QuiltCon 2015: Bias Tape Challenge

The Bias Tape Applique Challenge, sponsored by Panasonic at QuiltCon 2015, was a cool idea and some great quilts resulted, as you will see. QuiltCon, if you are just tuning in, is a now-to-be-annual conference sponsored by The Modern Quilt Guild.

We will have coverage coming up of the piecing, minimalist and negative space categories.

Enjoy!

  1. Thank you for sharing my quilt, and for crediting me! Yes, the first two photos are of my quilt, “Shapes,” so thanks to the first commenter too! My last name is spelled “Hungerford.” I blog regularly about my quiltmaking, and domestic machine quilting, at FlourishingPalms.blogspot.

    • Thank you SO much Linda for correcting your name spelling! I’m always mortified I am making errors in my credits. I L.O.V.E. your quilt and it’s getting a lot of attention here and on pinterest! Congratulations!
