QuiltCon Recap: Day 1

While I cannot get there in person, this post from MCG is the next best thing!

The Modern Quilt Guild

Day one of QuiltCon opened with a bang — crowds assembled long before 10 a.m., and attendees clamored to be the first to glimpse the award-winning quilts and attend their demos, lectures, workshops and more. Here’s a glimpse of the beautiful show floor on QuiltCon Day 1.

  1. I saw these on the Modern Quilt Guild blog, but noticed today that the “Modern Mojo” quilt looks like a different color to me today (green). I checked back on the other blog and I see green there again, but the other day I saw off white. Kind of like that blue and black dress I guess, although I thought that dress was blue and brown.
