Quilt con Winning Quilts

A brand-new quilt conference has started up in Austin, Texas: Quilt.con. This show has some elements of art quilts, some of simple scrappy quilting -- and a whole lot of Pinterest influence.


Some of the winning quilts are here, including the Viewer's Choice:

Overgrown by Alison Glass - quilted by Lisa Cipes


One of the winners in the Minimalist Design category:

2 + 2 by Collen Wooton. Gee, I like this piece.

And a beauty from the Use of Negative Space category:

Broken Diamonds by Kati Spencer


Some traditional influences, sure, but there's a refreshing clean look and line to these pieces. Beautiful.

For more on the show, including Quilt.con's sponsor, the Modern Quilt Guild, go here.

I thought this quite interesting... I teach students how to do this with watercolors, but have never had much success with crayons.  ...
