What a fun weekend it was! I spent the weekend at Quiltcon in Austin, TX. Thank you, hubby, for letting me go.
So many talented quilters. This one won the best of show. “i Quilt” by Kathy York, Austin Modern Quilt Guild. She didn’t even make a pattern to create it.
My personal favorite was from the special exhibit, “The Quilts of Gee’s Bend.” Unfortunately, I did not capture the name of the quilter. My phone camera does not do justice. Gee’s Bend is a small community in Alabama. A group of women have been making quilts since the 19th century.
Their choice of colors and sense of design were just amazing. They didn’t take any design or composition classes. It came natural to them. The sense of beauty they have in them is breath-taking. Made me wonder what is my own inner sense of beauty?
Here’re are some more photos. Enjoy.
