Blogger's Quilt Festival - Spring 2012


Here is my entry for the Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side.  Yes, I am totally jumping on the bandwagon here, but why not?  I am a blogger, and I did complete a couple quilts so far this year.

Amy's Creative Side

I choose the mini-quilt that I made for the Name Game Swap (see that post here).  Why?  Because, so far this year, it was the most fun to make.  I loved making all those 2 inch blocks around the side.  I loved incorporating her daughter's nickname, "The Cupcake Princess" into the quilt too.  All I can say is, fun, fun, fun!    In fact, I am a little surprised that I haven't converted to an all mini, all the time, type of quilter.  That's how much fun it was.  And, of course, I learned a few things along the way, especially about mini's.  You can see that on my "Lessons Learned" page at the top.  

Now about the festival.  All I can say is WOW!  If you are a beginner, please check out the link above.  At the bottom of the page, you can view small icons of all the quilts entered in this festival.  The images are so diverse, and so beautiful!  You really get a sense of all the different types of quilts and quilters out there, even if you don't click on over to their individual pages.  I also liked going to the previous festival's posts.  There are even more pictures there, and it was really neat to see what was popular and hip and when.  Really, go check it out.

One last plug, when the voting opens, please vote for someone!  My particular favorite is Esther over at Threads on the Floor.  I am in love with her Urban Nine Patch quilt.  The quilting on it is absolutely spectacular and very deserving of a festival ribbon!!!

What are your favorites??

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
