#quiltcon

#TBT to one of my first Instagram posts - I learnt about IG from a friend who invited me to join in on the @calmqg charity quilt for Quiltcon 2015. That's when I first heard of @themqg and this was my first traditional quilt block! IE having to follow a pattern as I just did improv.
It seems I even bent the rules on this one when I look at my colour placement and I had no idea that that was @tulapink on the border. It was in my stash. I've just always loved it!

#IGQuiltFest Day 21: Quilting Up Close...these are practice pieces that I made in @christaquilts domestic free motion quilting classes at #quiltcon. The most important lesson learned is that it's about moving out of your comfort zone and letting go of perfection. It might be time to put on my big girl pants again and give it a whirl on my next quilt...😬. #igquiltfest #perfectlyimperfectquilter

It's been a few weeks since #quiltcon and I've been munching on the idea of a super minimalist quilt. This is tough for me because I tend to dump everything and the kitchen sink into my quilts, but I'm trying! This is step one and my goal is a peaceful oceanscape quilt. I think one more Dresden Plate and a big sunshine and it will be ready to quilt. What do you think? Ever tried minimalist quilting?

#igquiltfest Day 21: I'm lucky that @alobsiger is just down the road from me - I love her quilting and am lucky to add it to my own #quilts. For today's close-up quilting prompt, here's my favorite style from Amy on a baby quilt (featuring some #edemberley for #cloud9fabrics fat quarters that I picked up at #QuiltCon 2015), I made for the kids' guest room in our house.

This quilt by @cauchycomplete is inspired by "a political blunder by Missouri congressman Todd Akin who insists that pregnancy due to 'legitimate rape' is impossible." This is really striking, @cauchycomplete. Thank you for this.
