QuiltCon 2015: Pieced with Love

I love that the “modern quilting” movement is rich in the traditions of charity. Not only did QuiltCon 2015 prominently feature all the quilts from their charity quilt challenge, but they also choose to highlight an online charity bee with the exhibition Pieced with Love: The Quilts of do. Good Stitches.

From the Modern Quilt Guild: ” Fueled by social media and emerging technology, the legacy of compassion, generosity and good will lives through the time-honored tradition of making quilts for those in need. Rachel Hauser, of Stitched in Color is the founding force behind do. Good Stitches {a Charity Bee}. She and hundreds of generous souls participating in this online community give back by doing something they love: modern quilting. This exhibit showcases a small selection of the nearly 200 quilts do. Good Stitches donates annually to organizations both near and far.”

QuiltCon Charity Quilts Part 1

Well, I am back from QuiltCon with enough shots¬†of quilts to last for weeks, and weeks it will take to process them and load them up. So hang on for a fun and inspiring ride. QuiltCon was great–REALLY enjoyed it personally and thought it was very well done and well organized. The excitement was palpable. This IS a movement.

If you don’t know what QuiltCon is, this was the second conference put on by the national Modern Quilt Guild, which included workshops, lectures, a huge exhibition and events, all for the modern quilter. The first two, this year and 2013, years ago were in Austin, Texas. Next year it will be in Pasadena, California, and 2017 will be in Savannah, Georgia.

Normally I curate exhibitions and only take photos of the quilts that really speak to me. In this case I took photos of all the quilts, partly because the majority of them I did like, and partly because I really think the modern quilt movement needs to be documented.

The first thing we all saw were the QuiltCon Charity quilts which were lining the ballrooms that were the site of all the keynotes and lectures throughout the conference. The charity quilt challenge required “Modern Quilt Guilds to work collaboratively to create quilts using a pre-determined color palette and alternate grid design work.” ¬†The quilts were twin size and were sewn entirely by each guild from design through finish quilting, and¬†will be donated by each guild to a children’s shelter in their area. The challenge was sponsored and fabric provided by Cherrywood, Pink Castle Fabrics, Rock Paper Scissors, Sew Modern and The Intrepid Thread.

The quilts were hanging uncredited which I do think is in the spirit of a charity challenge, but for this venue I am glad to credit the guild who created them. So if anyone contacts me or comments with the guild info, I would be glad to add the credit information. Inquiring minds might want to know! And please forgive some of the photos. It was hard to get an unobstructed view of some quilts to take a whole quilt shot and some photos turn out better than others. But rest assured all the quilts could be viewed quite well in person!

Over the next 4-6 weeks I will be posting all the rest of the quilts in the exhibition by category, so stay tuned!
