Quilt Festival – Spring 2009


Posted on April 16th, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival. 522 comments

***The Quilt Festival is now closed and no longer accepting new links***


Welcome
to the first online Quilt Festival! I’m so glad you are here! Get a cup of coffee or tea and stay a while. There’s lots to see and many places to visit. I look forward to getting to know all of you a little better this week!

First, I need to thank our generous sponsors – I emailed each of them this week and they have been enthusiastic to get involved. Thank You! Without your support this event would not be nearly as exciting! The sponsors are all listed on my right sidebar and I have a list of offerings a little later in this post. Be sure to do some shopping while blog hopping :)
———————————————-

Here’s how you get involved -

  • Select your favorite quilt, make sure you have a good picture of it and go post about it! 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!
  • Once you have posted on your blog come back here with your link to that post – I’m hoping that this list can be a reference and future source of inspiration for many, long after this week is over.
  • Insert your name and url in the Mr Linky.
  • Leave me a comment to be entered in the giveaways.

    What a fun idea! I posted one link, but there are actually three related blog posts:

    1. http://auntspicy.blogspot.com/2008/05/heirloom-part-i.html
    2. http://auntspicy.blogspot.com/2008/05/heirloom-part-ii.html
    3. http://auntspicy.blogspot.com/2008/05/heirloom-part-iii.html

    The posts are older, but about my grandmother and other relatives unfinished quilts…which mean more to me than anything I have made.

    Favorite Prize, fabric of course! But I would love to try Tanya Whalens Darla collection!

    Thanks so much for organising.
    I’m looking forward to visiting all the lovely quilts.
    I have added myself as a link but have posted again since.
    So, I thought it would be good to change my link to take people to the correct post:
    http://patchandi.blogspot.com/2009/04/bloggers-quilt-festival.html
    How do I do that?

    Totally cool! I’m gonna play… I’ve got a blogpost scheduled for tomorrow, so how about I publish mine on the 20th, Monday. And, if you’d like, I’d be happy to donate a prize, too…. how about the pattern of their choice from my website (on of my patterns) plus two fat quarters of my hand-dyed fabric (my choice of fabrics)….. let me know if you ‘d like another prize!

    The best way to contact me is via my website or my regular e-mail: sarah (at) sarahannsmith (dot) com , eliminated the spaces and inserting the symbols…of course!

    What fun, cheers, Sarah

    This is a great idea! I have only officially finished one quilt, but I have another in sandwich form and one other top done. I just started quilting in January, so I think it’s so fun…when I get the chance…since I have a 6 month old son who doesn’t let me do it too often anymore!!

    Thank you for organizing this! I had such a hard time choosing a favourite and in the end, I’m still not sure. My quilting has changed so much in the last 6 months since I’ve discovered the online quilt community. I hope you organize this again next year so that I can exhibit a quilt that I’m happier with. I’ve got several on the go but nothing finished yet! I love to read your blog…

    Hi,

    I think having an online quilt fest is such a great idea. Seeing what others do is so inspiring!

    If I am lucky enough to win one of the prizes, fabric would be great.

    Cassie says:

    Fun stuff, Amy. I’m embarassed to admit that I don’t have a quilt to share. If I win one of those fabulous prizes, I might be inspired to whip one up though. Thanks for all the fun. I’m linking like crazy!

    I was on my way to uploading a picture of my favorite quilt when I read about your favorite brownie recipe…what to do?!?! Quilt or Brownie?!?! Well, the brownie won out…it’s baking…and the house smells terrific and MAYBE, if I don’t go into a diabetic coma, I’ll still be able to post my quilt…if not, you’ll know the brownie did me in…but I will have gone happy!! Truly, if this brownie tastes as good as it smells…well…just know my thighs thank you in advance because that’s where those brownies will end up!!! xo, Nan

    Hi Amy,
    I don’t know if I have done all the parts right but I gave it my best shot. There is an icon to your blogger festival on my blog as well as my name on your linky list so I am going to hope for the best.

    Its a wonderful idea and I certainly will enjoy visiting the other blogs to gain inspiration.
    Please put my name in for your draws.
    Regards from a Western Canadian Quilter,
