy Spring!

Happy Worldwide Quilting Day!

Today we celebrate quilters all around the world!  I love to learn about quilters from all different areas of our planet. Often you can find their work on Instagram or Pinterest or blogs.  I know a lot of websites are having special events so you can google to find more about that!   I thought I would just post a few articles I found interesting and that you might enjoy!
