Day one of QuiltCon opened with a bang — crowds assembled long before 10 a.m., and attendees clamored to be the first to glimpse the award-winning quilts and attend their demos, lectures, workshops and more. Here’s a glimpse of the beautiful show floor on QuiltCon Day 1.
Our Best in Show winner, Kathy York with her masterful “i Quilt.”
Demos were popular on the show floor today — this crowd gathered to see Beth Rowan of Rock Paper Scissors talk about “Sew Many Substrates.”
The Cotton + Steel booth was buzzing with attendees making headbands, pincushions and buttons.
