Here's a series of random QuiltCon photos for Really Random Thursday:
Form & Fabric gave away the cleverest project pouches.
|Holy Sh!t Balls pouch|
This particular pouch was in high demand!
|Bee block on a bag|
Kristy's pouch sported a mini version of February's MCM Bee block. Cindy, I haven't forgotten about you....my block is going in the mail tomorrow.
|Anne's two quilts|
Anne, who is in our MCM Bee, had two quilts hanging in the show. Aren't they gorgeous? Rhythm and Blues won 3rd Place in the Large Negative Space category.
Love the blue walls of Craftsy's booth as well as their modern/retro TV.
|Spin the wheel|
Each time I walked by the Spoonflower booth, there was a long line waiting to spin the wheel. As you can see, everyone is a winner. I won a Cut & Sew Pattern.
|Take Me Home|
Janome was offering a steal of a deal to convention goers on their demo machines. I enjoyed sewing on the fancy Horizon machine, but I resisted the temptation to take one home.
|Freezer paper piecing|
Here is a sample of what I made in Penny's freezer paper piecing class. I can't wait to try this teapot pattern again with my complete fabric stash to choose from.
|Teeny tiny pieces|
I wasn't quite as successful with the paper piecing project. Those pieces are tiny!!!
|Paper Piecing - failure then success|
Can you see my mistake in the left picture? After some unsewing and resewing, problem solved.
I enjoyed Lizzy's Mini Quilts class. Her enthusiasm is contagious.
|Mini quilt for my mini quilt|
I had high hopes for my mini quilt at the start, but in the end couldn't replicate my vision on fabric. After learning from my mistakes, I plan to try again.
|Elizabeth's Marmalade quilt|
I took half day classes with Elizabeth and Jacquie to learn to make these two quilts - Marmalade and Machine Pieced Hexagons.
|Jacquie's Hexie quilt|
Once I unpack, I'll take pictures of the progress made in class.
|Austin Children's Shelter|
Various local guilds made quilts for the Austin Children's Shelter from QuiltCon challenge blocks.
|My challenge block|
I took pictures of all the donation quilts hanging in the lecture hall and found one of my challenge blocks....couldn't find the other....must be on the back.
There were so many gorgeous quilts on display. Check out QuiltCon's Flickr page to see more quilts.
Thanks for stopping by,
