Virtual Trunk Show

Are you ready for a virtual trunk show of quilts?  This brilliant idea comes from Soma at Whims and Fancies.  She’s hosting a Virtual Trunk Full of Quilts and I thought I would jump on board.  There is no judging at this show, just appreciate of quilts past and present.


I’ve picked seven of my favorite quilts to show you.  They range in size from mini to full.  If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll recognize most of them.

I made this rainbow mini quilt for an Instagram swap earlier this year.  It’s my own design, and it’s one of my favorites.

This is my Classic Meets Modern BOM that I finished last year.  Actually, I still need to stitch the binding down!

This next one, Watch Out For Those Geese, was designed for the Jaftex 85th Anniversary blog hop.  (The picture below shows the quilt top only, but it’s completely finished.  I just don’t have any good pictures of the finished quilt.) I’m obviously going through a rainbow phase!  You can find the mini version, along with the tutorial here.

I finished this red, white & blue quilt, Oh My Many Stars, back in 2013 and it’s a classic that I will never get tired of.

I’ll be bringing out my Quilty Christmas quilt soon to decorate for the holidays.  This was an Instagram sew along last year from Lori Holt at Bee in My Bonnet.

Another holiday favorite from last year is my little Nordic Mini Quilt.  The tutorial is still available if you want to make your own!

Another mini quilt that I made earlier this year is still hanging on my sewing room wall.  If you want more details, you can read about it here.

  1. Hi Julie! I loved your trunk show! Any suggestions as to how I can find the instructions for the Quilty Christmas Quilt – a quilt-along by Lori Holt. I have had no luck on Instagram. Thanks for your help

    1. So I totally butchered your recipe and it still came out so good! I only used 1 egg, 1/4 of almond milk, 1/4 cup of water, and butter crackers instead of saltines… I don't know why i attempted this instead of just running to the store and getting the right ingredients, but mmmm it was still so good! Loved the crisp in each bite.

    2. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this during my hunt for something concerning this.

  2. What a wonderful trunk show! Thanks for showing us some of your favorites, I love them all and I now have the urge to make a rainbow quilt, yours are beautiful!

  3. Loved your trunk show! I want to do some Quilts of Honor for two friends that are retired military and my nephew who is in the Marines in Afghanistan. Obviously does not need one there but want it ready when he returns. “Oh My Many Stars” looks like a perfect quilt for that project.
    Thank you for sharing.

  4. Oh every one of your quilts are so beautiful!!! I always love the fabrics that you choose!
    I think that the Nordic Mini and Mini Shine quilt (last one) are my very favorites.
