Quiltcon 2016 Mini-Recap

This was the first time we did a vendor booth at Quiltcon.  We’ve always been sponsors, but this was a first and we were a little bit nervous!

There was so much prep to be done but we finally got the camper all packed up to go!IMG_0125

Our bestie Liz @stitchplease came to help!  It felt like old times! (SNIFF!)


Set-up was hard, as you can see.  I got a little too into the power tools.


Lisa @lisaalexakis and Liz putting together shelves to hold some Kona Cottons!

Hmmm…an omen on the bathroom door.


Set up done!


Look at that cool Michelle Engel Bencsko from Cloud 9 fabrics in her barkcloth jacket! Gimme!


We were so wonderfully busy that we barely got to leave the booth! I got out for minute and saw SO MANY AMAZING QUILTS! Check out all the category winners HERE.

This one is by Casey York and it’s called Shards.


This pastel beauty is by Chawne Kimber.


This mini is called Bzzzzzz and it’s by Sheri Cifaldi-Morrill, and you can buy the pattern HERE!

Mr. Bones Winner!

Screen Shot 2015-08-03 at 9.29.16 AM

The winner of the Mr. Bones panel is Beth who said:

“One of my favorite cousins moved to France, where Halloween is apparently not a big holiday.  That makes no difference to my cousin, who continues to celebrate Halloween as her very favorite holiday, with decorations that seem to multiply every year.  It could be that I contribute to this condition…which is what I’ll do if I win Mr. Bones, aka Monsieur Bones.”
