Things to Do Over International Quilting Weekend 2023

National Quilting Day is this Saturday, March 18, 2023, but here at The Quilt Show, we like to celebrate all weekend long.


Here are some things you can do to celebrate as well.


Display a Quilt - Just like last year, Alex suggests you hang a quilt outside your home and fly your "quilt flag" for the world to see. Take a photo of your hanging quilt and post it on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #TQSQuiltsOutside. (If it's raining, just take a photo inside your home.) We will pick two winners from random to each win a fabulous gift basket.




Visit a Quilt Museum in Person or Online  - There are plenty of them and many can be visited virtually.


International Quilt Museum - University of Nebraska-Lincoln - Click here for experiences.

San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles - Current exhibit is Quilt National '21.

National Quilt Museum - Paducah - Click here to take a look at upcoming exhibits.

Make a Quilt for a Cause - Perhaps your local shelter needs quilts, check out pre-natal care units, Project Linus, or ABC Quilts, or watch Ricky's interview with Ukrainian quilter Maria Nelga and make some Cranes for Ukraine blocks with Ricky's Paper Piecing Pattern. The pattern is for a 6" block and can be resized to any size. Get the download here.




Document Your Quilt - Click here for three easy ways to do that from the Quilt Alliance.

Enter a Contest or Exhibition - For example, The Texas Quilt Museum invites you to submit images of up to three quilts for their 2023 juried exhibition All Creatures Great and Small. - Click here to learn more.


Share Your Skills - Take that little one by the hand and show them how to thread a needle, take a stitch, or just play with arranging fabric. Watch Show 2809 - Learn How to Teach Your Kids to Quilt and Mixed Media Project with Dee Christopher for tips


Check out a new Sewing Machine - BERNINA is having a huge sale through the end of March.
