Happy Women's Day!

Happy Women's Day to all women!

Today, March 8th is International Women's Day!

It is a very big holiday in Bulgaria. The tradition sees men honouring their mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues, etc. with flowers and small gifts.
I just found out that The United States even designates the whole month of March as 'Women's History Month'.

I hope everyone will have a nice day and celebrate!

This is a photo of a quilt I took at Quilt Fest in NJ. The quilt is made by Kathy Dowie from Richmond, Illinois.
The vase and the orchid were stitched using thread painting technique and appliqued to the background.

I will post more pictures of the Quilt Fest later, stay tuned...

Happy Women's Day to you Zlaty and Happy belated Birthday too! The quilt is beautiful so many talented quilters "out there."

Happy Woman's Day to you too. Thanks for sharing all this information with us.

I like the quilt picture of the flowers in the vase. Perfect to get us in the Spring mood to start a spring quilt or to finish one we started long time ago.

Can not wait to see more quilt show pictures. I love seeing quilts from different States.
