QuiltCon 2016: Improvisation, Part 1 of 2
Now we have the first installment of the Improvisation category from the exhibitions at QuiltCon 2016. In Pasadena this year, QuiltCon is put on by The Modern Quilt Guild. Though there is a large curated and juried exhibition, Quiltcon is also a conference with classes and workshops, lectures and events. Everything is great, but for me, the quilts are the highlight. Enjoy!

Here we have the first of 2 installments of the quilts from The Use of Negative Space category at QuiltCon 2015, sponsored by APQS. The winners of the category will be at the end of Part 2.
We just HAVE to start out with a quilt by Jacquie Gering, author of Quilting Modern, renowned teacher, on the board of The Modern Quilt Guild, QuiltCon organizer and just about everything. Besides, negative space in quilting is one of her trademarks. I admit, I’m a fan.
QuiltCon 2015: Piecing category, Part 1
We will cover the Piecing category, sponsored by Aurifil, in two parts since there are so many quilts. Remember that quilts for the QuiltCon competitions are accepted into the show first and then put into categories by the judges as part of the judging process. This group has so many interesting original compositions. The category winners will be shown at the end of Part 2 later this week.
