Quilt Festival - Fall 2009



Welcome, welcome! I'm so excited to have you here for the festival! Make sure that you are comfortable, there are so many beautiful quilts to inspire and awe you. When I hosted the Spring Festival I was blown away by the vastness of this online community, and all the talent too! This installment is bound to be just as exciting and fun, with new friends made too. I need to start with a big THANK YOU to the sponsors - check them out on the right, and later in this post too! Each sponsor has generously offered a piece of their shop/business, please take a few moments to click over to each one as they all have something different to offer.
Do you have a quilt to showcase? Excellent! Here's what you need to do -- 1. Go write a post about your quilt. 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! 2. Once you have posted on your blog, come back here with a link to that post. Not just your blog, click on the title of your post and get a link to that specific post. 6 months later there have been lots of readers clicking through links from the Spring Festival daily, if you post just to your blog they will not be able to find your Festival Entry. 3. Insert your name and url in the Mr. Linky. 4. Leave me a comment to be entered in to the giveaways. I'm curious to know where you are from, could you please add your general location to your comment!? Thanks! 5. Now go check out all the other entries! Leave encouraging comments wherever you land, enjoy making new friends and be inspired. 6. If you are on flickr, consider adding your entry to the Group Pool, it's great to see all the quilts in the gallery.

Hi All! I have posted my Fall Quilt for Blogger's Quilt Festival on my Cottage Garden Quilter blog. It is a mostly wool crazy quilt with fabrics from the 40's and 50's. I think it is charming! I'm excited for the weekend to be here because I plan to get around to see plenty of quilts. I'll start as soon as I get home from work Friday afternoon.
Here is a link to my post:

I think this is the last step -- this is truly a wonderful idea - it's a gloomy day in southern Maine (about 15 miles north of Kennebunkport) so browsing the list will replace cuddling on the couch with the latest book. Thank you so much for providing a connection to the world of quilters.

jenn said...

Yay! I think I linked correctly. So excited to join the qult festival! I chose a quilt that I actually made last year, for the Nie Nie benefit sale. I had some oops along the way, but it taught me a lot about myself and why I do what I do.

I think I did it! Got my blog all set with pictures AND linked to Mr. Linky!!! Yeah! I see my name listed..#56, but I also notice 2 lists, so I could be wrong in thinking I'm right...LOL

tammiemarie said...

I just posted about my nana's quilt, and can't wait to get started reading everyone's entries! Oh, I'm in Kansas, about an hour from KC.

Tami @ Lemon Tree Tales said...

Oops, I had posted my link earlier this morning with Mister Linky and then didn't see it later. So I added it and now I notice that it's there twice on the second list - #7 and #49. Can you delete the #49 one please? Sorry about that.

It's really ELIZABETH E. from the OccasionalPiece blog and I wanted to say how fun it will be this weekend to go to an online Quilt Festival! Thank you, Amy, for posting this for us--I enjoyed the Spring Show very much.

I also enjoy the stories as well, so I hope that everyone's writing the story of their quilt, too.

Thank you, Amy, for hosting! I'm a newbie when it comes to quilting. I have a love of fabric and color, but I'm impatient when it comes to putting quilts together. *grin* I have six quilts in progress, but only two finishes -- Baby Dane is my offering for the festival. I'm from West Michigan, about 25 minutes north of Grand Rapids.

What a fun idea ! Our little town of Hohenwald, Tennessee, is having Oktoberfest this weekend, and I found that it is just too much looking for a parking space, and walking all over creation........but this virtual festival is perfect !
Thank you for the idea.....congratulations on its success, and thank you also, for including my link and quilt !

Really easy to do this year - thanks for the extra directions on using the perma link for the right day's posting.
