Quilt Qwazy Queens Blog Hop

I do hope you all had a wonderful Christmas,
with lots memories made!
Now that the shopping, wrapping, cleaning and cooking are done,
it's time to focus on what's next.
Worldwide Quilting Day is March 21st.
It's a day to celebrated quilt makers around the globe.
We can "drool" over their talents, admire their love of  the art, 
and realize just what an incredible community, quilters are.

2020 starts a new decade, and I say...new decade, new attitude.
 I can't think of a better way to ring it in, than with a big ole 
Everyone can use a little laughter in their day.
"Psychology Today" says "laughter just might  be the most contagious
of all emotional experiences. What's more, it is full-on 
collaboration between mind and body.
The Benefits of Laughter...
Although laughter is not generally under voluntary control, "yukking" it up has numerous health benefits. Bouts of laughter can boost the immune system, relax muscles, aid circulation and protect against heart disease. They abet mental health, too. Laughter can lower anxiety, release tension, improve mood and foster resilience. Of course laughter also enriches social experience, by strengthening relationships, helping to defuse conflict, and allowing people to successfully operate as a team. The benefits of laughter, for both bodies and minds, show that contagious convulsions are anything but frivolous.

 Laughter and quilting have a lot of similarities, don't you think?
So with that being said...
This year's "Quilt Qwazy Queens" Worldwide Quilting Day's theme is
"Making Us Laugh".

The rules are simple...
Make something "quilty" that will..."Make us Laugh".
Share in a post on your assigned day with a list of your fellow blog hoppers.
You could do a tutorial, or share a pattern, have a give away or not have one.
It's totally up to you. Visit every one's blog during the hop and leave your sweet comments.
Those really do make us smile!
