Good Morning, Quilters!

Welcome to Day 4 of our online quilt show!  I’m so excited…we have a great show today…but first a few thoughts.

More than 30 quilters participated in our first ever, Inbox Quilt Show–Thank YOU to all the quilters who participated!  

We’ve had more than 15,000 views in the first 3 days-!  Woo hoo!  Thank YOU for all who “attended”…

See Day One HERE   Day Two HERE  Day Three HERE

WE ALL HAVE TO START SOMEWHERE

I’m not sure, but I bet 15,000 people didn’t attend the first AQS show?!

I’m just saying….

YOUR QUILTS

As you know, I’m always saying “this motif would work on any quilt from Modern to Traditional…”  The quilts in our show prove it–we have seen every quilt style in our show–and seeing is so much better than saying!

The other thing that delights me about these quilts is how YOU have taken the Tuesday Tutorials and made them YOUR own to personalize YOUR quilts!  Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!

Enough babbling, the quilts are rolling in as we speak…

THE INBOX QUILT SHOW

Gayle Kush stitched this as a challenge-for a group of art quilters.  She used Dots and Dashes to repeat the geometric appliqué and hand embroidery-suits this quilt perfectly.  Look how many different techniques used in this quilt…beading, appliqué, embroidery, machine quilting…Love this quilt, Gayle!

Michele Leonard has been very busy quilting this year.  The Celtic Knot Medallion Quilt was made as a wedding present for her son and daughter-in-law. I love the medallion quilt, but my favorite pattern of all time — the Log Cabin…Great job, Michele! Love your quilts and your quilting!

Amy made this quilt for her cousin’s daughter, Ally’s graduation. Ally wanted a tree quilt with a kitty, a quilt and a book under the tree…( A quilt on a quilt…great concept!)

Amy did a great job personalizing the quilt with music fabric and map fabrics symbolizing Ally’s future travels!

Way to go, Amy!  And Congratulations, Ally!

Here’s Michele’s description:

I quilted this vintage double wedding ring using rose design for the background spaces and continuous curves for the ring wedges. Although I use a long arm rather than a domestic machine, I have found your classes on Craftsy and your tutorial quite helpful. 

Thanks for the Craftsy endorsement, Michele!

Your quilting is beautiful!—and who is that handsome helper of yours?

Here’s what Veronica has to say about The Inbox Jaunt:

…just “discovered” you on your blog.  I have been machine quilting for a long time, taught it for about 15 years.  I always look for new and fresh ideas.

I hit the jackpot when I found you.  Your designs are wonderful, your instructions are the best I have ever seen.

I signed up for your class on Craftsy.

Thank you, Roni!  Can’t wait to see more of your Watermelon Quilt!

Karen Parker Poling made this quilt for her daughter who is the VP of a tulip bulb company and loves the Seahawks….She used The Football motif.
Great way to use quilting to create a very personal gift…I think it’s a first for me to see footballs and tulips together!!
