All Summer Sewing Contest Entries:

Good luck! xo, Jennifer


  1. I would like to join in the fun, but I have a question. Does my quilt have to be quilted? or just the top pieced to enter it?

    Thank you for a fun contest!

  2. thanks Jennifer, for hosting this fun party! There are already some stunning entries. xo, di

  3. Do you have to have a blog to enter? I have a quilt I’d love to enter that I just finished today but it seems like I can’t since I do not have a url.


  4. Anya: If you go to you can get a free “studio”. It’s a new site that lets you upload your project pictures and share information about the project. Either that or you can use flickr.

  5. Wasn’t sure if my road trip set was home dec or accessory? Since it’s something you USE I went with accessory. Thanks for a fun, summer contest!

  6. So, I have a mini quilt that is a wall hanging – which category would it be – quilts or home decor? I’ve seen minis in both categories.

  7. i also have a wall quilt that i want to enter.. does it go in the quilt category, the home dec category, or both?

  8. Darn, it says the Wearables entry is closed. (A couple of the other linkys are still open.) :) Here is mine!

  9. I know I’m pretty late, but thanks for that great opportunity!

  10. Wow, there are some stunning pieces, you’ll have a hard time to choose.

I love hearing from you! Let me know what is on your mind.
