Amber and I just returned from warm and sunny, Savannah Georgia for the 4th QuiltCon! Quiltcon is hosted by the Modern Quilt Guild and includes lectures, workshops, a marketplace, and best of all - quilts. There are hundreds of modern quilts on display in various categories such as Improv, Applique, Modern Traditionalism, Patchwork, Handwork and more. We have a few blog posts coming in the next week about our trip which was packed with inspiring quilts, art, and workshops. First up, we'd like to show you some of our favorite quilts of Quiltcon...we hope you enjoy as much as we did!
Amber's twelve zodiac constellation quilt was in this show in the Minimalism category - it looked amazing!
