Bloggers’ Quilt Festival :: Spring 2011

Welcome to the Festival!  I hope that you have a quilt to share with everyone!  Everyone is welcome to join in the fun, and encouraged to enter a quilt.  No matter your skill level or how many quilts you have completed, there’s no judging in our festival.  So join the fun, make some new friends, and be inspired!

***I know that many of you blogging with blogger, are not able to post due to the outage.  I’m so sorry for your frustration, and I’m trusting that you will be able to post before the week is up.

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.
  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!

    Just to let you know – http://www.blogger.com is down right now for maintenance. Looks like they’re experiencing some more serious problems … so it might take a little while before bloggers with a xx.blogspot.com address can access their dashboards again (therefore – I can’t post my quilt right now … I just hope that the draft will be waiting for me when I can access it again!) Anyway, thanks for hosting this Festival – can’t wait to visit all those lovely quilts!

  119. Amy, thanks so much for another fab time viewing all the quilts in the BQF Spring 2011.

    And thank you for having me on your site as the Featured Quilter for Monday, May 9th. After our interview, I sort of forgot about it — and even though you reminded me in an email last week, I forgot again! (Now that I qualify for AARP I guess I can truly call it a ‘senior moment.’ :) )

    Anyways, I was amazed to see the traffic on my blog, Artelicious, spike, especially in older posts, like “My First Quilt.” Ah-ha! I looked at Blogger’s “audience” stat and saw my name! :) Thank you for giving me such a thrill.
    Hugs, Tina in San Diego

    Thank you Amy for hosting such an uplifting festival. I have enjoyed looking at everyones beautiful masterpieces. I decided to place my newly finished P2 solids quilt-a-long project in the e-Festival. I really enjoyed doing it and I loved the finished quilt. The orange would be my favourite colour in the quilt.

    I posted about my restoration and completion of a HORRIBLY damaged quilt top (circa 1880s) at http://domesticat.net/2011/05/island-misfit-quilts — it’s by far the most intense salvage job I’ve ever done on an antique quilt top.

    It was beautiful, though, and worth saving. It will never be perfect, but the design was original and striking, and it deserved to be used and loved.

    Hi I have entered a quilt in Blogger’s Quilt Festival. It’s the first time I have entered anything and was a little nervous. I have only been quilting since last August and am in awe of the fabulous quilts I have seen. Since entering I have had some lovely comments from people so even if I do not win any giveaways I am happy with the positive response. So if any newbies out there are hesitating to enter – do it – I am glad I did. Thank you for hosting this Festival. Linda x

    I’ve looked at only half of the quilts so far and I’m so in awe of all the talent! I was a bit embarrassed to enter my little quilt but the design is just so adorable and it is the cutest one I’ve made so far, so I just went for it! (Not my own design, by the way, hope that is ok!)

    Hi Amy,
    I am thinking a lot on signing this festival. For two reasons, one that I do not consider myself a skilled in sewing quilts, the other reason was that the blanket, what I prefer to introduce, is not complete yet. My friend encouragement eventually send to you.

    Thanks, and I congratulate everyone

    Hi Amy :-) One of your participants had linked up to Sumo’s Sweet Stuff’s Market Yourself Monday. I followed the link to her blog, and then her link to your party.

    I have always had this thing for quilts! And now thanks to you I have an easy way to view LOTS of them. Thanks! :-D

    I had hoped to link up the quilt I made last spring for our grand daughter, but you very clearly stated new postings only. Aw well.
    If you personally would like to see it, you can find it here –> http://thebzhousethatlovebuilt.blogspot.com/2010/06/green-quilt.html.

    While I am not participating in your party, I did do a posting promoting it. ;->

    Hi again Amy :-)
    yesterday I commented that I wouldn’t be linking up the quilt that I had made for my grand daughter, seeings how only new postings were allowed. Others then encouraged mt to again feature it (in a new posting) and link it up, so I did.

    the thing is, even though I have linked it, and deleted it, and again linked it, ten times total I think, I can not get the name to show up. I also do not know how to just ‘refresh’ it.

    So-o, my quilt is the unnumbered, unnamed one, in slot #537. the title is suppose to be ‘my thrifty quilt’. And this is the link to it – http://thebzhousethatlovebuilt.blogspot.com/2011/05/my-thrifty-quilt.html

    I have started my process of working my way through each and every linked up quilt. What a beautiful task I have taken on ;-> Thanks for making it available for my viewing pleasure. Such inspiration!!
