QuiltCon on Instagram and Flickr

February 20, 2013

quilt con

I’m just going to go ahead and assume that if you’re reading my blog today, then chances are you’re not at QuiltCon, and are at home lamenting that fact as I am.

What’s QuiltCon? Oh, it’s only the inaugural Modern Quilt Show and Conference, and biggest event ever for The Modern Quilt Guild movement yet! It’s happening in Austin Texas right now, and will incorporate a juried quilt show (with cash prizes), vendors, lectures and workshops  from top modern quilters, including Denyse Schmidt, Anna Maria Horner, Elizabeth Hartman, Malka Dubrowsky, Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr! I don’t know about you, but I’m DYING to be a fly on the wall.

So here is a list of some people you should be following onInstagram and Flickr to see all the behind the scenes goodness of what’s going on in Austin:

@bettycrockerass – (Flickr) Jen Carlton-Bailly, who blogs at Betty Crocker Ass. She’s an avid quilter/sewist who I’m fairly certain has a quilt or two in the show. She posted a shot of her official name tag which read: Social Media Manager for the Modern Quilt Guild. So far she’s posted all kinds of neat stuff from the setup of the trade and quilt show.

@elizabethagh – (Flickr) Elizabeth Hartman, an amazing quilter and author who blogs at Oh, Fransson! Her feed has featured the making of all the gorgeous patchwork award and participation ribbons and some early quilt display set up. She’s teaching two workshops: The Marmalade Quilt, and Free Motion Quilting on a Home Machine.

@kristafleck – (Flickr) Krista Fleckenstein, who blogs at Spotted Stones. She’s a very talented quilter and is attending with her baby girl in tow. I’m pretty sure she has a quilt or two on display at the show.

@lolablueocean – (Flickr) Krista Withers, who blogs at Krista Withers Quilting. She’s an amazing long arm quilter, I know several quilts at the show feature her work, and I love seeing the world through her eyes.

@annamariahorner – (Flickr) Anna Maria Horner, fabulous fabric and pattern designer we all know and love, who blogs at Anna Maria Horner. She’s also teaching two workshops at QuiltCon: Composing a Quilt, and Every Last Stitch.

@happy_zombie – (Flickr) Monica Solorio-Snow, another fun fabric designer who blogs at The Happy Zombie. I met her in Seattle last summer and omg I LOVE her! She’s heaps of fun and so is her ig feed.

@sewtakeahike – (Flickr) Penny Layman who blogs atSew Take a Hike. She’s a good friend and talented paper piecing designer who is teaching two workshops: Beginning Freezer Paper Piecing by Template, and Advanced Foundation Piecing – Designing Blocks. She hasn’t posted anything yet of her trip, but I’m sure that’s because she’s crazy busy getting prepped. I’m hoping she’ll post some paper piecing goodness though!

Edited : @fatquartershop is posting some fun stuff, as is @calamitykim!

Also the #quiltcon hashtag will hopefully make it onto everyone’s photos!
Just in case you’d like to also follow me on instagram, my handle is @artisania .
Have fun following along all the QuiltCon goodness! I know I will..
