The Modern Quilt Guild has now formally introduced itself to the world--being that this was an inaugural event--showcasing what "modern" quilting is all about, and being a part of this phenomenon was truly amazing and inspirational.
Here is a glimpse of a few of the quilts that caught my eye.
To view more photos and read about the quilters and what inspired them, check them out on Flickr.com and type "QuiltCon" in the search box. The pictures and write-ups there are far superior and truly give them the justice they deserve.
Another highlight for me was meeting a few people I've met online. Alyssa Lichner from Pile O'Fabric, who is also a web designer by trade and the facilitator of the Skill Builder BOM (Block of the Month) online that is currently ongoing. I also participated in a pincushion swap with some members of the BOM while there, and I briefly met and chatted with Nicole Neblett, blogger of Mama Love Quilts, who entered a quilt (or two) and was recognized as well - go Nicole! Best of all, I got to get to know members from my Guild a little better and that made this event even more special.
Oh my, this week was a blast and with this being the first conference of its kind, I can only imagine what 2015's conference will offer. I'm already anticipating bigger and better--because we're a growing community sharing creativity! What else would there be to expect?
