Blogger’s Quilt Festival :: Spring 2013


Posted on May 17th, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival. 259 comments

Can you believe we’ve been sharing our quilts this way for 5 years? I love coming together to share quilts and be inspired by all of you! I hope you take the time to share a quilt, and link up with everyone – EVERYONE IS WELCOME – no matter how long you’ve been quilting! Tell your friends, and get a post up!

Spring Blogger's Quilt Festival - AmysCreativeSide.comAs the Festival continues to grow, the organization of the Festival continues to evolve. To simplify the nomination and voting processes, and keep everyone from being overwhelmed by the volume of links, there will be a linky for each category, each with it’s own post.  I have conceded that each quilter may enter up to two quilts, each with it’s own post, in separate categories. Scroll down for links to each category.

 

Schedule of Events :

May 17 – 24 – Linky’s Open & Nominate for Viewer’s Choice on this post

May 24 – 30 – Vote for favorites in each of the categories

May 31 – Winners announced

With each category having it’s own linky, the need to nominate a favorite quilt in each category is eliminated.  Once the linky is done collecting your posts, everyone will be able to vote for a favorite in each category.

 

Many thanks to our lovely sponsors! They have generously donated prizes for all of you to win. Be sure to stop by their shops, and find a special treat for yourself, while taking in all the quilts. They love being the suppliers for all your fabric and sewing needs!

Viewer’s Choice winners will win one of three amazing prizes:
