Hello, hello! I’m back from a wonderful weekend at QuiltCon. I saw a ton of amazing quilts, listened to talks (some of which are now posted for free on Craftsy), learned how to block print on fabric, ate yummy barbecue, listened to live music, and got to catch up with one of my oldest and dearest friends, who drove down to Austin from Dallas for the weekend. In other words, my soul was fed.
I drew so much inspiration from the quilts in the show that I’m going to split my comments up into two posts to avoid photo overload.
The winner of “Best in Show” was this quilt by Victoria Findlay Wolfe, called “Double Edged LOVE.” I love the color combinations and the sense of a traditional quilt motif that has been fractured, giving a glimpse into something urban and a little wild.
This quilt by Mary Marcotte, called “Reflections in Gray,” used a similar idea. It had an amazing visual impact from a distance.
