QuiltCon Nashville Wrap-Up

Well, I successfully made it through the week of post-QuiltCon fog (guys, it is a real thing!!!) and I think I can finally write a wrap-up post with a clear head!

I escaped the winter storms in my area to head south to rainy, rainy Nashville for QuiltCon! While I was there, I taught five workshops to awesome bunches of stitchers! Here are some of my highlights and lots of links so that you can feel like you were there, even if you weren’t!


Thursday began with two classes. First up are my students with their Geometric Feathers.

(Geometric Feathers pattern available here.)

Thursday night was my late night group of Crazy Quilters! I was super excited to be teaching this class for the first time. I think we all agreed that we could have used several more hours to stitch!!

Friday was an all-day class of Collage Embroidery. This is one of my favorite classes to teach because at the end of the day, each student has created something completely one-of-a-kind! I love to see each individual’s creativity come through in their appliquéd design!

I get asked all the time which hoop is my favorite and I think i’ve finally settled on this one! Made from The Ghastlies fabric by Alexander Henry, I think this snarky little lady puts into facial appearances the side of us that we all try to hide!!! Especially if someone uses our fabric scissors to cut paper!

This hoop seems to be the favorite of my new designs. You can find the pattern for this Steampunk Bee in my latest book here.

At lunchtime on Friday, I made my way to the Lucky Spool booth for a book signing. Here I am with my fabulous editor, Susanne Woods!

(If you missed out on my books, you can find them here.)

Before teaching on Saturday, I made my way to Craft South! It was super crowded but such a creative and inspiring spot! I mean, just look at all of that thread!

One of my favorite QuiltCon purchases was this Daylight Company clip-on lamp. Oh, and lots and lots of Eleganza thread!

We stitched some more Feathers on Saturday night!

Then bright and early Sunday morning for my final class, we filled the room with our Color Wheels!

(This is one of my best selling patterns and you can find it here.)

I wish I could say that I had lots of time to walk the quilts, but I didn’t. However, these three caught my eye every time I walked past:

QuiltCon was over in a flash but it was just so much fun! Thank you to each and every one of my students! I loved meeting all of you and having you in my classes!

If you missed taking any of my classes in person, don’t forget that you can still learn Boho Embroidery! Check out my embroidery class on Bluprint: Boho Style: Mixed-Media Embroidery!

And P.S…I quietly unveiled my new youtube channel to my students in my classes. I’ll be sharing it with all of you SOON! This is something i’ve been wanting to do for awhile and after be asked (very politely!) by so many of you for stitching videos, I’m finally putting them together! I’ll share here when it’s ready for the unveiling!!

Until then, happy stitching!

If you’ve ever wanted to take one of my workshops but I haven’t come to your area, this class is the next best thing!

I can’t wait to hear how you like these projects!!

Happy stitching!
