What a fun few days I have had! I spent 5 days at the Modern Quilt Guild’s quilt show, QuiltCon, held this year in Savannah Georgia. I saw lots of amazing quilts, great vendors, and took some fun classes. Here is what I got done in my classes:
Crazy Eights with Amy Friend, from her book Intentional Piecing
This is a stunning quilt, and all through the use of various sizes of stripes in your fabric. Can’t wait to continue working with this one!
West Chester by Heather Jones, from her book Quilt Local
This was also a fun way to spend a day.. and I got 2 letters done. Yeah! (Not sure why the background looks blue-ish on the Y, it is not like that in real life).
Bunny by Violet Craft from House of Hoppington
The third class I took was a half-day class with Violet Craft, paper-piecing the bunny from her full pattern. This will take a while to complete- the pieces are TINY! But the bunny is so cute, I think that will be motivation enough to work on this soon. Maybe not the whole quilt though, unless I fall in love with her technique for paper piecing. Photos below are not my bunny.. I only pieced the ears in class!
Here is a link to Flickr with some quilts from the show- charity quilts, show winners, and just quilts I really liked. I have missed quite a few, but just put that down to being overwhelmed!
My friend Jeannie Jenkins won second place in the Traditional Made Modern category.. here is her stunning quilt!
And finally, here are some photos from a challenge I was thinking of joining.. but didn’t! The photo of a building was the inspiration, and I love all the quilts that were inspired by it.
