General QuiltCon Registration Opens Today – Check out the Lectures!!

Great news! QuiltCon 2018 registration opens today for the general public, meaning you do NOT have to be a member of The Modern Quilt Guild to attend. Although most of the hands on workshops have sold out (including mine), you can still get on the waiting list because cancellations DO happen. Every time I’ve taught at QuiltCon, at least one person has been able to get into my workshops last minute due to a cancellation. And the good news is, there’s still plenty of space available in the a la cart lectures – including mine.

The last time I gave a lecture about Modern Machine Quilting was back in 2016 for an MQG webinar. Since then I’ve updated my talk with all new material. The new lecture is called “Infusing Modern into Machine Quilting” and I can’t wait to share it with those who attend!!

Using lots of gorgeous examples from previous QuiltCons, I’ll be demonstrating how the modern aesthetic can apply to the machine quilting process. Learn how negative space, minimalism, graphic geometry, improvisation and other hallmarks of the modern aesthetic can be incorporated into your machine quilting work.

Attendees will gain a better understanding of why many modern quilters choose to employ an abundance of straight line and “industrial looking” designs rather than quilting overly ornate and perfectly symmetrical motifs. Suggestions on how to incorporate graphic and linear free-motion quilting as an alternative to straight-line quilting will also be explored.

QuiltCon 2019 CatalogI highly recommend registering for as many QuiltCon lectures as you can – they feature fabulous speakers and fascinating subjects. In fact, I guarantee you’ll learn new things about quilting, just by attending!

Even if you plan to attend QuiltCon and don’t even register for anything, you’ll still have a great time! The quilts are sure to be fabulous, the vendors are top-notch, and there will be meetups, “Sew-lebrity” sightings, and demos galore. I travel to a LOT of quilt shows and while I love them all, QuiltCon has a special place in my heart – after all, attending the first one in 2013 literally changed my quilting life. I hope to see you there!!
