I enjoyed visiting the Quiltcon 2019 and glad that I went with friends. Very colorful. Interestingly enough I have a colorful quilt on the wall… and in the building stages. Not sure it would qualify as ‘modern’ though! There will be a total of 8 fabrics in my bright combo. Picked them out January 24th to use for a demo of the Quilters Select Rulers.

Are you a member of the Modern Quilt Guild? They have Groups in most metro areas. Here is a link to the Modern Quilt Guild https://www.themodernquiltguild.com/ and the membership page if you are interested in a group near you https://community.themodernquiltguild.com/guild_locator. No groups in Kentucky, but I was a member of the Chicagoland one… around 2009 and then I moved.

Quiltcon Nashville 2019

Cascade Quilt from Quiltcon Nashville

As promised some pictures from Quiltcon Nashville.

There were lots of very interesting quilts; some visually stimulating, some left us scratching our heads, and some very loud statements. Almost all of them were interesting in some way- form, color, quilting or pattern. While Quiltcon tries to be different, getting photographs was difficult. Aisles were a bit to narrow to accommodate all the visitors and taking pictures too. Below are a few that caught my eye. The photos go in order of the whole or most of the quilt, detail if I got one, and the quilt tag as posted at the show.

There are still more intriguing quilts from Quiltcon Nashville 2019… but WordPress likes to do its own thing with photographs… and I dont‘ want to bore you with too many pictures at once. (I think you can click on any image for a larger view). I will post more over the next few days. Do any of these strike a chord with you?

MIA – Quiltcon, Quilters Day Out and Family

ROYGBIV threads

Yes I have been Missing in Action… seems to be all or nothing. Since the last post it has been Go Go Go!

Quiltcon

With it being just a couple of hours away, I had to fit it in. Filled up the car, both the gas tank and the seats with some quilty friends and left at 8:30 am… stopped for breakfast on the way and arrived just as it opened on Thursday morning. Since we change from EST to CST we gain an hour going down and lose an hour coming home.


This was our parking space at Quiltcon. So we didn’t have to remember I always take a picture… We saw some awe-inspiring quilts and some ‘huh’ quilts, but I think you see some of that at every show. Visited with some new vendors, very refreshing! Photos of some favorite quilts next post.

Closer to Home

Friday was setting up a booth at the Louisville, KY Gathering of the Guilds and Quilters Day Out. Louisville has lots of quilt guilds. I think more than any metro area I have ever lived in. Saturday was the DAY and from 9 am until 3 pm, it was fun! And then take it all down and home again.

So Sunday was get it all back in place. Nuff said!

Monday on the road again

Monday was off to Indianapolis for a little family. This little one turned 1. Just abot a year ago, found me baby sitting her in a hospital room while mom recovered.

At Home Again

And then the rest of the week was picking up all the things let go for the going and going and going! Guild meetings, vet visits, groceries, you know regular mundane things that go with living. I did manage to play with some threads, but can’t show much of that as it is still in the planning stages… but soon I hope.
