The Quilt Festival started in spring of 2009. I had been thinking about an online quilt show for a few months, but wasn't sure I would get the turn out that I hoped. So I waited, not wanting to do anything in haste.
Eventually I realized that I could ask fabric shops to sponsor the event, and to my surprise many accepted! Within a weeks time I had a dozen sponsors and had spread the word around blogs in preparation for the launch. I was so excited to meet so many generous quilters in the process!
The week of the first festival - blew me away! All the quilting bloggers sharing about their favorite quilts and what the quilt had meant to them. All that they had learned and how they grew as a quilter, and person through the process. Just amazing! The variety of quilts is wide, as is the skill level - but EVERYONE is welcome to join.
