 Welcome to Blogger’s Quilt Festival! I hope you enjoy all the different aspects of the Festival and find lots of inspiration for your future projects! This Festival is for everyone – young or old, beginning quilter or advanced, any style or genre, everyone is welcome, and encouraged to participate with us!

The story of each quilt often relates quilters to one another, and is an important aspect of our Festival! I hope you take the time to write about how your entry quilt came to be and why it is important for you to share it. Likewise, I hope you enjoy reading about the quilts others’ have entered! **Each quilter may enter up to two quilts, each with it’s own post, in separate categories.

I’m excited to share that Baby Lock is generously giving away a … Read More »

Blogger’s Quilt Festival :: News & Catching Up!

Hi friends! I love seeing all the quilts you have entered in the Festival! If you haven’t entered yet, there’s still time!  Visit this post and select a category your quilt falls into, and link up.  Also, there have been lots of nominations, but there’s always room for more – select a favorite from all the categories to nominate for Viewer’s Choice.  I will sort through all the nominations over the weekend, and then we vote for our top three favorites!

I had a great Market experience with a full schoolhouse, and four signings giving me a chance to chat with a number of shop owners and fans.  I’m still in recovery and catch up mode around the house, but today I’m planning to ignore the laundry and enjoy my birthday! I think I will pull out my Dancing Stars blocks … Read More »


Blogger’s Quilt Festival :: Spring 2013

Posted on May 17th, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival. 259 comments

Can you believe we’ve been sharing our quilts this way for 5 years? I love coming together to share quilts and be inspired by all of you! I hope you take the time to share a quilt, and link up with everyone – EVERYONE IS WELCOME – no matter how long you’ve been quilting! Tell your friends, and get a post up!

As the Festival continues to grow, the organization of the Festival continues to evolve. To simplify the nomination and voting processes, and keep everyone from being overwhelmed by the volume of links, there will be a linky for each category, each with it’s own post.  I have conceded that each quilter may enter up to two quilts, each with it’s own post, in separate categories. Scroll down for links to each category.

May 17 – 24 – Linky’s Open & Nominate for … Read More »
