QuiltCon

I've been gone 


It turns out Savannah is 2 hours from Cori's new place


I started playing with idea when I read that


then Cori took off Friday and Monday so we could run the streets together.


How could I resist? It meant driving all day and getting up the next morning for that 2 hour drive


Completely worth it!








The free motion quilting just blew me away


And this was the best part, seeing these in person







Wholecloth! I spent a lot of time just staring at this one. 



Because I went on Thursday I missed seeing some of the "names" that were there, but that's O.K. the quilts left me in awe. I'm home and exhausted, hoping to not drive again for at least a day. 

Debbie did try to tempt with another show in Florida, but by time I hit Daytona Beach it was pedal to the metal heading for home. 

Later Gators,
Dana

  1. Someone likes Tula Pink and Angela Walters. I have seen most of these (thru posts) but not the black and white piece - that is striking.

  2. Wow, wow, wow. I'm inspired. I need to come back to soak it all in. So happy you were able to attend QuiltCon East. I suspect you are still saturated with soaking it all in. Love all the quilts you shared, but today the Elephant just makes me smile.

  3. I do think you got inspired! The modern venture touched a nerve in you and took you for a fast ride:) Very glad you went and had the chance to see some of these up close. I'm an Angela fan too.
