Welcome, welcome! I’m so excited to have you here for the festival! Make sure that you are comfortable, there are so many beautiful quilts to inspire and awe you. When I hosted the Spring Festival I was blown away by the vastness of this online community, and all the talent too! This installment is bound to be just as exciting and fun, with new friends made too.I need to start with a big THANK YOU to the sponsors – check them out on the right, and later in this post too! Each sponsor has generously offered a piece of their shop/business, please take a few moments to click over to each one as they all have something different to offer.

Do you have a quilt to showcase? Excellent! Here’s what you need to do … Read More »

Monday Madness!

Posted on October 5th, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival, twitter. 10 comments

Hi Friends ~I don’t seem to be able to sit for long enough today (probably not a bad thing!). Monday is early out for the kids’ school, thus the day is even MORE choppy than usual. 3 trips to school and back daily. And it has been snowing again – hopefully it will warm up soon (like 50).

Saturday night I went to Girls Night Out at the local quilt shop, and got to meet Natalia. She was sharing her quilts that she tends to make with pre-cuts — cute stuff! And she has quite a few tutorials on her blog.

I haven’t done any sewing in the last few days either – my extra energy has been put into the Blogger’s Quilt Festival! The details are coming together and I’m getting super excited.

Sew-n-Tell

You are assuming from the title, that I have a finished project. Nope not today! I have a few half-finished projects but not to the point where I’m ready to share :)

But I did want to remind you to link up!

And remind you to spread the word –

One week until the Quilt Festival! Have you decided which quilt to showcase? It’s Quilter’s Choice, so find a favorite, special quilt to share. I’m looking forward to it! And the prizes are going to be great – 18 fabulous sponsors helping to make the event a huge success!

Any of you locals to SLC need a reason to visit Midway? Girls Night Out at Seasons of the Home is tomorrow, and I’m planning to be there :)

Have a great weekend –Amy—————————————-

I’ve gotten a few questions, just a few, but thought I would clarify here for everyone. The Quilt Festival begins October 9. With my post on October 9 everyone will have the chance to join in the fun!

May I join in, please? :) Of course! Everyone is welcome to join!
You’ll be posting the directions of what to do again, won’t you? Absolutely! Everything will be clear October 9, but if you would like to see the spring festival for an idea of what to expect – go visit the spring post.

Blogger’s Quilt Festival – 13 days and counting

Posted on September 26th, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival. 41 comments

Hi Friends! With just under two weeks left until Blogger’s Quilt Festival I’m excited to get things started!

The Blogger’s Quilt Festival is for quilters of any genre, or skill level – no matter your style we want to see your work!! The Blogger’s Quilt Festival is timed around Quilt Market especially for those of us not able to make that pilgrimage to Houston, but if you go to market you are still welcome too :)

So pick a quilt to showcase, just one, and be thinking about the story that goes with it. What did you learn, what did that project help you through, or to overcome. Did you make it for someone special, or to raffle off at an important event?

And there are lots of prizes to win too! I have a great group of … Read More »

A Notion or Two – May

Posted on May 26th, by Amy in a Notion or Two, Bloggers Quilt Festival. 8 comments

May is almost over! Can you believe it?

Jenny asked for a modern block for her boy. I had been thinking how I could play with an hourglass block and then found a picture of wall molding that caught my eye. And so I interpreted it for fabric and the fabrics made it playful!

On a completely different note — Mr. Linky has been having technical difficulties. A few of you have commented that the links are gone, but by the time I get there they are back. . . I realized I could export the list and take it off of their server! DUH :) So now they are permanent fixtures/links on my quilt festival post! Click away my friends :)

I’m participating in Sew Mama Sew’s giveaway day tomorrow . . … Read More »

Again??

Posted on April 20th, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival. 56 comments

At some point today we hit 400! That’s over 400 quilting bloggers all linked up right here – isn’t that so cool? I know you all agree, you keep telling me how wonderful I am in your comments! Thank you :)

I’ve seen the same question again and again -Will we be doing this again? You have to do this again – can we have one in the summer? And such —

My thoughts are this – once a year doesn’t seem like enough, but once a season may be a little too often, (for me) so how about we keep it coinciding with Spring and Fall Market!

If you saw my first post about this last Monday (yes, I put it together in one week) – then you should understand the connection :) … Read More »
