Bloggers Quilt Festival
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 »
I have heard from a few of the winners, but want to check in with the rest and make sure you received your prize from the Quilt Festival last month! If you would take a moment to comment or email me and let me know I would really appreciate it!
I’m working on a tutorial for tomorrow :)
See you then -Amy
I heard from almost all of the 24 winners and had select just two more – I hope that more and more of you add your email to your profile, that way this isn’t an issue :)
**Congratulations to Cathi and Monica!Cathi is the winner of a $20 Gift Certificate to Pink Chalk Fabrics and Monica a $10 Gift Certificate to Wish Upon a Quilt :) Check out the links in my previous post if you would like to go shopping!
Also I had a couple of ladies email me after I shut down the linky – I thought everyone was done since posting had slowed down and really wanted to get to selecting prizes while the kids were sleeping :)
Check out Lucy, Deb, Cathy, and Cheryl’s favorite quilts!
That’s it – I’m not taking anymore links until October, and I’m … Read More »

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 »
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!
First, I need to thank our generous sponsors – I emailed each of them this week and they have been enthusiastic to get involved. Thank You! 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 :)———————————————-
Here’s how you get involved –

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 »
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 »
