QuiltCon 2019 Award Ribbons
Hi friends, it’s that time of year again! The Modern Quilt Guild held QuiltCon this past week - QuiltCon is a worldwide quilt show, event, retreat and conference for modern quilters.
I had the honor of making the award ribbons this year - something I have been doing I think for the past 4 years? Has it been that long - oh goodness there are so many ribbons I think I have started to lose track.
First of all I want to give a HUGE thank you to all of the sponsors of QuiltCon that donated new fabric lines to add some fun to the first place awards this year: Cotton and Steel, Michael Miller Fabrics, Moda Fabrics, Figo Fabrics, Dear Stella Fabrics and Windham Fabrics. Also to Paintbrush Studio Fabrics for the Painter’s Palette Solids that were used across the board for the solid fabrics on all ribbons. They were a delight to work with and I am a new fan!
Before I go on I will say to the handful of you that have been asking for a pattern - yes - it’s ACTUALLY in the works this year! I just finished the step writeup and will work on photographing and taking videos of the tricky parts. Figuring out how to make a design that I loved making and also enjoy the look of was a bit tricky, but I am so happy with how they turned out and am excited to share that pattern with you all very soon.
