QuiltCon 2015 – The Weekend, Part Deux

Sunday was the last day of QuiltCon 2015.   First day all week, I could actually get into Starbucks at the hotel without being 50th in line.   It was a cold windy walk over to the Convention Center and I noticed it just wasn’t as busy anywhere.

My class on Sunday was with Victoria Findlay Wolfe and entitled “15 MInutes of Play.”

15 Miuntes of Play

The class was superb and since I follow VFW’s blog and her FB feed, I really knew what to expect.    My new friend Donna Lee from Central Illinois, with whom I began the week in the class with Katy Jones, was once again my table mate.  We also shared a table with another new friend, Liz Hoyland, from Melbourne Australia.

We spent the first hour making fabric from our scraps only to “Cut it Up” our new catch phrase from class.    We then took a little break to have an up close and personal trunk show with Victoria.   She started by modeling her polyester patchwork jacket.

The centers of her improv hexies are english paper pieced misfit blocks Victoria picked up in her travels.   Amazing what she did with them.

Being a farm girl, Victoria vowed she would never make a cow quilt…

Finally, here’s a photo of Victoria’s design wall of blocks.

Here’s the class design wall and Victoria posted a photo of the middle panel with my little hexie flower on her blog.  Woo Hoo!!!

QuiltCon was a blast and it was sad to peek through the show doors after class to see the vendor booths being packed up and dismantled.   So looking forward to QuiltCon 2017 in Savannah, Georgia.

The MQG held a Leadership Conference for guild officers on Monday and it was an informative day with insightful presentations in the general session and then breakout sessions  covering, Sponsorship, Programs, Legal, and Sewlebrities.

Well, that’s it for my report of QuiltCon 2015.  Hoped you enjoyed reading about the event and viewing the photos of these fabulous quilts.

Time to get ready of our guild meeting this Saturday,  February 28th.
