Quiltcon 2020 – Part 2

I am unpacked now and almost in my everyday routine. But though this time I took homeopathic medicine to prevent jetlag I still haven’t totally recovered … Is it just me ?! Anyway the trip was worth it 🙂

Mes valises sont dĂ©faites maintenant et je suis presque revenue Ă  ma routine habituelle. Mais bien que j’aie pris cette fois de l’homĂ©opathie pour prĂ©venir les effets du dĂ©calage horaire, je n’ai toujours pas totalement rĂ©cupĂ©rĂ© … Est-ce que c’est juste moi ?! Mais en tout cas le voyage en valait la peine 🙂

Charity Quilts

This year theme was Text. Each quilt had to include at least one word and text had to be a central element in the composition. The colour palette to be used was shades of gray, white, and black.
My favourite in this category was Everyone be kind! made by the German Modern Quilters. I was pleased to hear that my blogging friend Melanie was involved in the making 🙂

Le thème de cette année était Text. Chaque quilt devait inclure au moins un mot et le texte devait être un élément principal dans la composition. La palette de couleurs à utiliser était les nuances de gris, blanc et noir.
Mon prĂ©fĂ©rĂ© dans cette catĂ©gorie Ă©tait Everyone be kind! rĂ©alisĂ© par les German Modern Quilters. J’ai Ă©tĂ© ravie d’apprendre que mon amie blogueuse Melanie avait participĂ© Ă  la rĂ©alisation 🙂

Youth category

I love this Improv design! Broken to Built by Logan Jacobson won the first prize in the Youth Quilts category. It was made out of old cloths. Logan mentioned that she did the piecing all by herself and quilted it on a longarm. Her mother just helped for pinning.

J’adore ce design Impro ! Broken to Built par Logan Jacobson a reçu le premier prix dans la catĂ©gorie “jeune”. Il est rĂ©alisĂ© Ă  partir de vieux vĂŞtements. Logan mentionne qu’elle l’a assemblĂ© toute seule et quiltĂ© sur une longarm. Sa maman l’a juste aidĂ©e pour l’Ă©pinglage.

Untitled 2-2019 by Carson Converse @carsonconverse won the first prize in this category. She used different thread colours for the quilting to add an additional pattern to the Drunkard’s Path blocks. Unfortunately the picture doesn’t do it justice. It was really beautiful in person!

Untitled 2-2019 de Carson Converse @carsonconverse a reçu le premier prix dans cette catĂ©gorie. Elle a utilisĂ© diffĂ©rentes couleurs de fils pour le quilting pour ajouter un motif supplĂ©mentaire aux blocs Drunkard’s Path (chemin de l’ivrogne). Malheureusement la photo ne lui rend pas justice. Il Ă©tait vraiment magnifique en vrai !

  1. Merci, Sophie, pour toutes ces photos. Tous les quilts me plaisent, mais j’ai cependant une prĂ©fĂ©rence pour le dernier – Arlo Quilt – : je n’aurai pas cru qu’il Ă©tait possible de faire quelque chose d’aussi moderne avec des hexagones !

  2. I enjoy seeing these quilts again. Thank you for posting! Isn't it interesting that you chose different quilts to share than I did in my blog post? Well, we sure have plenty of favorites to choose from, don't we?

    I can see that your camera takes great pictures! My Canon point-and-shoot camera "died" after taking only two pictures at QC. I was crushed, and forced to use my iPhone for photos. My pictures aren't nearly as good as yours. But, I'm happy to say that my new camera (another Canon) is due to arrive tomorrow! I'm so excited, and looking forward to posting beautiful pictures again. Like yours.

  3. Thanks for including our charity quilt! I loved a lot of the quilts you've choosen. It was so hard to pick only ten for my blog post – I guess you had the same "problem". So thanks for showing a few of the others I didn't highlight. So many great works of art to choose from. PS: And no, you are not the only one, I am also still working on getting back to normal 🙂
