It's a Block Party...join!

We've been working on a really fun new project for the blog...and we're not the ones creating things, you are!  So this post may be a tiny bit lengthy, but trust me it is going to be fun and worth it!


QuiltStory's Block Party!




Basic idea: YOU (any and all of you) will create quilt blocks and submit them to QuiltStory's Block Party.  There will be three categories in which you can enter your block. Modern, Traditional and Creative.

How to submit: Three weeks from today we will have a linky party starting 12:01 am MST on Monday February 7th through Wednesday February 9th closing at 11:59 pm MST.  During this time you will submit your quilt block in one of the three categories, Modern, Traditional and Creative.  You can submit up to three blocks.

Categories: You will be the judge of which category your block falls in to, but it can be only one.  Modern or Traditional can mean the layout of the block or the fabrics.  Creative is referring to a block that maybe has applique, a pieced house block, etc.  You don't necessarily need to be experienced to enter this contest!  If you are unsure or new to quilting, I'd search through Flickr to get ideas on some quilt blocks!

Prizes:  We have got some amazing prizes for the winners of this contest!!  Let me introduce you to the sponsors and all the goodies you could win!


First Place Prizes
3 yard bundle of Organic Circa 50 Birch fabrics and pattern
$60 value

$50 Gift Certificate

$50 Gift Certificate


Runners Up Prizes
$25 Gift Certificate

$25 Gift Certificate

$25 Gift Certificate

Half Yard bundle of 9 Ivy Trellis by Riley Blake fabrics and pattern

$25 Gift Certificate

Determining winners: We have fabulous celebrity guest judges to help Heather and I determine the winners. We wanted to do it this way because first a foremost we value these ladies opinions greatly!  Secondly we didn't want the popularity of a blog determining a winner based on votes.  We will basically be judging on skill and style and we will not be biased in the least!  The judges are Twin Fibers, SewSara, Flamingo Toes, Diary of a Quilter and AmyLouWho.  Over the next couple of weeks we'll get to know them better and tell you why we think they deserve to be our "celebrity" judges!


Here is our cute little button.  If you are going to participate in the block party, add this button to your sidebar. Whether or not you participate, we'd love for you to do a post about it, post a button, help get the word out there!  Not only will this be a great way to win prizes, but a great resource and inspiration for quilt blocks!
Fresh Poppy Design

Boring additional details if you care to read on!:

  • Winner will be announced on Friday February 11th
  • The quilt block can be any size
  • Make sure that you enter a single quilt block, ie not a close-up of a block on a quilt :)
  • Your block does not have to be your own original idea, however if you did get the pattern or idea somewhere make sure to credit them in your post
  • If you are not a US resident and win a prize, you'll be responsible for shipping charges
  • EDITED TO ADD: If you do not have a blog you are still eligible to join!  Email 1-2 photos of your block(s) to myquiltstory{at}gmail{dot}com subject Block Party Submission.  We will then link your block(s) to the linky party 2/7-2/9.
  • EDITED TO ADD: Your quilt block(s) should be completely unfinished.  ie not in a quilt, not bound, not quilted....just raw edges!
More questions?  No problem, comment here or email us at myquilststory[at]gmail[dot]com

Are you excited??!?!

Whoa! How cool! do we mail in the block or just send a picture of it?

Thanks again for including me among the awesome judges! I'm excited!!

Thanks for considering my question.

Leah said...

WOW! Wonderful Judges... I'm starting to think about my blocks....

iiSwanSongii said...

I definetly want to participate! I need some clarification though. It says I CAN enter 3 blocks. Do I have to pick only 1 category to enter those 3 blocks, or can I enter 1 block per category? I have an idea for a creative block, and traditional block, and a modern block so I was hoping to enter one block per category. Thanks for the giveaway!

Christie describeHappy said...

What a fun idea! I will have to see if I can dream up something fun for this!

Thearica said...

Just put the button on my blog and will get 3 quilt blocks ready to go! Thanks for the chance to win some fabulous prizes!!

~The Bargain Babe from *Zucchini Summer Blog* said...

Ahh I want to enter but I've only ever made ONE quilt. I may give it a whirl anyway. :) Can't wait to see everyone else's designs as well.

Also--fabulous prizes. WOW!

Aunt Spicy said...

How did I miss this? I totally need to get going on it!

Unknown said...

Whoa put the button on my blog and will be thinking seriously for a block idea or two to post. This is so cool.

Cindy Jo said...

This sounds wonderful. I'm a bit hesitant to enter. I've quilted for my family for years, but I know that what I produce is not the greatest. I DO have a question though, does the block have to be hand quilted or, if I enter, can it be machine quilted?

Nina... said...

Looks like such fun! I'm already thinking up some fabulous blocks to contribute. I gave the Block Party an entire post on my Blog!!

Unknown said...

This will be a first for me, but, I'm in. I will get my blog updated in the morning with all the details.
I needed a little motovation, and, I think I found it. Can't wait to get started!!!

Melissa said...

I'm sorry if this was addressed in the post or if I"m just blind ... but when is the deadline to submit blocks? Thanks!!!

Lori said...

I dont know anything about linky parties. How do I submit? I am planning to make a block. My other question is, does it have to have binding around it?

BTW I am new to your blog, I found it through Twin Fibers. I am excited to page through.

Anonymous said...

I made a post AND put it in my sidebar. I'll be ready tomorrow!

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

Hi ..sounds like fun...can the block already be quilted...or do I need to start fresh now?

Katie @SwimBikeQuilt said...

there are some great blocks linked up! I have a question--is this blocks we have made specifically for the Block Party, or can we submit blocks we have made in the past. I see both here and wanted to check before I uploaded mine. :)

Donna Badgett said...

Hi all! Aren't the blocks gorgeous!!! I hope I can get my blog linked to yours soon. I've already linked yours to mine. What a hard decision to pick from these beauties!

Grammy T. said...
