Coming Soon – Blogger’s Quilt Festival
Looking back over the eight other Festivals I’ve hosted, I’m looking forward to the next installment, and hope you are too! Do you have a quilt to share yet? I’m still deciding which quilt I will share. It’s so hard to pick a favorite, but usually it’s the most recent finish!
The Festival will run May 17-31st. As in the past I have a great group of sponsors, and everyone is welcome to participate! (email me, if you would like to sponsor a prize) I’m thinking about making each category it’s own linky, this time around, I’m thinking more quilts will be viewed if we aren’t overwhelmed by the volume of quilts to view, in each post. It also means you have to pick just one category to enter your quilt in. I would love to know your thoughts.
A few details for participation :
1 – Write a post the week of the festival, featuring your finished quilt, and it’s story.
2 – In your post link back to the festival.
3 – Share a link to your post, in the linky on the festival post.
4 – Leave me a comment on the festival post to be entered into giveaways.
5 – Visit all the other quilters sharing their quilts and be inspired!
