I can’t believe it’s already time to get packed and ready for QuiltCon which is happening next week! It’s been a whirlwind of a year for our family so far – moving into a new home and getting ready for our younger son leave for his mission to China this week. The older one will be moving back home for awhile to work for us, and we are sooo glad we got the bigger house with an extra room! During all the chaos, we were even able to sneak in a last minute Disney vacation over the weekend. It was a great way to celebrate all the changes happening this year!
Disneyland is truly our happy place!! Although it was a chilly weekend, I kept nice and toasty warm with my MQG Hoodie I got at last year’s QuiltCon!
But now, it’s time to transition back into quilting mode big time!! And I’m so excited to do that with my first teaching event of the year! If you are planning on attending QuiltCon but didn’t make it into my sold-out workshops, I have great news for you: there’s still room in my lecture, plus I’ll be doing several free events on the flow show all weekend long. So be sure to come up and say hi – I’d love to chat with you!

So far I have attended every QuiltCon since the event began in 2013. This will be my third time teaching there and it’s my favorite show of the year! I always get inspired when I go and I love learning more about the modern quilting aesthetic. Plus, it’s super fun to meet up with friends, many of which I’ve met because of my involvement with QuiltCon!
I’m excited to hang out in my pal Sarah J’s booth next week. She’ll have many of my fabrics, patterns and of course my books! Stop by to say hi and I’ll be happy to sign anything you like… (a book, a pattern, your arm, a blank check… just kidding!!)
Are you planning to attend? If so – I’ll see you there!!

Looking forward to seeing you!!
I hope I get there…! If I don’t…let me know if the MQG is doing another nice hardbound book like they did last year to document the show. I want to get one! Have fun! Catherine Purifoy (210) 857-5168 Sent from my iPhone 8+
I’ll see you there!!! 🙂
Definitely plan on running into you while I am there! I am so excited as it will be my first. I did your Squiggles SAL a year or two ago…
All the best for QuiltCon to you both, enjoy & take care. Hope you have time to take some photos.
Have a fabulous time and enjoy every minute! So gad you got to squeeze in a bit of time at Disneyland as a family while your youngest son was still home. Great family time is so special.
