I got back from QuiltCon a little over a week ago and I thought I would share with you a little bit about my trip. I’m going to do part 1 today and then I will show you the books I bought, some of the QuiltCon swag and the projects I worked on in more detail later this week!
QuiltCon was in Austin Texas and my Mom is a quilter too so we went together! It was fun to get to see her since she lives in Virginia, I don’t get to see her as much.
Here we are before the Moda Party…
The Moda party was held on that Thursday night. They rented out The Mohawk, a trendy bar downtown for quilters to get crazy LOL!
It was super fun to get to meet Vanessa Wilson aka the Crafty Gemini! She was so nice, we got to talk YouTube and the online sewing biz 😉
I also got to see my friend Sarah aka Blueprint Textiles. I met here when I lived in Hawaii! She has longarmed a few things for me and we were in the Oahu Modern Quilt Guild together. She’s also an army wife, so it was fun to catch up with her!
I also got to meet the lovely ladies of the Fat Quarter Shop! They came and found me at the Moda Party. It was so great to meet them in person since we email all the time! They sponsor my blog and are huge supporters of the online quilting community.
Here’s a better photos of my Kelly Moore bag… I’m a little obsessed. It was great to travel with and kept my laptop and nice camera safe while I was traveling. I love that it looks chic and more like a purse than an industrial camera bag style.
I also did a little YouTube video recap video, so here it is! Are you going to be at QuiltCon West in Pasadena CA next year? It’s only about 45 minutes from me, so I will be there!
