QuiltCon Swag & February Stash Enhancement

I took 100 2" round stickers that featured a cropped in portion of my Cloudy Night Sky quilt with me to give away at QuiltCon, and I gave them all away while I was there! In exchange, I brought home all of these stickers! I also received 2 beaded bracelets, which were the new hot item for swapping. I was also...

People and Connections {QuiltCon 2024}

Yes, the quilts are a huge draw at QuiltCon, but for me, the main reason I attend Quilt Con is the opportunity to connect in person with other quilters. It's all about the people! A big part of my planning to attend QuitCon was spending time scheduling to meet with people for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and knowing when...

Best Machine Quilting Award {QuiltCon 2024}

My experience at QuiltCon this year was very different from any of my previous times at QuiltCon.

Meringue {Shipping to QuiltCon}

Happy New Year! I hope that you have had a nice entry into 2023. To help facilitate a sense of ease for myself, I took last week pretty slowly. Speaking of easing into 2023, there were a lot of linkups to the #2023PlanningParty on the last few days of the year. I've extended the length of the link up party...

Sesen Piecing Progress

Due to the number of mistakes I made in piecing the sample quilt for the Playful Partial Seams workshop, I'm definitely going slower and paying a lot more attention to my instructions as I'm working through piecing Sesen. The great thing about the start of the pattern is that it begins by making curve star blocks, which are easy...

QuiltCon Together

From my perspective there are many overwhelmingly positive things about QuiltCon Together. As I mentioned last week, I was thrilled to get to teach workshops in a format where students got to immediately learn more about their machines, and I've been blown away by the beautiful work that they have been creating. One big highlight for me was spending an...

QuiltCon Together Registration

The MQG decided in early May to pivot from a live conference to an all-virtual event for 2021, QuiltCon Together, in order to protect the health of attendees, staff, volunteers, faculty members, vendors, and more. As a member of the crew, I have to admit that I was simultaneously relieved at the early decision and gutted to miss out...
