QuiltCon: 2015

 DSC04240

QuiltCon was back in Austin this weekend! For the past four days, our Convention Center was home to quilting-related workshops, lectures, and vendor displays, as well as a juried quilt show. Presented by The Modern Quilt Guild, QuiltCon is the biggest modern (vs. traditional) quilting show in the world.

I bought a $10 day pass and spent several hours there on Friday. I’m not a quilter myself, only a great admirer of these works of art. I apologize for inundating you with pictures, but these were just a few of my favorites from this year’s show…
