Adventures in QuiltCon 2020, Austin, Texas.
Did you go to QuiltCon 2020 in Austin, Texas? I’m back, and I thought I’d share a little bit from the adventure.
On the show floor, it was definitely an honor to have placed 2nd in the Modern Traditionalism category for my Arlo quilt.
On the last day, I managed to walk the entire show–a delight! With a free afternoon, my priorities were to see all of the quilts, and if I had extra time, to check out the vendors too. I managed to pull off both. Win, win.
Two other quilts of mine hung in the show, Hearts and Eads Jetty. There was something special about the show layout, and it created a pleasant experience walking the aisles. I was very pleased with how all of the quilts related to their quilty neighbors. Debbie Grifka (@debbiegrifka) is my Hearts neighbor above and Stephanie Schroer (@stepschr) is my Eads Jetty neighbor below.
In the Soak booth, I spotted an original print from Architextures and my Pineapple Grove Flatter scent. They had an interactive thing going on where you could press a block and add it to their design wall.
My Everglade quilt was in the Superbuzzy booth as well.
How about I stop there for now? I can do a second post with other quilts and show stuff. If you were at QuiltCon 2020 in Austin, what were some of your highlights? Or, if you were watching from afar, what did you think?
Thank you to anyone who took my classes, commented on my posts, posted pictures of my quilts or said hi in person.
++ I did manage to save a few special totes from the show. Make sure you’re subscribed to my newsletter, because I’ll announce there first when/how to get one.
