Bloggers’ Quilt Festival :: Spring 2011


Posted on May 13th, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival. 652 comments

Welcome to the Festival!  I hope that you have a quilt to share with everyone!  Everyone is welcome to join in the fun, and encouraged to enter a quilt.  No matter your skill level or how many quilts you have completed, there’s no judging in our festival.  So join the fun, make some new friends, and be inspired!

***I know that many of you blogging with blogger, are not able to post due to the outage.  I’m so sorry for your frustration, and I’m trusting that you will be able to post before the week is up.

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.
  5. Visit all the other quilters sharing their quilts and be inspired!

  1. Just to let you know – http://www.blogger.com is down right now for maintenance. Looks like they’re experiencing some more serious problems … so it might take a little while before bloggers with a xx.blogspot.com address can access their dashboards again (therefore – I can’t post my quilt right now … I just hope that the draft will be waiting for me when I can access it again!) Anyway, thanks for hosting this Festival – can’t wait to visit all those lovely quilts!

  2. Blogger is down for maintenance at the moment, figures this happens on the day we’ve all been waiting for! As soon as it’s up and running again I will post my entry. Fingers crossed it’s soon!

  6. Amy, I could not figure out how to get your button in my post so I just linked to your BQF post. I will keep trying and update my post if I am successful. Thanks for this wonderful Festival. It’s a big reason I started blogging!

  7. Thanks for doing this again Amy ! I enjoy joining since you are one of the online help and inspiration that I can make quilts ! I appreciate all of your work you do , tutorials , and festivals ! I love your book and am working on my 2nd quilt from it . Thanks to all the sponsors for the WONDERFUL prizes !!

  8. Looking forward to another great festival….as soon as Blogger gets their act together and I can actually post my entry :S
    Thanks Amy, as always!

  9. Amy I am having the same difficulty as mentioned. I cannot access my dashboard, and my post from yesterday is gone. I hope only temporarily, as I wrote my QF post yesterday morning. Thanks for hosting again. Hope to be back online soon.

  10. Wow, you have lined up some totally amazing sponsors this time around. And I can’t wait to get a chance to sit down and look at all the quilts!

  11. Thanks for doing this for us yet again, Amy! It’s disappointing that blogger is taking so long to solve their problem. If it’s not done soon, I won’t have a chance to post until tomorrow. But, at least I can get this comment in for my entry!

  21. Come on blogger! I want to write my BQF post and then sit down with a cuppa and look at everyones gorgeous quilts.
    Oh well the later it gets the more likely it is that that cuppa might change to a glass of vino (its already 5pm in the UK)

  22. This is my first time for Blogger’s festival. How cool is this? I just wish Blogger wasn’t down so I could actually put in my link. Sigh…hopefully they’ll get it working soon!

  53. Hooray! Thank you so much, Amy, for hosting yet another fabulous Blogger’s Quilt Festival. Not even Blogger could keep me away. :) And such beautiful quilts!!

  54. I think I panicked a bit when blogger was down, but all is good. Thanks for putting in the time and effort for this fabulous forum to see all the wonderful variety in the blogger’s quilting world!

  55. Amy, thanks so much for another fab time viewing all the quilts in the BQF Spring 2011.

    And thank you for having me on your site as the Featured Quilter for Monday, May 9th. After our interview, I sort of forgot about it — and even though you reminded me in an email last week, I forgot again! (Now that I qualify for AARP I guess I can truly call it a ‘senior moment.’ :) )

    Anyways, I was amazed to see the traffic on my blog, Artelicious, spike, especially in older posts, like “My First Quilt.” Ah-ha! I looked at Blogger’s “audience” stat and saw my name! :) Thank you for giving me such a thrill.
    Hugs, Tina in San Diego

  56. Thanks for hosting this again, I enjoy it so much!! I love that you show thumbnails of the quilts here too, having the preview is so inspiring.

  68. This is so much fun! Finally got my post done and linky in… too bad I have to go grocery shopping before sitting down to click on all the fabulous entries above me. So many I look forward to checking out! Thanks, Amy, for this wonderful armchair festival!

  71. Thank you for doing this, Amy, and making it so easy and rewarding. I am so excited to share one of the first quilts I ever did free motion quilting on. It is a little one, for my grandson’s bedroom wall, but it is special to me! It was part of his Christmas present in this past year.

  72. Thanks for doing this again! I tried to link up tonight but while it shows my photo, it also shows a red x under it. I should be #188 if this worked and if not, I’ll be back and try again tomorrow.

    Thank you again, your time and efforts are much appreciated b/c I love seeing all these other quilts and being inspired by so much creative genious out there.

  108. Amy thanks for letting us participate and share our quilts throughout the world.It is exciting to know other people who share the same sewing madness!

  109. Maybe this is where I am supposed to comment. I am unsure about the linky thing you posted in your requirement. This is all new to me. I was refered to your sight by a friend. I am still learning as always.
    Any way this is my quilt that I have had in a challenge with a quilt guild a few years ago. I won. But really so did all who participated.
    Thank you for allowing us to share with like minded .

  110. Amy, this is my first online quilt festival to participate in(if I am successful at all the links I am more computer literate than I thought). Thank you and your sponsers for hosting it. Now I need to get a cup of coffee and start browsing quilts.

  128. Thanks so much for hosting again Amy – this is a wonderful endeavour! I really look forward to seeing everyone’s posts – what an incredible pool of creativity and talent there is here. Amazing.

  129. Hi I have entered a quilt in Blogger’s Quilt Festival. It’s the first time I have entered anything and was a little nervous. I have only been quilting since last August and am in awe of the fabulous quilts I have seen. Since entering I have had some lovely comments from people so even if I do not win any giveaways I am happy with the positive response. So if any newbies out there are hesitating to enter – do it – I am glad I did. Thank you for hosting this Festival. Linda x

  135. I entered your quilt blog festival for the first time (#349). This is actually the first show that I have ever had a quilt in and I am loving it. Thank you for hosting this great festival and give away!

  136. Hi Amy, I just found you because so many people were talking about the Bloggers quilt festival! What a cool idea! I have entered my little quilt and am off to get inspired by some of the others who have entered – thanks for hosting!

  140. Thanks Amy for hosting this wonderful quilt festival! I love getting to see all the beautiful quilts and reading the stories behind them!

  141. I love the quilt festival. It gives us all a wonderful opportunity to share. It is a wonderful addition this time that you have the thumbnails – so much easier to preview the quilts.

  142. HI Amy,
    Thanks for hosting another wonderful Blogging festival. I finally got my entry up this evening. I think I did all the steps right.
    I am off to read about some of the other beautiful quilts. Thanks for celebrating the work of quilters around the globe. There are always some wonderful quilts to see and stories to read.

  149. Thanks again Amy for hosting the wonderful Bloggers’ Quilt Festival! I’m a little late to the party-wow! I’m no. 414! What a wonderful group of quilters and their beautiful quilts.

  150. Oh my…this is fantastic!! I am going to visit each and every site on here…but I have to get back to work right now..lol..The quilts are gorgeous….beautiful work and so inspiring….

  151. Thanks so much for hosting this. So many times I just make a quilt, be happy it’s finished and move on. It’s nice to really think about what you’ve learned and sort of re-live the process!

  152. Thank you for offering a place to see “real-life” quilters. Truly inspiring to see what other normal, real people are doing….and know that I can do that too!

  153. Thank%20you%20for%20offering%20a%20place%20to%20see%20%22real-life%22%20quilters.%20Truly%20inspiring%20to%20see%20what%20other%20normal%2C%20real%20people%20are%20doing….and%20know%20that%20I%20can%20do%20that%20too!

  154. There are not enough space in the “website” field for the entire website address, so have used a “tiny url” instead. I’ve never seen your site before or heard of an online quilt festival – my thanks to my daughter-in-law (QuiltGenius.com) for sharing this lovely site!

  155. WOW!! I am so impressed!!! The quilt I posted is my first quilt. It took me a year and a half to complete (due to procrastination from lack of confidence!!) and I just finished it last week!! The quilts posted are lovely and definitely something to aspire to one day.

  156. WOW!!%20I%20am%20so%20impressed!!!%20The%20quilt%20I%20posted%20is%20my%20first%20quilt.%20It%20took%20me%20a%20year%20and%20a%20half%20to%20complete%20(due%20to%20procrastination%20from%20lack%20of%20confidence!!)%20and%20I%20just%20finished%20it%20last%20week!!%20The%20quilts%20posted%20are%20lovely%20and%20definitely%20something%20to%20aspire%20to%20one%20day.

  157. Thanks for taking the time and energy to put this together again! I love checking out the amazing quilts! I always add a few more quilts to my “to do” list!!

  159. Wow! I’m number 438!! Thanks for putting this festival together. I’m enjoying all the quilts. Would somebody come make my family dinner??

  160. Great to be a part of BQF again! I find it a little ironic that the girl who started BQF frro those who couldn’t get to Quilt Market is now a part of Quilt Market herself…

  161. I love the Blogger’s Quilt Festival, it’s so inspiring to see everyone’s work. My stash is a bit out of control & I don’t have the courage to count actual yardage as I’m sure the final number would be a bit scary & make me feel slightly guilty.

  162. Thanks for organizing the quilt festival. It’s such an amazing exhibit! I’m having a wonderful time looking at all the quilts!

  163. Thanks so much AMY for an AMAZING event!!! Im having such a blast looking through each of the quilts! There is so much inspiration. xx Im off to keep browsing…xx

  164. I waited till today to post my quilt, because not only is today exactly one year since I started quilting, it is also my 400th post. The opportunity to have all three occur on the same day seemed too good to pass up.

  165. I love BQF! I’m taking advantage of a quiet minute to finally get my post up. You have been SUPER busy this month! Congrats again on all your recent successes! You are amazing!

  166. i uploaded a quilt to the flickr pool. everyone is so creative and talented. lots of pretty eye candy. thank you for hosting.

  173. Hi Amy…looking forward to checking out all the quilts….Thanks for organizing the fabulous festival!!! It was so great to meet you at quilt market…. xoxoxoxo

  174. I’ve looked at only half of the quilts so far and I’m so in awe of all the talent! I was a bit embarrassed to enter my little quilt but the design is just so adorable and it is the cutest one I’ve made so far, so I just went for it! (Not my own design, by the way, hope that is ok!)

  175. I just found this wonderful festival and entered one of my old favorites. Next year I will have to plan ahead so I have something wonderful to contribute. So many beautiful quilts!
    Thanks for hosting.

  176. Thanks so much Amy for hosting the festival! So far I’ve seen a lot of the entries and they’re just amazing. Always so great to hear the progress of them also. Have a great day

  177. Thanks so much Amy for hosting this wonderful festival again. We all appreciate having a place to share our work and to see the beauty that others have created. Have a great day

  178. thanks amy!! what a wonderful thing this is twice a year. fantastic to be able to share our pieces and to see what others have created. so inspiring. have a great day

  179. I am thinking a lot on signing this festival. For two reasons, one that I do not consider myself a skilled in sewing quilts, the other reason was that the blanket, what I prefer to introduce, is not complete yet. My friend encouragement eventually send it to you.

    Thank you, and I congratulate everyone

  180. Hi Amy :-) One of your participants had linked up to Sumo’s Sweet Stuff’s Market Yourself Monday. I followed the link to her blog, and then her link to your party.

    I have always had this thing for quilts! And now thanks to you I have an easy way to view LOTS of them. Thanks! :-D

    I had hoped to link up the quilt I made last spring for our grand daughter, but you very clearly stated new postings only. Aw well.
    If you personally would like to see it, you can find it here –> http://thebzhousethatlovebuilt.blogspot.com/2010/06/green-quilt.html.

    While I am not participating in your party, I did do a posting promoting it. ;->

  189. (Looks like you have a lot of track-backs up there in the comments area.)

    Thanks for doing this blogger’s festival again. I appreciate the time you take to host us all. I’ve already added about 10 people to my Google Reader from posts I’ve found today. So many great ideas and it’s quite fun to read lots of blogs (so I’m slow at getting around). Very cool Quilt Show!

  190. ok…am trying again. just want to let you know how much all your efforts are appreciated. so fun to see the creativity of everyone. thanks again!!

  193. Yippee Skippee for Blogger’s Quilt Festival!!! Thank you for the motivation I needed to pull out an old quilt top and finish it up :) I am so excited for the hours of surfing this is going to provide :)

  194. What a wonderful festival of quilts – I sure hope I can get to all the blogs. I have added my story and thank you so much Amy for orchestrating all of this wonderful. Judy C

  195. Thank you so much for this fun event! I found you from Liz @Living My Sweet Life! I don’t pretend to be in the same category as these amazingly beautiful quilts! But I’m happy to share my T Shirt Quilt that I made for my daughter who is graduating from high school next week!

  196. Amy – Thanks so much for hosting such an awesome festival. I enjoy browsing all the blogs and seeing all the beautiful quilts. I’m so happy I entered one myself this time! Thanks again.

  197. Hi again Amy :-)
    yesterday I commented that I wouldn’t be linking up the quilt that I had made for my grand daughter, seeings how only new postings were allowed. Others then encouraged mt to again feature it (in a new posting) and link it up, so I did.

    the thing is, even though I have linked it, and deleted it, and again linked it, ten times total I think, I can not get the name to show up. I also do not know how to just ‘refresh’ it.

    So-o, my quilt is the unnumbered, unnamed one, in slot #537. the title is suppose to be ‘my thrifty quilt’. And this is the link to it – http://thebzhousethatlovebuilt.blogspot.com/2011/05/my-thrifty-quilt.html

    I have started my process of working my way through each and every linked up quilt. What a beautiful task I have taken on ;-> Thanks for making it available for my viewing pleasure. Such inspiration!!

  209. I guess I might be one of the last quilts up, i took photos yesterday but they were terrible, so I had to go back today. I felt a bit funny hanging my quilt in the middle of what used to be the busiest street in Christchurch. It was the closest I’ve been to the worst of the devastation and just unbelieveable. I’ve been hanging my quilts on earthquake fences for a while now to photograph, and I guess I’ll be doing it for a whole lot longer, there are a lot of fences in Christchurch… anyway just wanted to say thanks for the motivation to get out there and also to admire possibly the nicest quilt I’ve made. It makes me happy to look at, and we have to hold onto happiness don’t we??
    Hugs

  210. This was a great opportunity to see others quilts and to show off my treasured quilt as well. Thanks for letting me share with you and your quilt festival attendee’s and participants.

  211. Awwww, wish I had a quilt to enter this time around, but alas, my sewing machine has been quiet! I’d love to be entered in your giveaway though as you have awesome sponsors as always, Amy :-) Can’t wait to do some browsing through all the talented quilters from around the world!
