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.
About the sponsors and prizes!
Amy is the talent behind our fabulous graphics for the festival, and she is offering a great package --
To celebrate the launch of PatchworkFolio I am offering a complete blog makeover to include a custom header, 5 sidebar title buttons, custom background, fonts, colors, favicon and post divider, coordinating post title font and custom 'email me' button. I will work with your current platform (i.e. Blogger, Typepad, Wordpress or other) and restrictions may apply depending upon your plan level and options available with your service. If you don't have a blog but wish to enter the drawing I will get you set up on Blogger's free platform and include all of the above (a $150 value).
