A bunch of us were lucky enough to attend QuiltCon last week in Pasadena. It was a great event, between the workshops, the quilt show, the lectures, and the wonderful exhibitors and vendors. We can't wait till Savannah in 2017!
We didn't all make it to the photo, but a few of us gathered in front of our charity challenge quilt which was hanging near the lecture hall doors.
The charity challenge was a group project led by Kristin Shields. Kristin wrote an improv feather tutorial, gathered blocks from guild members, and assembled the quilt top. Corni quilted it for us and as always knows the right thing to do to bring the quilt to life.

One of our members, Kristin Shields, had 4 quilts hanging at the show. Her Modern Improv Sampler won first place in the small quilts category. Congrats to Kristin!
