Blogger's Quilt Festival

All this week I have been seeing posts about The Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side.  As a very new blogger, I had not come across this before.  It is a wonderful collection of finished quilts from all over the blogging world in one place.  What a great way to find inspiration and find a few new blogs to follow as well.  Thanks Amy!



As Paige from Quilted Blooms was convincing me to enter, (Thanks Paige!) I realized that I don't have an awful lot of finishes this year.  

I do have one though, and it is one that I thought turned out so lovely.  It was my Shadow Block Mini.  Janice from Color Creating and Quilting and I did a little mini hop a couple of weeks ago.  You can few the posts HERE and HERE.  I was more than pleased with the way my little quilt turned out.  

It is now hanging in a prime space in my sewing room so it can brighten my day every time I sit down to sew. Because, sometimes, you just have to keep those quilts for yourself.


Make sure to swing by the Festival and check out all of the beautiful quilts and amazing blogs.  And I know that most bloggers love getting the comments, so make sure to let them all know how their quilts have inspired you.    #IGQuiltfest

    1. This is my first time experiencing it as well. I had a hard time finding anything to enter, I have far fewer finishes than I thought I did. :)

I love receiving comments from you. It makes my day. I try to respond to each and every comment via email. Unless of course you are a no-reply blogger because I don't have a way to respond to you, but I appreciate and read the comments just as much.
I hope you have a wonderful day.
Happy Quilting!
