This episode is early, but I needed to get my QuiltCon experience on tape while it was still fresh! I’ve got a few pix to show you from the show, but if you want to see the vast array of quilts (other than mine), I recommend doing a search on Instagram for #QuiltCon2017. Believe me, you’ll see a lot of quilts! Okay, so first here’s me and Bauhaus Birds in the Air.

And here’s me with Modern Birds in the Air.

Here’s me and my old friend (and longtime listener) Ellen from Scotland!

And me with Andra from East Tennessee, who I also know through this podcast!

I had a great experience at QuiltCon and can’t wait to go again!

Here are two great QuitCon round-ups:

    Super-cool Cracker Barrel! Goop in your hair!!! Hahahaaaa!!! You make me laugh!! I loved your recap of QuiltCon, and I especially loved meeting you IRL (how the cool kids say, “In real life”). I am honored to have my picture with you here on your website!!

    I’m so glad I got to see both of your quilts in person. You did a fantastic job! I loved getting to sit down and chat with you. That’s always a highlight of these shows for me – getting to meet my online buddies in real life and chat like normal people 🙂

    LISTENED to the podcast between family stuff / phone calls … will relisten tonight. Loved the Thomas Knauer’s episode on WHILE SHE NAPS ( http://www.thomasknauersews.com/ ) .. .. (http://whileshenaps.com/category/the-podcast/episodes) # 89 ….YOU are right he is a stitch … it was a fun listen.

    LOVED all the pictures you posted of QUILT CON … sound like you had a blast.

    COULD you post the two newsletter links you mentioned? I found Abby’s but not the other one … I think I am spelling her name incorrectly.


    Hi Frances !
    I enjoyed your podcast very much ! I know you all had a great time at Quiltcon, but it was really entertaining to hear ‘all’ about it from you. Your quilts are amazing, and such an honour to have them accepted in such a great event. Loved your Birds in the Air book too !

    I had such a great weekend with you and can’t wait for Nashville! Confidentially, I’m not that neat – I was just trying to hide how messy I really am!

    P.S. I believe the word you were looking for is “lanyard.” 🙂

    Ahh, wish you could make it to Pasadena next year. But – I understand. It is a long plane ride away! Your recap was wonderful Frances. Thanks for taking the time to record your thoughts and experiences.

    I really enjoyed QuiltCon last year. I found it to be more of an experience – more than a show – than other quilt shows. I found it to be more about social connection than buying.
    I am having trouble with iTunes and will return!
