Quiltcon Part I

I had a great time this morning visiting Quiltcon in Austin Texas.  I saw many different kinds of quilts and loved to see what everyone's definition of "modern" is. I am going to share some of the quilts in several posts.  I loved walking around and visiting all the booths, more on that later.  Today, I am going to share some of my favorite quilts.

The first quilt is Mountains Managed, Made and Quilted by Kristy Daum.  It was part of the Maasai Mara Fabric Challenge.

The second place winner in the Maasai Mara Fabric challenge is Not Quite a Shadow. It was made by Susan Shore and Quilted by Jessica Sloan.

Rainbows were very popular.  I really loved this small quilt, Over the Rainbow. It was made and quilted by Janice Ryan.

If you live or frequent Austin, you may recognize the following building, the Frost Bank tower.  It was made and quilted by Claire Jain of Austin.

Chevrons were also very popular.  I saw it in fabric, pattern, and quilting.  This mini is called Papercut, and was made and quilted by Rebecca Roach.It is a reverse applique where the top layer was cut away to reveal the rainbow underneath.

I really liked the next quilt and the use of text prints.  The direction of the lines of text was just perfect.  The stars were also beautifully done.  It is called, A Light in the Dark, made and quilted by Elizabeth Dackson.

I was really drawn to the colors of, The Marriage of Orange and Pink, made and quilted by Leslie Schmidt.

Here is another rainbow quilt done in butterflies. It was named, Hope Takes Flight.  It was made by members of the Faith Circle of the do. Good Stitches bee: Debbie Jeske, Debbie Martin, Chrissy Lux, Jennifer Spencer, Alecia Sharp, Rachel Hauser, Des Mecham, Evelyn Wells, and Linda Sullivan. It was quilted by Melissa Richie.

I loved the boxes and scrappy nature of, A Very Long Conversation, made by Rossie Hutchinson and Quilted by Bernie Olszewski. 

And who couldn't use a scissor wall hanging in their studio?  Pointless was made and quilted by Laura Bisagna.

As for scrap quilts, I love this one.  I think it is a great way to use up scraps. Makin Me Crazy was made by Victoria Findlay Wolfe and quilted by Shelly Pagliai.

That is all for tonight, I will share more in a few days!
