Quilt Festival - Spring 2009

***The Quilt Festival is now closed and no longer accepting new links***

Welcome
to the first online Quilt Festival! I'm so glad you are here! Get a cup of coffee or tea and stay a while. There's lots to see and many places to visit. I look forward to getting to know all of you a little better this week!

First, I need to thank our generous sponsors - I emailed each of them this week and they have been enthusiastic to get involved. Thank You! Without your support this event would not be nearly as exciting! The sponsors are all listed on my right sidebar and I have a list of offerings a little later in this post. Be sure to do some shopping while blog hopping :)
----------------------------------------------

Here's how you get involved -
  • Select your favorite quilt, make sure you have a good picture of it and go post about it! It doesn't matter what size, style, or era it is from - there's no judging here :) In your post tell your quilt's story. Also be sure to link back here so your readers can join in the fun too! Everyone is welcome - international readers that's you too!
  • Once you have posted on your blog come back here with your link to that post - I'm hoping that this list can be a reference and future source of inspiration for many, long after this week is over.
  • Insert your name and url in the Mr Linky.
  • Leave me a comment to be entered in the giveaways.

I’ve posted about my favourite quilt. Linked etc.

Thanks for this fun event.
favorite prize: the Woodland Bloom fat quarters

Aunt Spicy said...

What a fun idea! I posted one link, but there are actually three related blog posts:

1. http://auntspicy.blogspot.com/2008/05/heirloom-part-i.html
2. http://auntspicy.blogspot.com/2008/05/heirloom-part-ii.html
3. http://auntspicy.blogspot.com/2008/05/heirloom-part-iii.html

The posts are older, but about my grandmother and other relatives unfinished quilts...which mean more to me than anything I have made.

Favorite Prize, fabric of course! But I would love to try Tanya Whalens Darla collection!

Rita said...

Hi Amy, Thanks for organizing the Bloggers Quilt Festival. I have added my post of my favorite quilt and have added my link. I am enjoying checking out other blogs and their fav. quilts! Thanks again! Rita

Kritta22 said...

Andi said...

Thanks so much for organising.
I'm looking forward to visiting all the lovely quilts.
I have added myself as a link but have posted again since.
So, I thought it would be good to change my link to take people to the correct post:
http://patchandi.blogspot.com/2009/04/bloggers-quilt-festival.html
How do I do that?
Andi ;-)

Emma said...

Cool idea. I just missed out on seeing our national quilt symposium, so this is a good substitute. It's a great way to check out a few more inspirational blogs.

Clare said...

Posted and linked. Will try to access Flickr later.

I think this is a marvellous idea. Thanks for organising it.

Have put it on Facebook and Twitter.

Nadine said...

Sarah Ann Smith said...

Totally cool! I'm gonna play... I've got a blogpost scheduled for tomorrow, so how about I publish mine on the 20th, Monday. And, if you'd like, I'd be happy to donate a prize, too.... how about the pattern of their choice from my website (on of my patterns) plus two fat quarters of my hand-dyed fabric (my choice of fabrics)..... let me know if you 'd like another prize!

The best way to contact me is via my website or my regular e-mail: sarah (at) sarahannsmith (dot) com , eliminated the spaces and inserting the symbols...of course!

What fun, cheers, Sarah

kim r said...

I love this idea! I only have a blog that I use to follow my progress while I train for a triathlon with a charity group, but went ahead and posted my quilt there. What the heck!

Sequana said...

I hope this works. *S* I don't have a blog, so I linked to a pic on my flickr site. The pic is for the carrier I made for the quilt, and the actual quilt can be found with a couple clicks in that same set.

I can't wait to "walk around" the rest of the quilt show. Thx for doing this.

Boy, it's hard to pick one favorite prize. They are all great! I guess I'd go with the Fat Quarter Shop.

This is wonderful Amy, I can't wait to view all the other submissions. I always love to share the story of the quilt I made for my grandmother. She is so proud of it. She even took it to church for a showing.

Kama @ Today's Housewife said...

This is a great idea! I have only officially finished one quilt, but I have another in sandwich form and one other top done. I just started quilting in January, so I think it's so fun...when I get the chance...since I have a 6 month old son who doesn't let me do it too often anymore!!

Big Sky Paper and Design said...

Hi Amy:
What a wonderful idea you had to to this "Blogger's Quilt Festival" - thanks for taking the time - I am enjoying looking at all the quilts today with a cup of tea by my side. You can remove #92in Mr. Linky I made a mistake and entered my other blog there :) sorry! Have a great day!

I don't currently have a blog up and running so I can't participate that way. Can I still win a prize? If so, I would love one of the ones where I can pick my own fabric ($50 would be just great). I also like the Woodland Bloom fabric in the first giveaway.

Thank you. What a great idea. We don't even have to leave home for our own quilt show. I posted my favourite quilt that was done for a guild challenge.

Barbie said...

Thank you for organizing this! I had such a hard time choosing a favourite and in the end, I'm still not sure. My quilting has changed so much in the last 6 months since I've discovered the online quilt community. I hope you organize this again next year so that I can exhibit a quilt that I'm happier with. I've got several on the go but nothing finished yet! I love to read your blog...

melissa s. said...

wow, amy. what an amazing success!! thank you for organizing. looks like i have a weekend full of quilt-viewing ahead of me (have a good one yourself!)

Michelle said...

I just got the story of my quilt posted. Now I can't wait to go see what everyone else has done -- you came up with a great idea!

Patty said...

Hi,

I think having an online quilt fest is such a great idea. Seeing what others do is so inspiring!

If I am lucky enough to win one of the prizes, fabric would be great.

Cassie said...

Fun stuff, Amy. I'm embarassed to admit that I don't have a quilt to share. If I win one of those fabulous prizes, I might be inspired to whip one up though. Thanks for all the fun. I'm linking like crazy!

~Cassie

katelnorth said...

Fun idea - I had a hard time picking just one quilt to show...

I've posted my first grandchild quilt. It holds a special place in my heart.

Hi. It's so awesome that you put this together. I hope I win something so that I'll have fabric to make quilts (so much inspiration linked up there!). I'd love the Amy Butler Tree Peony Fabric, but really I'd love any fabric (or related item!). :)

Gene Black said...

I have such a hard time picking favorites. So I picked "the first" as my favorite and blogged about it one more time.
I would love to win any of the fabric cuts. (I am building a stash-and I think I am fabric addicted.)

lollydo said...

I loved your ideas SO much I created a blog just to participate! This is so friendly and FUN! Thank you, thank you for organizing the event. Tomorrow I am making my best friend participate. l

I was on my way to uploading a picture of my favorite quilt when I read about your favorite brownie recipe...what to do?!?! Quilt or Brownie?!?! Well, the brownie won out...it's baking...and the house smells terrific and MAYBE, if I don't go into a diabetic coma, I'll still be able to post my quilt...if not, you'll know the brownie did me in...but I will have gone happy!! Truly, if this brownie tastes as good as it smells...well...just know my thighs thank you in advance because that's where those brownies will end up!!! xo, Nan

I posted about my favorite quilt. Thank you so much for organizing this quilt show. I am having such a good time checking out all of the fabulous quilts.

Thank you for sponsoring, organizing such a warm and friendly event! I confess that I created a blog just to participate. It is the closest thing to showing a quilt I will ever get! I am sorry if I double commented - still getting the hang of the blogging community!

Melanie said...

This is so neat! I don't have a blog to post my favorite quilt (and i only have a few under my belt anyway) but just wanted to say i am loving all the inspiration! (rphmel30@yahoo.com)

What a fun idea to have an on-line show. I can't wait to page though the other pictures. I haven't been quilting as much as I usually do so this should help me get back into the groove.

What a great idea. I think it is going to take me a while to go through all the quilts that are posted, but it will be fun doing that. Thanks for doing this.

Thanks for organizing this!! I entered the first quilt I ever completed - an 80" x 80" Trip Around the World. I've loved taking a trip down memory lane!

Oh gosh - this is wonderful! What an amazing collection of quilts and fantastic stories of their creation to go alongside. I can see me spending many an hour enjoying these pictures, stories and blogs. I am very new to quilting and have not yet completed my first quilt - (only a quilt top) so cannot yet join in the fun - mabye next year! Thank you for organizing and thank you to everyone who has contributed with a quilt.

Thought I'd let you know, there seems to be a blogger 'flowers' leaving what seems to be the same spam comment with an unrelated link on a lot of these posts.
