    it looks like the favorite home machine and professionally machine quilted might have been mixed up a bit. Seriously though, this looks like it was so much work to put together, thanks for doing it for us quilt bloggers.

      I agree! But decided to go with the nominations. I’m making notes for improvements next year!

  2. Great job, Amy!! Thoroughly enjoyed the show yet again!!

    It looks like your Professionally Quilted and Home Machine Quilted categories have the exact same quilts… I’m going to hold off on voting there.

    so excited to be included! Thank you so much for the festival – it has been a blast!

    thanks for putting this together Amy – one thing for next time you might want to encourage people to put in their blog post how big the quilt is, how it was quilted and if they did it themselves – there were a lot that I couldn’t figure out what size they were and even if it was hand quilted or machine quilted.
    This sure took a lot of work on your part and want you to know how much we all enjoy it.

    So many great choices.
    A huge THANK YOU to you, Amy, for doing all the work to have this Festival. I enjoyed peeking at all the blogs and seeing such amazing work by wonderful people.

    What wonderful quilts! I’m afraid I didn’t participate myself this time since I was at Market and then recovering from Market :)

    Thanks for such a great event!

    Thank you for all your hard work in organizing this – so many stunning entrants from around the world. This truly was better than Quilt Market – these are the people who ARE the quilt industry!

    EXCELLENT!!! I hadn’t even noticed the voting part … so thrilled to be nominated and embarrassed that I didn’t nominate any others … but it’s a great idea and I will so pay a lot more attention next time!

    Amy … thanks again for the semi-annual quilt fest … it is really great to see the best work put forward by so many people who simply love the craft and may not get the visibility that the ‘top’ quilters get … you’re the best!

    I sent Lori (SewFrench) a congratulatory email that she had made 4 categories with her bubble quilt (she is traveling and had no idea). She was worried that votes for her would be split 4 ways, but I told her that didn’t seem to be an issue since each category is separated in voting. She is VERY thrilled and overwhelmed!

    From the first time I discovered your online quilt festival, I’ve been a fan. I love seeing all the different kinds of quilts and designs and color combinations — all of it. Adding the contests this year offered a step-up to another level for participants and for you too, I bet. I love the thrill of this added element and how it motivates us to do our best. Thanks for BQF -2012!

    This was my first time entering a quilt into the Bloger’s Quilt Festival, so I am totally thrilled to be nominated in the home machine quilted category! Thanks must go to Amy for all the work she puts into organising this, and to anyone who might have nominated my quilt! Better go now before I run out of exclamation marks!

    A little shocked that my quilt made it even in the top five for nominations…*embarrassed face*
    Thanks for being such a gracious host and I think we all appreciate the exposure.
    I still haven’t made it all the way through ALL the entries, my google reader is busting at the seams from all the new blogs I am following!

    Thanks again Amy! It was a wonderful surprise to be nominated but most of all – the many wonderful comments I received. I’m so happy to be a part of something so positive and inspiring. I learned how to quilt by reading blogs and hope my little piece of the pie inspires others the way it did me.

    Wow, that’s a lot of work! I found it hard to pick categories for nominating; I wonder if next time it could work like a ‘real’ quilt show, where entrants choose the category(ies?) they are entering when they submit…

    Hi Amy, I was confused with the nominations too. I think it would be good if you wrote a reminder in the description in the beginning of the festival that everyone who enters should put the stats with the blog post so people can see what size the quilt is. A lot of times I couldn’t decide if it was a wall hanging, a throw, or a bed size quilt. Thank you so much for your hard work, it was so much fun and very inspiring!
