Quiltcon 2015 Recap

Quiltcon 2015 Recap

We had such a blast at Quiltcon earlier this month in Austin, Texas!  Jenny and Natalie were there with our new ModBLOCK Magazine and there was such an amazing display of textile art that would’ve just blown you away!

We had so much fun seeing so many of the industry’s amazing powerhouses, like Victoria Findlay Wolfe, Vanessa Vargas Wilson (Crafty Gemini), Lynne Hagmeier, Cindy and Jina from Riley Blake Designs and so many more!!  We would’ve loved to get photos with everyone! 🙂



We were amazed by all of the beautiful quilts on display!  Here are a few of our favorites:

One of the best things about a convention like this is that Jenny gets to see so many of the people who watch her tutorials on YouTube.  She loves getting to sign books and just visit with all of you who seek her out.

While there, Amy Ellis, fabric designer and ModBLOCK Contributor, interviewed Jenny and included it in her podcast, Quiltcast, so go have a listen!

Thank you to all of you who made it such an amazing experience for us!  We can’t wait until next year!!

**Next year’s Quiltcon will be in Pasadena, California and you can find all the information at quiltconwest.com.

    Jenny, I heard your presentation at QuiltCon in Austin and was captivated by your easy techniques for some blocks that I have spent years trying to perfect! Just one of your tips was worth the $10 ticket. You go girl! Love your tutorials and that you do it for free. Thank you. I am now a loyal fan.

    Will Jenny be at the Chantilly Virginia quilt show this May?

  • Thank you so much, Vicky! I’m so glad you’re finding the tutorials useful! Thank you for the kind words!! 🙂
