Quiltcon Collaborations

 I'm still processing Quiltcon 2023 over here! I had a wonderful time in Atlanta. One of the highlights for me was spending a good bit of time with my Quilts Unscripted bee mates. We had three beautiful quilts representing our bee in the show. 

This is Time by Carole Lyles Shaw

I love seeing how each of us represented time in our blocks! 

Elizabeth Ray had Sashes hanging in the show...

again, wonderful representation of each bee member!

And my Darkest Before Dawn hung right next to Sashes...

But wait! Are those ribbons I see?? Yes indeed! Elizabeth won first place in the group category for Sashes and I followed up with second in the same category! Elizabeth also quilted my quilt so there was lots of overlap. I'm so delighted for her! Well deserved!

Here's most of our group celebrating together:

Let me tell you, collaborating with this group means everything to me! So much quilty wisdom in these and the other members of our bee. And kindness. My heart is so full!

Happy to have my quilt back home (just in time to hang at the Dallas show this weekend!) and this beautiful ribbon made by Jessica (@maeberrysquare)

Yay for Quilts Unscripted! So great to have three of your quilts showing AND for the ribbons. Your group is doing such great work together!

It was so much fun to hang out with all of you and a real treat to get to see the completed quilts in person. Congratulations on your ribbon!
