Tag Archives: Show Me Something linkup

I'm a little late posting as I've spent most of my energy this week dealing with our broken range. My kids attempted to cook lunch on the stovetop on Monday and that's when we found out it wasn't working. As soon as the essential part becomes available (which is currently on backorder for mid-October) we'll be back in business.

At least this month's quilt challenge is a little one... or a really little one! In September, please Show Me Something Mini! The smaller the better! I've chosen to share the smallest quilts from my studio (the "mini minis") in this post, but please use your own definition of "Mini Quilt". It can be pieced, whole cloth, applique, improv, traditional... as long as it's small. :-) Maybe a small wall quilt, a table topper, a placemat, a mug rug, a coaster... or even smaller. Remember, this linkup is part challenge... please link up new or old projects. Show us what you've got!

Thank you to everyone who showed off their star projects last month.

Another first of the month, another Show Me Something quilt challenge and linkup. In August, Show Me Something Free Motion!

Free-motion quilting has so many opportunities: all-over stipple or meander, echoing motifs on fabric or in piecing, detailed micro-quilting, ruler work! Triangular meandering is one of my favorite motifs.

Sometime in August please Show Me Something Free Motion! Choose a quilt project you've already finished or use Show Me Something as a one-month quilt challenge to finish something new. Just make sure to linkup by August 30. See all the details below.

Welcome back to the monthly Show Me Something quilt challenge and linkup. Stars are very prevalent in quilting. There are a wide variety of fabrics with stars on them, many traditional blocks that feature them, and stars can be easily free motion quilted. They can be paper pieced or foundation paper pieced. They can be featured in geometric quilts or landscapes. The list goes on. This month, Show Me Something with Stars!

Sometime in July please Show Me Something with Stars! Choose a quilt project you've already finished or use Show Me Something as a one-month quilt challenge to finish something new. Just make sure to linkup by July 31. See all the details below.
