Bloggers’ Quilt Festival :: Spring 2012

  Welcome to the Festival!  Every time we gather online to share quilts, I’m so inspired, thank you all for sharing your quilts, and their stories. Each story is just as important, as the work put into your quilts.  The story is where we get a sense of you, and the love put into each stitch. Please know that your skill level, or style of quilts are not in question – everyone is welcome to participate.  Join in the fun!  Make some new friends while you browse the show, and be inspired! This spring I have added categories, and a viewer’s choice quilt to the list of prizes! The schedule for the festival is this:

  • 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

I will make it super easy for you to nominate your favorite quilts, and later vote for your favorites. If you haven’t already subscribe to my feed to make sure you get all the updates.  *And when you nominate your favorites, you will earn an extra entry in the general drawing! Before I mention all the prizes, a big THANK YOU to our sponsors!  They have generously donated prizes for all of you to win.  Be sure to stop by their shops, browse our vendor mall, while taking in all the quilts.  They love being the suppliers for all your fabric and sewing needs! As you make your way through all the quilts, email me if you find a quilter that you think would make a great feature here.  I’m always looking for more Featured Quilters! Finally, be sure to leave a comment on this post, to be entered to win one of the fabulous giveaways.  Good Luck! About the sponsors:

      Jenny – I tried to check out your quilt but the security on it prevents those without “permission” from accessing the page. Just thought I’d let you know in case other people are having the same problem. The thumbnail looks really pretty, though! :-)

    Thanks Amy! This is my favorite time of year in the blogging world. I love this festival and love sharing and reading about quilts that mean so much to all of us! My entry is #427 and I have blogged about it a few times in the past few weeks. This was my inspiration to finish up a baby quilt I’m working on. I didn’t manage to get the baby quilt done in time but shared a quilt that means so much to me – my Celtic Cross Quilt. Thanks again!!
