QuiltCon - the winning quilts, part 1

Shattered - Honourable Mention

I am going to share with you the photos I took of the winning quilts at quilt show at QuiltCon 2013. I am not sure I got them all, and I am going to put them up here in more than one part.

Each quilt in this show was wonderful, I am so glad I was not a judge - but it is fun to celebrate the stunning winners.

And if one of these is your quilt and you would rather I did not show it off, just comment or email me (shecanquilt [at] gmail [dot] com) and I will take the photo down.

That one up there is mine, Shattered, Honourable Mention, Use of Negative Space, Small Quilts.
