Blogger's Quilt Festival - 13 days and counting

Hi Friends! With just under two weeks left until Blogger's Quilt Festival I'm excited to get things started!

The Blogger's Quilt Festival is for quilters of any genre, or skill level - no matter your style we want to see your work!! The Blogger's Quilt Festival is timed around Quilt Market especially for those of us not able to make that pilgrimage to Houston, but if you go to market you are still welcome too :)

So pick a quilt to showcase, just one, and be thinking about the story that goes with it. What did you learn, what did that project help you through, or to overcome. Did you make it for someone special, or to raffle off at an important event?

And there are lots of prizes to win too! I have a great group of generous sponsors, all happy to inspire and give fabulous bundles! (If you are interested in joining the ranks of sponsors - Email me - I will get details to you right away!)

While you are deciding which quilt to showcase, I need a little help! Grab a button and help me spread the word --

(You will have to click over from your reader to get the code!)
Tell all your friends and be ready for a quilt overload from your computer chair. I'm excited to see what everyone has to share this time around!

Happy weekend~
Amy


Graphic design by my sweet friend Amy - Thanks Amy!!

You're a star for organising all this, it's such fun :)

Hi Amy,

I'm eager to participate in this again. You'll be posting the directions of what to do again, won't you?

You are a doll for organizing this. Hopefully I'll get a sunny day soon to photograph the quilt I'm going to showcase.

Hugs

I'm so glad you're doing this again! I got so many great ideas last time and I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with this time, too!!!

Jackie said...

Hi Amy, I got your e-mail and have added it to my blog side bar. I will also promote it in my October newsletter and Podcast. Looking forward to the festival!

Erin said...

Hi Amy!

I'm hoping to have my very first quilt done in time for this, as well as *finally* get my blog live. Thank you for putting this on!

Amy said...

Thanks for the nod on the design - I'm glad everyone likes the button! I think it came out great (if I do say so myself).

This is going to be such fun. Last time the concept was to post about our favorite quilt of all time - what is the 'criteria' this time? Favorite quilt we've made since last time? Favorite quilt of someone else?

Linda Augsburg said...

I just added the button to my blog. What do I need to do to join the fun? Stop by FarmGirlRootsCityGirlStyle.blogspot.com and let me know what my next step is. Can't WAIT to see everyone's creations!

Terriaw said...

Oh, I'm so excited.

I don't want to become a formal sponsor, but I do have some items that I'd like to donate. I'll contact you via email and send photos of what I'm thinking of. Just help keep me in line for deadlines.

dhblack said...

My friend thinks I need to enter one of my quilts but I don't know what to do. Can you give me a little more information. I have a quilt that I am just finishing that I would like to use I just have no idea how to go about it. I have never entered one of my quilts in anything before. It is kind of scary.
Thanks for any information you can give me!
