Worldwide Quilting Day / International Quilting Day (weekend) Celebration

I’m celebrating Worldwide Quilting Day / International Quilting Day (weekend) by spending time this weekend quilting, watching episodes of TQS, doing some quilty shoping, as well as some much needed blog organization to catch up on behind the scenes blogging tasks (e.g shipping prizes, prepping for giveaways, prepping for the April FMQ Challenge,  etc.).  Of course, I’m hoping you’ll join me for some virtual celebration this weekend, as well as enter to win some prizes I’m hosting for sponsored giveaways.  I also want to share insights with you on some freebies, amazing sales, and irresistible giveaways too!


To kick this party off,FREEBIES and GIVEAWAYS are always fun:

Urban Threads: for those that enjoy machine embroidery (or know someone who does), Urban Threads has a super cute FREE design:



The Quilt Show


The Quilt Show hosted by Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims, will open all of its shows from the first nine series– shows 100-1513 –for the entire weekend. This means that, for three special days, everyone will have the chance to view over 200 shows, featuring some of the quilting world’s leading artists, for FREE. 

There are also many amazing prizes!

Spring Sales:  There are many amazing sales this weekend.  Highlights can be found at Fingertip Shopping.  But I do want to heighten awareness that Martingale has a great Spring Sale on eBooks, as well as a sale on physical books and ePatterns.

Did I Mention I’m hosting a Sponsored Giveaway?

I’m hosting a giveaway for WW followers only and I’ll be randomly selecting winners late Sunday.

Thank you to Martingale for sponsoring this giveaway.

An email will be sent to five lucky winners late Sunday to confirm they want to claim their prize. I’m a firm believer good karma flows to those that pass on claiming a prize they really do not want, and they will one day win some thing that they will want. These are physical books, which I will pay to ship to winners, thus I prefer to ship to a winner who really wants to win the specific prize and will be excited when it arrives!.  Winners will have 24 hours to claim their prize, or another name will be selected.

Want to win a prize?

While there are several ways to enter to win, you must be a blog follower that can be validated.  Must requirements to enter is one or more of the following options.

– RSS/Email feeds

You can also sign up for either/both of the above options, but for RSS/Email feeds be sure to check your email (even your spam folder) as you’ll receive an email message where you’ll need to validate you signed up.

There are a variety of ways for extra options, including using the hashtag #CreativeGoodness by sharing one, or more photos, on Instagram, Twitter, and/or Facebook showing what you are quilting this weekend.  Think of it as a #CreativeGoodness bomb on social media.  And sharing is a great way to join this virtual sew-cial and celebrate International Quilting Day / Worldwide Quilting Day (weekend).
