I found out today that my Vortex quilt was accept to QuiltCon 2018! QuiltCon is a large quilt show presented by The Modern Quilt Guild (MQG)Organization, and will be held in Pasadena in February. I am pretty excited! And I was already Registered to attend the conference somI get to see it in person….
I was wanting to blog about this quilt till I heard from MQG. I really thought it would be a QuiltCon reject post….😜
Anyways , here it is…..<<
tarted this quilt at QuiltCon 2017 in a class taught by Victoria Findlay Wolfe!<<
was a class on improve, but with structure! And I loved the class! I finished piecing the quilt at a retreat I was at in March. And I Quilted it this fall. It was on my frame for here weeks, and I worked at it pretty steady during those three weeks….
Here are a few close ups I took while quilting it….

ad so much fun coming up with different ways to quilt the same shapes! Too much fun!!! 😍😍😍
That is really terrific and congrats on the Quiltcon acceptance.
Beautiful work! I wondered if you ditch your whole quilt first?
No I ditch the area I can reach in one pass. Then I quilt that area. Then I advance and ditch the next pass, etc. I do not like to,ditch the whole quilt first because as it rolls up with only ditching it gets wrinkles in the top…..
