March 15 is National Quilt Day this year. In fact it has been extended to the whole month of March!
I am still a fairly new quilter, so I don't have much in the way of quilts to show you. You can see my Dear Jane quilt blocks at Webshots. I haven't worked on this one much for some time and need to get back to it--soon! I am learning so much from this quilt. It will have well over 5000 pieces in it when I finish it--I consider it my quilt college. Click on the rows to see the blocks I've finished so far......

In case you're not familiar with what a Dear Jane quilt is then click HERE to find out more. It's a reproduction of a Civil War quilt by Jane Stickle that has been revived by Brenda Papadakis.
In honor of National Quilt Day/Month I hope you'll either sew up a block, quilt a few stitches, go shopping at your LQS and buy up lots of fabric or buy a new quilting tool, book or pattern or better yet, share your quilting talent with someone else and keep the circle growing!
Below are a few links to some of my favorite free quilt patterns online. Enjoy and Happy Stitching!
