QuiltCon 2017

Even if you didn't attend QuiltCon East in Savannah last weekend, if you've been on social media at all, you've seen alot of quilts from the show. It's been great, hasn't it? I've thoroughly enjoyed them all. And just for the sake of history, I'm posting two I had a hand in here on the blog.

First was my Yay or Nay, which hung in the show in the Improvisation category. This one has a pretty personal story, so it meant alot to me to have it included.

The second was Stephanie Ruyle's Direction Optional, a Bee Sewcial quilt, to which I contributed two blocks.

It was very exciting to have Stephanie's quilt win first place in the Group or Bee Quilts division! After having my Mod Mood - another Bee Sewcial quilt - win the same prize last year.... well it was pretty cool!

Anyway, thanks for humoring me. If you haven't seen the collection of winning quilts yet, do take a look! And on Instagram, see all sorts of quilts and good fun under #quiltcon2017 and #quiltcon.
