I had the delight of attending QuiltCon last week. It was an amazing experience (as always). I was lucky enough to have a quilt in the show (San Francisco Bustle, QoM). My room-mate, Laura, made me a matching bag. How cute is that!! I love it.
Over a couple of posts, I want to share with you all some of the quilts and trends I saw at the show. Let’s start with a common trend of QuiltCons past, which continued in this show. Here are some of my favorite quilts made with mostly solid fabrics.
Splinter, Daniela O’Connell (@blockmquilts)
Terrace, Violet Craft (@violetcraft)
Chomp, Jacquie Gering (@jacquietps)
Sirkel, Daisy Aschehoug (@warmfolk)
Bending Petal, Karen Lee (@quiltaposy)

Neighbor, Melanie Tuazon (@melintheattic)
Nests and Vessels #1: The House Protects the Dreamers, Leslie Tucker Jenison (@leslietuckerjenison)
Rhythm of the Rails, Kristen Shields (@kristenshields)
This year, one of the trends I loved was the inclusion of more texture. I think it added more interest and dimensionality to the quilts. If only you could touch them.
(Note: there is no handling of the quilts allowed, without white gloves to protect the quilts)
