Bloggers Quilt Festival
Today is the final day that the Quilt Festival is accepting new links! If you’ve been thinking about it, but haven’t done it yet – hurry up!! Don’t miss out on this opportunity to expand your community :)
A few of you have asked, if the links will still be accessible after this week is over – Of course!! The links will be permanent on my blog, feel free to take your time going through them – I know I will.
My plan is to close the linky tonight as I go to bed, and tomorrow work on awarding prizes – by random number generator. Hopefully I have a way to get in touch with everyone that has entered. (Just in case you don’t know I’m on mountain time in the US)
Be sure to visit the sponsors … Read More »
And there is still time to enter if you have not yet had the chance to do so! The Festival will close Friday night midnight.
I would like to reiterate that it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been quilting, or how many quilts you have made. This event is about building community, not how perfect your seams are! We want to see what you’ve been up to. And if you are new to blogging – don’t worry about it! We’ve all been new to blogging at one point or another :) Ask for help – it doesn’t hurt!
I’ve just started down the list – there’s some amazing quilts, and even more amazing stories attached to them. Thanks again to everyone who is sharing their stories with their quilts – it’s a huge blessing to … Read More »
I think I may have been holding out on my regular readers! I’ve had this quilt tucked away in a closet for 3 years I think. It’s not something I want to use, it’s an antique, and it is mine.My Great-Grandmother made this quilt. I met her once or twice. I don’t have memories of her – but I have this quilt.Each set of blocks is made with the same tie as the center, some of them have been pieced a bit to make it large enough to go across the center.Where they meet in the center is a black velvet appliqued circle. There’s no batting, that I can tell of, it seems to just have the backing, which is a burgundy velvet. It is wrapped from the back to the front and expertly … Read More »
Big smiles and waves to all of you!! You guys are blowing me away! We have over 400 entries in our festival already – amazing!! Thank you so much for your kind words in the comments – they have kept me going :) And I have yet to even started looking through your links – I will eventually though!
Did I tell you, I don’t think I did! My blog, and our festival actually went to Market! Sharon Dismore of Sew Fun Computing had a lecture focused on blogging to self-promote. Lots of designers are doing it and she ran across this little, happy spot. Fun, fun!
I actually took a little time for the family today – and you didn’t even miss me. Just a few things to fix up when I … Read More »

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.
In other … Read More »
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 :)

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.

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 »

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 »
