QuiltCon 2015 :: 7

This is the last QuiltCon post.  It's all about the one class that I took on the last day of the conference:  15 Minutes of Play with Victoria Findlay Wolfe.  Lastly are some shots out and about in Austin.  Enjoy!

15 Minutes of Play with Victoria Findlay Wolfe

Victoria's class was lots of fun and it was very nice to finally meet her!  She did a mini trunk show to start, including this polyester patchwork vest.

Best in Show, QuiltCon 2013

 Most of these quilts are in Victoria's second book, Double Wedding Rings: Traditions Made Modern

She did several demos.  The fabric was flying!

I went to class with no clear idea of what I'd do, but as soon as she showed how to use the Dresden Plate template I got an idea.  I "made" some fabric.

Then I cut it with the template and did the fancy (actually super easy) trick to make the points.

I got half the wedges sewn together in class, but I have a plan for the rest.  Will show it when I get a chance to try out my plan!

Out and About in Austin

Instagramming about Town!

It was good to get back home to blue skies and beautiful mountains!  I had a fantastic trip to Austin for QuiltCon and I hope I'll do it again someday.  In the meantime, I have my hotel reserved for Pasadena next year!
