Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Fall 2010


Posted on October 29th, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival. 816 comments

Welcome to the fourth Blogger’s Quilt Festival!  I am so glad that you are here!  I sincerely hope that you plan to enter a quilt and share in the festivities.  Everyone is welcome, and encouraged to participate, no matter your skill level or number of quilts completed!  There’s no judging in our festival, instead lots of new friends to be made and inspiration to be found!

I must begin by thanking our sponsors!  Thank you all!!  They have been generous and great to work with in the weeks leading up to today.  Please take time to visit each of the shops and find a little something special for yourself.

While you hop through the list, let me know if you see a quilter you would like to have featured on my Friday, Festival Feature.  I’m always in need of more Featured Quilters!

Ready to share your quilt?

Here’s what you need to do to participate:  (Please read carefully)

  1. Write a new post (old posts will be deleted).  Share one quilt, and it’s story.  Why you made it, why it is special to you, what you learned about quilting/yourself while making it.  The quilt doesn’t have to be brand new, never seen before on your blog – show what you like!  Also, please respect my efforts and the efforts of the event sponsors, and do not offer giveaways in your Quilt Festival post.
  2. In your post, link back to the festival.  You can do this with a button, just copy and paste the code into your post, if  all else fails.
  3. Share a permalink to your post, in the linky.  Right click on your post title to copy link address, then paste it in the linky.
  4. Leave me a comment to be entered in the giveaways.  Maybe you can tell me approximately how many yards of fabric you have in your stash.  It’s fun to learn something (be entertained) as I read all the comments.
  5. Visit all the other quilters sharing their quilts 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 our sponsors —

After the Festival is over I will announce and contact winners!


(Collection closed)
Link tool by inlinkz.com

**Please do not link up if you are not posting a specific quilt, also linking to etsy/ebay shops is not allowed.  I reserve the right to delete links that are not within the guidelines above.

Enter your link and don’t forget to leave a comment!  I hope you have a comfortable spot to enjoy the show from!  If you have a question, please email me directly, as I will not be able to keep up with comments, and I will do my best to help.

Enjoy the show!!

Amy

    Wahoo! I’ve been so excited for this!! I have no idea how many yards in my stash…far too many. I must admit though I have a lot of different fabrics in smaller amount, 1 yard or less. I only have a few things that are more than a yard.

    Thanks so much for this great festival!

    Woot! I’m so excited to share this quilt with everyone! What I LOVE about your festival Amy is the focus on the story behind the quilt! I had a great time thinking about what quilt to share, and I realized how important this quilt was to my artistic development! ANd I can’t wait to see all the others!

    So excited about BQF!! How many yards of fabric do I have in my stash? I’m not sure that’s a quantifiable number! Maybe around 60 yards? I think a more telling question would be how many fat quarters I have: too many! Thanks for hosting BQF, Amy! You’re the best!

    Hi Amy,
    Thanks for hosting what I am sure will be another wonderful Blogger’s Quilt Festival. I am looking forward to checking out many of the lovely quilts.
    My stash – I am not really a stasher – I tend to buy for specific projects.
    Cheers,
    Karen

    Thank you to all the generous sponsors! And, thank you, Amy! I always look forward to the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. Very cute idea with the thumbnails, but I would love to also be able to see a list of the names of the blogs. Is that possible? Enjoy the week. http://debbiesfiberwork.blogspot.com

    Yahoo!
    I’m so excited for BQF!
    Thanks for organizing and hosting :) I’m sure it’s a lot of work.

    Yardage in my stash … oh my … I bet if I added it all up, at least 100 yards, probably more. I have a problem. And I work at a fabric store so that doesn’t help! Cutting fabric for people all day only makes me want more. haha.

    Hmmm…I probably have 20 yards? Beats me…who knows what’s in that shelf that I can’t see! Thank you for all your hard work Amy! :) -Allison

    I love BQF! I barely completed my quilt in time before having to leave for Quilt Market. Between Market and viewing all the BQF entries, I think I’ll be on Quilty Over Stimulus Mode for awhile!

    Hi Amy, I did submit a comment just before by the system has done something very strange with it so you might want to delete it!

    I just found your blog 2 days ago and am so glad I did. Thank you for putting this quilt festival together! I hope I’ve done all the steps right! I can’t wait to look through all these quilts. So far they are just yummy!
    Take care, Karen

    Wow! What great quilts in the show already – I’m so excited about seeing lots of great quilts here.

    Thanks for organising this, Amy – and thanks to the sponsors too – what a generous bunch you’ve found!

    How many yards of fabric do I have? More than I should, according to my DH, not enough pink according to DD2, and enough to pull my cupboards from the wall :-(. Stash now relugrated to ground based storage in drawers and plastic crates now……

    Kathy says:

    Amy, Thanks so much for making the Blogger’s Quilt Festival possible again this season. I enjoy it so much! I know some people keep track of the yardage in their stash. I’m not sure I would want to know! I have mostly fat quarters, but let’s just say that I have enough fabric to quilt well into retirement and that won’t be for many years! Besides, I am always adding to my stash!

  34. 34

    I’m already browsing the beautiful quilts. How exciting to hear the stories that go with the quilts. Thannks for doing thus Amy!

  35. 35
    Heidi says:

    Sorry, can’t tell you how many yards I have, I mostly have FQ’s ;-)
    No, I haven’t the slightest clue, but I guess it could be 50-100 yards. At least I know I could make more than 1 quilt out of it.

    Susan says:

    I am excited to be joining in this time! I have far too much fabric! But lots of ideas- just not enough time to make them all!! Thanks for hosting!

    Thanks so much, Amy!

    Mrs Moen says:

    Hi Amy! I have added my link and tried to calculate how many yards of fabric that’s in my stash. I gave up around a mile and a half. I would say I have a lot despite my efforts to use only from stash and not keep adding to it.
    Thanks for setting up the Blogger’s Quilt Festival again!

    Allie says:

    YAY! It’s here! Amy, I look so forward to this, I’ve met so many amazing quilters through you – thank you so much for doing this!

    Stash? Not much of a stash anymore….sigh. I’m working on it though!

    Robin says:

    I so excited to share my latest quilt in the festival. Thanks again for hosting this amazing and inspiring event, Amy! As to my stash… it is big. I have no idea how much fabric I have. I try not to think about it too much. :)

  41. 41

    I scared to even say how much Fabric I have in my Stash!
    Let’s Say If I never bought any more Fabric I could sew non-stop for about a Year…..Yikes!

  42. 42
    Emma says:

    Excellent work, Amy! When I last counted (well, weighed) I had almost 1.4km of fabric in my stash; now it would be about 1.5km (almost a mile)!

    Deonn says:

    Hi, Amy! Thanks for hosting this fun Quilt Festival! And congrats on the new book! Now, don’t let my husband read this, but I have a stash of fabric in a bookcase full of shoebox size bins, a stash of assorted batting on rolls that I store in the tub, a stash of upholstery fabrics in nine or ten large bins and garbage bags on shelves in the garage, a stash of 19 unquilted quilt tops of my own in a bin under my longarm machine, plus a stash of clients’ quilts on hangers in my closet that will take me through Christmas and beyone, a stash of buttons in jars on my cutting table, a stash of 80 cones of thread on a shelf, and a stash of 59 UFOs on shelves and in the window seat. I also have a stash of quilted table runners in a bin in the kitchen and a stash of quilts that fill the linen closet to the brim… yup, I am a quilter.

    Debbie says:

    Trying again, my other comment doesn’t seem to have gotten through. I’d like to thank all the generous sponsors and especially Amy for her work and providing us with this fun! Have a great weekend. http://debbiesfiberwork.blogspot.com

    These Bloggers’ Quilt Festivals are such a wonderful idea — it is so great to see all the beautiful quilts and meet bloggers that one perhaps would not have come across were it not for the Festival!
    Thanks for all the work you put into this. It is really appreciated!
    How much yardage in my stash? I haven’t a clue as I’m mostly a scrap quilter and tend to buy FQs and half yards.

  46. 46
    Nadine says:

    Is it that time of year already? Thanks for hosting this Blogger’s Quilt festival again. I can’t wait to look at all the lovely blogs and be inspired.

    How much yardage I have is impossible to tell and would take me ages and probably break my brain trying to do the maths. I mainly have FQs and half yards, but loads of those, whole collections. Some Pat Bravo lines, Patty Young, Heather Ross FFA2, Laura Gunn, Laurie Wisbrun, Jessica Levitt, those are some of my faves, and of course Amy Butler and Kaffe Fassett. I honestly think I have enough fabric to last the next 20 years (if I keep working by hand that is and keep making reversible quilts), but can’t even bear the though that I shouldn’t buy any more fabric. :)

    How many yards in my stash? That is top secret information – you never know what my husband might be reading. Let’s just say more than I can count on my fingers and toes. Thanks for another amazing festival – I can’t wait to start visiting all these gorgeous quilts!

  52. 52

    AAAHHH!! Im am SO excited!! Its my First Festival and I am having a ball sitting checking out everyones AMAZING quilts! What a fantatsic way to get everyone together and share our passion! ….mmmm…yardage??? Maybe 20 yards? Prob not much as i try and use most of my fabric in each quilt and then give it away with a pattern…xx Thanks so much!! xx

    Nina-Marie says:

    Thanks again Amy for hosting this – its greatly appreciated!!! I literally have thousands and thousands of yds in my stash. Last summer I did a huge stash sell-off – sold off about 1/5th of my collection which was over 1000 yds – I sold it for only 2 bucks a yd and earned enough to go to Quilt conference next year for a week! My quilt friends are happy for a bargain – I’m happy to go to Quilting by the Lake and my stash is so much easier to navigate now!

    I’m headed camping tomorrow with a group of Sparks and Brownies (Girl Guides), so I won’t be posting until Monday… Thanks for hosting this.

    As for how many yards of fabric… now that is a nasty question. Do I need to answer by fabric type. Quilting cottons – I have less than 100m! But that doesn’t really highlight my stash that includes fleece, denim, home dec, knits, outerwear, and much more! I probably have more than 1000m, but it is decreasing! YEAH!!!!

    I love to see everyone’s quilts, is anyone as obsessed as a quilter, lol! I don’t know how much fabric I have in my stash, I’m not sure I want to know — and I make a conscious effort not to add to it. And STILL I could make at least a dozen quilts and not buy fabric but backing materials. Busy making a monster queen sized quilt with a whole lotta flying geese this week. Have 178 geese units to make for one of my borders, diving into that this weekend. There is a central blocks unit (done), pieced border (done and sewn on), 2 narrow plain borders (cut, sewing those on today), a pieced border (the 178 flying geese, cut, to be pieced) and a final border (cut).

    Thanks, Amy, for organising such a wonderful festival. This is the first time I have had the opportunity to participate and I am so excited. In the past it has taken me weeks and weeks to go through the quilts in the festival and look at all the blogs for each one. I have found so much inspiration along the way. I am looking forward to discovering more new sites and enjoying all the great work on display.

    Wow, Amy! Looks like the BQF is off to a humming start already–so many colorful links! Thank you for the time to take to organise this. I’m sure I’m not the only quilter who gets a lot of pleasure from seeing the quilts.

    Now, how many yards of fabric does my stash comprise? Uh… Well, it’s mostly FQ and F8th packs, jelly rolls and charm packs although there is some meterage. A quick head count suggests around 50. (And I think my stash is small!)

    Wow, there are so many awesome giveaways! This is such an awesome thing to host, Amy, I’m really excited to go see what everyone has to show for the festival. Thank you so much for hosting this!!

Yikes!

    Hi Amy, Thanks for all your work! I enjoyed making my quilt so much because it was going to a blogging friend I’d never met before last week. I’m so glad the quilt festival was scheduled after I finished it! By the way, I have no clue on yards in stash…probably under 25.

    OK, I’m a dork. I put the wrong link on one of my links so I re-posted it. Sorry, forgive me? If you want you can delete the link that goes to the blog url and not the post url… (I blame it on lack of coffee…LOL). Thanks to you and your sponsors for allowing us some brag (and learning) space!

    I can’t wait to see to everyone’s quilts and get lotsa inspirations and ideas… plus the courage to try a new technique or two!

    Blogger’s Quilt Festival rocks!!!!!

I am doubly excited to post my linky because this is actually my very first quilt, and I just finished it last night! I’m looking forward to seeing all the other (more advanced) quilts! lol! :-)

    Thanks for hosting such a fun party — I look forward to it for weeks!

    As for my stash, I’ve been on a fabric diet this year. Between a 10 inch flood and a serious effort to use up what I have previously purchased, I’ve gone from 16 large storage containers of fabric down to about seven. My husband is thrilled, but I’m wondering what I can do to replenish it again! :)

  95. 95

    I have just posted my antique schoolhouse quilt. Hope you enjoy it. Can’t even imagine how many yards I have, a gazillion may be close.
    Thanks. Hope to see you at the HMQS this spring.

  96. 96

    I’ve posted my miniature pink and white quilt for the festival, this quilt actual has been to Houston for that other festival.
    Again I’m guessing I have about a gazillion yards of fabric.
    Thanks.

  107. 107

    Thank you for this great idea! It is my very first Blogger’s Quilt Festival! I love having a look at all the quilts. It is so inspiring :) Regarding how many fabric yards I own… I do not have a big stash yet. I am quite new to quilting, and I mostly buy pre-cuts… as fabric is so expensive and so difficult to get here in Europe :(

    First time I have seen or been in the festival- what a generous thing to host and a great way to find out more about different bloggers. I thought my stash was small but when I think about yardage I start to worry- I can’t fess up, but I have plans for it all!

  110. 110
    Shevvy says:

    I haven’t a clue how many yards I have. Most of my stash is in fat quarters but I’ve been buying some yardage when I spot a bargain. Of course I then end up stuffing it in different places all over the house and forget what I’ve got! I’m planning a play with stash weekend so who knows what delights I’ll find!

    Denise in PA says:

    Just linked my post! Thanks so much for hosting this again. I have to admit, I am scared to try to figure out how many yards are in my stash. I’ve been stash-building for 17 years. Do fabrics in kits count? Oh my, I don’t think I want to know. I don’t want to know how much fabric I added to my stash just this year – LOL!

  115. 115

    Thanks for doing this again – it is so much fun. I have a closet full of stash fabric, at least 1,000 yards. Shh! Don’t tell my husband! What he doesn’t know won’t bother him.

  116. 116
    Nicole says:

    Thanks for hosting! I can’t wait to look through all the quilts. My stash probably is only about 5 yards. I’m the type that only buys fabric if I have a specific project in mind – my budget can’t survive any other way. If I let myself, I’m sure there would be much more there, there are so many beautiful fabrics out there. Here’s hoping there are many new projects in the future. :)

There were only 8. Yes, ahem, counting that I would guess that I have between 50 and 75 yards in my stash. And very good intentions of using all of them!

    Just added my sister’s quilt to the festival. Thanks so much for putting this together again! It looks like we will be looking through quilts for a long time! :) As to my stash… I have no idea how much yardage I have. I’ve got a bunch of fat quarter sets, panels, jelly rolls, half yards, and big yardage for quilt backs in my stash, along with almost a full bolt of white. I never really keep track of how many yards I have, so its hard for me to estimate. I’m sure its up there!

    Marjorie says:

    My stash is slowly dwindling. I’ve been actively making it go away by making quilts for each of my niece & nephews (4 down, 7 to go). I’ve also gotten great joy in shipping off pieces that I love, but have grown tired of through blog give aways. What I really need to work on, is the 3 bins of fabric I bought to sew clothes. What was I thinking? I’m a terrible tailor.

    Sara says:

    Not sure how much fabric I have, but I have 3 of the same sewing machine, Elna Supermatic*s from 1964, making them more than twice my age (I’m 22). I’ve looked into modern machines, but I cant find one with more features and a longer arm until I get into the $1000+ range, and I’d rather spend that on more fabric.

    I have enjoyed looking at many of the bloggers’ entries already and am looking forward to seeing more. The quilts are so inspiring. They have given me some good ideas to add to my “to do” list. I probably have 200 yards of fabric. Recently went to a whole bolt sale. Luckily they will be used up for some backings.

    Hi, Amy! I’m so happy to be posting on the Bloggers Quilt Festival again! And I have no idea how many yards of fabric are in my stash – I think I’d be afraid to find out! But probably half of my stash was donated this year for our quilt ministry by lots of my fabulous quilt blog friends – so here’s a shout out to them!!

    I can’t wait to check out the quilts in this year’s festival!!

    Kati S. says:

    Love, love, love the thumbnail links for the quilts! This is my first time entering, and I think it’s a fabulous idea. Thanks so much for hosting it. I really have no idea how many yards are in my stash, but if I had to guess it’s probably 100-150 which is a very scary thought to me. I really need to stop buying fabric and start sewing from my stash exclusively. There are just too many cute designs out there. I can’t stop myself!

    Lynn says:

    I am not sure I have done this all correctly but have a blog entry posted for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival now. You asked the question “How many yard in your stash?” That is a hard one to answer but I can tell you I have lots and most of it is fat quarters. I do a lot of miniatures so fat quarters go a long way.

    Thanks for the fun quilt festival!! I can’t wait to check out all the entries. Hmmm how much fabric do I have in my stash? Not much actually! I really do try my best to buy what I need and use it up, my stash is mostly scraps. I guess if I had to put a number on it, I’d say *maybe* 30 yards of fabric total. but most of that is scraps.

    If we were to count 4″ I-Spy squares (my current obsession!), I would guess it’s in the thousands. Probably the 3,000’s. Yikes!

    Thanks for hosting the festival! It’s always so fun to see what other quilters are creating!

    Jennifer says:

    Thank you for hosting this! I am so excited to have the chance to particpate. I have not nearly enough yardage in my stash. Most of it has a purpose so I don’t count it. So that leave maybe 15 yards of stuff and some of that is sweats and knits and pul for diapers. Maybe 5 of it is for quilting. ;)

    How many yards of fabric ~ I would guess around 20 of cottons, but I’m not sure if any of that is a full yard, and probably 20 more yards of knits, fleece, and any poly-mixes. I also have a lot of scraps, some cut up into charms and smaller squares, and a couple boxes of a “mess” of scraps.

    Thanks for the chance at these great prizes!

    Thank you so much for the Quilt Festival. I have never done anything like this before. I am so new to quilting and blogging and am really loving it. I hope to have many more to choose from next year. I learned so much, it is too hard to choose one specific thing I learned while making this quilt, but I think now knowing how to finish it after making the top has had the most impact on me. http://lauralovesquilting.blogspot.com/

    Debbie J says:

    Hi Amy, thanks for hosting the Bloggers’ Quilt Festival. I have lots of fabric, but not all of its very pretty! Most of it was donated to me by “older” ladies who no longer want to or can sew. When making a quilt I can pull some fabric from my stash, but not usually without supplementing it at the fabric store. I do try to use as much of the stash as I can. Who knows, some day I may use it all. I’m sure I could sew for the rest of my days and not run out!

    Debbie J.

  190. 190

    Thank you Amy for having this wonderful quilt show again. And having the thumbnails of the quilts is a great idea.

    How many yards in my stash, oh dear, I would hate to have that get out!! It is way more than I like and I am sure that in the rest of my life I will not be able to get rid of it. One probably is that it just keeps reproducing, honestly. I shut the door and the next time I go in there it has increased. Just how does that happen!!??

    Everyone have a good time.

    Hi Amy, thanks for hosting the Bloggers’ quilt festival. I enjoy it alot.

    I have lots of stash fabric, but its not all too pretty. Most of it was given to me by “older” ladies who don’t or can’t sew any more. I try to use it as much as I can, but end up supplementing it from the fabric store. I think if I made myself not buy fabric I could sew for the rest of my life just using what I have. :o)

    Hi Amy,

    I like being able to see a photo of the quilt that is entered in the festival. I’m having trouble uploading my own, but I know that it will work eventually.

    Please enter me in your giveaways……I’m whittling down an old collection of fabrics, 2 chests of drawers full, and really would like to win some fresh new fabrics.

    Karen says:

    The quilts shown just get better and better each year – thank you for hosting it once again. I am going to enjoy looking at the quilts for weeks to come.

    Yards of fabric?! Yikes! That’s like looking in the mirror too closely. I bet that there are easily 100 yards of fabric…but that could be an underestimate. More fabric comes in than goes out unfortunately. I wish I could work with all it the way that I want to!

    WhoooHooo! I am so excited to be a part of your BQF!! Let the festivities begin :o).

    Thank you Amy putting this festival together. Always great to “meet” new-to-me bloggers. Now I will never get anything done. LOL.

    Thanks for having this wonderful Blogger Quilt Festival! So much fun to enter and to see everyone’s quilts.

  200. 200

    Yay! This is so much fun! Luckily I finally uploaded and posted my quilt so I could join in!

    Michele says:

    Oooh, I love this festival. I have 40 gazillion yards of fun fabric in my stash. On to the loveliness!

    Amy, I love the thumbnails of the quilts on your blog for this festival!There are some great quilts! thanks as always for hosting!

  203. 203
    Melanie says:

    Yay! Finally done my blog post for the quilt festival!

    My personal fabric stash is quite small. Maybe 5-6 yards total?
    The thing is, I run a very tiny online fabric shop so if I have to include that, it’s more like a hundred yards! :P

  204. 204
    upstatelisa says:

    I seem to be having some trouble on the first try posting… argh. Second time is a charm, I hope! Thanks for hosting the festival Amy! I love seeing the thumbnails of the quilts right on your blog! They are all so wonderful!

  205. 205
    Jackie says:

    Thank you, Amy for having this Blogger Quilt Festival. It is my first time to enter in this festival and I have been very excited about it!

    As far as my stash goes, I have tons and tons…..literally! I have been sewing all my life and I’m sure I have fabric in my stash from the 70’s! Everytime I pull out a piece from the “old days”, it still reminds me of a memory. Isn’t that what quilts and quilting is all about….preserving memories?

  206. 206
    Amber says:

    My sewing/craft room is a disaster! I don’t have neat little piles of color coordinated fabrics, or fancy dowels holding my ribbons. I have piles. Monstrous piles of scraps, floral antique sheets, cheap ugly fat quarter samples, papers and misc stuff. On the bright side, I find nice surprises once in awhile that I’d forgotten about ;)

  207. 207
    Becky says:

    Let’s be honest- I have NO idea how many yards of fabric I have in my stash and I don’t think I want to know because then I’d feel accountable and guilty every time I brought home more. Nope- in this case, ignorance is bliss. :)

  208. 208

    Amy – the photos are fabulous! What a great feature for the festival. Yards of fabric? I dare not count, although I do have it all in one place and visible so I’m not buying what I already have! Now I’m off to admire all the beautiful quilts and talented quilters!

  209. 209
    Sue Abrey says:

    I’ve been looking forward to this. Can’t stop, places to go, quilts to see …..

    Janet in Tally says:

    A big THANK YOU to all the sponsors! Wish I was in Houston again for the show. As far as my stash….well, I have a bedroom with shelves & racks , like quilt shop, filled with bolts & bins of fat qtrs. This is 25+ years of collecting fabric, so, I have no idea exactly how many yards I have. But, as all quilter’s know…one can NEVER have too much fabric!

  211. 211
    RosaMaria says:

    Thank you so much again, Amy, for hosting this wonderful festival again! see all the photos together is just fantastic!!!

    Erin O says:

    Amy, thanks for posting this festival again. I’ve entered every time and love reading all the entries. Lets see,i have maybe about 75 yds, but that includes fat quarters, jelly rolls, and yardage and scraps.

  213. 213
    Angie Nudge says:

    So excited to see so many gorgeous quilts. I love the new feature that has the thumbnails of the quilts. That way I’ll be able to go back to a quilt I especially like quickly.

    Thank you Amy for providing this opportunity of eye candy and to meet so many online quilters.

  214. 214
    April says:

    I don’t have a ton of scraps because I have only ever sewn together 3/4 of one quilt top and I have had to go get more fabric. :) I started it 5 years ago and am getting very motivated to finish it. (it was a very ambitious one to start with.)I love the look of quilts and now that my babies are a little older I feel that I can try and learn again. Would love to win something to help with that!

  215. 215
    Emily says:

    Thanks for another fun blogger’s quilt festival. It is fun to see all the quilts as little thumbnails.

  216. 216
    Vicki says:

    Thanks, Amy, for all your hard work on this! Thanks to the great prize sponsors, too! Now to go look at some quilts:)

    Lauren P says:

    Thank you for hosting the BQF! I look forward to seeing all the wonderful quilts! I have a very small stash. I only buy fabric with a project in mind, so my stash is all small scraps.

  218. 218
    Rose Marie says:

    Once again ….. thank you …. for putting this festival together. There are so many lovely quilts to look at and new friends to meet. Love the idea of the thumbnails! This time around, I chose a jacket to enter.

  219. 219
    Chris says:

    WOW! Lots and lots of great quilts this year! I couldn’t pick just one, but because I’m new at this I posted all of my quilts thus far!

    As for how much yardage I have? I have never counted, maybe I should!

  220. 220
    Vic Heaton says:

    What a swell idea!! I love the 1930’s fabric and have a massive stash awaiting a cutie rainbow log cabin quilt that I’ve had planned in my head for years! This quilt let me use about 2 yards of the stash (didn’t even make a noticeable dent!)….Anyhow, someday!! Thanks for organizing this festival…

    Hi Amy! This is my first time participating in your Blogger’s Quilt Festival and I’m really excited to be a part of it! :-) I shared a very special quilt that I made for a little guy named Max who was born almost 3 months premature. I’m afraid that my stash is pretty slim, because I’m a fairly new quilter, but I’m working on it. lol I can’t wait to spend some time this weekend looking at all of the amazing quilts that other blogger’s are sharing! :-)

    Amy Smart says:

    Amy – I’m LOVING the picture linky. So fun to get a birds-eye view of everything. Thanks!!

  224. 224

    Thanks! Can’t wait to be inspired by all the talented quilters out there! I have no idea how much fabric I have, but it makes me happy to look at it all stacked up and colorful!!

    I can’t believe the talent everyone has. Quilters are just the best! Thank you so much for organizing this. I’m loving every minute of it.

    Emily says:

    So excited to be a part of this quilt fest! :) I’ve got maybe 15-20 yds of fabric in my stash… not too much I think. :) Now to get looking at all these beauties!!!

  227. 227

    Yay! I’m so excited to enter again!! I made a quilt inspired by the last bqf!! :) I don’t have a stash right now :( but I have fabric to make three quilts for Christmas. After I get through these I want to focus on Reagan’s quilt for her bed. It will be my first “full size” quilt so I’m a little intimidated to do free motion. But I will do it! :D Thanks for all the work you do!!
    p.s…I tried to copy and paste the code and it pasted the button IN a code box so I just copy and pasted your jpg. Hope that’s ok.

    Karen W. says:

    I didn’t read the instructions before I commented earlier. I don’t have yards of fabric in my stash. I just have bags of scraps! I enjoy scrap quilts and paper piecing small quilts. I have one storage tub of gallon zipper bags of scraps divided by color. When I make larger quilts I buy just the fabric needed for that project.
    I’ve had a chance to look at some of the blogs in the festival. This is great fun!

    Visiting all the lovely entries: to be done!
    Thanks Amy for organising yet another succesfull Festival, judging by the number of entries on the first day. And thanks to all the sponsors for their generous giveaways!
    I honestly don’t have a clue how many yards of fabric I have in my stash and that’s probably better because it would be a scary number!

    Thanks Amy for doing the quilt festivals! I really look forward to them! I wish you hadn’t made me consider how many yard of fabric I have. It makes me nervous… I’m more of an ignore the situation type of fabric hoarder.

    Alisa says:

    I just started quilting, but I’m embarassed to say that I probably have 100 yards of fabric… I’m a little obsessive about things & I can’t turn away beautiful fabric…the problem is that I can’t seem to cut into it either :D

  243. 243

    This is such a wonderful way to share our quilts and enjoy seeing what others are making. I love the inspiration and beauty of so many quilts at one place. Thank you so much.

    Kristy says:

    This is my first year as part of the Blogger’s Quilt Festival, I’m very excited to find some time to sit back and read many of the other posts submitted.

    As for my fabric stash size, gosh. All of my FQs are in a 3 drawn plastic rolling cabinet. The pieces which are bigger then a FQ up to several yards are in a 4 drawer filing cabinet. My scraps are in a small bin; which seriously needs some upgrading.

    Thanks for starting this.

  245. 245
    Elizabeth says:

    Thanks for putting this all together (again) love the picture links those are really great.

    As for my fabric stash I don’t have enough and that’s all I’m going to say.

    Julia says:

    Thank you Amy, for hosting this wonderful “Quilt Show” that we can enjoy from our own homes. You have done a wonderful job. And thanks too for all the sponsors in making it possible.

    Andrea says:

    Thanks for your incredible patience, drive and determination in putting this together, Amy. It’s always so fun! My stash, I thought was wayyyyy too much, but now I’m realizing I hardly have enough for even one quilt. I have lots of fq’s, but nothing to really get anything going I’d say I have about 20 yards of fabric…. and then there’s the vintage sheets I collected, but do they count? ;-)

    Leila says:

    I’ve entered one of my quilts. It’s my first time joining in on the fun, I was a spectator last round. This is a blast thank you!

    Oops!! I just added this comment to the wrong post. My bad!

    My stash just keeps on growing and growing. Like the giant plant in Little Shop of Horrors — “feed me Seymour!”. What can I say, I have Halloween on my mind.
    I just keep on feeding it and well I desperately need to get my fantasy quilts out of my head and into quilts.

  256. 256

    Thanks Amy! I can’t wait to look at all the quilts!

    I have no idea how many yards of fabric I have in my stash. Plenty! But, really, my stash is not that big compared to some!

  257. 257
    Katherine says:

    Thanks for organizing another great quilt festival, Amy!

    I love seeing thumbnails of the entries – very inspiring and delicious eye candy.

    Hmmm… how many yards in my stash? Honestly, I don’t have a clue! I do know that there’s enough to fill several rubbermaid tubs. ;o)

    Thanks for putting this together. I’m ready to start looking at all the quilts. This is my first time participating, and so it’s all very exciting.

    Thanks Amy! I am new to blogging…so hope I completed the task at hand correctly! Thanks for the opportunity to share and to be inspired!

  263. 263

    My stash?? I have six plastic bins full of fabric, plus a bookcase full of fabric. No idea of how many yards. BUT, that doesn’t keep me out of the quilt stores buying more!

  264. 264
    jessica says:

    thanks Amy! i posted about my latest project, finished about an hour ago..
    as for my stash, I’d say I’ve probably got close to 500 yards, but who’s counting?

  265. 265
    Sandy says:

    This is a really cool idea to have an online quilt festival. I love looking at all the quilts. You said something about the yards of fabrics in our stash….I’m sure I don’t have as much as some, but KNOW I have more than others. But even if you have a LOT, you can always use more! I remember one speaker at our Guild said that it was our obligation to buy fabric as quilters. I love that, and so I try to follow it religiously every chance I get!

  266. 266
    Kaye Prince says:

    I’ve written my post and put it up! I originally had a giveaway offering in my post but took it out as soon as I noticed your stipulation not to. Let’s see….I think I have probably about 200-300 yards of fabric in my stash! I’m not really sure, and precuts are very hard to count! I probably have about 150 yards in FQs alone!

  267. 267

    This is my first time joining, but I’ve had so much fun looking at everyone’s fantastic quilts! I made my quilt, for a special little girl who was born with Downs Syndrome. There are so many talented quilters, that lead to much inspiration, but so little time.I’ve already started dreaming of what to make next – maybe something for me to curl up with this winter.

    Thank you for organizing this Quilt festival again!

  268. 268
    BJ says:

    This is so much fun. Thanks for doing this Amy. I love the creative inspiration that comes from sharing. Don’t tell my husband but I have thousands of dollars worth of fabric on hand I think. He has no idea. I have about 30 “quilts” sitting ready to make. I just can’t produce as fast as my stash acquisition. It’s so much fun, and so addictive!

  269. 269

    This is great fun! Thanks for hosting this again, Amy! I have no idea how much fabric I have because it has accumulated a little at a time over the years.

    I have so many yards of fabric just waiting for me to have more time to quilt. It makes me hate my day job. :) I would say that I have at least 15 quilts and all the fabric waiting for me, most of which are queen sized quilts. YIKES.

  273. 273
    Ali Z says:

    I have just passed a morning lost in the beautiful quilts you have featured. The inspiration is amazing and I just want to ignore everything else I need to do today so I can go and play with my fabric. thank you

  274. 274

    I’m excited to be a part of the festival and can’t wait to spend my evening checking out everyones site. As for how many yards I have in my stash… approx 200. yikes!!!

    Quiltingal says:

    What a wonderful idea for quilters to be inspired.

  276. 276

    Hmmm. how many yards in my stash? Quite a bit! I don’t think I want to know & I’ll never be one of those bloggers that says how many yards in/out each week since my MIL reads my blog!

  277. 277
    Joan says:

    Oh thank you so much, Amy for doing this.. I am looking forward to visiting the blogs and get inspired to make more projects. I have posted my favourite quilt project and must admit I would not be able to give you a true figure as to how much fabric I have in my stash. I like to work with pre-cuts so I have a lot of layer cakes, jelly rolls and charm packs. Along with that I have the yardage to match which here in Canada is measured by the meter rather than the yard. Ok .. I’m ready for some serious sight seeing!
    Merci!

  278. 278
    Mary Ely says:

    Hi Amy! Thanks for yet another round of this fabulous event, and I’m so excited to be participating this time!

    Oh goodness, you want to know how many yards there are in my stash? I’d be fearful to count them up . . . it might be scary :-)

  279. 279
    CaraQuilts says:

    I have no idea how many yards of fabric my stash has, and honestly it’s kinda a scary thought to add it up! I do have about 12 WIPs, which is way too many! It’s hard to keep up with the all but they are fun to pick up sometimes and try and figure out what the heck I was thinking! ;)

    Thank you so much for the Bloggers Quilt Festival. This is the first time entering and viewing quilts. This is so fun and the stories are great to read and the quilts are so beautiful. I will be some time going through and seeing quilts and reading stories. Thank you again. Love Lois

    As you know I’m a knitter and crocheter and I have no quilt to share.

    Kim says:

    I plead the 5th on declaring how much is in my stash! : ) I am guessing well over 100 yards but I am actually afraid to count it! Thanks or hosting again Amy! I am looking forward to browsing through all the quilts in the coming days! I love the linky pictures too!

  283. 283

    Tilly Tatas says:

    Just found your blog and have entered the first quilt I made (just this year). I honestly couldn’t say how much fabric I have. I have a few yards of heavy duty cotton and the rest is scrap pieces and several items of old clothing which I intend to repurpose. I have a lap quilt in progress now which is being repurposed from a rather brightly coloured skirt of my daughters.

    Trudi says:

    Wow Amy! Another successful Bloggers Quilt Festival! Hmm, not so sure I can calculate the yardage in my stash, can we just accept ‘excessive’ as a quantity. Outgrown it’s storage (room) and overflowing would be a good description at least! LOL I’m sure I’m not alone!

  292. 292
    Shannon says:

    This is my first time in the festival and I’m so excited! Making a rough estimate, I would have to say there are about 90 yards of fabric in my stash. But I’ve only been at it a couple of years;)

    Lisa Mason says:

    OMG! I figured it out! Very new to all of this, but so happy to be playing along. Thank you Amy for organizing. I’m sure it it a ton of work. Oh . . . you wanted a fun fact didn’t you. Well, I have been quilting on and off since I was 14. Don’t ask. I think I have about 200 yards of fabric, that’s not alot right???? And I believe I have made over 100 quilts so far. I mostly give them to friends.

    I have added my quilt to linky and blogged about the festival here (http://lazylabquiltcompany.blogspot.com/)! Thank you for the opportunity!

    I’m afraid to look at my scraps to see how much I have! I guess in the neighborhood of 6-7 yards???

    Thank you,

It’s great to have all these lovely quilts gathered on ‘one stop shopping’..lol….I have posted my entry this afternoon and as for how much yardage I think I might have….???…LOL….I have always thought of it in dollar signs rather than how much yardage….but I will give a guess of AT LEAST 500 YARDS…eeeeee gads…did I really say that out loud!!!!

  301. 301

    This is my first entry to the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. Thank you for doing this. I guess I probably have about 100 yards of fabric – a lot of it that I dyed myself.

    I am very excited to be part of your Blogger Quilt Festival. This is my second time to participate. Regarding the yardage in my stash — I can only say it is a lot — no clue — and no way to figure out how to start counting. I do keep track of how much I buy and how much I use every year, with a goal of using at least 100 yards more than I buy every year.

    wow!!!! What a fabulous show of quilts!!! I added one to the flicker group. I don’t have a blog so wasnt sure how to do it here. This is awesome!!

  311. 311

    the quilt I blogged for the festival was my 12th quilt. I started it exactly 12 months after I started quilting, and it comprised fabrics that I had used in the previous 11 quilts.

  312. 312

    The thumbnails are awesome! It’s like a mini-quilt show right on your blog.
    How much fabric do I have? No clue!

    Amy:
    this is such a great idea, and likely a whole lot of work to pull it together! Thanks for the opportunity! My stash – small. It needs to grow. I need to go to all these great fabric stores and designers on line and build me a good, modern fabric stash. Goodbye calico and traditional patterns! Hello modern colours and gorgeous prints! I’m looking forward to going through all the quilts.
    Thanks again, Liz

    Lisa Guthrie says:

    What a fabulous festival. I will spend hours surfing through the quilts, and then through blogs finding inspiration and links to new and interesting people and sites. Thanks so much for hosting this – a great idea. The best quilt show I’ve been to this year!!

  316. 316

    This is my first entry for Blogger’s Quilt Festival. I am so excited to be able to meet so many quilters in one place. I am going to be busy visiting all these blogs.
    As far as my stash…..I have no idea. But I am sure it’s over 500 yards, as I am addicted to fabric and always buy way more than I need and I buy it faster than I can use it…
    I added my link and I look forward to meeting alot of new friends.

    Amy says:

    I love seeing all of the beautiful quilts! I have only been quilting a few years, but I guess I have about 100 yards of fabric. I also cross stitch and needlepoint, so I have to spread out my crafting stash money!!! Thanks for the great giveaways!!

    Thanks for hosting and for allowing relatively new quilters/bloggers to share work. I really appreciate it.

    As to how much fabric is in my stash…hmm…I once estimated that, if I could buy no fabric at all, I had about two years at present rate of use. I don’t know how many yards that translates to, but I would call it a safe margin against disaster. :)

    Hi Amy,
    What a wonderful event! Thanks so much for doing the work to organize this festival. I’ve just started quilting and finished my first quilt for a friend’s baby. I’ve already moved onto a new quilt top – a summer picnic quilt using fabrics from my stash. As for how much is in the stash…oh enough to fill a large storage container or two…

    Well I’ve done it Amy – I’ve posted in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival! I hope, hope, hope I’ve done it all right. The most challenging thing for me about blogging is figuring out how to use the computer…. I haven’t got the faintest idea how many yards of fabric are in my stash. I feel challenged by your question to spend a bit of time trying to figure that out. I have fabric all over the place. Thanks for hosting this festival. I am determined to look at as many posts as I can and to comment on them all. Great prizes too.

    One of the very first quilting blogs that I began reading was yours — back when was park city girl – there have been several makeovers since then. You spend so much time organizing this bloggers quilt festival, and this non-blogger enjoys it very much. Thanks, Marcia W

    WOWZA! Quilts Quilts and Quilts! I think I’m even going to be brave enough to link in my first ever non-baby quilt! So great! As a new quilter… my stash keeps growing. I for sure have “eyes bigger than my stomach” but I feel like it’s leveling out, I look at the fabric and feel like the projects are just ready to leap out of the piles. I’ve slowed down buying and started more sewing!

    Your online quilt show just gets bigger and bigger every time you put it on! Thanks again for organizing the show. I washed all of the fabric in my stash this summer and estimate that I have about 100+ yards of fabric in my quilting stash. I have been using up a lot this year as I have had some extra sewing time lately and I have not been buying much fabric lately.

    I have really enjoyed looking at everyone’s projects and seeing more than just the quilt!!

  342. 342

    Amy, thank you for continuting to put the blogger’s quilt festival together!

    My stash is getting very scary, I need to used what I have instead of buying more and more. If I had to guess I have about 20 yards, but it may be more.

    Thank you again !!!!!!

    Miche'le says:

    Oh my goodness, what deep dark secrets can I reveal – well, I know that I have more fabric in my stash than I will ever use in my life time. Some of it I bought years ago and my liking for it is so strong that I just can’t cut into it, instead it hides away in a cupboard protected by other pieces. There is no way I could even guess at how much fabric I have in total and to even try to count it would be worse than standing up and say ” Hi my name is Miche’le and I am a fabricoholic”.
    thank you for the oppportunity of entering my little quilt in your festival.

    Hi Amy!! Thanks for hosting another awesome festival! I love the linky with the photos of the quilts!!

    As far as how many yards of stash….I really don’t have much of a stash. When I buy fabrics, it’s usually with a quilt in mind. I don’t buy too much “just because”. I do have some precuts though, and those are nearly 3 yards each…so I’d have to guess…maybe…20 yards?! Rough guess….LOL!

    Thanks again!

    Now I must hide in my sewing area and sew away. Thinking about all that fabric makes me want to sew sew sew!

    I have WAY too many yards to count. I can tell you that I have a full kitchen sized trash bag (like 13 gallons or something) of scraps from just the last month. I’ve been sewing a lot of things for Fabri-Quilt’s Quilt Market booths, so I have a ton of fabric left over from that stuff.

    That doesn’t even count all the fabric that I’ve purchased. I have many boxes (that I haven’t unpacked from our recent move) to re-wash, iron, and put on my new mini-bolts. Ah! So much to do!

    I’ve made a lot of things for Fabri-Quilt’s Quilt Market booths over the last month or so, so I’ve been sewing a ton lately. Just from this sewing, I’ve collected about 13 gallons of scraps. I have a kitchen sized trash bag filled with scraps and leftovers from all these projects.

    I also have 4 really big boxes crammed with fabric to unpack from our recent move. My plan is to re-wash them, iron them, fold them, and wrap them around my mini fabric bolts. I’m making myself a mini quilt shop in my basement. I’m so excited!

However, I do know the number of yards that I have of my favorite fabric line ‘Make Life’ and that is around 70 yards which is made up of yardage and precuts. I know, I know nuts right. We I do have projects planned for it!
    Thanks again!!!

    Thanks so much, Amy! This was fun and a chance to show my readers something new (actually old) about myself. It is so generous of you to do this for those who can’t attend at Houston…

    Ok Amy, I am in day 2 of this and so far, I haven’t done much sewing. I can’t seem to get myself away from the computer, with so much eye candy to look at. Guess there is a down side to this after all!!! :-) Thanks for opening our eyes to the big quilt world we have in cyberspace once more.

    this has been so much fun so far! i’ve really enjoyed checking out the amazing work of so many quilters – thanks for organizing this event! i’ll be sure to join up again next year :)

    the amount of fabric i have in my stash isn’t entertaining, i don’t think anyway, b/c i have no idea how much i’ve got. let’s just say i haven’t met a vintage or retro-like fabric that i haven’t liked ;)

    hoping this isn’t a double post – it appears as though my previous comment didn’t post?

    fabric in my stash…unknown. just know that i haven’t met a vintage or repro fabric i didn’t like ;)

    Love the way you did the links this year, what a great idea! Thanks for all your hard work Amy.
    How many yards of fabric? I wouldn’t have a clue, but my best guess would be at least a couple of hundred.

  403. 403

    Yards in my stash? Have absolutely no idea, it’s not an overwhelming amount but it sure is enough for me shop from when sewing. I’ll guess that my stash is around 200 yards – it sounds like a lot, but looking at some my yardage pieces which are about 3 yards it sure adds up quickly.

    Thanks for organsing the Blogger’s Quilt Festival – I’m having a wonderful time looking at everyones quilts.

    Donna Cutting says:

    I have so much fun visiting blogs. It is so inspirational and then I can get at using up some of my stash. There are hundreds of yards folded away in the closet. But the new fabrics keep calling me and I buy more. Sure need to do a stash bust.

    The thumbnails are a great idea! Love looking at all the beautiful entries! How much is in my stash? Too much to count … is there a quilter’s anonymous, similar to AA? If so, I think I need to join! Thanks for hosting Bloggers Quilt Festival!

  406. 406

    Hey Amy, Happy quilting to you. I love the festival. I am going to eat some lunch sit back and borrows the quilts.

    Donna Cutting says:

    My closet is full of folded fabric, hundreds of yards, enough for a lifetime, but I love all the new fabrics so I get more. Sure need to do a stash bust. Maybe I should have a quilting party. My mom was visiting and we went into the closet and picked out fabric and made a quilt. No need to go to a fabric store. I should invite people to a come raid my closet and they could make a quilt.
    It is so inspiring to visit the blogs.

    Rachel says:

    That’s a hard question – I have no idea how many yards of fabric I actually have. It keeps growing these days! I would estimate about 50? I tend to buy in 1/2 yard increments (unless I find a good sale), so judging by how many fabrics I have, I think that may be close. But, even with all that fabric, I always seem to need to run out and buy some additional fabrics for different projects. How can that be???

    Thanks for organizing and hosting the festival!!!

  414. 414
    Kaelin says:

    I have so much fabric I don’t know if I could even put a number on it! If I had to guess, I’d probably say something around 300 yards?!

    ….yeah….I didn’t fully realize how sick I was with “fabric fever” until just now!!!

  415. 415

    What wonderful quilts! I love sharing mine, and I can’t wait to check out all the others! Yards of fabric in my stash? No clue. I don’t have a huge stash compared to some… maybe 30 yards?

    Pam A says:

    Amy I just love this Quilt Festival. I really love the new linky with the pictures, that is truly awesome! I am not sure I would want to know how much fabric I have in my stash, I already feel guilty when I buy more. :o Lets just say I have plenty. LOL Thanks again for a wonderful Quilt Festival.

    Amy, Thanks for hosting this wonderful quilt festival. It has been so much fun seeing all the quilts and the wonderful stories.

    I can’t even venture to guess how much stash I have. How about I just confess that I have just over 10 yards that is flying it’s way to me to join the stash family.

    Tiffaney says:

    Amy – Thanks for hosting the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. It has been so much fun visiting all the blogs and reading the quilt stories.

    HI Amy,
    You have created another lovely festival. I particularly like the thumbnail photos of the quilts – It is a beautiful sea of color. I hope to get to visit the many quilts but it is going to take me awhile to get through them.
    I have so much fabric I am too scared to count yardage- I have around 25 boxes full of fabrics- it is sorted and organized enough that I can find what I am looking for usually. It would take more than one very long life time for me to use it…. I do love fabric.
    Thanks for hosting the festival-
    Warmest regards,
    Anna

    As far as how much fabric I have in my stash– I went and did a rough estimate just now, and I think it’s over 400yards! I had no idea. Don’t tell my husband!

    Susan says:

    Amy, where is the list of quilts ? – while the pictures are cool they do not change color like the list does after I have read a quilt entry….. that is how I keep track of what is read and what is not, it takes weeks for me to go one by one through the list….. what gives?

    I don’t have a blog, so I am just a very appreciative viewer. What a fabulous list of quilts and blogs. I have already found several new blogs to add to my daily blogrole.
    I really like the thumbnails this time vs. link list of festivals past… much easier to keep track of where I am. Day 2 of viewing and still only about 25% of the way through the list. LOVING it all. Thanks to Amy and everyone who is participating!

    When you click on my thumbnail photo as well as a few others it will not direct viewer to my blogspot. It has driven me crazy trying to figure it out but I think what has happened is the address prints http:// twice and that makes computer read it wrong and is unable to redirect to blogsite. When you click on my thumbnail it shows http://http:// grannysblooms9.blogspot.com/ and it will come up as error. I noticed maybe a dozen or so that this is happening with.
    I have really enjoyed your doing this and all the quilts. I feel sorry that I have missed comments as I enjoy leaving compliment and encouragement on others sites. This is a very large undertaking and I am not complaining and I don’t know why it does this as two were able to view site but not today. Thank you again. Love Lois

    Hi Amy
    Thank you so much for hosting the quilt festival again. I really enjoy looking at everyone’s quilts and reading the stories behind them.

    I have a huge stash but have disguised it by cutting 3/4 of a ton of it into strips of varying sizes. Since I no longer have THAT fabric in my stash, I can now say it is a wee bit smaller. And it doesn’t help that I have a quilt shop out my back door and am a serious fabriholic! And, I own the shop, lol!

    Thanks again Amy, this is so much fun!

    I’m a little embarrassed to admit the size of my stash…it might be close to 200 yards. Yikes!! But I love every square inch of them!!

    Thank you for hosting the fabulous BQF!

  432. 432

    It took me a few days, but I got my link added! Wow, there are endless hours of surfing here, I am so excited. I just have to say, that I am so excited about The Sewing Summit, and the fact that after living 10 years away from home, I will be moving back just in time to attend :) I can’t wait to meet you and so many other amazing quilters!!

  433. 433

    I started doing some rough math on how many yards of fabric I might have…and then I had to stop. My husband walked in. I’m sure you all would understand!

    Thanks for hosting this Amy. Every year I find new inspiration and even some awesome new blog friends!

  434. 434

    Amy, you’ve stimulated so much sharing in the quiltmaking community with your inspired online Quilt Festival. Even though I’ve been quilting for more years than I can even believe, I still consider myself a relative novice. I’m so happy to be able to explore others’ creativity from the comfort of my home computer. Oh, and I probably have about 1,000 yards of fabric in my stash; I sure wish I could use it up more quickly.

    I sure hope I win some fabric: my stuff is sort of old and tired!
    Hugs,

    I am not sure if my comment b4 made it as my putey did something really strange, but I know I didnt answer your question about how many yards of fabric I have in my stash. If you take into account all my FQ’s and F8’s I am thinking at about 100 yards (I am an Aussie so it really would be about 100 metres), not too mention all the jelly rolls, layer cakes and charm packs i have waiting to be used.

    Thank you so much for hosting this virtual quilt show! Thanks also to your sponsors. I’d be thrilled to win anything, even though I already have approximately – gulp! – 1700 yards of fabric in my stash. I try not to think about it. Actually, I’m trying fairly hard not to buy anything I don’t need for a specific project. It’s a challenge because there are so many wonderful fabrics coming out every month.

    Amy, Thanks for hosting this festival and giving us the opportunity to share the quilt we made for our Nana. Brenna (my daughter) and I spent some quality time snuggled on the couch tonight looking at quilts. So much fun!! I can hardly believe how many entries there are already!

    As for my fabric stash – I have no idea. There is one large vacuum cleaner box packed full of mostly fabric awaiting our move. Plus I have two of those decorative, paper covered boxes full still here in the house. I try to practice restraint, but every once in a while I buy more. :) fabric and books. My weaknesses. :)

  458. 458

    I thought you might like to know that I “found” your blog through your interview with Pat Sloan. I also wanted to thank you, since the Bloggers’ Quilt Festival helped me to think about what I have learned through earlier quilts. (By the way, I am now a grandmother – of twins!)

    I just joined the festival! Thanks for doing this Amy!
    I really couldn’t guess how much yardage is in my stash. Some of my fabric is from before quilting but just can’t get myself to get rid of it yet. I did get rid of just about everything that wasn’t cotton. Now I need to get rid of fabric that is outdated…maybe it could be considered vintage?

    I really couldn’t guess the yardage in my stash. Some of my fabric is from prequilting days that I just can’t seem to get rid of. I did however get rid of just about everything that wasn’t cotton. Now I need to destash outdated fabrics…maybe they can be considered vintage?

    To add a little levity as you’re diligently reading all these comments:

    You Know you are a Quilter If……..

    There’s more Fabric in the House than Food
    “Fat Quarters” are not the heaviest part of your body
    Your ironing board is always set up but you never iron clothes
    You think of your job as an interruption of your quilting time
    You pet Fabric
    People are always picking threads off you
    You can measure a scant 1/4″ by eye
    “Featherweight” Doesn’t mean Boxer
    Your “UFO’s” are not from outer space

    Thank you for hosting the Blogger’s Quilt Festival!

    The quilt I entered is the 1st quilt I ever made. I so enjoy quilting and have at least 15+ current UFO’s. My stash is slowly but surely growing I have no idea how many yards may be in it but I’m sure my husband would tell you it’s too much! lol

    While going out fabric shopping with my sister today to make dresses for her wedding he repeatedly told me, “We have NO $$ for fabric!” lol You’d think he thought I was addicted or something! “Hi, my name is Jennifer and I’m addicted to fabric” ;)

    Just wanted to leave a different kind of comment for you to read. Have a wonderful day! =)

    Wow what a great gallery of quilts, thanks for doing this to coincide with Houston Quilt Festival for all of us who aren’t there.

  473. 473

    Hi Amy,
    Thanks for organising such a wonderful festival. As for our stash, we won 100 fat quarters of Jinny Beyers beautiful fabrics as first prize for one of our group quilts. We’ve used some in our latest quilt but it hardly looks as though we’ve put a dent in the box.

  474. 474

    Been looking so forward to the festival Amy! Just love seeing all the amazing quilts, so many talented artists! Thanks for a great showing everyone!

  475. 475

    Hi Amy,
    I am participating in this Festival, so glad that you are organising it again. Are you really sure that you want to know how many yards of fabric I have??? I have at least 150 yards not yed dyed fabric, guess the same amount of batiks and how many yards of dyed fabric?? Couple of hundred?? I have no clue, but I do know that it is a lot LOL

    I literally stumbled into the quilting blogosphere this spring the week of the BQF. I’m so glad to be participating this go round! I don’t think I’m guessing too wildly when I say that I have about 800yds of fabric. It’s a bit insane actually. A friend of my mother’s, who I have never met, literally out of the blue gave me about 600 yards of fabric (HER ENTIRE STASH FROM QUILTING) because she was giving up quilting for knitting and wanted me to put it to good use in my charity quilting. I will be sewing forever!

  477. 477

    Hello!
    I’m very happy to participate in this festival I’m new at quilting and I feel very excited to share my first quilt that I finished a month ago. I didn’t know I could also enter a giveaway, so there you go, more fun! thanks a lot!

    Hello!
    I’m so happy to participate in this festival! Thanks so much for the chance to win wonderful giveaways too!
    How many yards of stash do I have??? not many, I just started! Probably 10…or less… nothing compared to what I’ve seen lately in other blogs!!!LOL

    Hi Amy, this is such a wonderful way of showing quilts….. and obviously enjoyed by the number of entries and comments…. what a big job you have taken on.

    Thanks for hosting once again the Bloggers Quilt Festival. I’ve been looking at the quilts-they’re wonderful! and yes, I did add a quilt to the festival!

    Shady says:

    WOW! All of these quilts are amazing (and beautiful)!!! It is so much fun to visit all of the blogs and get to “know” new people and their work!
    To answer your question re: “How many yards of fabric are in my stash?”……The answer is – I don’t want to know!! LOL. Because, if I knew – then I wouldn’t be able to “justify” buying/adding any more!! LOL.

    A Blogger’s Quilt Festival, what a great idea. This caused me to learn how to update my brand-new blog with a linky and grabbing a button! So I travel along with this whole new world of blogging, spending more and more time enjoying them, but still getting some quilts made because of the sheer inspiration I find. But I’m not sure I want to face the question of how much fabric I have. Too scary, even for Halloween. Thanks for the show.

    Pam says:

    Wonderful! I’m all inspired now…just need more fabric of course! I’ve depleted my stash too much teaching my sweet daughter the gift of sewing!

    Linda says:

    I am late entering in my comment because of the INTERNATIONAL QUILT MARKET in Houston, which has been SO MUCH FUN!!! Will post about it soon, with pictures of creators and designers of my favorite fabrics. I started this quilting blog a year ago, after seeing your quilt festival then. I was so intrigued, and worked very hard for 6 months, learning all there is to know about blogger to be ready to enter a post last spring. Thank you Amy, and all your sponsors for bringing us together. What a wonderful place to share and learn from each other.

    You want to know how much fabric I have in my stash??? Quite frankly, I don’t think I want to know, maybe close to 500 yards, and I’ve only been quilting 3 or 4 years! and gave away 2 big boxes last week. Definitely addicted!

  489. 489
    Brita says:

    OK, so I didn’t learn so well. I have a new Blog, where I learned to do the linky and the button grab because of this Blogger’s Quilt Festival. But when I tried doing this comment, it disappeared into … somewhere. But boy, have I learned to browse blogs well!!! I do get so much inspiration that I’m still able to get some quilting done. In fact, maybe more since I’m motivated! How much fabric do I have? Too scary to think about, even for Halloween!

    Yeah! I am so excited to participate! As for yards of fabric I have at least 12 bookselves full! My goal is to clear out the old and pare it down alot!

  492. 492
    Ann Marie says:

    Thanks for hosting, Amy. How much yardage do I have in my stash? Too much? Oh, no, that’s not possible or I wouldn’t have to go to the quilt shop now and then to buy a specific fabric/color for a quilt. Let’s just say “Lots!”

  493. 493
    Jackie Ro. says:

    Hi! I just found you through a link from “Wish Upon a Quilt”‘s blog and have now linked up through My Google, so I may be a part of this fun. I’ll think which quilt I’d like to share. :)

    Dear Amy, thanks for hosting this amazing festival again! It’s the first time I’m participating but last year I was just observing (and absorbing). hehe
    posted about this in my blog, the link is: http://auroracosecose.blogspot.com/2010/10/bloggers-quilt-festival.html and also I put your button with the link back to here. Should I do something else? Maybe I missed something in your instructions (english is not my first language.

    Kimberly says:

    I love the mini picture links this year. Very fun! Thanks for hosting this. I cannot imagine all of the work that goes into it.
    Um, I don’t know that I want to admit how many yds of fabric i Have in my stash… I would guesstimate that it’s close to 75 yds. I only know that because of how I store my fabric. It’s on boards and I know I have gone through 2 pkgs of 100 but that not all of that is yardage.

  496. 496
    Barb in MI says:

    My first BQF! And I would not had finished my quilt if it wasn’t for your One thing- One Week challenge.
    Thank you so much for organizing the 4th BQF – ther is so much creativity out there! As for my stash – I don’t even dare to estimate, probably about 120 yards. There are just too many beautiful fabric lines out there…

    Nana Jo says:

    This quilt was made for one of my granddaughters. It is called “Bubbleflies”. It is the first quilt that I did free style quilting rather than just stitch in the ditch.

    What a great idea! Please check out my website at http://www.farmersdotter if you like to go on retreats, like old fashioned, vintage quilt patterns, of if ya need someone to do a trunk show with vintage quilts!

    I am a newbie quilter so I don’t have that much of a stash. Guessing about 5 yards max (including cut projects waiting to be put together).

    This is my first entry into the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. What a great idea you have! I decided to post one of my mom’s quilts in her honor, as she is my quilting inspiration. The world lost a great quilter when she passed, and I’m so glad to share her work with the quilting world now. Thanks so much for doing this, Amy.

  503. 503

    How many yards do I have in my stash? I have ABSOLUTELY no idea! Since I make scrappy quilts with as many fabrics as possible I have a wide variety but most are not over 1/4 yard. My prints are mostly Kaffee Fassett and I use batiks and bright small allover prints as well.

  504. 504
    Shannon Lowe says:

    I did it! I bit the bullet and entered my quilt!
    Hmmmmm… I just started quilting less than a year ago. Approximately how many yards of fabric do I estimate that I have? Probably close to 200 – 300. Yes, yards!!!!
    Obsessed much? :)

    Kari says:

    There is no way I’m adding up how much fabric I have! I don’t want to know and I really don’t want my husband to know. :)

    Anne Marie says:

    Hi ..
    I am so pleased to joining in on this Bloggers Quilt Festival with my Tisket and Tasket Quilt, a free BOM from Bunny Hills Design.
    I have choosen this quilt because it is made as a coproduction with my mother who is 82 years old. She has always wanted to be a quilter but life did not want that for her. She is therefore very happy to learn the skill from me whenever she is visiting me.
    Thanks for making this event possible!!
    How much fabric I have in my stash?? Hmm a lot and maybe way to much but I love every little bits and pieces of it ;-))

  507. 507
    Joyzelle says:

    Excited about a new festival. Thank…looking forward to all the wonderful inspiration. I don’t have any idea how much fabric I have in my stash, especially because it is stashed in 4 separate areas. Maybe that is so it doesn’t look too overwhelming??? Not sure but especially because my sewing area is really limited so I work very hard to keep what I currently available but cleared out of everything else so I have a place to work. But as you can guess as a quilter the “other” stuff is often in the works for something new.

  510. 510

    Thank you Amy for organizing all of this. I am much more of a project stasher, and I would say that I have about 25 projects organized in my stash. Blogging though as shown me how many gorgeous fabrics there are out there, and I do admit to buying fabric, just because it is pretty.

  511. 511
    Audrey says:

    I finally got my quilt finished and posted! Yay! I am so glad you do this festival. It is so much fun to look through everyone’s beautiful quilts! I think I have 15-20 yards of fabric. I really started accumulating it when I started sewing dresses! Before dresses, I would only buy fat quarters when I was just quilting.

    I have put a link back to this post, but am not sure what you mean by #3 in your instructions, but will look into it. Maybe I will figure it out.

    And, I wish I could tell you how many yards of fabric I have, but I truly do not know. It is safe to say I am a fabricholic, it there is such a thing. In my defense though, I do use my fabrics.

    Oops I forgot to leave a comment.

    I am enjoying visiting the blogs, learning much and leaving comments. Some of them are not allowing comments which is unfortunate.

    Dree says:

    I am so glad I thought about this for a few days. Entered a quilt I had nearly forgotten about, though I am not sure how I could have managed to.

    I have no idea how much I have in my stash. My husband would say too much, but I would guess less than everyone else entering!

  527. 527
    Carol Hansen says:

    I am enjoying visiting the blogs. Will definitely take me a while since I want to comment at as many as possible.

    I posted my quilt hours ago, but forgot to comment here! I’m so glad that you host this! As for yardage in my stash, I have NO idea, but I know it fills four 18 gallon totes, two boxes and two drawers in my craft cabinet. Probably enough that I don’t have much, if any excuse, to buy more for a long time. HA!

    Mandy says:

    Hello! I just wrote my post and it’s scheduled for tomorrow! I’ll link it up then :)

    Kaye says:

    Thanks, Amy, for organizing this. The quilts are amazing! I don’t have much yardage in my stash really, but I am a complete sucker for fat quarters. I have literally hundreds of them. And now I am starting on charm packs and layer cakes. There’s something about a bundle of fat quarters all tied up or a neat stack of charm squares that just calls to my heart!

  534. 534
    Shanna says:

    I posted a blog post about my first quilt. I have links in there back here, although the button isn’t perfect. . . time will help me learn all of this.

    My stash is a about 200 yards I’m guessing. It really does add up fast. This estimate is because I have a lot of potential backings for the many items. Okay and the many yummy items I’ve been picking up on my travels around the region.

  535. 535
    Melissa says:

    Now that I am all hooked up, I will have to find the time to read everyone’s stories. Your festval may go on for a week but the entries will keep me busy for a long. long, time.Thanks for getting this going again.

    Caroline says:

    This is my first time entering your festival. I owe a lot to the blogging quilters community. So many great people, all happy to share their skills with newcomers such as myself.

    I did a quick ballpark inventory and this is what I figured I have in my stash.
    100-120 fat quarters
    50 yards of quilting cottons prints
    15 yards of quilting cottons solids
    20 yards of hand died quilting cottons
    30 yards of satin and brocades
    40 yards of various fabrics for dressmaking
    and one 20-gallon bin of scraps -mostly novelty prints collected for I-spy and doll clothes

    Ok I’m truly ashamed I managed to accumulate this much in only 3 years although there are a lot of freebies in this mix. But I’m also having way too much fun sewing and quilting…

    Hi Amy,
    Thanks so much for doing the B.Q.F. again. It’s so much fun to see all the quilts!

    Let’s see, a little info about me. I have no idea how many yards of fabric I own. A LOT! I have the “Great Wall of Fabric” in my studio – 2 big bookcases from Ikea, full!

    Oh, and I won the Block Lotto today! I’ll be receiving 48 wonky star blocks! (www.blocklotto.blogspot.com) I’m so excited and happy, I’m jumping up and down!

    Happy quilting,
    Sharon

    Thanks Amy for hosting such a great event. I am enjoying it so much. In my stash I have thousands of meters(yards) of fabric, as I own my own fabric company where I design modern fabrics for quilters. I really love fabric.

    I know this is probably for the entrants, but I think I probably only have abut 10-15 yards in my stash.

    I’m so excited about my first quilt festival, both online and in person. This is such a great, inspiring website.

    So much fun! Thanks, Amy! I love knowing others share my love of fabric. I’m forced to admit that my stash ranges from the 1970’s, when I worked at a fabric shop in college, to the present day, and incorporates parts of my mom’s and grandma’s stashes, inherited when they died. Sewing and quilting connects me to them!

  561. 561
    Teresa says:

    Since I just started quilting this year, I haven’t built up much of a stash. At least I don’t think I have. I probably have a total of 10 yards of various fabrics, a couple layer cakes, a jelly roll and about 20 fat quarters. And I have plans for most of them.

    Liz says:

    Thanks for the effort made to organize this project. I didn’t know what to expect but it has surpassed my expectations. As a matter of interest I can estimate that I probably have a kilometre of fabric. I can count my thimbles (10) not all used at the same time; scissors – 12, also not used simultaneously; and threads 49 – quite a few repeat colours.
    Thanks again. I will be better prepared for the next event

    Thank you for all the work you put into this festival Amy – it’s so much fun!
    Now, how much fabric do I have in my stash? Wow, I’m afraid to start counting and measuring, and you know what? I’m not gonna! LOL! I store my fabric in plastic mushroom crates and there are fifteen of them now, completely packed with fabric. I would probably have enough to keep me making quilts for the rest of my life without buying another piece ever. But we all know that’s not an option right? ;-)

  575. 575
    Cassie says:

    I was debating participating all weekend and finally decided to just go for it, so thank you for inspiring me! I probably have….I don’t know 30ish yards of fabric…I tend not to buy unless it is for a specific project so a bunch of that will be gone in the next few months.

    Thanks so much for hosting this Amy! This is such a great way to become involved in the online quilting community. :D

    I’m not really sure how much yardage is in my stash, but I did count through my Oriental collection the other day, which makes up most of what I have. So, not counting the handful of fabrics already separated in project boxes, I currently have 155 different Oriental fabrics in my stash and am on the lookout for more. :)

    Thanks again!

    As for the stash – I’m hopeless at estimating yardages but as I’ve only been quilting for two years I guess I can say it’s a lot smaller than most. :)

    I love this- and thanks for letting any and all participate.
    I’m still pretty new to quilting, so my stash is actually pretty manageable- it can all fit in one big rubbermaid tote. I’m sure that will change, though.

    I love this festival- thanks for making it open to anyone to participate. It’s so inspiring to browse all these pages.

    Thanks for doing this, again, Amy! I’ve had such a great time making my way through the quilts and leaving comments.

    How many yards of fabric in my stash? Hmmmmm….I don’t do very much stash shopping. I like to have a project in mind so I know I have enough fabric to complete it. BUT, maybe 20 yards (and 1 layer cake :-) ).

    Thanks so much for going to the trouble of pulling all this together! No doubt, it’s one of the coolest events out there in blogland!

    Thanks again for hosting! This is the closest I get to participate in a quilting show. I have over 20 spools of color thread. And when it’s on sale, I still buy more! Even if I have the color already. The addiction is just as bad as my fabric addiction.

    If I had to estimate how many yards of fabric I have in my stash I would say 150…it would be interesting to actually find out for sure.

    This is my first time in the Bloggers Quilt Festival. I heard about it last year from my friend Lollyquiltz so I was so happy to be a part of it this year! My stash is so big and organized for me in my disorganization!! Oh dear, more scrappy quilts to make!! Thanks Amy for all your work!!

    Susan McKey says:

    How many yards? Are you trying to embarrass us? Too Many, is the answer. And I vow to make it a much smaller, less embarrassing pile by next year.

    Thanks for all your hard work helping us all be better artists. I appreciate your talents!

    Best…

    Thank you for hosting such a wonderful event Amy – I just love it! As to how many yards of fabric are in my stash, I’m not 100% sure, but it would somewhere in the 10 – 20yds range I should think. Thanks again, Kathleen.

    Jo Chu says:

    I think all my scraps together measure less than a yard. I’m still new to quilting so I haven’t built up a stash yet.

    Phew! Loads of great quilts to admire and to read about!

    I refuse to figure out how many yards of fabric I have in my stash. I’ve been quilting for close to 15 years, and once…about 10 years ago…I figured that I had enough to make a dozen king sized quilts. And now I have at least 50% more.

    Thanks to the wonderful sponsors of the giveaways!

    Pat Winter says:

    I collect many small pieces of fabrics no larger than quarter yards or less for crazy quilting so it would be hard to imagine how many yards in my stash….I would have to guess 250 yards of fancy fabrics and 100 yards of cottons.

    Thank you for hosting this wonderful festival again. I’ve hadsuch a fun timelooking at quilts and discovering great blogs that I’d probably not have found otherwise. Its lovely to see the proud work of others and to be able to share my own.

    Can’t even hazard a guess on amount of fabric I have in stash – quite enough to make many, many, many more quilts. But I like to think of it like paint – artists can’t create without a good colour palette availble to them to try out and neither can we!

    The festival is a great opportunity to connect with new quilters and to see new blogs. As a “small fish” in blogland, I love having new people find my blog as well. My stash is mainly in fat quarters – it fills an entire (repurposed) baby armoire and I’m trying to keep it from expanding beyond the cabinet but I’m not succeeding!

    Hi Amy! Love this festival, thanks! Yards of fabric…probably about 500, but if you ask my husband…I have 5000! ;)

    Dorothy says:

    Amy, I forgot to tell you about the size of my stash. Would you believe 300+ yards of quilting fabric. I’ve been quilting for about 15 years, and my taste has changed over time.
    I’ve been trying to use up some of this fabric by making lap quilts for the charity group in our guild.
    Thanks again Amy.

    What a wonderful way to get to a quilt show!!! And I love everything I see. And you don’t have to dress up. Great for getting the creative juices flowing.
    I have no idea how many yards of fabric but I’m sure it’s way over 500…… time to reduce I think. But I have several ideas brewing from the show.

    Hi ! I DID IT !! my first festival ! I checked and it seems to have worked ; So here it is ! yay !

    I’ve been trying to comment for 2 days now but its been broken! Thankyou for th wonderful quilt festival Amy, my black and white Headliner Quilt has been submitted! I soooo love looking at all these lovely quilts, such an inspiration to lil’ old me. This is only my second proper quilt!

    Laurie says:

    Thanks for the opportunity to participate! There is no way I know how much yardage is in my stash – it is definitely way too much though.

  614. 614

    Amy this is a wonderful idea. It’s just so much fun to see all the quilts. Thanks for hosting. I’ve did a post and added one of my quilts. I really don’t have much yardage about 2 yards of cotton scraps. And about 40 yards of fannel – which is way too much. I’ll be using that up this year.

    Totally loving the new display with the thumbnail pictures!! Thanks for putting this together with great sponsors once again too!

    As for my stash, my gosh, I hesitate to even try to estimate how big it is. TOO big. I think I could not buy another fat quarter the rest of my life and still not finish using up my stash!

    Lisa says:

    Hmmm, it would be really hard for me to guess how much yardage I have condsidering all the precuts/fat quarters too, but I’d have to say at least 75 yards, probably alot more. LOL.
