QuiltCon: Quilt Show {Part I}

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.

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)

      Thank you. It’s obviously that analytical side of my mind trying to process the creative stimuli the conference provided. I found this helped me process everything I saw. I am sure more will be processed in the upcoming days.
