Hello! Today's post includes quilts from four categories: Handwork, Small Quilts, Group or Bee Quilts, and Minimalist Design. Remember, these are all clickable to see more detail. Also, remember this is my take on the show and I don't have photos of every quilt. Please alert me if you notice that I've made a mistake on the attributions. Enjoy!

As I said in the last post, Marion was my traveling partner. This quilt was made as a test sample for The Improv Handbook for Modern Quiltersby Sherri Lynn Wood. Marion's quilt made it into the book too! It was listed as not for sale at QuiltCon, but someone really wanted it and Marion did end up selling it. Congratulations Marion!

In Wedowee was a quilt that I couldn't wait to see in person. I've been following Chawne's blog and Instagram for quite a while. I was also hoping to meet her in person, but was so sad when she was too sick to make the trip. This quilt got my vote for People's Choice. Of course, I love the improv piecing, but it's even more special for the incredible hand quilting! Congratulations Chawne!
