  1. Rule #1 states that each entry must have its own blog post - would a link to a Flickr post be OK or are submissions limited to bloggers only?

  2. nice prizes megan. now you've got me thinking!

  3. Yippee!! Flickr is OK - I am so excited!!! I love HSTs, but have never really put the main focus of a piece on the HSTs. Anxious to see the triangly inspiration!

  4. Hi Megan! This is so great and I'm really exited because I have almost finished a quilt with HST - I just looked and it's exactly 75 % triangles! I'm happy to see also what amazing quilts there will be and so much new inspiration! x Teje

  5. Can't wait for this. I have now joined the HST world! So will be linking up for sure! =D

  6. It's too bad I can't enter my Bee quilt! I didn't make any of the blocks, but it's my favorite HST project! http://www.flickr.com/photos/kelbysews/6641141751/in/photostream/

  7. Sounds great, will def try put a project together

  8. I am working on a hst quilt right now...does it have to be completed by April 2, or can it be finished by April 16? I was not sure how the "dates" were working out with this. I bet I can get most of the quilt finished this week and have a blog post done soon.

  9. Do quilts have to be finished (ie quilted and bound) or can quilt tops be entered?

  10. I'm a newbie here... How do I link up my quilt to this fun festival?
