I'm so glad everyone enjoyed Wednesday's post about the Social Justice Quilts of Quiltcon 2019. Of course there were a ton of other, non-SJ related quilts that were so stunning and inspiring. The creativity and skill that went into all of the quilts is obvious. This is only a small sampling of the amazingness I saw - if you're able, I'd highly recommend attending a Quiltcon yourself one day so you can see all of the quilts in up close and in person. It is a truly magical experience.
There was a strong contingency of quilts from the Denver area. I was thrilled to look at a quilt's info sheet to learn that I knew the quilter or that it was a local person! These are a few of the quilts from our local quilters - nice work everyone!
Local Favorites from QuiltCon 2019
This next quilt was a charity quilt made by our very own Shawna Doering, Bob Bosscher, Amber Corcoran, Heather Beckman, and Carrie Illum. Everyone contributed blocks to the quilt and Shawna did the quilting. This group chooses to make improv blocks that included piecing less than 1". All of the charity quilts are made using the same colors (this one was made entirely from stash fabrics!) and this year's theme was "Small Piecing". Proceeds from the sale of this quilt will benefit Sage of the Rockies.
These remaining quilts are just a few more of the quilts I fell in love with last weekend in Nashville. Please enjoy and a huge thanks to the Modern Quilt Guild for putting on another great event!
