I got to go to QuiltCon ! Yippee !
I had been looking soooo forward to it....woke up Friday morning at 3:00 am....
sore throat, feeling rather crappy ! Going anyhow !
2 car loads of us drove to Leander, Texas and got on the Austin MetroRail to downtown.
It dropped us off right in the door of the Austin Convention Center.
My first time to ever ride a train !....To my first ever modern quilt show !
I'll just show you a couple of my favorite quilts. QuiltCon quilts will probably be posted all over the internet for a while so you'll get to see what was there without me showing you all of my pictures.
Lost and Found in Translation by Victoria Findlay Wolfe
It was probably my favorite of all. I sat in on one of her lectures about curved piecing and learned several tips that make it easy. I missed her new book signing (waiting to be seated at a Mexican restaurant) so I'll have to order one, not because I have plans to make a double wedding ring any time soon, I just really like her style.
Loved this one !
I found the owner of this quilt while reading blogs: The Quilting Edge
Face #1 by Melissa Avenrinos
It won a Judge's choice ribbon.
My friend Angela and I with sweet Jenny.
Riding the train back to Leander. I was ready to go home.
Next quilt show....Dallas Quilt Celebration !
I'll be there Friday, March 13th.
Be blessed today.
