So, I'm going to Quilt Con tomorrow!
It's only an hour away,
so WHY NOT?
CraftyDaughter is humoring her mom once again
and taking the day off
to accompany me.
How lucky am I?
Bless her heart! It's either nature or quilting.
The poor girl doesn't have a chance!
I'm not a modern quilter
by any stretch of the imagination,
so it will be fun to
broaden my horizons
and get a few lessons in thinking outside the box.
The above picture is my whole modern quilting repertoire!
A wonderful cushion top designed by
and published last fall in
the Quilter's Connection magazine for Candadian quilters.
(Yeah, it's still hanging on the wall
waiting to be turned into a pllow!
It seems to me that
Modern Quilting is as much about the FMQ magic
that has been performed on these unique quilts
as the quilt pattern designs themselves.
New to FMQ, I am looking forward to observing this art form
up close and personal.
There's no telling
who I'll meet!
I'm pretty excited!
