Collection of Thoughts

I've felt a little absent this week...seems I have needed a little time off the computer.  Big surprise there!  I guess I feel a bit of a let down after the big push for the Festival - I'm glad every week isn't like that, but it is fun when it comes around :)

Did you add your quilt from the Festival to the flickr pool?  It's nice to see them all in one spot, but I'm still planning to get around and read all of your stories that go with them.  I made a mosaic of just a few of the submissions to the Festival last week.

1. Flower Power, 2. 100_3808_edited, 3. my sister's quilt, 4. Scrappy Log Cabin, 5. Zen Mini Quilt, 6. It's done! Community Gardens, 7. the storyteller, 8. Alex's quilt, 9. Turtle quilt, 10. Wheels Quilt Front, 11. Roots, 12. Fortune Cookie Quilt, 13. 9x9x9, 14. Old Friends are the Best, 15. "Hope Grows" quilt @ lovely bud, 16. Bloggers Quilt Festival - Pixelated Colourwheel, 17. lantern festival w beanie, 18. whimsical garden, 19. Close up of Matryoshka Quilt, 20. "Sea Glass" -- front, 21. Shoofly, 22. Star Bright Top, 23. Dude, Where's My Quilt, 24. Out of Line quilt front

Created with fd's Flickr Toys

It's amazing to see them all together like that!  If you are on flickr and didn't add your quilt yet, you still can - I just added mine yesterday.

**Also!  I will be selecting new winners for the people I haven't heard from yet - you snooze you loose!  Our sponsors are anxious to ship their wares, and I need to get things all wrapped up.  Sorry!  Look for a post later today with that exciting info.

I love seeing the mosaic of quilts. I wan't to post a quilt for Festival but was getting ready to leave town for a Quilt Retreat and it just didn't happen. :( I think this Flicker pool will provide lots of inspiration for the coming year! Thanks!

I could totally kick myself in the butt! By the time I got the nerve to post my quilt, Mr. Linky was closed :( oh well maybe next time i'll be a little quicker on the draw.

You can go see my Stained Glass Star quilt at my blog :) come visit please :)

It is like the let down after a wedding or any big event. Know that we appreciate it all!

You need a little time off the computer? I'd say you've earned a bunch of time away from the computer! What an incredible quilt festival and one I'm looking forward to slowly enjoying all summer long :-)

The collection of quilts is amazing! What a big undertaking for you--I can imagine you'd be exhausted by now.

You are showing off some great quilts. I missed this festival but hope to get in the next one.
What a wonderful way to share one's work with the world. Thank you for putting this festival together.

Have a super great day.

WOW ! I am honored to be included in your mosaic !

I came to look through some more of the entries, and decided to check your home page for your latest post, to see if I had one an 'unclaimed' prize.

Well, I feel like I WON A PRIZE !.....to be noticed with all the wonderful quilts that you must be looking at.

And I can understand that lost feeling that you must have, after, like you said, the mad rush to make the festival work again. But, YOU DID MAKE IT WORK !
What a wonderful thing you do !

Mel said...

WONDERFUL idea to have them all in one place!! I'll add my now!

Help! I was blown away by a red/yellow quilt in the blog fest that was done by a fabric artist who collaborated with a glass artist for a show. Now I can't find the right blog. Help?
