QuiltCon Highlights

February 27, 2018

QuiltCon 2018 ended on Sunday, and I wish that I had been able to attend to see so many of my quilt-y friends.  I thoroughly enjoyed seeing all of the photos and videos which were posted during the week, and it was wonderful to be able to see most of the show virtually.  Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to post during the show!  If you haven’t seen many photos of the show, I suggest looking at the Instagram hashtags #quiltcon2018 and #quiltcon to see most of the quilts on display.  Since I wasn’t there, my personal highlights will be pretty short.

1. Even though I wasn’t there, four of my quilts were able to attend in my place!

2.  Lateral Ascension received a third place award in the minimalism category!  I have a tendency to struggle with minimalism, so this was a big accomplishment on a personal level.

3.  Pivoted Plaid is going to be included in the Best of QuiltCon 2018 Traveling Exhibit!  It is thrilling that this quilt will be shared around the country in the coming year!

So who’s ready for QuiltCon 2019?  Nashville is an easy drive from here, so I will definitely be there next year, along with a lot of my local Modern Quilt Guild!

    Congratulations on your accomplishments. Of the 4 quilts those two are my favorites. Perhaps it is the color combinations. I’m not sure. But all of the quilts were well worth the entry into QuiltCon. Perhaps I will make it to QuiltCon in a couple of years.

    I loved seeing all of your quilts at QuiltCon. You are always trying something new! Congratulations on your continued accomplishments, it is obvious that you work hard to hone your skills. I especially liked “Overlay”, it is one of my favorite color combos, and your quilting and design really captivated me. I visited it several times to admire it. I hope to make it to Nashville.

    I attended QuiltCon and saw these quilts which looked familiar. I didn’t see the quilt information easily as it was in a small font. That would be my only criticism of the show. I’ll attend the next time it returns to the west coast. Loved your quilts!
