I was extremely lucky to have 2 quilts on display at QuiltCon 2016: Triangle Transparency and Sunburst. I am looking forward to sharing more about Sunburst, but that post will have to wait for another day. My quilts arrived home safe and sound on Tuesday, and included were the description sheets and judging forms for each quilt.
Triangle Transparency hung in the Piecing category, which was sponsored by Aurifil.
Sunburst hung in the Minimalist Design Category.
One of the features of the quilt that has not been shared before but that you can see in the image above is the binding for the quilt. I really love that detail.
The minimalist design category was sponsored by Quiltmania.
Getting to see my quilts hanging in the show, next to so many other fabulous quilts and quilters that I admire was a wonderful experience. I don’t know if I will get quilts juried in again (hey, you never know!), so I tried to enjoy and savor the experience.
I am glad my quilts are home; time to consider what to do with them next!
In order to keep my QuiltCon wrap up posts from stretching out for a week, I am also going to present a few other details about the quilts and QuiltCon here. At the awards ceremony, prior to announcing the winning quilts, Jacquie Gering and the Modern Quilt Guild presented some statistics for QuiltCon 2016 that I found very interesting.
I was proud to be one of the 702 individual members attending the show.
I was at the awards ceremony to support my friend Renee @Quilts of a Feather. Her quilting work on the Albuquerque Modern Quilt Guild banner won the Best Machine Quilting, Frameless award (she quilts on her domestic Janome)! The award was sponsored by Babylock, and here is Renee up on stage as the audience got to cheer for her awesome accomplishment.
Of course I could not wait to photograph Renee next to her quilt, hanging front and center at the show! Also, check out the size of that ribbon! <3
Of course I had to get a photo of the two of them together!
Walking the show, it was a delight to recognize the hard work and beautiful efforts of so many of the online community. Instead of focusing on my favorites, I thought I would focus on the photos I was able to take of the artists with their quilts. <3
