If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I’ve been in the US for a nearly month-long holiday leading up to QuiltCon in Savannah, Georgia. Outrageously large unicorn tote in tow, I headed down from North Carolina with Swampy to see some quilts and friends! I don’t want to have a really long post (though I didn’t take many photos at all!) so I’m splitting this up into a post for the exhibition and a post for friends and the class I took.
The first day, Thursday, we leisurely explored the exhibit hall to see all the quilts. I only took pictures of a couple because I guess I’m very particular? I enjoyed many of the award winning quilts (there is certainly no doubt Bling was the Best in Show), but there’s plenty of photos of those floating around so I’ve chosen not to include them here. (P.S. I used a new camera to take these pictures so if they look especially bad it’s because I don’t know what I’m doing with it yet!) (more…)
You may recall, last week I put out my free borders pattern for the Mercury Burst block, and I was having issues making it turn out the size I wanted… I kid you not, I had a dream about how to fix it. So I have fixed it! I also noticed a silly mistake, so I’ve fixed that as well.
I have updated the original post accordingly. Apologies to those of you who have downloaded the pattern already, but it is free so pick up an improved copy here! If you still don’t have Mercury Burst, get a copy here.
Here are some photos from New Quilts for Alberton Beds, which closed on Sunday. There were many more quilts there but it was very challenging to take photos in the historic house as it is quite dark! See more (remarkably better) photos on Monday Modern’s Flickr page.
