Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Fall 2010

Welcome to the fourth Blogger’s Quilt Festival!  I am so glad that you are here!  I sincerely hope that you plan to enter a quilt and share in the festivities.  Everyone is welcome, and encouraged to participate, no matter your skill level or number of quilts completed!  There’s no judging in our festival, instead lots of new friends to be made and inspiration to be found!

I must begin by thanking our sponsors!  Thank you all!!  They have been generous and great to work with in the weeks leading up to today.  Please take time to visit each of the shops and find a little something special for yourself.

While you hop through the list, let me know if you see a quilter you would like to have featured on my Friday, Festival Feature.  I’m always in need of more Featured Quilters!

Ready to share your quilt?

Here’s what you need to do to participate:  (Please read carefully)

  1. Write a new post (old posts will be deleted).  Share one quilt, and it’s story.  Why you made it, why it is special to you, what you learned about quilting/yourself while making it.  The quilt doesn’t have to be brand new, never seen before on your blog – show what you like!  Also, please respect my efforts and the efforts of the event sponsors, and do not offer giveaways in your Quilt Festival post.
  2. In your post, link back to the festival.  You can do this with a button, just copy and paste the code into your post, if  all else fails.
  3. Share a permalink to your post, in the linky.  Right click on your post title to copy link address, then paste it in the linky.
  4. Leave me a comment to be entered in the giveaways.  Maybe you can tell me approximately how many yards of fabric you have in your stash.  It’s fun to learn something (be entertained) as I read all the comments.
  5. Visit all the other quilters sharing their quilts and be inspired!
  6. If you are on flickr, consider adding your entry to the Group Pool, it’s great to see all the quilts in the gallery!

About our sponsors —

After the Festival is over I will announce and contact winners!

**Please do not link up if you are not posting a specific quilt, also linking to etsy/ebay shops is not allowed.  I reserve the right to delete links that are not within the guidelines above.

Enjoy the show!!

    Wahoo! I’ve been so excited for this!! I have no idea how many yards in my stash…far too many. I must admit though I have a lot of different fabrics in smaller amount, 1 yard or less. I only have a few things that are more than a yard.

    Thanks so much for this great festival!

    Woot! I’m so excited to share this quilt with everyone! What I LOVE about your festival Amy is the focus on the story behind the quilt! I had a great time thinking about what quilt to share, and I realized how important this quilt was to my artistic development! ANd I can’t wait to see all the others!

    So excited about BQF!! How many yards of fabric do I have in my stash? I’m not sure that’s a quantifiable number! Maybe around 60 yards? I think a more telling question would be how many fat quarters I have: too many! Thanks for hosting BQF, Amy! You’re the best!

    Hi Amy,
    Thanks for hosting what I am sure will be another wonderful Blogger’s Quilt Festival. I am looking forward to checking out many of the lovely quilts.
    My stash – I am not really a stasher – I tend to buy for specific projects.

    Thanks for organizing and hosting :) I’m sure it’s a lot of work.

    Yardage in my stash … oh my … I bet if I added it all up, at least 100 yards, probably more. I have a problem. And I work at a fabric store so that doesn’t help! Cutting fabric for people all day only makes me want more. haha.

    Thanks for organising this, Amy – and thanks to the sponsors too – what a generous bunch you’ve found!

    How many yards of fabric do I have? More than I should, according to my DH, not enough pink according to DD2, and enough to pull my cupboards from the wall :-(. Stash now relugrated to ground based storage in drawers and plastic crates now……

    Amy, Thanks so much for making the Blogger’s Quilt Festival possible again this season. I enjoy it so much! I know some people keep track of the yardage in their stash. I’m not sure I would want to know! I have mostly fat quarters, but let’s just say that I have enough fabric to quilt well into retirement and that won’t be for many years! Besides, I am always adding to my stash!

  34. Barbara Harms October 29, 2010 at 1:20 am - Reply

    I’m already browsing the beautiful quilts. How exciting to hear the stories that go with the quilts. Thannks for doing thus Amy!

    Sorry, can’t tell you how many yards I have, I mostly have FQ’s ;-)
    No, I haven’t the slightest clue, but I guess it could be 50-100 yards. At least I know I could make more than 1 quilt out of it.

    Hi Amy! I have added my link and tried to calculate how many yards of fabric that’s in my stash. I gave up around a mile and a half. I would say I have a lot despite my efforts to use only from stash and not keep adding to it.
    Thanks for setting up the Blogger’s Quilt Festival again!

    Hi, Amy! Thanks for hosting this fun Quilt Festival! And congrats on the new book! Now, don’t let my husband read this, but I have a stash of fabric in a bookcase full of shoebox size bins, a stash of assorted batting on rolls that I store in the tub, a stash of upholstery fabrics in nine or ten large bins and garbage bags on shelves in the garage, a stash of 19 unquilted quilt tops of my own in a bin under my longarm machine, plus a stash of clients’ quilts on hangers in my closet that will take me through Christmas and beyone, a stash of buttons in jars on my cutting table, a stash of 80 cones of thread on a shelf, and a stash of 59 UFOs on shelves and in the window seat. I also have a stash of quilted table runners in a bin in the kitchen and a stash of quilts that fill the linen closet to the brim… yup, I am a quilter.

    These Bloggers’ Quilt Festivals are such a wonderful idea — it is so great to see all the beautiful quilts and meet bloggers that one perhaps would not have come across were it not for the Festival!
    Thanks for all the work you put into this. It is really appreciated!
    How much yardage in my stash? I haven’t a clue as I’m mostly a scrap quilter and tend to buy FQs and half yards.

  46. Nadine October 29, 2010 at 2:28 am - Reply

    Is it that time of year already? Thanks for hosting this Blogger’s Quilt festival again. I can’t wait to look at all the lovely blogs and be inspired.

    How much yardage I have is impossible to tell and would take me ages and probably break my brain trying to do the maths. I mainly have FQs and half yards, but loads of those, whole collections. Some Pat Bravo lines, Patty Young, Heather Ross FFA2, Laura Gunn, Laurie Wisbrun, Jessica Levitt, those are some of my faves, and of course Amy Butler and Kaffe Fassett. I honestly think I have enough fabric to last the next 20 years (if I keep working by hand that is and keep making reversible quilts), but can’t even bear the though that I shouldn’t buy any more fabric. :)

    Thanks again Amy for hosting this – its greatly appreciated!!! I literally have thousands and thousands of yds in my stash. Last summer I did a huge stash sell-off – sold off about 1/5th of my collection which was over 1000 yds – I sold it for only 2 bucks a yd and earned enough to go to Quilt conference next year for a week! My quilt friends are happy for a bargain – I’m happy to go to Quilting by the Lake and my stash is so much easier to navigate now!

    As for how many yards of fabric… now that is a nasty question. Do I need to answer by fabric type. Quilting cottons – I have less than 100m! But that doesn’t really highlight my stash that includes fleece, denim, home dec, knits, outerwear, and much more! I probably have more than 1000m, but it is decreasing! YEAH!!!!

    I love to see everyone’s quilts, is anyone as obsessed as a quilter, lol! I don’t know how much fabric I have in my stash, I’m not sure I want to know — and I make a conscious effort not to add to it. And STILL I could make at least a dozen quilts and not buy fabric but backing materials. Busy making a monster queen sized quilt with a whole lotta flying geese this week. Have 178 geese units to make for one of my borders, diving into that this weekend. There is a central blocks unit (done), pieced border (done and sewn on), 2 narrow plain borders (cut, sewing those on today), a pieced border (the 178 flying geese, cut, to be pieced) and a final border (cut).

    Now, how many yards of fabric does my stash comprise? Uh… Well, it’s mostly FQ and F8th packs, jelly rolls and charm packs although there is some meterage. A quick head count suggests around 50. (And I think my stash is small!)

You do such a spectacular job of organizing this – last year was so inspiring :) hmmm… yards of fabric, now that is a scary question [luckily I don’t think my husband will be reading this] – probably at least a couple hundred yards. Yikes!

    I do not know, nor do I care to know how many yards are in my stash. (Too many & not enough at the same time.)

    This is my first BQF…thanks for setting it up. Stash??? More yards than I will use in 2 lifetimes, and more expected. As a guess, easily 300!

    well, I didn’t get my bird quilt finished – maybe for spring. But I did share my LOVE quilt. It’s my most recent finish and something I’m really proud of doing all by myself. :) Thanks for hosting such a wonderful event! I’m proud to know you and consider you a friend! xo

    Hi Amy, Thanks for all your work! I enjoyed making my quilt so much because it was going to a blogging friend I’d never met before last week. I’m so glad the quilt festival was scheduled after I finished it! By the way, I have no clue on yards in stash…probably under 25.

    As for my stash, I’ve been on a fabric diet this year. Between a 10 inch flood and a serious effort to use up what I have previously purchased, I’ve gone from 16 large storage containers of fabric down to about seven. My husband is thrilled, but I’m wondering what I can do to replenish it again! :)

    First time I have seen or been in the festival- what a generous thing to host and a great way to find out more about different bloggers. I thought my stash was small but when I think about yardage I start to worry- I can’t fess up, but I have plans for it all!

  110. Shevvy October 29, 2010 at 6:43 am - Reply

    I haven’t a clue how many yards I have. Most of my stash is in fat quarters but I’ve been buying some yardage when I spot a bargain. Of course I then end up stuffing it in different places all over the house and forget what I’ve got! I’m planning a play with stash weekend so who knows what delights I’ll find!

    Just linked my post! Thanks so much for hosting this again. I have to admit, I am scared to try to figure out how many yards are in my stash. I’ve been stash-building for 17 years. Do fabrics in kits count? Oh my, I don’t think I want to know. I don’t want to know how much fabric I added to my stash just this year – LOL!

    Thanks for hosting! I can’t wait to look through all the quilts. My stash probably is only about 5 yards. I’m the type that only buys fabric if I have a specific project in mind – my budget can’t survive any other way. If I let myself, I’m sure there would be much more there, there are so many beautiful fabrics out there. Here’s hoping there are many new projects in the future. :)

I’ve got a bunch of fat quarter sets, panels, jelly rolls, half yards, and big yardage for quilt backs in my stash, along with almost a full bolt of white. I never really keep track of how many yards I have, so its hard for me to estimate. I’m sure its up there!

    My stash is slowly dwindling. I’ve been actively making it go away by making quilts for each of my niece & nephews (4 down, 7 to go). I’ve also gotten great joy in shipping off pieces that I love, but have grown tired of through blog give aways. What I really need to work on, is the 3 bins of fabric I bought to sew clothes. What was I thinking? I’m a terrible tailor.

    Not sure how much fabric I have, but I have 3 of the same sewing machine, Elna Supermatic*s from 1964, making them more than twice my age (I’m 22). I’ve looked into modern machines, but I cant find one with more features and a longer arm until I get into the $1000+ range, and I’d rather spend that on more fabric.

I really have no idea how many yards are in my stash, but if I had to guess it’s probably 100-150 which is a very scary thought to me. I really need to stop buying fabric and start sewing from my stash exclusively. There are just too many cute designs out there. I can’t stop myself!

    I am not sure I have done this all correctly but have a blog entry posted for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival now. You asked the question “How many yard in your stash?” That is a hard one to answer but I can tell you I have lots and most of it is fat quarters. I do a lot of miniatures so fat quarters go a long way.

I really do try my best to buy what I need and use it up, my stash is mostly scraps. I guess if I had to put a number on it, I’d say *maybe* 30 yards of fabric total. but most of that is scraps.

    Oh boy, I wouldn’t even be able to attempt guessing how many yards of fabric I have…..

    If we were to count 4″ I-Spy squares (my current obsession!), I would guess it’s in the thousands. Probably the 3,000’s. Yikes!

    Thanks for hosting the festival! It’s always so fun to see what other quilters are creating!

    Thank you for hosting this! I am so excited to have the chance to particpate. I have not nearly enough yardage in my stash. Most of it has a purpose so I don’t count it. So that leave maybe 15 yards of stuff and some of that is sweats and knits and pul for diapers. Maybe 5 of it is for quilting. ;)

    Thanks Amy for hosting another Blogger’s Quilt Festival. I’m going to have to enjoy most of it after making a 1200 mile move–tomorrow the computer’s are going to be packed up. It will give me something to look forward to.

    As for the amount of fabric I have, I don’t know. However, I can tell you that fabric makes good packing material for things like dishes and other breakable items.

    I must have a bazillion yards in stash. Two dressers full, two huge tubs full, 6 more drawers in various locations, and a bookcase full. Hi, my name’s Debbie and I’m a fabric addict. I have made two queen size scrappy quilts – 50 fabrics each – and I didn’t use the same fabric twice on either quilt. For instance.
    Happy quilting! Beautiful quilts!

    How many yards of fabric ~ I would guess around 20 of cottons, but I’m not sure if any of that is a full yard, and probably 20 more yards of knits, fleece, and any poly-mixes. I also have a lot of scraps, some cut up into charms and smaller squares, and a couple boxes of a “mess” of scraps.

    Thanks for the chance at these great prizes!

    Thank you so much for the Quilt Festival. I have never done anything like this before. I am so new to quilting and blogging and am really loving it. I hope to have many more to choose from next year. I learned so much, it is too hard to choose one specific thing I learned while making this quilt, but I think now knowing how to finish it after making the top has had the most impact on me. http://lauralovesquilting.blogspot.com/

    Hi Amy, thanks for hosting the Bloggers’ Quilt Festival. I have lots of fabric, but not all of its very pretty! Most of it was donated to me by “older” ladies who no longer want to or can sew. When making a quilt I can pull some fabric from my stash, but not usually without supplementing it at the fabric store. I do try to use as much of the stash as I can. Who knows, some day I may use it all. I’m sure I could sew for the rest of my days and not run out!

    Thank you Amy for having this wonderful quilt show again. And having the thumbnails of the quilts is a great idea.

    How many yards in my stash, oh dear, I would hate to have that get out!! It is way more than I like and I am sure that in the rest of my life I will not be able to get rid of it. One probably is that it just keeps reproducing, honestly. I shut the door and the next time I go in there it has increased. Just how does that happen!!??

    Everyone have a good time.

    Hi Amy, thanks for hosting the Bloggers’ quilt festival. I enjoy it alot.

    I have lots of stash fabric, but its not all too pretty. Most of it was given to me by “older” ladies who don’t or can’t sew any more. I try to use it as much as I can, but end up supplementing it from the fabric store. I think if I made myself not buy fabric I could sew for the rest of my life just using what I have. :o)

    Yards of fabric?! Yikes! That’s like looking in the mirror too closely. I bet that there are easily 100 yards of fabric…but that could be an underestimate. More fabric comes in than goes out unfortunately. I wish I could work with all it the way that I want to!

    Thank you, Amy for having this Blogger Quilt Festival. It is my first time to enter in this festival and I have been very excited about it!

    As far as my stash goes, I have tons and tons…..literally! I have been sewing all my life and I’m sure I have fabric in my stash from the 70’s! Everytime I pull out a piece from the “old days”, it still reminds me of a memory. Isn’t that what quilts and quilting is all about….preserving memories?

  206. Amber October 29, 2010 at 10:25 am - Reply

    My sewing/craft room is a disaster! I don’t have neat little piles of color coordinated fabrics, or fancy dowels holding my ribbons. I have piles. Monstrous piles of scraps, floral antique sheets, cheap ugly fat quarter samples, papers and misc stuff. On the bright side, I find nice surprises once in awhile that I’d forgotten about ;)

    Let’s be honest- I have NO idea how many yards of fabric I have in my stash and I don’t think I want to know because then I’d feel accountable and guilty every time I brought home more. Nope- in this case, ignorance is bliss. :)

    I don’t have a ton of scraps because I have only ever sewn together 3/4 of one quilt top and I have had to go get more fabric. :) I started it 5 years ago and am getting very motivated to finish it. (it was a very ambitious one to start with.)I love the look of quilts and now that my babies are a little older I feel that I can try and learn again. Would love to win something to help with that!

This is my first time participating in your Blogger’s Quilt Festival and I’m really excited to be a part of it! :-) I shared a very special quilt that I made for a little guy named Max who was born almost 3 months premature.

    I didn’t read the instructions before I commented earlier. I don’t have yards of fabric in my stash. I just have bags of scraps! I enjoy scrap quilts and paper piecing small quilts. I have one storage tub of gallon zipper bags of scraps divided by color. When I make larger quilts I buy just the fabric needed for that project.
    I’ve had a chance to look at some of the blogs in the festival. This is great fun!

    I added my blog post and quilt to the Festival lineup. Thank you for all the work you do to put the Festival together. It is fun to see the other quilts and read about them.

    My stash?? I have six plastic bins full of fabric, plus a bookcase full of fabric. No idea of how many yards. BUT, that doesn’t keep me out of the quilt stores buying more!

    thanks Amy! i posted about my latest project, finished about an hour ago..
    as for my stash, I’d say I’ve probably got close to 500 yards, but who’s counting?

    This is a really cool idea to have an online quilt festival. I love looking at all the quilts. You said something about the yards of fabrics in our stash….I’m sure I don’t have as much as some, but KNOW I have more than others. But even if you have a LOT, you can always use more! I remember one speaker at our Guild said that it was our obligation to buy fabric as quilters. I love that, and so I try to follow it religiously every chance I get!

    I’ve written my post and put it up! I originally had a giveaway offering in my post but took it out as soon as I noticed your stipulation not to. Let’s see….I think I have probably about 200-300 yards of fabric in my stash! I’m not really sure, and precuts are very hard to count! I probably have about 150 yards in FQs alone!

    This is my first time joining, but I’ve had so much fun looking at everyone’s fantastic quilts! I made my quilt, for a special little girl who was born with Downs Syndrome. There are so many talented quilters, that lead to much inspiration, but so little time.I’ve already started dreaming of what to make next – maybe something for me to curl up with this winter.

    Thank you for organizing this Quilt festival again!

    This is so much fun. Thanks for doing this Amy. I love the creative inspiration that comes from sharing. Don’t tell my husband but I have thousands of dollars worth of fabric on hand I think. He has no idea. I have about 30 “quilts” sitting ready to make. I just can’t produce as fast as my stash acquisition. It’s so much fun, and so addictive!

    Oh thank you so much, Amy for doing this.. I am looking forward to visiting the blogs and get inspired to make more projects. I have posted my favourite quilt project and must admit I would not be able to give you a true figure as to how much fabric I have in my stash. I like to work with pre-cuts so I have a lot of layer cakes, jelly rolls and charm packs. Along with that I have the yardage to match which here in Canada is measured by the meter rather than the yard. Ok .. I’m ready for some serious sight seeing!
    Merci!

    I have no idea how many yards of fabric my stash has, and honestly it’s kinda a scary thought to add it up! I do have about 12 WIPs, which is way too many! It’s hard to keep up with the all but they are fun to pick up sometimes and try and figure out what the heck I was thinking! ;)

    Just found your blog and have entered the first quilt I made (just this year). I honestly couldn’t say how much fabric I have. I have a few yards of heavy duty cotton and the rest is scrap pieces and several items of old clothing which I intend to repurpose. I have a lap quilt in progress now which is being repurposed from a rather brightly coloured skirt of my daughters.

    Wow Amy! Another successful Bloggers Quilt Festival! Hmm, not so sure I can calculate the yardage in my stash, can we just accept ‘excessive’ as a quantity. Outgrown it’s storage (room) and overflowing would be a good description at least! LOL I’m sure I’m not alone!

  292. Shannon October 29, 2010 at 4:23 pm - Reply

    This is my first time in the festival and I’m so excited! Making a rough estimate, I would have to say there are about 90 yards of fabric in my stash. But I’ve only been at it a couple of years;)

Well, I have been quilting on and off since I was 14. Don’t ask. I think I have about 200 yards of fabric, that’s not alot right???? And I believe I have made over 100 quilts so far. I mostly give them to friends.

    I am very excited to be part of your Blogger Quilt Festival. This is my second time to participate. Regarding the yardage in my stash — I can only say it is a lot — no clue — and no way to figure out how to start counting. I do keep track of how much I buy and how much I use every year, with a goal of using at least 100 yards more than I buy every year.

    As to how much fabric is in my stash…hmm…I once estimated that, if I could buy no fabric at all, I had about two years at present rate of use. I don’t know how many yards that translates to, but I would call it a safe margin against disaster. :)

The most challenging thing for me about blogging is figuring out how to use the computer…. I haven’t got the faintest idea how many yards of fabric are in my stash. I feel challenged by your question to spend a bit of time trying to figure that out. I have fabric all over the place. Thanks for hosting this festival.

    Your online quilt show just gets bigger and bigger every time you put it on! Thanks again for organizing the show. I washed all of the fabric in my stash this summer and estimate that I have about 100+ yards of fabric in my quilting stash.

    Oh my goodness, what deep dark secrets can I reveal – well, I know that I have more fabric in my stash than I will ever use in my life time. Some of it I bought years ago and my liking for it is so strong that I just can’t cut into it, instead it hides away in a cupboard protected by other pieces. There is no way I could even guess at how much fabric I have in total and to even try to count it would be worse than standing up and say ” Hi my name is Miche’le and I am a fabricoholic”.
    thank you for the oppportunity of entering my little quilt in your festival.

    It’s so hard to say how many hundreds I may have of fabric in my stash. It’s hard to go to the store and just look. It doesn’t happen. I’m really liking right now the panels of vintage looking children. I’m not sure how to use them though.

    this is wonderful, great prizes, and awesome to see so many inspiring quilts! thanks. as for yards- i wish it was more, but probably only about 10 : ( at the most- hoping to increase my sad stash with these great giveaways!!

    Hi Amy!! Thanks for hosting another awesome festival! I love the linky with the photos of the quilts!!

    As far as how many yards of stash….I really don’t have much of a stash. When I buy fabrics, it’s usually with a quilt in mind. I don’t buy too much “just because”. I do have some precuts though, and those are nearly 3 yards each…so I’d have to guess…maybe…20 yards?! Rough guess….LOL!

    Thanks again!

    I’m so glad I found this festival! It’s my first year entering. So far, I am inspired and awed by all the quilts! <3

    And the fabric stash…I feel so bad! I have fabric for all my quilts for Christmas I've yet to make (uh oh)…so I have…I'd guess about 40 yards in total :O

    Now I must hide in my sewing area and sew away. Thinking about all that fabric makes me want to sew sew sew!

    Amy, wonderful job again as usual :) The prizes sound terrific and all the thumbnails of quilts very enticing. Of course I have entered again.

    Umm, stash yardage is probably about 60-70 yards, I’d say? It’s hard to count up all those fat quarters, LOL!

I have no idea how many yards in my stash – I haven’t been stashing very long and mostly have 1/2 yards or fat quarters of ones i like. But in saying that it is growing rapidly.

    I have WAY too many yards to count. I can tell you that I have a full kitchen sized trash bag (like 13 gallons or something) of scraps from just the last month. I’ve been sewing a lot of things for Fabri-Quilt’s Quilt Market booths, so I have a ton of fabric left over from that stuff.

    That doesn’t even count all the fabric that I’ve purchased. I have many boxes (that I haven’t unpacked from our recent move) to re-wash, iron, and put on my new mini-bolts. Ah! So much to do!

  383. Jessica October 30, 2010 at 6:36 am - Reply

    I’ve made a lot of things for Fabri-Quilt’s Quilt Market booths over the last month or so, so I’ve been sewing a ton lately. Just from this sewing, I’ve collected about 13 gallons of scraps. I have a kitchen sized trash bag filled with scraps and leftovers from all these projects.

    I also have 4 really big boxes crammed with fabric to unpack from our recent move. My plan is to re-wash them, iron them, fold them, and wrap them around my mini fabric bolts. I’m making myself a mini quilt shop in my basement. I’m so excited!

As for how many yards I have in my stash well that would cause me to go into lala land if I even knew that number. However, I do know the number of yards that I have of my favorite fabric line ‘Make Life’ and that is around 70 yards which is made up of yardage and precuts. I know, I know nuts right. We I do have projects planned for it!

    Yards in my stash? Have absolutely no idea, it’s not an overwhelming amount but it sure is enough for me shop from when sewing. I’ll guess that my stash is around 200 yards – it sounds like a lot, but looking at some my yardage pieces which are about 3 yards it sure adds up quickly.

My mom was visiting and we went into the closet and picked out fabric and made a quilt. No need to go to a fabric store. I should invite people to a come raid my closet and they could make a quilt.

    That’s a hard question – I have no idea how many yards of fabric I actually have. It keeps growing these days! I would estimate about 50? I tend to buy in 1/2 yard increments (unless I find a good sale), so judging by how many fabrics I have, I think that may be close. But, even with all that fabric, I always seem to need to run out and buy some additional fabrics for different projects. How can that be???

    Thanks for organizing and hosting the festival!!!

    HI Amy,
    You have created another lovely festival. I particularly like the thumbnail photos of the quilts – It is a beautiful sea of color. I hope to get to visit the many quilts but it is going to take me awhile to get through them.
    I have so much fabric I am too scared to count yardage- I have around 25 boxes full of fabrics- it is sorted and organized enough that I can find what I am looking for usually. It would take more than one very long life time for me to use it…. I do love fabric.
    Thanks for hosting the festival-

    When you click on my thumbnail photo as well as a few others it will not direct viewer to my blogspot. It has driven me crazy trying to figure it out but I think what has happened is the address prints http:// twice and that makes computer read it wrong and is unable to redirect to blogsite. When you click on my thumbnail it shows http://http:// grannysblooms9.blogspot.com/ and it will come up as error. I noticed maybe a dozen or so that this is happening with.

    Hi Amy
    Thank you so much for hosting the quilt festival again. I really enjoy looking at everyone’s quilts and reading the stories behind them.

    I have a huge stash but have disguised it by cutting 3/4 of a ton of it into strips of varying sizes. Since I no longer have THAT fabric in my stash, I can now say it is a wee bit smaller. And it doesn’t help that I have a quilt shop out my back door and am a serious fabriholic! And, I own the shop, lol!

    Thanks again Amy, this is so much fun!

    It took me a few days, but I got my link added! Wow, there are endless hours of surfing here, I am so excited. I just have to say, that I am so excited about The Sewing Summit, and the fact that after living 10 years away from home, I will be moving back just in time to attend :) I can’t wait to meet you and so many other amazing quilters!!

    I started doing some rough math on how many yards of fabric I might have…and then I had to stop. My husband walked in. I’m sure you all would understand!

    Thanks for hosting this Amy. Every year I find new inspiration and even some awesome new blog friends!

    Amy, you’ve stimulated so much sharing in the quiltmaking community with your inspired online Quilt Festival. Even though I’ve been quilting for more years than I can even believe, I still consider myself a relative novice. I’m so happy to be able to explore others’ creativity from the comfort of my home computer. Oh, and I probably have about 1,000 yards of fabric in my stash; I sure wish I could use it up more quickly.

    I sure hope I win some fabric: my stuff is sort of old and tired!
    Hugs,
    Tina in San Diego

    Amy…thanks for hosting the Bloggers Quilt Festival… I have visited before but this is my first time to show a quilt. It’s a feast for the eyes, a virtual rainbow of quilts! I just need a few days to check them all out…well, we all got an extra hour this weekend, so you all know what I am going to be doing with the extra time!

    I am not sure if my comment b4 made it as my putey did something really strange, but I know I didnt answer your question about how many yards of fabric I have in my stash. If you take into account all my FQ’s and F8’s I am thinking at about 100 yards (I am an Aussie so it really would be about 100 metres), not too mention all the jelly rolls, layer cakes and charm packs i have waiting to be used.

    Thank you so much for hosting this virtual quilt show! Thanks also to your sponsors. I’d be thrilled to win anything, even though I already have approximately – gulp! – 1700 yards of fabric in my stash. I try not to think about it. Actually, I’m trying fairly hard not to buy anything I don’t need for a specific project. It’s a challenge because there are so many wonderful fabrics coming out every month.

    Amy, Thanks for hosting this festival and giving us the opportunity to share the quilt we made for our Nana. Brenna (my daughter) and I spent some quality time snuggled on the couch tonight looking at quilts. So much fun!! I can hardly believe how many entries there are already!

    As for my fabric stash – I have no idea. There is one large vacuum cleaner box packed full of mostly fabric awaiting our move. Plus I have two of those decorative, paper covered boxes full still here in the house. I try to practice restraint, but every once in a while I buy more. :) fabric and books. My weaknesses. :)

    I thought you might like to know that I “found” your blog through your interview with Pat Sloan. I also wanted to thank you, since the Bloggers’ Quilt Festival helped me to think about what I have learned through earlier quilts. (By the way, I am now a grandmother – of twins!)

    I really couldn’t guess how much yardage is in my stash. Some of my fabric is from before quilting but just can’t get myself to get rid of it yet. I did get rid of just about everything that wasn’t cotton. Now I need to get rid of fabric that is outdated…maybe it could be considered vintage?

    I really couldn’t guess the yardage in my stash. Some of my fabric is from prequilting days that I just can’t seem to get rid of. I did however get rid of just about everything that wasn’t cotton. Now I need to destash outdated fabrics…maybe they can be considered vintage?

    About my yardage…hmm, I would guess my quilting cottons to be well under 20 meters (or yards if you will…)I have a big stash of stuff that I don’t use anymore, mainly fleeces, which I will be giving away to a friend. I can’t wait to have some more space in my fabric cabinet!!

    My stash has more yardage than I have time to count. That’s not to say I have a lot – just that I don’t have much time :P.

    To add a little levity as you’re diligently reading all these comments:

    You Know you are a Quilter If……..

    There’s more Fabric in the House than Food
    “Fat Quarters” are not the heaviest part of your body
    Your ironing board is always set up but you never iron clothes
    You think of your job as an interruption of your quilting time
    You pet Fabric
    People are always picking threads off you
    You can measure a scant 1/4″ by eye
    “Featherweight” Doesn’t mean Boxer
    Your “UFO’s” are not from outer space

    Thank you for hosting the Blogger’s Quilt Festival!

    The quilt I entered is the 1st quilt I ever made. I so enjoy quilting and have at least 15+ current UFO’s. My stash is slowly but surely growing I have no idea how many yards may be in it but I’m sure my husband would tell you it’s too much! lol

    While going out fabric shopping with my sister today to make dresses for her wedding he repeatedly told me, “We have NO $$ for fabric!” lol You’d think he thought I was addicted or something! “Hi, my name is Jennifer and I’m addicted to fabric” ;)

    Just wanted to leave a different kind of comment for you to read. Have a wonderful day! =)

    Thanks for organising such a wonderful festival. As for our stash, we won 100 fat quarters of Jinny Beyers beautiful fabrics as first prize for one of our group quilts. We’ve used some in our latest quilt but it hardly looks as though we’ve put a dent in the box.

    Hi Amy,
    I am participating in this Festival, so glad that you are organising it again. Are you really sure that you want to know how many yards of fabric I have??? I have at least 150 yards not yed dyed fabric, guess the same amount of batiks and how many yards of dyed fabric?? Couple of hundred?? I have no clue, but I do know that it is a lot LOL

  476. Jill October 31, 2010 at 1:47 am - Reply

    I literally stumbled into the quilting blogosphere this spring the week of the BQF. I’m so glad to be participating this go round! I don’t think I’m guessing too wildly when I say that I have about 800yds of fabric. It’s a bit insane actually. A friend of my mother’s, who I have never met, literally out of the blue gave me about 600 yards of fabric (HER ENTIRE STASH FROM QUILTING) because she was giving up quilting for knitting and wanted me to put it to good use in my charity quilting. I will be sewing forever!

    A Blogger’s Quilt Festival, what a great idea. This caused me to learn how to update my brand-new blog with a linky and grabbing a button! So I travel along with this whole new world of blogging, spending more and more time enjoying them, but still getting some quilts made because of the sheer inspiration I find. But I’m not sure I want to face the question of how much fabric I have. Too scary, even for Halloween. Thanks for the show.

    I am late entering in my comment because of the INTERNATIONAL QUILT MARKET in Houston, which has been SO MUCH FUN!!! Will post about it soon, with pictures of creators and designers of my favorite fabrics. I started this quilting blog a year ago, after seeing your quilt festival then. I was so intrigued, and worked very hard for 6 months, learning all there is to know about blogger to be ready to enter a post last spring. Thank you Amy, and all your sponsors for bringing us together. What a wonderful place to share and learn from each other.

    You want to know how much fabric I have in my stash??? Quite frankly, I don’t think I want to know, maybe close to 500 yards, and I’ve only been quilting 3 or 4 years! and gave away 2 big boxes last week. Definitely addicted!

    OK, so I didn’t learn so well. I have a new Blog, where I learned to do the linky and the button grab because of this Blogger’s Quilt Festival. But when I tried doing this comment, it disappeared into … somewhere. But boy, have I learned to browse blogs well!!! I do get so much inspiration that I’m still able to get some quilting done. In fact, maybe more since I’m motivated! How much fabric do I have? Too scary to think about, even for Halloween!

    Um, I don’t know that I want to admit how many yds of fabric i Have in my stash… I would guesstimate that it’s close to 75 yds. I only know that because of how I store my fabric. It’s on boards and I know I have gone through 2 pkgs of 100 but that not all of that is yardage.
