WELCOME TO THE QUILT SHOW!! --- "MEN QUILT TOO"!!

I am so very excited to introduce you all to several fantastic male quilters!

Yes, as we all know each time a quilter is talked about we all get these images in our heads of a lady sitting under a quilting frame working her magic with needle and thread.  Quilting has come so far in the past years to the point that hand quilting has had to share space with some very talented longarm, shortarm, and domestic machine quilting.

And not only that, women have had to move over and make way for their male counterparts because they have been bitten by the quilting bug as well!

And that is the main objective of this quilt show!  To bring awareness to the fact that men quilt too, and they quilt extremely well!!  It used to be a rare occurrence to see a quilt made by a man, but more and more, you see fantastic quilts popping up everywhere made by these men!

So, grab a cup of tea and sit down for a spell and visit these men on their blogs or websites!  Take the time to read about how and why they got started in the quilting world.   Scroll through their blogs to see past works and open up their galleries on their websites so you can get a full appreciation for the work that they put in to their quilting and to the talent that they hold!  They offer so much inspiration that you will surely feel compelled to re-visit their blogs and websites again and again in the future!

The show will run from October 1 through October 15th!

How do you visit these quilters? -- Each quilter will link up at the bottom of this post via a linky platform and all you need to do is click on your desired button and you will be taken to the website of that quilter.  When you have visited him, come back and click on a different button and be taken to another quilter's site.  Continue doing this until you have visited all of the quilter's sites!

Some of the quilters may not link up on the same day so be sure and come back all during the show to visit any quilter you may have missed!  They will have from October 1 - October 15 at midnight, Pacific time, to link up!

This show is strictly for male quilters so I would ask that all  female quilters refrain from linking up.  Let's give the show floor to these talented men!  Thank you so much for understanding.

_____________________________________

We do have something for everyone who comes through this show for the next 2 weeks though... DOOR PRIZES each and every day!!  For men and women both...everyone who leaves a comment on this thread for each day of the show, will be entered to win the prizes!

One comment will not do it for the entire show... You will comment on Oct 1 to be eligible for the door prize on Oct 1... You will come back on October 2 to leave a second comment to be eligible for the door prize on October 2...and so forth, all the way through October 15th!.... This will keep you coming back to make sure you have not missed a quilter who may have just linked up!

One comment per day, right here on this very same post...... I will count the comments at midnight for that particular day and enter that number in to Random.org to determine the winner for that day's door prize!

You may comment as many times in a day as you wish and are inspired to, but only your first comment for that particular day will be counted for that day's door prize.

____________________________________

Can you believe today marks the last day of the show!!  The past 2 weeks have flown by!

I have saved the following door prize for the last day as it's value is right at $100.00! 8 yards of fabric from Art Gallery Fabrics!!  (8) one yard cuts of this luscious fabric is going to belong to one lucky reader tomorrow morning!




Rhonda of Quilter In The Gap won this amazing yardage bundle of fabric from Art Gallery Fabrics!

    Thank you for the chance and the view of the quilts.~

  11. Just checked out all the guys quilts and was quite blown away by their talents.

    I'm voting for Lane Wilhite. I have been following his blog for over two years, his quilts are amazing. I'm so impressed with his free motion quilting. We share a love of collecting and restoring vintage sewing machines.

    ReplyDelete
  62. How fun! I visited one of the guys last week and will find someone new today to go check out. :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. What a great way to show the beautiful work of these talented men. I'm a male quilter as well, but my blog is in Dutch only. I hope I will find the time to write a story on my blog before the end of this show, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to translate it in time, since my native language is Dutch. But I love to see the work of all my fellow quilters ^_^

  83. Very, very impressive. These are some terribly creative quilters. Seeing and reading about the quilts is a real treat.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I so enjoyed looking at all these quilts. I'll be checking out some more links tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I love wooden bowls! I have one that was turned by my grandfather, and another by a local artist. I'm looking at some links today.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Here I am again! I went back and looked at all of them again along with one or two I didn't see before.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I am making my way through this great group of men. It seems like your parade is growing....or is it that I am just enjoying myself more?

    ReplyDelete
  88. really love wayne kollingers school house alphabet. is there a pattern for that?

    ReplyDelete
  89. I love this! I can't wait to check out their quilts and vote. I'm a little late getting on board.. but very excited.

    ReplyDelete
  90. The bowl your husband made is beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  91. What an amazing idea for a 'show'! It's sort of like going to a school; there are tons of female teachers and a few males here and there! Quilting is usually seen as something women do, but it's definitely not. Can't wait to start checking out blogs!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Wow, I didn't realize how many men quilters there are out there. I was quickly drawn to Stuart Vanderbloemen's link. So I went there first. And I have to say, I love that red/green quilt. Great work Stuart.
    I'm having a great time visiting and will return tomorrow to visit some more. Thanks for putting on a great quilt show. And you gentlemen are doing an awesome job. : )

    ReplyDelete
  93. What a beautiful bowl crafted by your husband! I voted for my favorite quilt in the Men's quilt show today. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I will always be astonished at what people produce. Isn't every possible song written? Every story illustrated? There are endless possibilities to what the human mind produces and I am constantly awed.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Love this show and saw some of the guys projects yesterday. Will visit some more everyday. I haven't decided yet who to vote for. That bowl is gorgeous and you have a talented hubby too.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I have decided today, I need a new machine. I think by reading a post today here, I have discovered part of my problem is my machine. It is fun learning from these guys!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Thanks for another great post for the male quilters. Now I'm off to read some more blogs. Your husband's woodwork is lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Beautiful bowl your husband made! I put a link up today on my post about your quilt show!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Your DH is so talented. I would be honored to win the bowl and fill it with quilty things....grin.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Checking in again today. Seems to be going well, congrats. Your husband's work is great!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Visited Mark Sherman's site. I think his work is lovely...some of it looks like stained glass windows.

    ReplyDelete
  102. You're husband always does beautiful work! And perhaps one of these days I'll win one of his pieces. (I can always hope!)

    ReplyDelete
  103. Hello, sorry I'm late . . .

    I've posted a link to my blog, which hasn't seen many of my quilts to date.

    But now, I have new male quilters to add to my list on a DIFFERENT blog!!

    This is gonna be exciting!!

    ReplyDelete
  104. Wow, great new blogs to follow. Off to check some more out. Great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  105. Wow that bowl is lovely. Are those of us in the show eligible to win it? (I hope I hope!)

    ReplyDelete
  106. I have a very unique problem----I was trying to vote but because of the title "For Men Only", I can't go to the place to look at the quilts to get the appropriate information. Every time I click on it I get an error message that says it is for "adults" only, and I forgot the password to change the setting on my computer from teenager to adult (temporarily). Is it possible for you to name it somethig else so I can vote? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  107. What a wonderful prize today, you are such a talented family.

    Off to look at the new men added today.

  108. These are incredible quilters! Thanks again.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I just wanted to say hello and a big thank you to Thearica for hosting this wonderful quilt show! It's great to see so many new people stopping by and following, and slowly but surely I'm adding you all back! (it takes me a little while to get from your comments to your blogs, because I can't see to navigate the Blogger site and it doesn't always help me get from point A to point B!)... if I'm not following you yet I will be soon!!

    I'd like to show you what I'm working on now - my second quilt! It's from one of the tutorials posted in another fantastic blog, Sew We Quilt (www.sewwequilt.com), and I liked this by Quilting in the Rain, a blustery rainy day quilt. This is the tutorial version, and the fabrics I'm using including lots of clouds, umbrellas, sayings about the rain, and a good dose of cute yellow ducks!

    Just copy and paste this into your browser:

    Don't forget to give me a link to your blogs if you're leaving me a comment - that makes it 200% easier for me to find your blogs! :)

    I'm really enjoying meeting all the new followers and fellow male quilters alike, and it's great to read all the comments you're all leaving here!

  112. I'm back again today and it appears there are more male quilters than the last time I was here. - Cathy L

    ReplyDelete
  113. Yes, I'm back . . .

    I've added a link to my second (of three) piece of internet "real estate," Knotty Celtic Knots. It's a different direction than I've taken with Tessellation Nation.

    I hope you like it . . .

  115. Great quilts! I wish I could get my husband to join you, men. He would do a great job.

  117. OK, meant to come back yesterday (LOVE the bowl) and say...this is such a great idea. Thanks for making it happen!!

    ReplyDelete
  118. You know what I am thinking as I am looking at all these "man made" quilts? It seems men are much less "uptight" when it comes to quilting. They seem to throw the rules out and just go with their instinct...

    ReplyDelete
  119. I love seeing the men's quilts. So original. Thanks again for putting on a great show.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Christmas fabric! Perfect time to get started on gift and decor. Off to see if there are any new links :)

    ReplyDelete
  121. Quilter inthe Gap observed earlier that "...men are much less "uptight" when it comes to quilting. They seem to throw the rules out..."

    She made me think.

    Any man who becomes a quilter starts by breaking an unwritten rule. Men who quilt are predisposed to ignore rules.

    As more men become quilters, I think you'll find more of them trying to conform to existing trends.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Really enjoying visiting all these blogs and seeing such great work! Very inspiring.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Nice to see even more guys joining in!

    ReplyDelete
  124. More More More! I have gone through each gentleman's photos - can you say IMPRESSED!

    ReplyDelete
  125. I would love Xmas fabric. I used all of my Xmas stash for stocking for the troops this year.

    ReplyDelete
  126. I'm enjoying seeing the quilts these talented men are creating. Thanks for doing this show.

    ReplyDelete
  127. What a great idea to feature men who are quilting. I'm enjoying all the quilts and reading the blogs I'm seeing as well.

    Thanks for the giveaway and a chance to win.

  128. Thanks for the fabric giveaway. Today I visited another male quilter blog - his wife is his mentor and he never reads instructions - just looks at the photo and wings it with his own twist. Learned some lessons today.

    ReplyDelete
  129. What an inspiration these men are. I'm a new quilter and I am in awe.
    Thank you for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  130. As I don't really "know the rules" I find myself often asking somebody how a quilter has done something - when I get around to trying it, it is usually based on how well it was described to me (since I can't see the original work very well) and how well I remember what I was told! haha! ... I've never been one for following rules!

    Can I encourage everybody to go listen to Quilter in the Gap's latest podcast (http://gapquilter.blogspot.com), in which she interviews me about being new to quilting and how I adapt being mostly blind. There's a lot more in the podcast than I was able to put into my competition blog post, and it's an entertaining listen as always from Rhonda's podcast! ... you'll find links on the blog page to the podcast via iTunes, a web player, and an mp3 download, however you find it easiest to listen.

  150. I have decided to dip my hand in the machine quilting instead of always sending out to the long arm. Inspiration from these men is great. I have learned a lot from visiting.

  156. I went to sew night at the quilt club and got to show off my quilt. I had quite a productive evening stitching squares for my second quilt too! They have one of those Baby Go cutters, which I'm definitely looking forward to learning how to use :)

    ReplyDelete
  157. Whoosh! I have some catching up to do :) Am looking through the quilts a bit slowly. Not unlike savoring that last piece of chocolate in the pantry. It's going to be tough to vote, I can already. Thank you for organizing this! How fun!!

  176. Well that's the first week of the show... I'm going to be biting my nails as we head into the second week wondering how the voting is going!

    One thing I'm sure of, I'm thrilled at how many people have come to take a look at my blog and some who have become followers. I've tried to go look at your blogs if you've left a comment and it's fascinating seeing what a variety of quilters there are! Every one has a slightly different approach and I'm learning some great things from reading what you're all doing! :)

    ReplyDelete
  179. I love this idea. There is a very interesting Dutch male quilter, Henk van Kooten. I could not find a website for him, but if anyone is interested, just google his name.

  188. I'm making my way through all the man quilters! They all have such great stories about how they got started.

    ReplyDelete
  189. Well, I hope you're not tired of seeing me, but I promise this is the last time!!

    Today, I linked to a bit of internet real estate that's very appropriate for this exhibition/competition.

    Two years ago, I started compiling a list of male quilters with an online presence (website or blog). Men Quilt Too!! has given me the opportunity to add a few more names to the list (though I'm always on the lookout for more).

    Ladies, get ready for a whole new round of "site-seeing," because there are nearly 75 names on the list!!

    ReplyDelete
  190. Such a great idea to add Miles. His work is really amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  191. I was just at Mark L Sherman's website. All I can say is 'WOW', no wonder I voted for him.
