QuiltCon Together Begins Feb 18, 2021 – See My Schedule of Events!

I’m very excited about QuiltCon Together, the annual event presented by The Modern Quilt Guild. So far, I’ve been to every show and I’ve had a quilt in every show, too. Even though this year’s event is virtual, I still wouldn’t miss it. Here’s where you can find me – and my quilts – online from February 18-22, 2021.

QuiltCon Together 2021

My Workshops

Carefree Walking Foot Quilting (On Demand) – Sold Out
Carefree Free-Motion Quilting (On Demand) – Click here to register for DSMQ009

My Walking foot quilting class is completely sold out. However, as of this writing I still have room in my Carefree Free-Motion Quilting workshop. These classes are the next best thing to being live in person. They’ve been pre-recorded and you’ll have access to them the entire length of the show. That means you can view them on your schedule and then pause to do the “homework” given in each class.

There’s an “enhanced” option meaning that students have the option of meeting with me live online in a small group setting to get additional help on anything they need from in class.

I’m excited to be presenting my ever popular lecture “How Do I Quilt It” at QuiltCon Together. It will be shown on Sunday, February 21 at 5 PM Central Time. It also includes a Q&A live chat so that you can better understand the material presented. Through the magic of technology I’ll also be answering your questions live during the pre-recorded presentation.

My Quilts In the Show

I’m thrilled to have 2 quilts in the virtual show this year. The first one is a brand new design called “Pixie Stix” that in included in this year’s version of QuiltCon Magazine.

Pixe Stix is made from a fat quarter bundle of my Good Vibes low volume fabric plus the Bedazzled print in dark gray for the background and binding.

It was fun to design and make this quilt and there’s a bonus article in the magazine all about my design process and different versions I came up with until I settled on the final layout.

My other quilt in the show is called “Interlinked” which was patterned in Make Modern Magazine isue #34 last year. This is one of those “try, try again” situations. I actually submitted it to QuiltCon last year and it didn’t get in. But this year it did – so you just never know how things will turn out!

I’m currently in the process of updating the Interlinked pattern with more information and hope to release the PDF version along with some kits, soon. So be on the lookout for that in a few weeks!

    Hi Christa

    I am taking your machine quilting class at QuiltCon which I realize we can take anytime during the time that QuiltCon is on. I also signed up for when you speak with participants for this class but I have not yet been able to see what day and time that is scheduled. Would you mind telling me that? I would so appreciate it, I don’t want to miss it and also want to plan my life.

    Can you also tell me if we get only one chance to watch our class or can we view as many times as we wish? Just checking!

    I so appreciate your answers!

    Cheers, Anne Laidman

      Hi! I have 6 different sessions scheduled but I’m not sure who is in each one. You should be able to contact the folks at the Modern Quilt Guild directly. I assume they will or have emailed everyone their schedule. Let me know if you can’t get ahold of them and I’ll see what I can find out 🙂
