Quilting Arts Comment-A-Thon

6 Jun 2011

Quilting Arts is kicking off our very first  "Comment-A-Thon" in our forums. This week (Monday, June 6th -Friday, June 10th), we invite you to participate in the  "Comment-A-Thon" by visiting the Quilting Arts Gallery and leaving positive comments on another person's artwork. You can leave as many comments as you like. There are over 1,600 quilts to choose from!

art quilt, quilting artsThe "Comment-A-Thon" was inspired by QA reader, Edyth who suggested it (thank you for your great idea!) and put together by Cheryl (Muppin), our forums moderator (a huge thank you to Cheryl as well). Cheryl describes the "Comment-A-Thon" as,  "A little like a marathon and a telethon both in that we want to race to spread lots of love to all the wonderful artworks in our gallery!  A kind word about someone else's art is surely inspiring to help boost their confidence to keep going."

And to make things just a little more exciting, we'll also be randomly selecting 10 comments left between Monday, June 6th through Friday, June 10th to receive a Quilting Arts grab bag full of quilting goodies. All you have to do to be eligible for a prize is to participate in the "Comment-A-Thon." (I will announce the winners on Monday, June 13th.) 

Here's what you can do to participate:

-Go to the Photo Galleries and click on Share Your Quilt & Fiber Art.

-Scroll through the wonderful, beautiful, awesome artwork there uploaded by your fellow quilt artists.  Be sure to get to the last page of them too!

-Make a comment on the artwork that speaks to you and tell the artist how much you like that piece.  We would love for everyone to have at least one comment! Also, don't forget about the "star" rating system too!

-Repeat all week!


I look forward to reading your thoughtful comments and viewing the new quilts posted to the gallery!

Hello meta 1. Thank you for your comment! Yes, you are correct, Edyth also deserves much thanks for her idea and getting everything started. Cheryl (Muppin) gives Edyth a shout out in the instructions for the "Comment-A-Thon" but I've added her above as well. A big thank you to Edyth!

I just wanted to underline the power of praise mentioned by Muppin.  I know what encouragement does for me, and I also get 'fed' by seeing everyone's take on life/art.  Win/Win gallery! Go, Commentathon!

And being a 'different' person...I started at the back, did the math, and figure if I look at 13 pages a day-I can view everyone's art. It might have to be more if everyone posts new works! Yay!
