It's National Quilting Day, and we quilters should be celebrating this great "holiday" for those with lodes of patience to start and finish a quilt...any quilt! I think we are, but not at a show (bummer!), or a shop, or gathering with friends who sew. But due to technology, I am super thankful that my bee was able to "celebrate" our day by using the app: Zoom. It's free for 40 minutes of a "meeting" or meet up, and because we wanted to share, we did two 40 minute-ers (or close to it). Remember, there were five or six of us on the video chat, which gives everyone a chance to talk and share without worry. You can check it out here: https://zoom.us/
Once my chats were completed (another one with my SA group late in the afternoon), I needed to make only ONE block to finish this quilt (started in 2017) entitled: Scrap Soup with 2.5" Strips. I wanted to finish this scrap quilt due to the saying, especially in these trying times, "when life gives you scraps, make a quilt." I can't believe I let two years go by without making one dang block to finish it, but no longer, it's done!
BSoleille! The bright side of celebrating National Quilting Day however we can.
