QuiltCon East is coming soon and I hope you get a chance to attend. Angela Walters will be the keynote speaker and there is a special exhibit of many of her quilts, as well as quilts by Tula Pink, Emily Cier, Jacquie Gering, Alexandra Ledgerwood, Cherri House, and more.
At QuiltCon West, this past February, I was thoroughly impressed with the quilts and vendors and I’m confident that attendees of QuiltCon East will be so too!
Here is a quilt that caught my attention for design and free-motion quilting:
#IAMONBOARD was designed and made by Allison Chambers, of San Antonio, Texas.
Artist Description for this quilt: “I have always loved the traditional quilt block. I modernized it by blowing it up to an 18″ x 24” block. The boat floats on half-square triangle waves against a large expanse of a sky. The popularity of Saturday Night Live’s video short “I’m on a boat” featuring Andy Samberg and the resulting Instagram hashtag is the inspiration for the title of this quilt. I used Chambrey to add texture to the water and Jessica created a design for the quilting that mimics clouds and wind for the sky and the churning waves and sea foam bubbles of the ocean.
