National Inspire Your Heart with Art Day

Art ~ it inspires even as it makes you think. Art pulls at the emotions and seldom leaves you unmoved. From brush strokes to fabric, whatever the medium, art is beautiful!

Check out these wonderful artists and their art!

The patchwork pattern is "Around the World." It's hand-quilted on the diagonal with a heart in one corner, something she does on all of her quilts. Kathi wrote a post about it here:
Her blog is Oak Hill Homestead where she hopes to inspire readers with stories of a simple, self-reliant life.
