Did you go to QuiltCon? Did you love it? I hope so! I didn’t attend this time though I hope to in the future. It’s held during school vacation week here in Massachusetts which makes it even trickier to get away than usual (which is tricky enough for a mother of three). But I was represented at QuiltCon by my quilts at least! Fortunately, some nice friends photographed them for me too.
I was shocked to learn that my mini quilt, Curious, received third place in the small quilts category. I had entered my quilts with no expectations whatsoever. I was just happy that they were included in the show. So this was really a bonus. Elizabeth Hartman does such a nice job with the ribbons too.
My Haberdashery quilt was also hanging. It was in the Use of Negative Space category.
Kite Tails was there as part of the MQG Pattern of the Month display.
And Melon Ice was there as part of the MQG Showcase.
I really enjoyed seeing pictures of all the quilts that hung in the show, made by quilters all over the world. Thanks to everyone who shared them on IG for those of us at home!
I also loved seeing the pictures of the charity quilts. That was really rewarding after having worked with the MQG Charity Committee to plan and organize this portion of QuiltCon.
My guild, the Seacoast Modern Quilt Guild, made this quilt for the charity of our choice. So many beautiful and creative quilts were made by approximately 60 guilds and groups of individual members. Thank you to everyone who participated! There are some lucky charities out there, ready to receive some beautiful quilts.
