    Ohhh I’m so glad to see this category added – I’ve been designing most of my own work – traditional and art pretty much from the beginning and its nice to recognize that fact. Sometimes I think that more work goes into the design process than the actual quilt itself! Thanks Amy

    I agree, this category is a great addition to the show – I wish our local shows would add an ‘originals’ division :-)
    So tough to choose just one favorite!

  28. […] Twice a year, Amy of Amy’s Creative Side puts on Blogger’s Quilt Fesitval, a wonderful linky event so quilt bloggers can share our quilts and see the work of lots of other talented quilter’s in blogland. I am new to blogging and new to knowing about this festival, so I was enjoying reading about everyone’s amazingly creative and beautiful quilts that have been submitted. It did not even dawn on me that I could enter. Ha! Well, after a super kind suggestion by a fellow blogger (Hillary, thank you so much!), I decided to write up my process for creating my custom design, Color Weaving and submit it to the Original Design Category.

    Such beautiful quilts. I am in the process of cleaning my home from one corner to the other and eliminating as much as I can. The money from all the items I am selling goes toward a new sewing machine. To win this Baby Lock would save me so much time in researching machines and making the decision … I could be making an entry for the next Festival.

    I’m a first timer on here and I have loved quite a few
    different quilts. It would be so very hard to pick just one as my favorite. Wish this would have posted sooner just saw this on the 27th. I would like to thank all the companies for donating their products so all of us could have a chance at winning to try out your merchandise.
    God Bless and
    Thank You
