Bloggers’ Quilt Festival :: Fall 2011


Posted on October 28th, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival. 672 comments

Welcome to the Festival!  Each fall and spring when we gather online to share quilts, I’m so inspired, and even more encouraged by this fantastic community of quilters!  Thank you all for sharing your quilts, and their stories, for me each story is just as important, as the work put into the quilts.  The story is where we get a sense of you, the maker, and the love put into each stitch.

Please know that your skill level, or style of quilts are not in question – everyone is welcome to participate.  Join in the fun!  Make some new friends while you browse the show, and be inspired!

First up, a big THANK YOU to our sponsors!  They have generously donated prizes for all of you to win.  Be sure to stop by their shops, browse our vendor mall, while taking in all the quilts.  They love being the suppliers for all your fabric and sewing needs!

Next, as you make your way through all the quilts, email me if you find a quilter that you think would make a great feature here (or your friend, that needs a boost!).  I’m always looking for more Featured Quilters!

Finally, be sure to leave a comment on this post, to be entered to win one of the fabulous giveaways.  Good Luck!

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!
  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 - 


 


Add your post to the linky, and leave a comment to be entered to win!  The red X is only seen on your computer, it gives you the option to edit/delete your link if necessary.  Pull up a comfy chair and enjoy the show!  If you have a question, please email me directly, as questions in the comments will not be answered quickly, I will do my best to help.

Enjoy!!

Amy

  64. Thanks for the opportunity to participate in your Bloggers’ Quilt Festival! This is the first time I’ve done so. I enjoyed “a trip down memory lane” as I recalled the places I went and processes I experienced to create my “Snowflake Medallion” quilt.

  65. Sorry, I can’t tell you about a quilt I’ve never made. I a wantobe quilter. I wanted to get started on one, but with all the holidays and trying to make things for them. I won’t get time until after Christmas. Hope to get some done them. Love your blog. Also all the ideas and help you give us. Would love to be able to enter, but alas. I love seeing everyone’s quilts and blogs. Thanks.

  67. I made this quilt for the local quilt show. IT is made from a kit but I found it quilte challenging. I couldn’t decide what motif to place in the center of the blank square. Some of the fabrics had circles on it so that meant pebbles would be ok to add. I love feathers and so I was set. I drafted the design, markded my top and I was off to the races. I think it turned out ok. I learned that problems can cause you to grow if you stop complaining and look at it from a different angle.

  68. Yay! My doctor just put me on bed rest until my twins are born. I’m glad I will have something to occupy me for a few days. I plan to read each and every post! AND I just joined pinterest! Bring on the inspiration!

    Thanks to all the quilting blogging community that inspire and teaches me daily!

  89. Thanks for letting me enter the Fall festival. I started this quilt 2 years ago when I was inspired by the beautiful fall fabric from Moda by Sandy Gervais. In the mean time I moved and found it again a few weeks ago and knew I had to have it for my fall decorating. I quilted it on the long arm using a pantograph with leaves and swirls. Thanks for letting me share.

  119. In the huge expanse of the Internet having events like these is great – as a new blogger it is so inspiring to see what others do – and how prolific so many people are – also to know that there are people as passionate about their hobby as I am.

  132. (I posted a comment… and it never showed up, so my apologies if there are 2)
    I am so looking forward to looking at at the quilts and reading the stories. One of the thing I miss the most living in South Africa, is quilt shows and festivals. So I will enjoy some coffee and lovely quilts over the next few days. Thanks AMY!

  133. What fun to cruise around the ‘net & check out all the fab quilts.Sort of compensates for not being at Houston Festival and no airfare or hotel expenses and we can shop our our jammies!

  164. Sadly I don’t have a quilt to submit. I just learned the skill and I have been having fun quilting. I am motivated to make more especially with designs I have seen here today. I had fun visiting and thank you for the ideas.

  165. Bloggers Quilt Festival

    This is my entry for the Bloggers Quilt Festival . I was so inspired by all the wonderful quilts on display, I know I’m going to have lots of fun reading over the next few days.
    This is a quilt that I finished just as I began my blog in January. A friend gave me the pattern for this quilt back in 1996, I think. It is a Karen K. Stone pattern called Indian Orange Peel. I kept putting the pattern aside as it looked just too complicated. Finally I felt I should try it before I was too old to comprehend the directions. [Image] Indian Orange Peel
    [Image] Backing I started the quilt in late November and was finished with the top before Christmas in 2009. It took another year for the courage to quilt it. All in all the worst thing about making the quilt was cutting out around all the paper piecing patterns. Ant the best thing is that now I have a fall quilt to hang in the dining room.[Image]
