QuiltCon Here I Come! Charming Chevrons Juried-In

I just got the best news ever! I just found out that my Charming Chevrons quilt was accepted into QuiltCon, the modern quilting conference taking place in Austin, Texas in February.

I am practically speechless and beside myself with joy! I am already registered to attend the conference, and in fact just booked my plane ticket today.  This is like icing on the cake! 🙂

Here is the front of Charming Chevrons (you can click to enlarge):

And here is the back (which I think is just as much fun as the front):

Charming Chevrons Back

One of the quilting goals I made for the new year was to get a quilt accepted into a major show. Well, now I can cross that one off the list. (Or maybe I should say I’ll add to it?)

I will update the goal to read, “Win a ribbon at a major quilt show.” I’m sure this new goal will take much more than a year to accomplish, but I believe anything is possible with enough patience and perseverance!

    Wow, that really is pretty. The front has really bright, funny colors but the back is really popping with the quilting with colored threads. I’m still trying to learn how to do the quilting let alone adding color too it. Fantasitc.

    Congratulations! and well-deserved!! Love everything about this quilt – the combo of pebbles and straight lines in your quilting makes the whole thing pop! Will be pulling for you to get that ribbon!!

    your quilt is gorgeous. I had one questions though, how did you quilt all the little circles on the solid colours? Do you have a tutorial on that?

      Yes, I have a little demo on FMQ (Free-Motion-Quilting) as part of my tutorial series. Click on the link in this post at the top that says “Charming Chevrons”. That will link you to all of the tutorials I put together for making this quilt.

    CONGRATULATIONS, Christa! You must be so excited and proud. Your Charming Chevrons is awesome; and the quilting you did make it awesome times 2. Best of luck in acquiring that ribbon – you certainly deserve it.

    Christa I am so happy for you. I have a long way to go to free motion quilt like you do – but at least now after following you I at least want to practice more. I even Free Motion Quilted a table topper – It turned out ok but I know I need lots of practice. 🙂 Anyway so happy for you Lynn

    Congrats, Christa! It is a gorgeous quilt! I am still in awe that you used all different thread colors. It looks amazing and changing threads is the thing I hate most!

  9. Raffaela V says:

    Dear Christa, CONGRATULATIONS! Very well done. Here’s hoping you get the ‘Ribbon’ as well. Thank you so much for all the great tutorials. A happy, healthy, successful 2013 for you and your lovely family. God Bless, Raffaela Vasta
