QuiltCon 2019 is around the corner! Remember this quilt? It was for @themqg QuiltCon a couple years ago. (designed by @lisacongdon pattern by @emptybobbin) I made it 3 times, 2 small and 1 large. This version is the first one I made as practice knowing the first time can be a mess but the 2nd time around is always easier. This one did come out full (too puffy) in the big rings. I finished this one anyway to practice the quilting. I quilted the grid on my longarm and the rings on my pink domestic. Hopefully I will get around to binding it some day, maybe it would be a good one to learn faced binding with. βž–βž–βž–πŸ’— #modernquilting #quiltcon

Chicken 16 patch quilt, added some borders to make a quick throw size πŸ“πŸ³πŸ’• #modernquilting

Binding βœ… This quilt is a linen/cotton canvas on top, cotton lawn on the back and cotton batting. The canvas side is durable but the lawn backing keeps it lightweight. Had enough of this old print @jwc.kcmo suggested as binding. Glad to finally finish this one. Hooray for small victories! βž–βž–βž–πŸ’— #quiltbinding #modernquilting

finally back at the studio today, warming back up with a simple small quilt βž–βž–βž–πŸ’™ #longarmquilting #modernquilting #hourglassquilt

vintage quilt book, Texas Quilts Texas Women, I just picked up at a local book store. The history is kinda glossy since it was written in the early 80s. Hilarious and heart warming to see them talk about yet another quilting revival in the 1980s and now that is history too. Look for a used copy if you’re interested. βž–βž–βž–πŸ’— #quilthistory #quiltbook #texashistory

Kuma called dibs. 😜 this essex cotton/linen blend has a nice weight to it and some are metallic. I pressed my short seams open which I usually don’t do, but with this thicker fabric is helpful. sharing some process pics βž–βž–βž–πŸ’— #quiltprocess #modernquilting #rainbowquilt

Earth tone rainbow in the works. Quilting is a choose your own adventure game. Change the colors, change the size, it’s up to you. βž–βž–βž–πŸ’— #modernquilting

Big Rainbow baby quilt! 12 fat quarters makes a ~50”x60” quilt. Super quick if you have made a quilt before or great beginner friendly pattern. βž–βž–βž–πŸ’— #freequiltpattern #rainbowquilt #modernquilt
