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 prizes for simply participating!
So far I’ve come up with the following categories:
- Favorite story to go with the quilt
- Favorite new to you blog
- Favorite baby quilt
- Favorite throw quilt
- Favorite bed quilt
- Favorite group/bee quilt
- Favorite two color quilt
- Favorite ROYGBIV (color wheel) quilt
- Favorite applique quilt
- Favorite pieced quilt
- Favorite hand quilted quilt
- Favorite home machine quilted quilt
- Favorite professionally quilted quilt
- Favorite quilt photographer
- Favorite art quilt
- Favorite doll/mini quilt
- Favorite wall hanging
What do you think? Too many? Not enough? I’d love your suggestions!
I thought it would only be fair to share this info with you now, while you have time to plan your entry, and make pacts with your friends ;)
So the festival maintains, the non-judged status, and overall fun, we just take notice of favorites while roaming the festival! I do want to maintain that all are welcome to enter, no matter how new or advanced a quilter, hopefully I’m not scaring any of you away.
That’s all I’ve got for now, I’m working on a button for everyone, and will share it with you as soon as I have it!
Have a great weekend ~
PS ~ I have a few changes in mind for sponsors as well, category involvement, and more! Email me if you would like to have more information.
