I am so excited to be at QuiltCon!
We are in Nashville this year… I love the exciting cities they pick for us to visit! I am with two of my quilt besties. I love a good quilty road trip!
It is such a huge show! You definitely need a few days to soak it all in.
First stop for us was a couple of lectures…. Building Your Quilt Practice and Free Motion Impact. Building Your Quilt Practice was not what we thought it was about, but turned out to be surprisingly inspirational. It focused more on how you practice your craft. How to make time, how to find what you love and what you don’t, and how to make your quilting your own. My favorite quote from the lecture was….
The first thing we hit after the lectures was the VENDORS! We just couldn’t wait to get our hands on some fabric. They have so much to look at we could barely make it through the first day…. we definitely saved some booths to go back to again.
Here is what I scored the first day…
Ahhhh…… in love<3
I got some great deals! 6.00 a yard and fat quarters for around 2.00. I definitely had to restrain myself!!! I also got some cork because I’m dying to try it on a zipper pouch.
Tomorrow we will check out all the rest of the show quilts and hit up some local quilt shops… Can’t wait.
Keep it Sassy♥
