The Festival begins on Friday! Are you ready?  I hope so!  I have a bit of work to do before I am, but most of the sponsor details are in place, and you will see them popping up on my sidebar later this week!

If you don’t have your button yet – add the code to your sidebar, or share it in a post.  The code is in my sidebar (it doesn’t like to be in posts…).  The linky will be open this Friday (October 26) through the following Wednesday (October 31), after that there will be a nomination form available for your favorites.  If you are scheduling your post ahead be sure to include a few specifics about your finished quilt:

  • Quilt Measurements
  • Special Techniques used, if any
  • Quilted by…
  • Best category

This will help with the nomination process later – thanks!


I also have a few winners to announce from last week’s giveaways.

Beginner’s Guide to Free-Motion Quilting by Natalia Bonner goes to:

(Thanks for your suggestions – I believe the piece I made is destined for a pillow cover.  I’ll share more soon!)

Home Sweet Quilt by Jill Finely goes to:



Congratulations to Kelli and Val, I have emailed you both!


I’m off to work on my BQF post and work on a binding for my entry quilt!

I hope you have a great Monday –
