Looking back at QuiltCon

In case you missed our pictures on Facebook and Instagram, here's a quick tour of our booth at QuiltCon. 

We showcased Shannon Brinkley's Dryad collection, as well as our Painter's Palette Solids collection. In addition to showing off quilts and small projects made from these lines, we also had samples--we know how much quilters like to touch fabric! 

One showstopper in the booth was our Painter's Palette Solids. As we invited people into our booth to spin our wheel for prizes, we had them feel the solids. They thought they were just going to feel another piece of cotton, as any other...but then they would stop and their entire demeanor would change as they began to pet the fabric. "This is REALLY NICE" was a quote we heard over and over! (We think so too! If you haven't been introduced to our solids yet, ask for them at your local quilt shop.)

A sample quilt--"Focus"--by Elizabeth Eastmond made with our Painter's Palette Solids. 

 Shannon's "Drifting Leaves" quilt, made with a snack pack. You can download the free pattern for this quilt here.

Shannon and her Dryad fabrics were a huge hit in our booth. Many people already knew her and had her "Scrappy Bits Applique" book. They loved her free demo!

Mini quilts made using Shannon's scrappy bits applique technique using Painter's Palette and Dryad fabrics.

It was a great show...lots of fun and excitement for seasoned quilters as 
well as new quilters and friends of quilters who didn't even sew! It seemed like everyone had a great time, and we had so much fun meeting people and introducing them to our company and new products.
