The Modern Quilt Guild’s QuiltCon 2013 is over after an impressive four days of classes, lectures, exhibitions, demonstrations, workshops, give-aways, and more. All of you who followed my QuiltCon journey on Facebook got a sneak peek of the event. Back in Chicago I cannot stop looking at the great quilts on my camera!
Watch for Kaffe Fassett and Liza Prior Lucy’s latest book, Shots and Strips, due to be released in late February.
