Update & Thanks!


Posted on May 26th, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival, Thankful. 22 comments

As of this morning there are 572 quilts entered in our Festival!  Amazing!  There’s still time if you have been working on a finish, or working up the nerve to participate.  Everyone is welcome, no matter your style or skill level.  We would love to see your quilt – please go write a post and link up!  The linky closes Friday, midnight, then will be permanent links on my post.

A very sweet blog friend sent me this gorgeous fabric care package -

Thank you Terri, your gift made my day!

I’m slowly working through the links – we’ve had a nasty spring cold in the house.  I keep thinking today I/the kids will feel better, but it’s not happening…yet!  Time to sanitize the house again.  I checked with the pediatrician’s office earlier, we just need to wait it out at the moment.  Need to get some more OJ :)

I hope that you are well and blessed~
Amy

    Phew! I'm so glad to read that the links to BQF entries will be permanent on your blog, I just don't think I'm going to get to them all by the end of the festival and I don't want to miss anything. There are so many wonderful quilts and ideas out there but over 500 blogs to visit in a week is beyond my computer screen tolerance level! Great festival Amy, many congratulations.

    Sorry to hear you are all under the weather, but I know that "care package" made you feel better! I am really enjoying the quilt festival – thanks so much (again) for hosting it!

    awesome care package.
    keep pounding down the vitamin C! My doctor always says to drink tons of water to flush things out, and that it takes a while after the virus is gone to feel all the way better.

    Gorgeous care package! What line of fabric is that?! It is so pretty!! And the buttons just make it!

    What a bummer that you guys are sick again! You've had a rough year. Do you guys take vitamin D supplements? We added them to our repertoire and the girls have only had one illness each in the last year! We added a probiotic too.

    I, too, am glad to hear they will be permanent links. I've visisted about 100, but at that time there was only 300! Thanks so much for all the work you do and hope you feel better soon.

    That is a lovely care package. I'll have to send you one one of these days too – for all the great work you're doing and for putting together this great Festival for all of us to share our work.

    Thanks!

    Wow that's a lot of quilts! I'm slowly working my way through too, my computer has been running very hot and we've had a heat wave here, so it's off most of the day.

    What a lovely package you've received! I hope you all feel better soon – I second the OJ!

    I want to say AGAIN, thank you so much for the festival., It's the gift that keeps on giving. I posted my quilt on the first day and I am still getting comments which is just lovely few a new blogger (2 months next week!). BUT the reason I really wanted to thank you was that I thought my quilt was fatally flawed by the wrong choice of sashing but there has been such a positive response that I now love the choice of sashing and love the quilt twice as much as I did. Thank you Amy. X

    I hope you all feel better, soon. My daughter has 4 children and I can sympathize with you on illnesses. lol
