QuiltCon 2016–Quilts Made by Modern Quilt Guilds

image

QuiltCon was everything that I hoped it would be and more, but my brain is still on overload. People, workshops, gorgeous fabric, and what felt like miles of amazing, modern quilts. The experience actually started on the Super Shuttle from the LAX airport. All six of us in the shuttle were on our way to QuiltCon. It was fun bumping into a couple of my shuttle-mates over at the venue.

Some of my favorite quilts that I saw at QuiltCon were done as part of the QuiltCon Charity Quilt Challenge. Below are just a few of the quilts made by various modern quilt guilds all over the world. The last two did not have labels on the quilts so I don’t know who made them. If any of you know who made either of these quilts, please let me know, and I will credit them in the photo caption.

Inspiration at QuiltCon was everywhere! I could truly line up wonderful quilt projects to do easily until 2020! Can you believe that year is less than four years away!?!

    Those are some fabulous quilts, Mary! I can see why you say that you are on overload. Colors, design, textures everywhere! I also thought the placard introducing the charity collection was laid out beautifully!

  4. Thank you SO much for posting these photos. I didn’t go to QC this year but got to go last year. I’ve been living vicariously through Instagram this year. The thing that struck me about QC is that I got to meet so many people that I had followed through social media. It felt very welcoming to go to that show. And the quilts….. well all I can say is… go at least 2 full days so you get to savor every moment!!
