In Full Swing!

Hopefully you’ve found all the Blogger’s Quilt Festival linky posts and had a chance to start looking through the beautiful entries!

Today the linky to nominate your favorite for a Viewer’s Choice award is open – take note that the entries are being moderated and I will approve later in the week, before the voting begins. If this is a complete mystery for you, email me a link of the quilt/post you would like to nominate.

I’m home from a successful Market, and working to catch up on emails and check in on the linky’s. Just to clarify, each quilter can enter up to two quilts, but each quilt must be in a different category, and only one category per quilt. 

Have you noticed the upgraded linky? You can post to pinterest, twitter and Facebook right from the linky, and once … Read More »
