Quilters are always looking for a reason to buy more fabric or use up some of their stash while enjoying one of their favourite things to do, and what better way is there than to celebrate a special day by making a quilt. Broken down by the month, fifty-three artists from seven states share 72 original wall-hangings that were made to celebrate some of the lesser-known "holidays" throughout the year: World Braille Day, National Tooth Fairy Day, National Crayon Day, Reach as High as You Can Day, Paper Clip Day, Hug Your Cat Day, National Hot Dog Day, Middle Child's Day, National Coffee Day, It's My Party Day, Button Day, and Bathtub Party Day. Learn where the ideas came from and what techniques were used to make these amazing, inspirational quilts. The artists had a great time creating unique wall-hangings with personal connections, and you can too!
