Back from Quiltcon

Once again, Quiltcon was a lot of great energy in Austin!  I have been lucky to go twice for a day each time.  There are so many photos of the quilts on the Internet and Instagram, check here.

A highlight was meeting Alison Glass and getting a photo with her.  I sat in on one of her demos and enjoyed listening and practicing stitches.

Alison GlassAdam from Andover snagged me for a photo of my backpack for Instagram.  I was pretty happy!
