Kiss me, I'm a quilter.

Froggy quilt, I: Yellow Frog.

Whoops! We had some technical difficulty here. In the meantime, National Quilting Day was yesterday. Now, you could have spent the day drinking green beer and looking for the end of the rainbow, but really - we know you were quilting, right?

This year's special project is once again to make "birth day" quilts, in honor of National Quilting Day's "birthday." Follow the link to find out more, but the basic idea is just: have fun, make a baby quilt, and donate it to a local hospital. The National Quilting Association also suggests you might combine your holidays and make a St. Paddy's themed baby quilt, but really, there are no rules.

Now, we realize the day itself is past, but: "The third Saturday in March is officially designated as National Quilting Day, but quilters are flexible and we love a celebration - especially when fabric is involved - so over the years, observance of National Quilting Day has unofficially been expanded to the whole month of March!"

And hey - it's a baby quilt; they don't take that long, right? (Never mind the baby quilt that's been on my sewing table for a month now; I trust y'all are more organized than I am.)

Have fun! And hey, if you do make a NQD baby quilt, maybe send us a link to a photo of it.
