QuiltCon 2015 Registration!

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!


  1. Wow - that is awesome that you got into the classes you wanted. My registration process was hampered by a glitch (the link sent to me only allowed me to register for the show and vendor hall only for the first hour, bummer!). I am registered for several lectures and I hope to see you there!

  2. I debated between Playing with Values and the curved piecing class on Thursday and decided on curved piecing. I am so looking forward to going!

  3. you know I am SO jealous! I know you'll have a great time, and be sure to have some Rudy's and Chuy's for me!

  4. Sounds like a great schedule! I'm taking Patchwork City with Elizabeth Hartman and Creative Quilting with Jacquie Gering. I hope to volunteer a bit as well if they open up more volunteer spaces in the fall. I went last time and I agree, meeting online quilting friends is the best!

  5. Oh I am so envious. It all sounds great. Quilts, shopping, workshops and meeting up with friends sounds like an ideal way to spend a few days.

  6. Hi Janet, I am participating in the hop. I posted on June 4, and I will be attending Quilt Con too. One of my first choice classes was Playing with Value with Cheryl Arkison. I didn't get the link until 11:30 AM EST, which was a glitch in the system. So I am on the waiting list for that class. I'm looking forward to attending, and I look forward to meeting you in person. I will stop by your blog on July 9. I love the way you've photographed your quilts on those fences.

  7. Oh hurray we are taking Dot to Dot quilting together!! :-D
