Show Me Something Orange from Goer

Hey, it's April! I didn't want to post on the 1st, lest you think this is all a foolish joke. I want you to seriously Show Me Something Orange!!

Your interpretation of orange is up to you... light, dark, vibrant, earthy. Anything goes! Your project might be all orange, orange may be the feature, or maybe orange is a supporting character.

Let this peek at the orange wall from The Color Factory (when it was in San Francisco) give you some inspiration. Your project can be something new you make this month or something you've finished previously ...

Show Me Something with Squares from Goer

Tons of fabulous solids quilts were linked up last month. Thank you to everyone who linkup or visited others. If you haven't had a chance to check them out, hop over to see what folks shared.

And without further ado (especially since I'm late and backdating this to the 1st!) this month's challenge is to Show Me Something with Squares! This feels almost too easy, but came to me through an idea that I'm wanting to work on (though will certainly not finish this month).

Maybe your quilt is a square. Maybe there are squares on ...

Show Me Something with Solids from Goer

Thank you to everyone who linked up their challenge quilts last month. I can't believe it's already the first of the month again. I am excited with so many new things happening in my studio. I think I was inspired by this upcoming theme (as well as a class I'm taking -- more on that later) as I placed an order for a lovely assortment of solids this morning.

This month, Show Me Something with Solids. This can be a quilt in all solids or something with a mixture of prints and solids. Your finished projects can be ...

Show Me Something That’s a Challenge from Goer

Quilt challenges are some of my favorite ways to start (and finish!) a project! I love having a limited focus delivered by the challenge whether it be a color palette, style, theme, skill, or tool. And I love a deadline for getting things done! I recently wrote about the now underway season of Project QUILTING challenges. This month, Show Me Something That's a Challenge, that is, a quilt you've finished from a challenge prompt. This can be something from a past challenge or something new you finish this month. Please linkup up to 3 projects.

Show Me Something with Stripes from Goer

Is anyone else wondering how it is already November? I missed a meeting this week, because I didn't know what day of the week it was... that about sums up life for me right now.

In November, please Show Me Something with Stripes! How do you like to use stripes in your projects? One of my favorite ways to feature strips is a striped binding. Show us all* your stripes. Skinny stripes, thick stripes, striped piecing, striped fabric, wonky stripes... are curved stripes a thing? Sure! Include those, too! Remember, this linkup is part challenge... please link up new ...

Well, hello April! Was March just a complete blur in your life? I hope you and yours are happy and healthy. We're doing okay at my house. Maybe okay enough that I can get to the backlog of blog comments, blog writing, and other work that went by the wayside in March.

Purple Projects Wrap-up from Goer

In January we had 43 projects linkup up for Show Me Something Purple. I loved seeing a mix of new and old. Here are a few that caught my eye.

I drooled over Blue and Purple Hidden Wells by Lorinda of Laurel, Poppy & Pine from the moment I saw her fabric pull. The saturated blues and purples are my jam. There's a great optical illusion from the secondary pattern, too!

 

Vasudha of Storied Quilts used the lovely, soft Quiet Shades fabric collection for her Purple Mountain Majesty quilt. She did a phenomenal job blending the fabrics and making purple ...

Happy New Year! I'm writing today to introduce a new monthly linkup here at Sarah Goer Quilts. I hope you'll join in by sharing your work below. Read on for more info on Show Me Something and about January's theme: Purple!

One of my favorite parts of quilting has always been community. While this has changed in format over the years with the options currently available on the internet I've always enjoyed connecting to other quilters, sharing my work, and being inspired by what they have created. In recent years I've been further inspired by ...
