A Peek at QuiltCon East in Savannah!


Look at this beautiful mess of color and texture… It’s QuiltCon 2017! QuiltCon is the major event for the Modern Quilt Guild. It used to be every other year, but it is now annual. I don’t have a guild nearby, so I’m an Individual Member. 🙂

And they picked beautiful Savannah, Georgia for the venue this year. I had never been here before and it is absolutely a dream! The food is delicious, the people are friendly, and the architecture in downtown Savannah is amazing – I wish I had time for a tour.

But I’m spending most of my time with the quilty people over at the International Trade and Convention Center. If you are following me on Instagram or Facebook, you will have seen bunches of quilts and fun people that I’ve run into. The quilt above by Katherine Jones was awarded best in show – and it’s simply stunning. Go to my Instagram page to see the whole thing. Do you see the basket tote that I just sewed (get the free pattern here)?

If you are at QuiltCon too and you see me, be sure to say hi! I’d love to meet anyone who reads my blog. I leave early Sunday morning, so don’t wait until it’s over. Once I get home and have a chance to write more about it I will – I’m having so much fun and have so much to tell you about!

Oh, and Stephanie of Modern Sewciety grabbed my friend Sarah and I to interview first in this facebook live video, lol!

So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
