Show And Tell Time! from Wedding Dress Blue

I love Show and Tell time!  Readers are so kind to share their progress and projects based on WeddingDressBlue tutorials.  Keep them coming!

Here is a lovely (and breezy) version of Growing Up Odd.  About time for me to make another one of those!  She used 2-1/2″ squares and the quilt finished at approximately 100″.  I love the blue sashing.

Here is a Twinkle Baby that Judy made and donated as a comfort quilt.  Such wonderful colors! Don’t the twinkl-y star points make you smile?!

018 Show And Tell - Mini Amish from Silly Goose Quilts

Geez Louise, I've made some crap in my lifetime.

This is another example.  Made to fit in a laundry.  I made two, hung them both and yeah, they looked okay at the time (we're talking years ago) but I'm seriously wondering what to do with them now.  I could chuck them, to be honest I'd be too embarrassed to give them away.







These small wallhangings are useless to me now.  But what to do with them?  Dilemma, dilemma.

See you soon!

013 Show and Tell - Scrappy Pinwheels from Silly Goose Quilts

This is another one of those what was I thinking quilts?




It's all fine, really.  But it's far too small to be useful.  And it's another one in the cupboard, wondering what I shall do with it.  I suppose it's big enough for a dog blanket, and that's a sad statement when the best you can find to do with it is to give it as a dog blanket.

Sometimes it's hard to look back with today's eyes, isn't it?  But at the time, there was a need for a design in ...

010 - Show And Tell (Country Friends) from Silly Goose Quilts

A thousand years ago, country chic was the rage.  We made dozens of little wall hangings that we would sell in the shop.  It's not something I can see anyone wanting nowadays, but back then we did very well out of it.

This was one of the many designs of its style we made all those years ago.







It would be hard to find a place for it now, but back then they were very popular!  It's another one of those embarrassing designs that I don't know what to do with.  But I have promised myself to ...

007 - Show and Tell (Flower Baby Quilt) from Silly Goose Quilts

Some of these older quilts I'm just downright embarrassed to show you.  But I'm going to anyway.








This one was designed for those customers who were brand new to quilting.  It's a very basic quilt.  Sadly it looks like a dog's breakfast but what can you do?

It's part of my quilting history and I guess it at least shows how far I've come?  

Happy quilting!

003 - Show And Tell (Checkered Hearts) from Silly Goose Quilts

Back into the Show And Tell routine, documenting and photographing all my quilts, even the less spectacular ones.

This one was made many, many years ago and has been washed and loved to death.
I look back now at all the flaws, and I need to remember that whilst it may look dreadful, we didn't know as much as we do now and it was loved to death.  Washed and washed and washed, now it's faded, the binding has begun to shrink, and it doesn't matter because isn't that what we make quilts for?  To wear ...

Westside Modern Quilt Club - Jan 2018 from Pine Needle Quilt Shop


  Happy New Year!


We've missed our monthly meetings, and with the full house at our January meeting, it looks like you missed us too. 

We started off by talking about our annual challenges. Last year's Transitions exhibit was well received at the NW Quilt Expo and we've been invited to exhibit at the Clark County Quilt Show in April. Our exhibit can include pieces from ANY of our previous challenges. That means it could be a Bridges, The Pearl, Modern Heritage, or Transitions quilt. If you would like to participate, please give your name and phone number ...

NEW YEAR, NEW START from Show + Tell


Who doesn't love a fresh start?

January 1st is really just a continuation in a long stream of days, but who doesn't love a fresh start? A new race to run (not from personal experience, I just thought it sounded good), new colors to explore, spend more time where I feel most alive, experiment more, love more, move closer to what God created me to do and embrace the wonderful gift of joy.


Got to hand deliver my last art installation of 2016 in Indianapolis for my amazing, creative Jennifer Storey. Now I can't wait to get ...
