Vintage quilts or quilts being resold for craft purposes do not qualify. (Exceptions made for extraordinary circumstances, vacations, illness, etc) Definition of quilted: made of two layers of fabric stitched together with a padding held in place with decorative stitching by hand or machine. Includes bed coverings, wall hangings, purses, bags, table coverings, pillow coverings, postcards and cases of all types. Quilts without batting, such as cathedral window, yo-yo quilts, crazy quilts and summer quilts are also acceptable as long as they are quilted - not just two layers of fabric edgestitched together.

Original Post

Who here has participated in a link party before? I love them. If you're new to them, it's a "party" where readers share a link from the party host site back to their blog post and visa versa.

The Quiltsy blog is going to start having a link party every Wednesday for us to show off our Works In Progress (WiPs). You can link to anything quilting-related that you've worked on over the past week, but haven't finished yet. I'd love to see what you're working on! I'm nosy that way. :P

Hopefully this way we can support each other, learn from each other, and cheer fellow team members on to the quilting finish line.

If you'd like to play along, it starts in the A.M. this coming Wednesday at the expected URL: teamquiltsy.blogspot.com/

I hope to see you then!

Without a blog, is there some way to participate?

Posted at 9:00pm Mar 12, 2012 EDT

Gail, I believe it will allow you to link to a photo in a Flickr account, if you have one?

Posted at 12:22am Mar 13, 2012 EDT

Ok - it's off and running! Here is the URL if you would like to join in:


Let me know if you have any questions, or run into any issues. Hope to see you there!
