Vote Now and Give-Away: Fall’s Glory Quilts

Quilters' Show & Tell

Grab yourself a pencil and some paper as it’s voting time for this week’s Quilters’ Show & Tell event. The theme is Fall’s Glory Quilts.

This week’s guest judges are Soma from Whims and Fancies and Benita from Victoriana Quilt Designs. They’ll both have 100 bonus points to assign to up to four quilts.

I’m thrilled to introduce a new sponsor this week, Beret from On The Trail Creations. Be sure to visit her site to see her incredibly gorgeous quilts too.

On The Trail Creations


Hi, I’m Beret from On The Trail Creations and I’m excited to be this week’s sponsor! I live in Alaska with my husband, three kids, 1 dog, a few chickens, and a bunny. I love living where I am surrounded by inspiration!

I have been sewing for a long time, but have only discovered art quilting in the last 6 years or so. I started making quilted greeting cards because they were a small project that I could try lots of different techniques on and finish quickly. I started selling them at bazaars, and they have really taken off. Now they are in several gift and quilt shops around Alaska, and I have downloadable patterns to make them on my web site.

I also teach free motion and art quilting classes at one of our local quilt shops. My greatest sewing related passions are learning new things and encouraging other people to learn new things too! I’m just getting going making patterns, I’ve had a little trouble finding time to work on them when I have to keep up with card production! I would also like to do more wall quilts, but again, time is the issue…. Maybe when my three teenage homeschooled kids grow up, although they are helpful too!

I do have a new pattern to launch this weekend, which I am excited about! It’s been brewing in my head in several forms for over 20 years, so I’m happy to see it get to this point! It is called "Winter Chickadees" and is a pattern for a quilted menu planner.

BONUS: In honor of "pattern launching weekend", I am offering a free card pattern of your choice to anyone who purchases this pattern, details on my site. Also, I am hosting a "Facebook like" contest; anyone who likes my Facebook page between now and Monday will be entered in a drawing for a finished card like the one being given away in the Quilter’s Show and Tell contest.


This week’s winners will each receive one finished quilted greeting card and one pattern to make their own. The top quilter with the most votes (community votes plus guest judge points) and someone leaving a comment below will both win.

  1. Rose says:

    These are really beautiful, how could I choose just one? Tundra Swan really caught my eye first, but I loved the Happy Birthday one too. Oh, and the chickadees, the snowman, the leaves, too hard to choose just one!

  2. Gene Black says:

    It was difficult to choose. I really like Raven Moon – so I am saying that it is my favorite. I also love Wildflower II and Three Leaves.

  3. Megan Williams says:

    What wonderful patterns! I ‘think’ my favorite is Raven Moon.

  4. P. Alt says:

    I enjoyed the website. Sweet postcard patterns. My favorite was Wildflower III second was Three Leaves.

  5. Hilly van Zuylekom says:

    Gorgeous quilts and very difficult to make a choice. “It could be autumn” is definitely my favourite.

  6. CeCe Sellman says:

    I really liked Red Maple. Just beautiful. I like the fun ones to make and have a chuckle over. I do think that the autumn colors are the most fun to work with. But my Favorite one has to be Mr. Turk!

  7. Elaine says:

    Beautiful patterns. My favorite is Sandhill Crane. Thanks for the chance to win!

  8. Sharron says:

    It was hard to choose only three, they are all wonderful and with so much talent.

  9. Linda Webster says:

    I absolutely love the Black-capped chickadee pattern. I feed these polite little birds black-oiled sunflower seeds in the winter. Each chickadee politely takes one seed from the feeder and then flies away to a tree limb to eat it.

  10. Teresa Luczak says:

    What a lovely array of colors and quilts. My favorite is the Chickadee’s. I,too
    feed them. The Raven is wonderful too.

  11. Gailene says:

    Raven Moon… absolutely LOVE it!!! But it was not an easy choice. Her patterns are so lovely and unique.

  12. Nicole Sender says:

    The Black-Capped Chickadee Card Pattern is definitely my favorite pattern. Chickadees are my most favorite birds. They are so cheery and fun! Each year we have at least one clutch born in our bird house.

  13. Patty says:

    My favorite is the Chickkadees. I can watch them in my back yard.

  14. Gunda says:

    Love the Raven Moon pattern

  15. Carol says:

    The postcard designs are fantastic. Milepost touches a nostalgic nerve from our Alaskan trips and having received Milepost magazine for awhile. Raven Moon is lovely with the swirls and colors. Those are probably my favorites, if I have to name them.

  16. DeAnna says:

    They are all wonderful but I like Wild Flowers I and II the best.

  17. Susan says:

    They are all nice, but I couldn’t choose just one. My top 5 are:

    Happy Birthday (I am a musician–I always go with the music stuff)
    Tundra Swan
    Black-Capped Chickadee
    Raven Moon

  18. Cindy A. says:

    Hmmmm…it would be a toss up between “Black Capped Chickadee,” “For the Birds,” and “Let it Snow.” Loved them all!

  19. MoeWest says:

    My favourite is Wild Flower 1.

  20. Lise says:

    So beautiful making it so hard to choose
