If you're on Instagram, you've probably seen a lot of photos with the #helloquiltcon hashtag lately. Selfies are so not my thing, but I couldn't resist this time!
So 8 months after that hectic morning of registration, it's finally time to GO to QuiltCon! I'm all ready with new moo cards and pins to swap.
And to some degree, I'll be traveling handmade. You know, the requisite new bag, the purse of course, my favorite Zakka messenger bag, my fresh patchwork-covered sketch book, my snugly cased Kindle, and of course a myriad of handmade bags and pouches. That all should keep me fabric-happy while away from my sewing machine, eh?

Yeah, my schedule's pretty full! I have a few meet-ups scheduled, and then there's the Moda Party and the Noodlehead meet-up too. It's going to be a very full few days!
I'll have two quilts at QuiltCon - Fissures will be hanging in the show, and Red Hots will be in the Pinwheels booth along with other Oakshott projects.
And lastly, if you want to peek in on the action, there will be lots posted on Instagram I'm sure. Watch hashtags #quiltcon, #quiltcon2015, #quiltconpinswap, and the more personal #debandrachdoquiltcon that my daughter Rachel/Snippets of Sweetness and I will be using while we are there. I'm hoping to blog a bit, but internet accessibility, time, and energy will determine that for sure.
So....does it sound exciting? Yes! Does it sound overwhelming? Yes! Off we go!
