The online Blogger’s Quilt Festival kicks off this week, on Friday, October 25th to be precise. Hosted by Amy Ellis, it’s an online quilt show open to anyone who loves to quilt and enjoys blogging about their creations.
Rather than stressing about making perfect quilts, it’s a chance to share and connect with others who share the same passion. There were over 600 entries in last spring’s show and it was like inspiration overload! My two entries from last spring’s festival are shown below:
Charming Chevrons, one of my early quilt along tutorials:
Roses for Katelyn, made for my sweet sister’s baby girl:
If you have a recent finish, I encourage you to enter. It’s a great way to find new blog followers and fantastic blogs to follow! Plus it’s pretty fun to get positive feedback on your quilts. And you might even win a prize, either for entering your own quilt, or nominating your favorites. You just can’t go wrong by participating in this fun event.
Here’s an idea – show off one of your quilt along quilts, or finish up a current WIP!
For complete details including the festival schedule and rules, be sure to visit the Blogger’s Quilt Festival Main Page.
Be sure to check out last spring’s winners. You may even recognize some of the quilts from people you know (wink, wink)!

Thanks for the heads up! I am also a new blogger (2weeks now). I am so excited that this year I get to enter my quilts!
Beautiful quilt work
I really like the Bloggers Quilt Festival and to see all the wonderful quilts. Are you entering again this year? If so, will be looking forward to seeing what you enter.
Thanks so much for the heads up. I love seeing what people have been making over the last 6 months or so.
I have a lot of UFOs waiting to be quilted, but only a few actually done. Need to get a better quilting machine. But, I am going to participate!
I am looking forward to it. As a new blogger this will be my first time entering 🙂 I the spring I believe that bloggers were able to enter two quilts but I do not see that on the fall instructions. Do you know if we can linkup one or two quilts?
I’m not sure – I haven’t checked all the details yet 🙂
I’m looking forward to it but I still have yet to decide which quilt(s) to enter. Last fall I was a finalist and that was so exciting.
