QuiltCon

I'm back. It was absolutely everything I hoped it would be and more. I met friends for the first time in person, I made new friends, I learned, I created, I laughed, I danced...

I only took a few photos with my little point and shoot camera before it died (grr) and then I switched to my iPod touch (but they're on Instagram - my handle is felicityquilts - and I am trying to figure out how to retrieve them). There are a lot of great blog posts out there with photos of the quilts in the show (start with Leanne's and click through the links she has).

Which reminds me. BOTH of my little quilts won honourable mention ribbons. I was stunned to hear they'd been accepted to the show so I was in complete disbelief when I was told I'd won a prize. Then I learned that I'd won two ribbons. Pinch me!


I'll definitely be back with more but now I need to unpack and come down to earth!
