In the Air, With Show & Share!


I’m off to Providence, Rhode Island today for a few days of fun with the Ninigret Quilters of Westerly, and the Narragansett Bay Quilters of East Narragansett!

As luck would have it, there was no time to write this blog post ahead of time – I was taking care of book orders late into the evening and packing for this trip.

I decided as I was falling asleep last night that it has been a while since I have done a show & share post of readers quilts that have been sent in, and my little bit of waiting time at the gate this morning will give me just enough time to shoot this up!

Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful finishes with me.  They keep me inspired, and longing to keep stitching!

This finish is from Liz Mc, on I love the masculine feel it has!

Hi Bonnie,
I found your wonderful pattern online and made it for my son who is in college. I used the Alpine Woods fabrics by Benartex plus scraps. I think it looks great and it's just right for us since we live in Colorado.
Great job, Liz!  I’m sure he is going to love it!

Next up we have Shelley!
Crumb Quilt with geese sashings!
I love this, Shelley!  I am ashamed to say that my crumb bars quilt is still in the container.  I need to bring it out and finish it!  I’ve often admired the flying geese sashings, and I finally did a similar sashing for my Wild & Goosey quilt from the Addicted to Scraps Book!  So scrappy and fun!  I love how you have used them to frame your crumb strips.  Great job!

Smith Mountain Morning by Brenda T!
Pattern from Scraps & Shirttails II

Brenda sent a newsy email with not just one but THREE beautiful finishes!

She writes:

Hello Bonnie,
After finishing my Smith Mountain Morning (picture 1) that I started in your workshop in Spokane last year, I had a lot of 2” and 3.5” strips left and went hunting for a pattern to use them up.  In the same book I spied Holy Toledo and recalled that you had done a similar quilt in two colors…


Holy Toledo from Scraps & Shirttails II!

Taking inspiration from these I used up the leftover strips and here is the result(picture 2).  It started out as a leader and ender project last year as I was working on Fair and Square (picture 3), also from your Scraps and Shirttails II book. 
Fair & Square!
I have my eye on a couple of quilts in your new book, can’t wait to get my copy.
Thanks Bonnie for sharing your abundant ideas and tips.

Mixed Tumblers made a "few" years ago and recently pulled out of the closet and finished!
Thanks, Bonnie!

  2. Thanks for sharing these wonderful quilts!

  3. I love all things quilt. It's so amazing to see what people can do.

    On another note, what happened to the Quiltville Facebook page? I can't find it. I miss seeing what everyone is doing and getting feedback to my questions.

  4. Love all the beautiful quilts! Thanks for sharing!

  5. To Dreaming, the facebook page is there. Scroll to the top of the blog page and click on the link and you'll be there.

    Great finishes you shared with us. No matter the colors chosen, every quilt is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing them.

  6. There is a disease out there called "lazy-itis" that you quilters will never have to worry about catching! Too many scraps to be made into quilts and so little time to do it all. Beautiful work gals!!
