I'm so excited about QuiltCon! I registered this morning and I'm really looking forward it.
There were so many classes to choose from, and I had a really tough time deciding. I took some of the advice I received from other quilters who attended QuiltCon in the past to not over book myself, and I'm happy with my selections. The two classes I chose are "Playing With Value" with Cheryl Arkison and "Dot to Dot Quilting" with Angela Walters. "Playing With Value" will help me better understand the color value of fabrics and how better to pair them. "Dot to Dot Quilting" will help me broaden my quilting techniques and help me move away from the walking foot when appropriate to better accomplish my vision in my quilting. These classes for me are about growth and better understanding of techniques. I can't wait to learn!
I'm also a super volunteer and will be helping set up Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday and Friday are class days. Saturday and Sunday are free days to roam (and spend more money than I should).
I use to live in Austin for 8 years. Four of those years were spent as a student at the University of Texas and the other 4 were spent as a teacher. Any free time away from the conference will be spent with family, friends, and favorite hangouts from my past.
Are you going to QuiltCon? If you are, what does your schedule look like? I can't wait to meet so many wonderful online quilting friends!
