Bloggers Quilt Fest - Fall 2017
Woohoo! I just came across Amy Ellis' blog post that the Fall 2017 Bloggers Quilt Fest is underway! Amy is a Martingale author and pattern designer who has been doing this online festival in conjunction with Fall Quilt Market for about ten years now. There is also a Spring Festival but for the past few years she has run that one through Instagram.
This time around she is going back to the old format: everyone will post the link to their blog post about their quilt to one page -- the one announcing the start of the festival. Amy says the linky software she is using will indicate with a check mark which posts you have already visited so you can keep track of your viewing.
This is always a great way to see what people are making around the world and find new bloggers whose work you'd like to follow. If you have something to share, be sure to post your link to Amy's site by next Monday after which a random number generator will pick the winners. Just follow the instructions for adding your link on the festival announcement page. There are great prizes up for grabs so it's worth a shot to enter!
I don't have anything to put up this time around since I haven't been at the machine much lately. That means I can spend my time taking a trip around the quilt world and see all the beautiful work others have to offer. Always an inspiring pleasure!!
