QuiltCon 2015 Part 2 ... the quilts!

There were over 300 beautiful quilts on display at QuiltCon 2015 in Austin, TX, sponsored by The Modern Quilt Guild. The wide variety was amazing, and the level of talent was inspiring! We couldn't possibly share every quilt with you ... but we would like to share some that spoke to us as we walked around the show.

Best in Show winner, Kathy York with her “i Quilt.”

One thing that we noticed in many of the show quilts - prints! The modern quilt movement looks like it is moving beyond only solid fabrics.

Please mark your calendars for QuiltCon West 2016 in Pasedena CA. The show dates are February 18th through the 21st.
