QuiltCon 2015: Small Quilts category

Now we have the Small Quilts category from the exhibitions from QuiltCon 2015, sponsored by Pinwheels.  The award winners are at the end of the post.  We are almost done with all the major QuiltCon 2015 categories. It is bit sad to move on from what has been an dizzying display of original quilts. However the next QuiltCon is less the a year away and this time it will be in Pasadena, California.

So enjoy the last few posts and we have a ton of other things cueing up to cover after all of this.

Enjoy spring!
