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”…
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….
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!
Mary Grass stitched this fabulous Butterfly quilt… It looks like it was entered into another quilt show–Best of Show, Mary? Beautiful! How is this done? Is there a pattern? Tell us more!
Anita Hahn made this adorable quilt for her granddaughter’s baptism. The quilting is absolutely lovely! What a lucky baby!
Laura Parson was busy with the Quilt-a-longs:
I love how you personalized these, Laura!
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!
We saw the close-ups of Barb’s quilt last week…today, the whole quilt! Barb’s quilt is from a pattern from Angie’s Attic and is done in wool felt –(Barb is in a quilt group that specializes in wool quilts.) Thanks, Barb!
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?

Adorable! Love the backdrop too!
Mary Heard from South Australia stitched our quilt-a-long sampler. She calls it “Seaside Quilt”. I love the quilt and the binding!
Veronica Gerhardt, Danbury, CT
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!
Thank you, Quilters for your inspiration!

Good Morning, Quilters!
Welcome to Day 3 of The Inbox Quilt Show!
We start with Mary Griffiths-O Canada! (above)–Great work, Mary!–the Canadian map is definitely more challenging than the USA silhouette!
Next, we have three quilts by Ann Walsh. Be sure to check out her lovely website Ann Walsh Quilting. Ann does custom quilting and she has quilts for sale.
I love My Doodle Garden by Kathy Nesler! Kathy used one of our doodle tutorials as inspiration for this fabulous quilt sampler.
Jacqui Van Meppelen-Scheppink made this fabulous winter quilt–with the Dots-and-Dashes background. Love how she is displaying it, too!
One of my favorites: Claire’s Peony-with lots of rows! Fabulous!
Judy Purcell used the motifs very creatively for an art portrait–front and back shown here. Wow!
Julia Hamilton created this whimsical kitten candle mat. I love the balls of yarn! Great way to personalize!
This beautiful Christmas quilt by Rebecca Shaffer features stack and whack blocks and ornament and poinsettia quilting! Makes me want to take another whack at this method myself!!!
Now that IS a Yacht of Fun, Lynn Brazen—love YOUR sampler and the binding too!
Lynn also created this fun rag quilt. I’m sure it will be a family favorite!
I can just picture a white poinsettia on Lynn’s red poinsettia quilt! Very, very pretty!
Beautiful stitches, Lynn!
And the show goes on…
More quilts tomorrow!
I hope YOU are as inspired as I am!
