Tag Archives: Show Me Something linkup

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 something you've previously finished or something new you finish this month. If you're up for making something specifically for this challenge, keep in mind that any size is great! (The less time I have for a challenge, the smaller I make my project.) Please linkup up to 3 projects.

 

Maybe you enjoy monochromatic palettes.

Perhaps you like bright, vibrant colors.

This next set was the palette I used for a mini quilt I finished in January... once I write a blog post about it I'll link it up below.

I've pulled the following fabrics to use on my Color of Connection quilt. The quilt along started today. Consider joining in!

And these two beauties were the starting point and inspiration for my fabric order this morning. Kona Peapod and Cerise.

I look forward to seeing how you've used solids in the past as well as any new quilts with solids you finish this month!

Here are the linkup details:

  • The monthly Show Me Something quilt linkup will start on the first of the month and continue until midnight (PST) on the last day of the month.
  • You may linkup a maximum of 3 new or old finished projects that fit the theme.

  • Participation in the linkup grants me permission to use an image of your project in a future blog post, with credit and a link back to your post.
  • If you linkup from a blog post, please link back to this post in your post. If you post from Instagram, you can tag me @sarahgoerquilts.

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.

If you've participated in any kind of quilt challenge in the past, please linkup what you've made. If you're looking to try out a quilt challenge for the first time, here are a few options in January:

Project QUILTING 12.1: Illuminating + Ultimate Gray (January 10 deadline)

Project QUILTING 12.2: theme announced on January 24. (January 31 deadline)

Pantone 2021 Artisan Challenge (January 29 deadline)

Covid Mini Quilt Challenge (January 7 deadline)

Hoffman 2020 Challenge (April 1 deadline)

Or you can choose any past challenge as your prompt for a personal challenge this month! Want a random challenge? Comment below and request a challenge prompt and I'll give you your very own challenge prompt for the month. :-)

Here are some of the quilts (my daughter and) I have made for challenges in past years. (Click on images to read more about them.) I also recently shared specifically about quilts I've made for Project QUILTING challenges.

Possibly My First Challenge Quilt (circa. 2005)

Nine-Patch Challenge

Pantone Ultra Violet Quilt Challenge

Vintage Reimagined Challenge

My Daughter's Red, White and Blue Challenge

I look forward to seeing what you've created for quilt challenges in the past as well as any new challenges you finish this month!

'Tis the season for gift giving... and for makers, 'tis the season for finishing up those handmade gifts. For our final Show Me Something linkup of 2020, I'd like to see what you're giving this holiday season. Please share your handmade quilted and sewn gifts. I promise not to spoil the surprise. (Or come back and post after your gift has been delivered.) Still not sure what you'll make? Here's a list of some of my favorite, fast handmade gifts. And remember, you can like up gifts of years past as well. :-)

I have some go to gifts I make over and over, including the Open Wide Zippered Pouch...

...and the Lined Drawstring Bag.

One year I made a ton of key fobs.

And of course, I love to give a cuddly lap quilt.
