QuiltCon 2019 :: Baconrific & Loosely Connected

There's something inexplicable and extraordinary about seeing your work hanging in a show, and not surprising, having Baconrific hang at QuiltCon this year made me very happy.

Getting a photo with my Bee Sewcial bee mates was definitely a QuiltCon highlight.

One thing I love when I have a quilt in a show is noticing its neighbors. It just so happened that Baconrific was hung next in line with the winning Group or Bee Quilts. That's the Third Place winner Group Therapy by Jane Cole to its left.

And further left, were the First and Second Place winners, Overlapped by Alisa Kutsel, and Micro in Macro by Tanya Munro. Facing us were quilts in the Minimalist category, and shown below is Graphiti by Marah Light.

Further down were (l-r): Colonnade and Lilium, both by Heather Black; and Egg Travel by Susan Borger.

And then just around the corner was Flight Path by Jess Frost.

As you can see, Baconrific was in excellent company!

As for Loosely Connected, I think I laughed out loud when I rounded the corner and saw it for the first time. It's tiny! But at 11" square, it was not the smallest quilt in the Small Quilts category!

It just arrived home yesterday, and I thought you might like to see the Judges' comments.... a few kudos on design elements and they liked my thread choice. ;-) I'll take it.

If you'd like to see the entire Small Quilts category, I shared them on Instagram here, here, and here. Enjoy!


  1. It was so much fun to see you AND your quilts at Quiltcon!

  2. The small quilts category was really inspiring this year. It's amazing what can get packed into a tiny finish and the attention to detail the makers take!

  3. I like very much how you took pictures of your quilts with their neighbours. It gives interesting views of the show!
    It looks like there were more very small quilts this year compared to Savannah.

  4. I was happy to see both of these quilts and yes, they were in good company! Your photos of the 'neighbors' is a brilliant take on sharing!

  5. It was an amazing show and these two quilts were some of my favorites, well you already know how much I like Baconrific ;) Thank you for sharing your judges notes!!

  6. I can truely believe that it is a sureal feeling to walk up to your own quilts at Quilt Con. Enjoy!

    PS: Thanks for the "not so close up" pictures. I loved seeing how the show was set up.

  7. I loved seeing the textures of Baconrific up close.
