Blogger’s Quilt Festival :: Countdown!

Posted on May 14th, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival, My kids. 11 comments

Hi friends! Are you ready for it? Just a few more days, and all the fun begins!

I’m working on my posts, to have multiple linky’s ready, it’s a chore now, but I think it will be easier later once you start linking up. Remember, there is a main post, that will remain at the top of my blog for the duration of the Festival, but to see the quilts, and link up you will need to click the link to visit each category.  Each quilter can enter two quilts, in separate posts, and categories.

 

Ella turned 13 yesterday! We had a fun and full day (not to mention weekend!) with family and friends.

I can’t believe how time flies! It seems like we were just learning the ropes of parenthood the other … Read More »


Highlights

Life is full, and I am blessed! It just makes it hard to keep up with everything ;) So I thought I would share a couple of highlights from the last few days.

This is a peek at a Christmas quilt in progress – a first for me.  I’m excited to see it come together!

I have been adding to the space around the longarm too.  My collection of mini quilts from various swaps add inspiration, and a good dose of color!

The quilt draped on the longarm includes some new fabrics from my friend Emily – more on Technicolor soon!

Are you ready for Blogger’s Quilt Festival?

Many have asked – with multiple linkys will multiple quilts be allowed?

Thinking about it more, … Read More »


Coming Soon – Blogger’s Quilt Festival

Posted on April 8th, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival. 100 comments

Looking back over the eight other Festivals I’ve hosted, I’m looking forward to the next installment, and hope you are too!  Do you have a quilt to share yet?  I’m still deciding which quilt I will share.  It’s so hard to pick a favorite, but usually it’s the most recent finish!

The Festival will run May 17-31st. As in the past I have a great group of sponsors, and everyone is welcome to participate!  (email me, if you would like to sponsor a prize) I’m thinking about making each category it’s own linky, this time around, I’m thinking more quilts will be viewed if we aren’t overwhelmed by the volume of quilts to view, in each post. It also means you have to pick just one category to enter your quilt in.  I would love to know your thoughts.
