Bloggers Quilt Festival


Last Call & Nomination Time

Posted on May 22nd, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival. 52 comments

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.

Bloggers’ Quilt Festival – Spring Details

Posted on March 30th, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival. 34 comments

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.

I think it would be fun to include a little nominating/voting – not to dissuade anyone from participating, but to add to the excitement.  Being nominated in a category, by your peers, is the cherry on top of an already fun festival!

Here’s the proposed scoop:

May 18 – 21 Festival begins!  (Linky is open)
May 22- 25 Nominations are made
May 26 – 30 Vote for your favorites
June 1 – Winners announced

Along with nominations in specific categories, I would love to implement a Viewer’s Choice, and there will still be … Read More »

Today’s featured quilter is Claudia!  Claudia‘s bold color choices make fun quilts – I hope you enjoy getting to know Claudia better —

1.  When did you begin quilting?

About 8 years ago, I became interested in quilting.  My sister, who has always been a fabulous seamstress and quilter, encouraged me to give it a try.  She suggested I try a 9-patch pattern from a magazine.  Little did I know that it was a challenging project for a newbie – the smallest 9-patch pieces finished to about … Read More »

Thank you all for sharing your beautiful quilts, and remember, anytime you need a dose of inspiration this festival will be available!
