Festival of Strings
Welcome! Today is a lovely day for a festival! If you could be here, I imagine we'd string a line over in the meadow to hang our quilts outside. Then we could stroll around admiring all the colors and shapes with a happy chorus of oohs and ahhs. We might want sunshades too - pretty little umbrellas, just like proper ladies (gents also welcome)!
Please join me in this virtual festival to celebrate the beauty and joy of scrap quilting. The Festival of Strings welcomes all! You may enter multiple quilt in the festival, so long as each one is:
*a finished quilt top or finished quilt of any size. "Finished" means you are ready to quilt and bind it. It does not need to be quilted/bound yet, but it could be. 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 strings. If the quilt originated as a concept to use long, then strips of fabric and you succeeded in making the quilt top mostly with strings, it's a sure thing. You did not have to use scraps this year!
*completed in 2013. 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 Strings is open for entries today, May 28th through May 30th (midnight, eastern time). On the 31st random winners for all door prizes will be announced, and we'll open voting on 5 finalists for our grand prize - the huge roll of Warm Company batting. 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!
