Whether people were surprised or not, The Quilt Design Coloring Workbookwas a runaway smash hit at QuiltCon. The bookseller that attended and hosted a book signing literally ran out of books during the book signing - they were all sold (that's why Thomas had to give me his own personal copy)!
Two years ago I had a quilt accepted into QuiltCon 2016 in Austin, Texas. I booked a hotel, a plane ticket, and classes. I told everyone I was coming. I was so excited! And then something came up - a family event. Something I simply couldn't miss. It was heartbreaking. I had to cancel everything. I promised myself that the next time I had a chance to attend QuiltCon I would.
Look at this beautiful mess of color and texture... It's QuiltCon 2017! QuiltCon is the major event for the Modern Quilt Guild. It used to be every other year, but it is now annual. I don't have a guild nearby, so I'm an Individual Member. :)
You voted for me to sew my own version of this tote and I did. Then a bunch of you asked me to add a zipper. I was hesitant. I was like, really? That's more work and it will ruin the shape of the bag. But it didn't ruin anything!
