Welcome! Springtime is the best time for festivals. If you could be here, I imagine we'd hang our quilts outside in the gentle breezes to admire all the colors and shapes with a happy chorus of oohs and ahhs. Accompanied by some strawberry shortcake? Mmm... the tastes of spring!
Please join me in this virtual festival to celebrate the beauty and joy of scrap quilting. The Festival of Scrappiness welcomes all! You may enter multiple quilt in the festival, so long as each one is:
*a finished quilt top of any size. "Finished" means you are ready to quilt and bind it. Mini's can be quite small and are often hung on the wall. Other patchwork projects, such as pillows or mug rugs, do not qualify.
*made "mostly" from scraps. If the quilt originated as a concept to use scraps and you succeeded in making the quilt top with at least 60% scraps, it's a sure thing. I realize that often you'll need to use some yardage (especially solids) to bring your idea to life.
*completed in 2012. It doesn't matter when you started your quilt top, if you finished the quilt top this year, it can enter the festival!
The Festival of Scrappiness is open for entries today, March 26th through March 28th (midnight, eastern time). On the 29th random winners for all 20 door prizes will be announced, as well as our grand prize winner of the Flea Market Fancy collection, gifted by Sew Love Fabrics. Some prizes do not ship internationally, see details in prize announcement posts here, here, here and here.
A festival is most fun if you also enjoy the quilts others have made. Please honor some quilts that catch your eye with a visit!
Enter your quilt(s) below by uploading an image from your computer. The form will request the "URL of your blog post" but you may leave that section blank if you do not keep a blog. Blogging about the festival is not at all required. However, if you have blogged about the quilt you are entering, link up to it so we can read more!
