If you do not have a blog to write a post, consider joining Flickr and posting a photo of your quilt on Flickr and adding it to the group “SewCalGal Virtual Christmas Quilt Show”.

Quilts can be of any size and need not be finished.  But they must be a “Christmas” quilt.   Posts are also appreciated when they share your insights about the quilt, what you enjoy about the holidays and/or any traditions you enjoy.

5) For those that enter a Christmas Quilt (or Christmas Quilted item) into this show, their name will be entered FIVE (5) times for drawing on December 25th.  IF you are a follower of this blog and your post which reflects your entry shows that you are entering in the Virtual Christmas Quilt Show and provides a link back to this post!.  Same applies if you post your entry in Flickr (it must provide insights that you are entering it in this show and have a link back to this post).

6) Review all of the quilts shared in this show, leaving a comment at each site to thank them for entering their quilt in this show.  And leave a comment on this site to vote for your favorite quilt (for one point).

There is no judging in this show.  This is truly a virtual Christmas Quilt Show, where SewCalGal hopes you’ll share insights about your quilt and what you enjoy about the holiday season and/or traditions you enjoy.
