BQF News:

Today is the last day to nominate your favorites in each of the categories! I will work over the weekend to sort out the nominations and update you all. You can still vote for your overall favorite, for the Viewer’s Choice Awards!

About a month ago, I received a charm pack of Bella, by Lotta Jansdotter. While trying to think up a clever project for the fabric, I was busy making preparations for BQF, and all the usual happenings in our family. I never put that charm pack away though! I didn’t want to forget about it! Out of sight, out of mind…

Finally, inspiration struck and I pulled a few coordinating solids. Within a few hours, I had a new table runner!

I love the organic feel … Read More »

Hi friends! Today is the last day to enter your quilt in the festival, midnight tonight the linky will close – be sure to get your link added! I’m making the form available today as well. I ask that you list the number only, of the link that you wish to nominate – this will help me sort and count later. Trying to decide which ones to nominate is going to be killer! Have fun!

Tomorrow you can vote for your very favorite quilt of the Festival. One vote per person will be allowed, so be sure it’s the quilt you love!

Today also happens to be my birthday, I’m hoping for a relaxed day with a little sewing time too!

I’ll be back soon ~ Amy


My Festival Post

I am so excited to see everyone turn out again for  Bloggers’ Quilt Festival! It’s been a pleasure to watch all the quilts pour in on the linky. The linky will be open just a couple more days, hopefully everyone that wants to, will have a chance to link up!

My entry is my recent finish – Burst of Spring.

I’ve developed a love of flying geese, and found myself drawing different blocks all with flying geese, this one had to be made! I was asked to develop a pattern for Blend Fabrics, with Spring Promise fabrics, and I knew that it was a match. The soft floral fabrics each take a turn being the center of attention in the star, with the white print background setting them off. 

Have you tried making … Read More »

Hi Friends!  I don’t have an interview lined up for today, but with the next installment of Bloggers Quilt Festival less than two months away, I’m already planning, and thought I would share some of my ideas with you.  In the spirit of making the Festival even better, I am looking to implement a few changes.

Here’s the proposed scoop:

May 18 – 21 Festival begins!  (Linky is open)
May 22- 25 Nominations are made
