Bloggers Quilt Festival

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.

Frequently Asked Questions --
  • May I join in, please? :)
Of course! Everyone is welcome to join!
  • You'll be posting the directions of what to do again, won't you?
Absolutely! Everything will be clear May 21, but if you would like to see the spring festival or fall festival for an idea of what to expect - go visit.
  • Help! I can't ever make buttons work. 
See the box of html below the button? Put your cursor in there, press control+A, then control+C to copy ALL the code. Then go to your blog, add a html gadget and press control+V to paste the code. Save and you should have a nifty little button! You can also paste it into a blog post :) This is for blogger - I have no idea how the other platforms work - sorry!
  • Are the signups going to be different? 
Nope! See the spring festival if you would like to know what to expect.
  • Please send me details on how to get on board. 
Sorry - I'm having a hard time keeping up with everyone, if your question isn't answered here, let me know. Everyone is welcome to participate beginning May 21 :)
  • The button takes you to the page of information. Is that what you want? 
Yes! Right now I need your help spreading the information to as many quilting bloggers as possible - we don't want them to miss out, do we!? On May 21 I will change the code to go directly to the Quilt Festival post.
