QuiltCon West 2016

Today is the big day! I’m headed to the West Coast for QuiltCon 2016. My day began at 3:00am this morning.  It was supposed to start at 6:00am but American Airlines called me yesterday to tell me they canceled my flight. After trying several different options that would get to me into Los Angeles before dark we finally settled on a 5:00am flight to Miami and a 6-hour layover. The joys of traveling.  Luckily I am typing this from the Miami International Airport which means I only have one more flight to catch to get to LA.  Yay!!

Landed in MIA at 6:00am this morning.

To follow the play by play of my trip and QuiltCon West 2016 be sure to check out my Instagram page.  I will try to do some recap posts of my days at QuiltCon and will definitely be posting lots of pics on my Facebook and Instagram pages.

If you are near Pasadena, CA come out to the show! I will spend most of my time in the Northcott Fabrics Booth #616.  So, come say hi and let’s snap a picture together! I’ll also be doing 3 different quilt demos for Northcott featuring 3 quilts I  made and am super proud of. I have been posting sneak peeks of them on Instagram over the last several weeks. In case you missed them here are a few of those pictures to show you the negative space quilting I did on them. If you like what you see stay tuned for full quilt pics from QuiltCon in the coming days! If you want to see them in person swing by Booth #616!
