QuiltCon, put on by The Modern Quilt Guild is absolutely my favorite quilting event to attend! It’s taking place this year in Austin, Texas February 20-23 and I can’t wait!!
The first modern quilt show and conference took place back in 2013 and I’ve attended each and everyone one since. It’s a can’t miss event for me and this year I’m especially thrilled to taking classes, doing some meet’n greet events, and sharing my quilts on the show floor and in several vendor’s booths.
Meet ‘n Greets on Friday and Saturday
I’m thrilled to be invited for a couple of meet ‘n greets with quilt shops who will be selling my fabrics, books and patterns at the show. So please stop by and say hi, show me what you are working on, and get some tips and tips on machine quilting or modern design:

The LearninG Never Stops
I’m excited to be taking a whole slew of design classes from a couple of my talented friends, Heather Black of Quiltachusetts and Daisy Aschehoug of Warm Folk. I love gettin to be a student at the show this year because my quilting education is always a work in progress!
I’ll also squeeze in several lectures and I’m excited to check out the awards ceremony and other social events throughout the show. Let me know if you’ll be in attending any of these events:
My Color Weave Quilt is in The Show
I’m thrilled that my Color Weave quilt will be hanging in the judged part of the show this year. I entered it into the American Patchwork and Quilting Challenge category with the theme of “stripes” for this year. I can’t wait to see how others interpreted that idea!
Several of my other quilts will be on display in the Homestead Hearth booth, Loving Stitches booth and also the Hobbs batting booth. I love loaning them out so they can help decorate the vendor booths and also so they can be seen by a wider audience.
Some of my quilts that will be on display in vendor booths throughout the show.
Be on the lookout for Bling, Block Chain, Optical Illusion, Infrastructure and several more! If you’ve ever been to a national quilt show before, I’m sure you’ll agree that the quilts hanging up in the booths are just as fun an inspiring as those in the show!
So if you are planning to attend let me know – I’d love to see you! And if you’ll be watching all the action at home, check out the Instagram hashtag #quiltcon for some amazing inspiration from the show. Now it’s time to start dreaming about the quilts I’ll make for next year’s show……
