QuiltStory's Having a Block Party!

I love to participate in fun contests and this one looks tempting! Here's the scoop:

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!!

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!
