Blogger’s Quilt Festival — Voting is Open!

Posted on November 1st, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival. 17 comments

I’m beyond thrilled with the amazing entries in our Festival! If you didn’t get to enter this time, I hope that you will in the spring. For right now, you can vote for your favorite in each category, and until 5pm MST you can nominate your overall favorite for Viewer’s Choice. At that time the linky will be visible and voting will begin there as well.

The giveaway for my Baby Lock Melody is open still as well! Make sure you enter a permalink for the post option :)

Just a quick word on voting – careful where you click – I can’t undo your vote and there is just one vote per IP address (device). Below is a screen shot of a category linky, click on the heart in the corner of the quilt you would … Read More »

In Full Swing!

Posted on October 28th, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival. 9 comments

Hopefully you’ve found all the Blogger’s Quilt Festival linky posts and had a chance to start looking through the beautiful entries!

Today the linky to nominate your favorite for a Viewer’s Choice award is open – take note that the entries are being moderated and I will approve later in the week, before the voting begins. If this is a complete mystery for you, email me a link of the quilt/post you would like to nominate.

I’m home from a successful Market, and working to catch up on emails and check in on the linky’s. Just to clarify, each quilter can enter up to two quilts, but each quilt must be in a different category, and only one category per quilt. 

Have you noticed the upgraded linky? You can post to pinterest, twitter and Facebook right from the linky, and once … Read More »
