Posted: Updated:

LINCOLN, NE (WKOW)  --  Today marks the 25th anniversary of National Quilting day. 

The folks at the national quilting museum in Nebraska say it's a day to appreciate and to recognize quilt makers, along with all of their long labor, love and skill that goes into the making of each quilt.

National Quilting Day is observed annually on the third Saturday in March.  It is a day that is celebrated around the country with special quilting shows, classes, and open museum displays.   

The national observance was created when a resolution was passed at the 22nd annual show of the National Quilting Association in Lincoln, Nebraska in June of 1991.
