Blogger's Quilt Festival - Spring 2010





Welcome to the third Blogger's Quilt Festival!  I'm so glad that you are here - and I hope that you plan to enter a quilt in the Festival!  Everyone is welcome to participate, this is a relaxed festival with no judging, no gloves, and beverages are allowed, encouraged even!  :)

Many "Thank You's" go out to our sponsors!  They have been fun and gracious to work with in the weeks leading up to today.  And the prizes they are offering are so generous!  Be sure to visit each of the shops as you enjoy the show.  They each have a button to the right, and I have a list of prizes below the entries.

I have been so thankful to have my laptop while getting the details together this time around and I cannot wait to sit on the couch and take in all the inspiration!  I hope you have a comfy seat too - this may take a while.  


While you are blog hopping - let me know if you see a quilter you would like to see featured on my blog.  I plan to continue the Friday features after the festival and always need more nominations!


Are you ready!?  

To Participate : : 
1 - Write a new post (old posts will be deleted).  Share one quilt, and it's story.  Why you made it, why it is special to you, what you learned about quilting/yourself while making it.  The quilt doesn't have to be brand new, never seen before on you blog - show what you like!

2 - In your post link back to the festival (posts without a link will also be deleted).  You can do this with a button, just copy and paste the code into your post, if all else fails.

3 - Share a link to your post, in the mr linky - be sure to post to that specific post please.  Right click on your post title, to copy link address, then paste it in the linky.  

4 - Leave me a comment to be entered into giveaways.  Maybe you can tell me approximately how many quilts you have made so far.  Or if you finished a quilt just for the Festival.  Or how many quilts you have on your to do list.  It's fun to learn something about you as I read all the comments :)

5 - Visit all the other quilters sharing their quilts 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.





Please do not link up if you are not posting a specific quilt, also linking to etsy/ebay shops is not allowed. I reserve the right to delete links that are not within the guidelines above. Thanks!

If you happen to add an incorrect or dead link, please look for the smiley face next to your name/link and click on it, follow the instructions to delete the link and then post the correct link.  If all else fails - email me :)


The Fabulous Sponsors --

**But wait -- there's more!**

Thank you all for making this event a huge success!
-----

New button code -











this links back to this post instead of the info page.  Use it where ever you like!

-----
The Festival will be accepting links through next Friday, the 28th.  After that the linky will be closed and the links made permanent on this post.  Giveaway winners will be announced the following day.

I think that's everything!  I hope you enjoy the show :)

Amy

comfortstitching said...

Thank you for putting all this together again Amy, such a fun idea.

Errm.......I've lost count of how many quilts I've made so far, probably in the region of 30 or so!

My quilts to do list is probably about the length of a piece of string :P

Esther said...

Wonderful! I love this festival.... thanks Amy!

Enjoy the hopping and have a wonderful week!

emedoodle said...

Thanks for organizing this! I haven't entered previously but am glad that I heard about it in time this time around!

And to answer the questions... I've made four quilts total (two of them I don't really count since they were t-shirt quilts. I do have four quilts being worked on now... one that I'm absolutely in love with - but that I only started yesterday!

I'm so excited to learn more about everyone else's quilts!

Tina said...

I'm looking forward to checking out everyone's quilts! Thanks Amy!

I've been so looking forward to this, it's my first time! I didn't even know there was prizes :) Thanks so much Amy for organising this. Now I'm off to go blog hopping!!

Darla said...

Thank you for hosting this, Amy! This is my first time participating, and I'm very excited. I know I'm going to see some really amazing quilts. :-)

Kim said...

Thanks for hosting this quilt festival. Can't wait to go blog hopping. Well, I have made alot of quilts and haven't really kept track of them so I don't have a count. I do have one mini quilt I need to finish the top, but I think 5 to quilt and bind.

Mom on the Move! said...

So much fun - thanks!!! Humm, something interesting about myself. I'm heading to the states for a vacation and my shopping list for quilting is longer than my shopping list for anything else!!!

Mrs Moen said...

I'm linked up and ready to go. I'm really looking forward to this, last year's festival was so much fun!
I have made 450+ quilts (lots of small ones) and have 3 top WIPs I'm working on right now.

Marit said...

Amy, thank you for doing this again. I'm guessing I have made more than 50 quilts if a count the small ones in
; )

live a colorful life said...

I brought my laptop to an out-of-state wedding just so I could link up. So excited. Priorities.Hmmm...

whatktmadenext said...

It's my first time at the festival! I've only made 6 quilts so never really had anything to share until now!

The last two festivals have been great and I've seen so many wonderful quilts. Thank you so much for organising everything!

Dolly said...

Hooray !
I've been checking all evening and night for this to be ready !
Thanks for the virtual quilt show, Amy !
Praise be the the LORD ! Let's just stop right now and thank HIM for our creative abilities !

Kelli said...

Thanks for hosting such a great event! So glad I could join in this year!!! Gonna go put the kettle on and get ready to sit and check all these out! Yay!!!

Mary said...

I have linked my entry to the Blogger's Quilt Festival as directed. I've been waiting all day to post about my favorite quilt. Thanks Amy for the chance to share my Sylvia's Bridal Sampler quilt. I have many more that are still UFO's because I really worked intently on this quilt. I completed over 17 quilts last year, but my UFO's number in the hundreds.

Helen said...

A great festival as always Amy! Well done for hosting it!

Catherine said...

Thanks for organising this festival again Amy! Looking forward to seeing all the inspiring quilts out there. I have 2 quilt tops ready to quilt. Was hoping to get one of them done for this festival but will have to wait till next time.

Denise said...

Hi Amy, I am new to blogging but have been quilting for almost 30 years. When I saw your post earlier in the week, I was so excited to join this. Last night I remembered I could get my post together and then publish it first thing this morning before I went to my volunteer job. I didn't have to wait another day! YAY!
Thanks for doing this. It looks like FUN!
I'm off to save the world, one critter at a time. :-)

AJ said...

Thanks for hosting Amy!

I love looking at all the quilts!

bearpaw said...

So excited to be a part of this again! Thanks so much for all your hard work getting this organised. Have been racing to finish a quilt in time to include, so now I am going to take a deep breath and settle down to look at all the gorgeous quilts as they get added!

bearpaw said...

Too excited to read things properly. I think I must have made 40 - 50 quilts over the last 18 years - that doesn't seem very many compared to some people!

Carol at Serendipity said...

Amy,
Thanks so much for hosting this!

Carol

Emma said...

I'm in again! I've made 120 quilts and have about 30 currently on-the go, partially-designed, or waiting their turn - most of which (plus a number of new additions) should be done by the end of the year.

Trish said...

This should be fun. Have links set up, let's hope it works.

Lynne said...

Thank you Amy. This is really fun and is my first because I only started quilting in Feb so I am a baby but here's a festival where the remedial quilters like myself get a chance to sit alongside the royalty of quilting which is really cool. My favourite quilts are the ones that get properly used - dragged around the house by the kids, dragged into the garden to make a tent, slid on down the stairs, occasionally weed on (you know kids...). Now I am going to take my laptop into the sunny garden (rare for the UK) and take a stroll around the festival. Maybe see you there for a cup of coffee!

Bellgirl said...

I'm so excited- my first quilt festival! I've done my post and I can't wait to see the festival exhibitors! Thank you Amy.

Aunt Spicy said...

Thanks so much Amy! This is my third time participating and hands down my most favorite way to meet new bloggers and be inspired!

upstateLisa said...

thanks Amy for hosting the festival again! I can't tell you how many quilts I have made cuz I can't believe it has been about 17 years of quilting passion all ready! too many to count!

Leah said...

Thanks for hosting this again - great fun! It's not only fun to consider what I've made up that's meaningful, but also to realise how little I've actually finished this year (I guess it has really been about the process!)

CraftyMummy said...

Thanks for organising the BQF! This is my first time entering.

I've just finished this particular quilt but I have made around 10 quilts. I currently have a couple of tops waiting to quilt, a jelly roll quilt half pieced, and 2 baby quilts in progress as well. My list of quilts I want to make is long :)

One Flew Over said...

Thanks again for hosting Amy! I love looking at all the entry quilts, a fabulous and inspiring way to spend some time!

Victoria @ BUMBLE BEANS said...

thanks AMY for doing this again! You are Fabulous!!!

sunt said...

Epic is what you are for organising this with everything else you do! I've followed your blog since the last festival now and always find it full of interest!

I am so excited to participate this time now that I have a finished quilt (and half a dozen tops waiting to be quilted!)

Steffi´s Candy Quilts said...

Thank you Amy for doing this festival, it is always so much fun to see all the wonderful quilts.
Until now I finished around 15 big quilts, several wall hangings and pillows, and some very tiny quilts in 1/10 scale for my doll´s house.
And of corse I have a lot of UFOs. :-)

Mary said...

Hi Amy - First, I just want to say, "thank you" for once again putting this fabulous event together - I stayed up until midnight and then realized - duh! You're on MDT, not EDT - lol.

How many quilts have I made? Probably around 50. How about the "to do" list? Probably 30 (and I've probably already got the fabric for most of them - yikes!)

Jackie said...

Amy, Thanks for holding such a wonderful festival. Love to look at all the quilts!

Kriza said...

I have written my post, linked it, and now I am going to go and see and read about all the quilts of the others'! Thanks for your work again, Amy!

I haven't finished a new quilt for the Festival, but am sharing an old favourite :-) Recently I was working on a present for my sister, a bag, which can be seen in my blog.

Have a great weekend!

Valentina said...

Dear Amy, I only started visiting blogs a year ago, around the time you had the first BQF, and I was dazzled! Now a year later, with a fairly new blog, I cannot describe the thrill of being able to Thank YOU, and to be able to contribute my 2 cents.
I started quilting when we moved to Cyprus, as I could speak no Greek and was in a general state of shell-shock! And quilting slowly passed from being therapy, to being a way to make friends, to the point that now I teach patchwork and quilting at the island's only QS.
I have made many quilts, most of which have been gifts to loved ones and charity quilts. These days I hand-piece as it is more manageable with 3&4yr old boys! THANKS 4 Being such an INSPIRATION!

Rene' said...

Thanks Amy!!! Posted mine. Now going to see all the others!

Jenny said...

Thank you so much for hosting this fabulous event Amy. I can't wait to start browsing!

Bec Clarke said...

It was wonderful last year so I am back again with another quilt.
Thanks for a great festival

Kate said...

Thanks for hosting this. I really enjoy going through all the links and seeing what everyone has made.

Riel said...

I am so glad to be participating. This is a really great idea. Thanks for coordinating it! I got my rotary cutter for Christmas, 2009 and have been having so much fun since!

sewpam63 said...

This is simply AWESOME, Amy!!! Thank you for all the work, orginization and effort you put into this!!! I feel delighted to share in the Festival. : )

BTW, I incorrectly linked entry #65 to my Fall BQF post. I sent you an email about my mistake. If you could delete it I would be SEW grateful. I apologize for the inconvenience.

ENJOY the BQF!!!

kylydia said...

Yay! So excited!

bleuvanille said...

Thanks Amy for organizing this Festival! I just posted my link. My blog is in French and there's a translation widget. I'm a beginning quilter and the quilt I featured is my first one.

diplofam said...

Hi Amy, I tried to stay up late and be one of the first links but then I realized that you are in a different time zone :) I am linked and excited to look around at everyone else's quilts.
Thanks for organizing!

Busy Little Quilter said...

Hi, Amy! Thanks for organizing this! I wish I could tell you how many quilts I have made, but I have lost count!
I am looking forward to seeing everyone's quilts and reading their stories.

Nadine Saupe said...

All these wonderful blogs. thanks for organizing this Amy.

And as to your questions: I can't remember how many quilts I made, maybe around 20 or so, and given that they are all reversible quilts these days they should count twice, shouldn't they?

I am working on about 5 projects at the moment, as I do everything by hand the quilting takes me ages. But I have already cut the fabric for the next 2 quilts. It's an obsession that's for sure.

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Hi Amy! Thanks so much for encouraging us to enter even if we aren't accomplished quilters! Quilts are beautiful, functional works of art and I love to see what everyone has done!

Angie Padilla said...

Thank you for sponsoring this... how fun! For those of us in other countries it is a great way to network with other quilters. Greetings from a cold, rainy day in Quito, Ecuador!

BaileyGirl5 said...

Hi Amy! I'm so excited to be involved in the Blogger's Quilt Festival! It's one of the reasons I started a blog this year. I've been quilting for one year now and the second quilt I made was your zig zag quilt a long. It's proudly displayed on my quilt rack and a favorite around here for snuggling on the couch. Thanks for always being so inspiring.

Amy said...

Amy, thank you for hosting the quilt festival again. I enjoy it so much!

Anne at Film and Thread said...

I've got my cafe au lait here and I'm ready to start reading! Thank you for doing this because I have found so much inspiration and made lots of new blog friends through the quilt festival! It must be a lot of work to put on, but it is a weekend full of fun to see what everyone has made.

SheilaC said...

Amy, a redeemed sheep said...

Let me add my thanks!

I'm a newbie when it comes to the art of quilting and was very nervous about even thinking about jumping in, but I got over myself...{wink}

I shared one of my first quilts and it's one of my favorites.

I'm excited to see everyone's contributions!

Millie said...

Hi Amy,

grendelskin said...

Amy, thanks so much for this gargantuan effort; you're one-of-a-kind!

I've finished 10 quilts. But I must be a "real" quilter now, because I have 1 top that needs to wait for Next Steps, 4 actively in the works, and about 45 more brewing in my head!

Lonci said...

Hi Amy! Thank you for hosting Festival!

Thanks for helping build a vibrant quilting community in blogland!

Thank you for putting this all together and being the hostess with the mostest, Amy! The sponsor giveaways look amazing, too :-)

My summer quilt project will be to work on my granddaughter's quilt which will have a flower theme. It was to be her baby quilt and with her turning TWO this summer I think I had better get going on it! :-)

Blessings,
Tammy ~@~

Thank you again Amy for hosting this incredible Quilt Festival. I so look forward to visiting the blogs and piling on the inspiration. There are some amazing quilters out there! As far as ufo's, well I probably have about 10 that need to be quilted :-( But the good news is, this is the last year of teaching my last child. So hopefully I can start working on my unfinished quilts soon :-D

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Thank you Amy! Just entered my quilt and I would say I've made about 100 quilts so far and probably have enough fabric in my stash for another 100! Yikes - better get sewing!

Dresden Quilter said...

Hi Amy,

I wish we lived closer. I finished the quilt in time for the festival. I had a bit of binding to finish yesterday, so I tried out your tutorial. I liked it. I have a quilt coming back to me next week so I am going to try out the whole binding done that way. Thanks for your amazing work.

LuAnn Kessi said...

Hi Amy,
The is my second entry in one of your Bloggers Quilt Festivals. Thanks so much for the opportunity to share my work.
I have been creating textiles for more than 23 years now. I also teach quiltmaking throughout the Pacific Northwest. My entry, The Cow Pony, is a quilt I created to help me through a very difficult time in my life last year. I hope you will watch the slideshow of the making of this quilt.
My Best To You,

Sweet! Made it through 145 links this morning. My quilt isn't quite ready for posting, but I should have it finished up by the weekend's close. *grin* I love the Festival! It's such fun to see everyone's work and meet new people. Thank you, Amy, for organizing!

My tally is 5 finished quilts & 7 in progress since I started quilting in 2008 -- I tend to get distracted...

Thanks to you and all your sponsors for another fun quilt festival! I know I'll have lots of fun looking through all the beautiful quilts! I had a hard time picking one! I've made a lot, but I'm currently working on finishing one of the very first ones I started...

kameleonquilt said...

Amy, thank you for organizing this fun event yet again, - and for thinking of it in the first place :-)

Thanks for an opportunity to share my favorite project...for years I thought it would forever be an UFO...but thanks to blogs I was inspired to finish.

hetty said...

Thank you so much for organizing this festival again this spring. This is my third season for entering a quilt. It's so much fun and I just love looking at all the beautiful quilts that others have made!

Sandra said...

Thanks for doing this again and letting me share my antique quilts. I was happy to see your post last week from HMQS with my antique hexagon quilt--glad you enjoyed my special exhibit. I think the antique quilts are a good contrast to the new ones.

I'm so excited to be participating in this again... I can't wait to check out these great links! I have made 33 quilts in about 3 years. I have about 5 on my current to-do list and about 500 on my "someday" to-do list! After today, I will probably be so inspired it will be more like 5,000!

Shona B said...

Amy - Thank you so much for organizing this! I have been looking forward to it all winter!

Thanks for organizing. This post gave me a chance to reflect on all I've learned via blogs and the web, something I ought to do more often :)

Thank you so much for such a wonderful festival! I have submitted a piece that has never been shown on American soil and holds dear memories for me.

I have encouraged all my readers to make time to curl up with their laptops to enjoy this literal feast for the eyes!

Again, thank you so much! I know the work that goes into such an event, online or not, and I appreciate all that you have done and continue to do!

Amy, thanks for doing this again...it is sooo much fun! I'm hoping I'm lucky enough to win one of those FAB prize. Here's a link to my post too... http://magnoliadesigns.blogspot.com/2010/05/bloggers-quilt-festival.html

This quilt is super special. Our DD#2 is at long last going to have a baby .... she just turned 35 and was told she'd never have a baby.

Button is on my blog. I did Mr. Linky.

Gosh I have no idea how many quilts I've made. I'm a charity quilter so I donate many quilts each year.

Jan said...

Thanks for hosting this, again, Amy. Very generous of you.

Michele said...

This is my very first entry into the Festival, thanks for having me!

Linda said...

Thanks again Amy, I've just posted my link. Had a hard time deciding which quilt. Working on an appliqued crib bumper at the moment. The quilts have been put to one side until the bumper gets done.

kheaney said...

Just linked my quilt to the festival. Love this!! I think I have done about 8 quilts (small ones so I can do the machine quilting myself). Almost done with my next one using Heather Bailey Nicey Jane fabric. Just couldn't get it done in time.

Thanks for hosting!!

Thank you, thank you! This is one of my favorite things about blogging: your quilt festival!! I have lost track of the number of quilts I've made but I have about 3 I need to finish up soon. Can't wait to check out all the links for great inspiration...

Pat said...

How much fun is this! Another quilt festival. Thanks for sponsoring such a fun escape into blogland! You rock!

bethany said...

okay I am going to give this a try. I will post later today (soon) my quilt. This is fun and I can't wait to see everyone's quilts. This is new to me, and I am loving it!!!

Hello Amy,

It's my first time here but not my last.
A big HUG

laurenaphelps said...

Amy, Thank you so much for this festival! Last year, the festival inspired me to start my own blog. I've made about 15 quilts since I started quilting 7 years ago. I'm posting a quilt I made this winter. Thanks again! Lauren

Thanks for getting this going again Amy! I get much more done with a deadline!

call me crazy said...

Wow I can't believe I am 184 and it isn't even 9 AM! :-) This has got to be the biggest festival yet! I don't know how you do it Amy!~ but thank you!!! As far as how many quilts I plan to make~~ loads more! :-))

Michelle said...

Thanks for hosting the Bloggers Quilt Festival. This is the first time I'm participating and am really eager to see everyone's entries. Going to go have a look now. :-)

janet said...

This is my first time linking up to your wonderful festival. So many creative folks!!

Shannon w/ Monkey Dog Quitls said...

I linked and now I'm commenting. Can't wait to visit all of the uber-cool quilts!

Rebekah said...

Thanks so much for doing this again! It's my favorite time of the blogging year.

And, again, I managed to mess up my link - if you can delete my first link that would be great. The second one works fine :)

LB3K said...

Fun times! I wish that I even knew how many quilts I have ideas and fabric for, or that are started. . . TOO MANY to count! Thanks for putting this together! Love it!

Teresa said...

Thanks Amy for another quilt festival! I know you do a lot of work to make them so great!

Ellie-CraftSewCreate said...

Thanks Amy, I'm a first-timer and this is just so fun! I love seeing all the fabulous quilts!

Karin said...

Amy, I have been inspired by the blogger's links on your old quilt festival posts for a long time, and I am very happy to be part of one this time around! I have been quilting since I was 20 with my mom. I made my first quilt on my own when I was 22 years old, a log cabin. I still have that quilt and it is on my youngest son's bed. My entry to the festival is my second quilt I made on my own and it resides on my bed. I took a long hiatus from quilting while my kids grew up, but when my oldest went to college, I heavily got into it. I have so many flimsy's ready to quilt now, the quilting is my least favorite part! Karin

Meg said...

Thank you so much for this, Amy. It is awe-inspiring!!

I've only completed three quilts, all of which have been given as gifts. One of these days, I will actually finish one that stays home with me!

phipstick said...

I love the idea of having hundreds of quilters sharing inspiration! I've only been quilting since November, and only had my own blog since April, but it's nice to know that there are people who are just as passionate about weird things (like fabric and quilts) as I am! Thanks for creating the Festival!

Jessica said...

I'm thrilled to be a part of this...and to see all the gorgeous quilts! Thanks for all of your work in coordinating this and to all of the sponsors.

Shannon w/ Monkey Dog Quitls said...

Okay, I think that I linked it right now. Sorry if it shows up twice. This is my first time and was too excited. Can't wait to visit and see all of the uber-cool quilts. Sew On!

Dotti said...

I'm in and just posted my link...thanks Amy!

Melanie said...

Thanks for putting this together, Amy! I can't wait to go through the links one by one and see all the lovely quilts.

I've finished about eight or ten quilts and probably have about six quilts in various stages of construction going on right now.

What a great list of giveaways your fabulous sponsors have donated! Fingers crossed!

jomaj said...

Thanks for doing this - it's my "FIRST TIME" putting one of my quilts out there. I liked the mental exercise of choosing the quilt and the why's behind the choice. Since my Bernina is out of service, this was a nice way to still enjoy quilting!

Kimberly said...

I am currently only in the middle of two quilts. However I am needing to make 4 soon. I have a friend who is having a baby any day now, plus I promised my children I would get their quilts made.
My daughter's is one of the top that is finished. It needs to be sandwiched, quilted and bound. However, I am no longer in love with the quilt and not dying to finish it. Which is probably why it has been sitting for four years! :P
Thank you for organizing the Quilt Festival. I love it!

Sew Lovins said...

Thanks so much for putting this together; as a brand new blogger I am soo excited to get out there, show off my stuff and see what everyone else is up to!! Come check out my new site! Thanks again!

Sandi said...

Hi Amy, Hope I'm doing this in the right order.....added my link, now my comment, then I'm going to post to my blog. This quilt festival is a great idea and it will be fun to take a tour through blogland next week and see all the quilts on display! Thanks for doing this! And thanks to the sponsors, too!

Jessica Christensen said...

I have enjoyed the Blogger's Quilt Festival before but never joined in. Thanks for hosting/organizing this. So fun!

RosaMaría said...

ohh Amy, this is so fun!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for doing this amazing festival and thanks for counting me in. hugs!!

Elizabeth said...

This is such a fantastic way to find new blogs and be inspired. Thanks so much!

Amy said...

Just posted my link! Fun!
I have about 8 quilts that I have in the works, and more in my head :) there is never enough time!

Nichole said...

This is so fun! I'm excited to get through all these links. Right now I have many UFOs I am trying to finish up. My summer goal is to be done and caught up by fall.

allsewnup said...

So many fantastic quilts to look at, I'm going to savor them after my kiddos are tucked in tonight.
I hope I managed to navigate through the linky thingy the right way Amy. Thank you for doing this again.

hugs
Carolyn

quiltmom said...

HI Amy,
The festival is off to a great start- I know that there will be lots of wonderful quilts to see. This is the third time I have entered a quilt and it always is a great opportunity to meet new bloggers who share a love of quilting.
Thanks for all your hard work organizing the festival.
Warmest regards from Western Canada,
Anna

Michelle said...

I still can't figure out how I missed the second festival -- glad I saw your post about this one in time!

*Stitches* said...

thank you Amy!!!!!

Heather said...

Whew! Made it just in time to join in the fun. My blog posts these days are few and far between, but I just finished a special quilt this month for my son and wanted to share, only to find it was the last day to enter the Festival. Great timing! Can't wait to see all the beautiful quilts. I enjoyed it so much last time. Thanks for everything you do!

traceyjay said...

I wanted to have a new quilt finished for this... oh well... maybe in the fall! :)

Thanks Amy!

Mandy said...

I'm so glad I could be a part of the BQF! Thanks for hosting it, as I imagine it was a lot of work! Something about me...I've only made about 12 or 13 quilts, so as you can tell, I'm fairly new to quilting. I'm also addicted to it...

Janice said...

I posted my quilt, Amy! Thanks so much for organizing this festival. I love seeing everyone's quilts and finding new blogs!

Army Wife Quilter said...

I am so excited. This is my first time entering any of my quilts. Thanks for all the other quilts they are awesome.

Polly said...

Thank you for organizing this awesome Festival! I might have to take a day off to just go to all the blogs and see all the quilts! Polly

Abby said...

I'm sooo glad I'm done with school so I can look at everyone's quilts! Thanks for hosting this year!

Kaaren said...

This is my third Quilt Festival and this time I'm featuring my first original design. Hope you like it!

Can't wait to start visiting all the other blogs...starting NOW!

Allie said...

Thanks for hosting again! This is my third time posting for the quilt festival. I have made somewhere around 200 quilts, but all my festival entries are quilts I've made for my daughter.

Angela said...

Thanks so much for hosting this great festival! I love to see what other quilters are making and be inspired by their work. I've been quilting for a long time, but every day I find something new on flickr to inspire me and make me want to start a new project!
