QuiltCon 2015 - My Quilts

Breathe at QuiltCon 2015

I have the best time at QuiltCon 2015, and while I decompress just a bit, I thought I would start telling you about it by showing off my quilts from the show.

There is Breathe. She won first place in the Minimalist Design Category. Thank you again to American Made Brand who sponsored this category and its prize.

You can see pictures of all the winning quilts on the Modern Quilt Guild Blog here. Breathe was also selected to be part of the MQG travelling quilt show for this year, another unexpected honour.

Breathe's beautiful ribbon

I truly did not expect to win any ribbons at this show. Every single quilt was a winner as far as I was concerned and I was just thrilled to participate. I am so honoured and proud that Breathe won this ribbon. The beautiful ribbons were hand made by Elizabeth Hartman from Oh, Fransson!

I confess to not taking that many photos at the show this year - I was just so busy looking at things and speaking with people. Here is a further away shot of Breathe, and to the right is my friend Nicole's (from Mama Love Quilts) stunning quilt Ascend which won second place in the same category.

Peace at QuiltCon 2015

Peace looked lovely hanging in the show. The MQG made the decisions about what category each quilt would show in, and they put Peace in the Piecing Category.

Cycles 2 at QuiltCon2015

And Cycles 2 was there too, after having been to the Houston International Quilt Festival in the MQG Exhibit. Cycles 2 was shown in the Use of Negative Space Category.

That's all I have for today, I will share more over the next few days. It was the best time, and I am already planning to attend next year too.
