Mod Quilt Con Review

KT Winner

I'm a couple days late after being iced in at the Dallas airport, but the blog goes on!
Congratulations this week to :
Aggiequilter - Just goes to show that your patterns look great in all colors ! Would love to win Loose Change. Enjoy Austin and QuiltCon, wish I was going but life intervenes ... 

 Mod Quilt Con

What an eye opener! So many intriguing designs and ideas and colors - Oh my! After spending 3 days with quilters from all over the country with a variety of tastes and talents, it was obvious that no matter the fabric or technique, quilters are quilters wherever you go. I met so many delightful ladies and shared my layered patchwork technique. Whether it's KT or brights or anything in between, it all works beautifully. Many of the ladies knew KT, some were even big fans, some had never heard of us. No matter, the passion for creating and joy of quilting bonds us together. I was expecting a younger crowd, but was pleasantly surprised by the many mother/daughter duos roaming the show floor looking for new ideas. Also, alot of quilters who loved brights, but lived with KT colors. I'd say that's a great compromise! Here are a few highlights from my trip to Austin.

Jen Kingwell, Moda designer, hanging out in the Moda booth playing games (literally!). Love her scrappy, eclectic look!


Here are a couple of pictures proving I really was working while at Mod Quilt Con. I demonstrated our new KT Wedge and Melon Templates in the Modern Cotton booth (Quilt Haus owner & designer, Deanne Moore). Shown here - Clara's Garden in KT fabrics and Seedlings Runner started in V & Co's Color Theory by Moda. I love her new graded color Jr. Jelly Roll strips - too fun! It's the perfect partner for her bright prints.

Our trip was full of new sights and smells as we ate and shopped our way through Austin. One evening, Robert and I enjoyed live music at Bangar's brew pub and sausage house. Their menu boasted over 50 beers and 30 sausages. Really. I had chicken, spinach & sun-dried tomato sausage that was soooo yummy!

And of course, we had to spend some quality time with our friends, Jenny & Ron Doan of Missouri Star Quilt Co. Jenny was in Austin promoting MSQC and their cool new Mod Block magazine. I wonder how many photos were taken of her with quilters??? We're plotting and planning lots of fun on the two cruises we're teaching together next year in January and April. Go to Cruisin' with Jenny & Lynne for more information. 

For this week's giveaway, a Color Theory charm pack and Jr. Jelly Roll (20 strips). It's a whole lot of spring cheer in a little package. Comment here to win!
