Welcome to the Fall Blogger’s Quilt Festival! I’m delighted that you have come to share inspiration and be inspired!
The Festival is open to anyone that would like to participate no matter how long you’ve been quilting or how many quilts you have finished. The story of each quilt often relates quilters to one another, and is an important aspect of our Festival! I hope you take the time to write about how your entry quilt came to be and why it is important for you to share it. Likewise, I hope you enjoy reading about the quilts others’ have entered!
Like in the spring, we have categories to consider and nominate favorite quilts in.
The schedule of events is this :
October 26 – 31 Linky open
November 1 – 4 Nominations are made
November 5 -8 Vote for your favorites
November 9 Winners announced
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, and find a special treat for yourself, while taking in all the quilts. They love being the suppliers for all your fabric and sewing needs!
