First Quilt Show

I got my Refection mini-quilt back from a quilt exhibition. It was the first time I had a quilt displayed in a show. And it was a special one, the first one organized by The Modern Quilt Guild: QuiltCon. I hesitated on submitting a quilt. But, members of our guild (Montreal branch of the MQG) encouraged me to do so. I’m really glad I did. It was great to be part of QuiltCon is some way. And overall, I received some really great comments from the judges. It is great to know that one of my quilts was displayed next so many amazing and unique quilts. Soon, The Modern Quilt Guild will put pictures of all quilts in the exhibitions on their website. Check it out! In the meantime, you can find the top three winners of the quilt show here, on The Modern Quilt Guild blog. Christa from Christa Quilts! also wrote 3 posts on all the winners of QuiltCon (part 1,part 2 and part 3).

Jennifer, one of our guild members, was there and was kind enough to take some pictures of my quilt. Thanks Jen!


She also took some pictures of the charity quilts that were made with blocks from the QuiltCon Challenge. Here is mine in one of the quilts:


My reflection mini-quilt has come back in a freshly painted room. I’m happy to see it back. I was missing the view I have from it from our ground-floor! Jen said that people at the exhibition found it pretty funny to ear the story behind it, about me choosing the colors to match the bathroom. She will probably laugh when she’ll read this.
