There were so many wonderful quilts on display -- I didn't attempt to capture them all. If there are any errors in my attributions, please let me know and I will correct them.

I'll probably enjoy next year's Quiltcon from afar, but I am looking forward to Nashville!


  1. Thank you for taking the time to show all these quilts for "the rest of us." Even though I like quilt shows, I often find them overwhelming (overcome by great art--I know there's a word for it), so this is a good alternative way for me to view wonderful quilts.

  2. I have really enjoyed your Quilt Con posts. Thank you from Australia!

  3. Thank you Ben, your photos are fabulous and show so much detail. This is a wonderful collection of posts for those of us who couldn't make it to QuiltCon. So much talent!
