The Wednesday Quilt Show

If it's Wednesday, it must be The Wednesday Quilt Show! This week I'm going to show you some more quilts found on the internet. Again, I have no connection to these quilters at all and they don't know me! I just thought their quilts were interesting. Click on the caption if you want to go to the site where I found them.

If you want your quilt shown here with a link to your blog or website, please shoot me an email at milodesigns@embarqmail.com or check the submission guidelines found to your right. No blog or website? No problem - I'll share your quilt as well! I hope you enjoy The Show today!

Dandy Dandelions!
I love dandelions. Very few things transform so completely as to be entirely unrecognizable from their original state. The ultimate do-over! Over the years I've learned to appreciate that they are not really weeds at all but a gateway to a child's imagination.When my kids were small, they would bring me bouquet after bouquet of dandelions - so full of love! I had cups and cups on my windowsill full of yellow bouquets. The white dandelions were "wishing flowers." Just make a wish, blow and all your dreams could come true! Isn't childhood wonderful!

In honor of these wonderful memories of my children's' childhoods, (and my lawn as I look over the expansive dandelion fields!) I give you: DANDELIONS!
Blowin' in the Wind. She shows the whole process
of making this quilt. Very ethereal.
This is actually a free pattern by Robert Kaufman! I might just make it!
Small Dandelion. this is my most favorite of all these quilts.
It perfectly captures how I would make a quilt about dandelions!

Splendor in the Grass by Caryl Bryer Fallert.
This, I believe is photo transfer. The effect is wonderful.

Gerrie's Dandelion. It looks like a painting to me!

  1. What an appropriate subject for the quilt show on the same day that I have noticed my yard starting to bloom with the little yellow things. It is amazing what people can do with a humble weed. Thanks for sharing these quilts.
