Wow you guys! This has been so amazing! What a great experience – Thank you!!

I am slowly working through all the links and trying to answer questions as they come in, my inbox has been overflowing. I’m so glad that you are all having a great time seeing inspiring quilts and making new friends :)

I want to encourage some that may not have joined us yet – it does not matter your skill level, or number of quilts completed! If you have just one – post it :) I don’t consider myself a master quilter, I just love being a quilter! The majority of those linking up would probably share my thinking too.

I am up to, Friday noon in links – if I haven’t made it to your blog yet, … Read More »

***The Quilt Festival is now closed and no longer accepting new links***

Welcome to the first online Quilt Festival! I’m so glad you are here! Get a cup of coffee or tea and stay a while. There’s lots to see and many places to visit. I look forward to getting to know all of you a little better this week!

Without your support this event would not be nearly as exciting! The sponsors are all listed on my right sidebar and I have a list of offerings a little later in this post. Be sure to do some shopping while blog hopping :)———————————————-

I’ve posted about this quilt before – but I decided I need to set a good example for all of you and post about it again. :)

Before I started this quilt, I had been sitting with my sketch pad trying to figure out diamonds and the best way to accomplish them for a week or so. Finally I’d had enough and needed to cut into some fabric! I had covertly purchased a Blossom jelly roll on ebay – I remember it being $20 and had to have it. Perfect opportunity to try something new!

This is my favorite quilt mostly for all it represents. I learned so much in making this little gem, it measures 38″ square. I realized after cutting all my strips into diamonds that I could have sewn three or four together … Read More »


Calling All Quilters!

Have you ever dreamed of going to Quilt Market? I know that I have, last year this time I was a new blogger, and hearing about Market on other blogs just about made me green with envy! All those gorgeous quilts, fabrics, sewing machines, quilting gadgets and gizmos — all under one roof!

I know that it is possible to see the quilts from the festival online, but why not support your fellow quilting blogger in our very own online quilt festival!?

Beginning this Friday, April 17th I am going to host a week long Bloggers Quilt Festival! Can you tell I’m excited? This is going to be sooo much fun!

How do you get involved?

Be thinking about, and post on Friday, your favorite completed quilt project, and the story that goes with it. I will have … Read More »
