Quiltcon 2022 – Part 1

Quiltcon, the convention dedicated to Modern Quilts, was held in Phoenix (Arizona) this year and I had the chance to attend it again. It is my favorite quilt show not only for the unique quilts, the ambiant enthusiasm and the lectures (I attended eight !), but for the positive and friendly atmosphere that makes it so special. So I am going to start this recap by sharing the work of my friends. Quiltcon, la convention dédiée aux Modern Quilts, a eu lieu cette année à Phoenix (Arizona) et j’ai eu la chance d’y participer à nouveau. C’est mon exposition favorite… +

Second Quilting Retreat

I had the opportunity to attend two quilting retreats this past October! One at the beginning of the month with my friends of Patchmania group and the second one organized by the Patchwork du Léman, in St-Maurice (Switzerland). I really enjoyed spending time with old friends and got to know better the other attendees.Again I chose to work on small projects, mixing piecing and appliqué. J’ai eu l’occasion de participer deux fois à des vacances patchwork au mois d’octobre ! La première au début du mois avec mes amies du groupe Patchmania et la deuxième organisée par le Patchwork du… +

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 ?!

Mais bien que j’aie pris cette fois de l’homéopathie pour prévenir les effets du décalage horaire, je n’ai toujours pas totalement récupéré … Est-ce que c’est juste moi ?! Mais en tout cas le voyage en valait la peine 🙂 Small quilts category I already shared several… +

Quiltcon 2020 – Part 1

Hey! I am back from my trip to Quiltcon that was held in Austin – Texas this year. Not totally recovered from all the excitement of the show and jetlag. I feel a little less like a zombie today anyway … Quiltcon is a great show but most importantly a place where you can catch up with friends. I had three quilts in the show and my LOVE quilt was the perfect backdrop for a photo shoot with my friends Kathy, Sarah, Marla and Sophie. Hé! Je suis de retour de mon voyage à Quiltcon qui avait lieu cette année… +
