There were so many fantastic quilts at QuiltCon- it is so hard to choose which ones to post up for you to see.  And believe me there is no rhyme or reason to which quilts I post- so many different styles of quilting, so many different fabrics, so many talented quilters etc.

So there are my favourite quilts from the show- what do you think of them? I loved this quilt show compared to the traditional quilt shows as the quilts were so new and fresh and no two were the same.  Seeing something so different was inspiring!


Please let me know if I have any names spelled incorrectly or the names of the quilts in the wrong category, it was hard to read the photo of the cards hanging with the quilts.  I will correct ASAP!

    Kristyn, I totally agree about the quilting on Moving Target. It’s fabulous. Thanks so much for posting the pics. I’d love to get to that show one day.

      I am surprised that stalking you on the show floor, I didn’t have a photo with you in it off to the side! Looking at some blogs, I noticed there were quilts I didn’t think I had seen. So next time I either need to take more time at the show and not miss anything, or take a photo of each and every quilt so I don’t miss anything.
