Fat Quarter Shop Goes to QuiltCon - Giveaway Closed!

We spent the last weekend having a blast at the first inaugural QuiltCon. Lucky for us, it was in our own backyard so we didn't have to travel too far! QuiltCon, a conference celebrating modern quilting, was presented by the Modern Quilt Guild in Austin, Texas. The four-day conference consisted of a quilt show filled with vendor booths, lectures by industry leaders and workshops taught by creative and talented professionals in the quilting industry. Four days filled with modern quilty fun!

We posted a video recap of the event and added a bunch of photos from the show to Flickr and Facebook. Poke around, it will feel like you were there with us!
Welcome to QuiltCon!
The Moda Bake Shop booth.
Sweet treats at the Moda Bake Shop Booth.
The Moda Bake Shop booth, filled with yummy recipes.
The Robert Kaufman booth.
Bright quilts and eye catching bunting in the Robert Kaufman booth.
Kona Solid Hexagons in the crafting section of the Robert Kaufman booth.
Get cozy in the Michael Miller booth, filled with posh couches and snacks.
A photo-op in the Michael Miller booth.
Violet Craft, Christine Osmers and Debi Porrecca of Michael Miller Fabrics.
Making pillow cases in the American Patchwork and Quilting booth.
Jocelyn and the Rainbow Rocks quilt by Kathleen Baden.
Kimberly and the Broken Cogs quilt by Jacquie Gering.
Angela Yosten signing copies of Stop. Go. Quilt. Sew! in the Stash Books booth.
Denyse Schmidt signing copies of Modern Quilts Traditional Inspiration in the Stitch Lab booth.
Throughout the weekend, we saw inspiring quilts and heard lectures from the brightest minds in modern quilting. The show was filled with quilts, entered in different categories like Large Applique and Minimalist Design – Large Quilts, which we sponsored. Each quilt was well crafted and well designed.

The lectures all centered around modern quilting but highly varied in theme. From Quilt Guilds as Nonprofits to Publishing your Work in Magazines to All About Fabric Design, the lectures thoroughly covered all areas of modern quilting. The keynote, by Denyse Schmidt, followed her life and career and we left inspired. If you weren't able to attend the lectures, be sure to check out Craftsy's QuiltCon Lecture Series and watch the featured lectures for free!


The weekend left us filled with ideas and anxiously awaiting the next QuiltCon! Did you attend this year? What did you think of the conference? If not, will you attend the next event? Let us know in the comments below to win a bag of swag from the event! We are giving away a Robert Kaufman tote, five Andover charm packs and autographs from Amy and David Butler.

UPDATE: The bag of swag winner is This Dog's Mom! Please send your full shipping address to chelsey[at]fatquartershop[dot]com to claim your prize! Thanks for playing, everyone!

No, I couldn't attend this year ! IT would a dream for a chance to attend next year especially if the finances are set AND if I don't spend all of my mad quilt money on other creative projects like you just listed. Cheers!

Dee said...

It's great that there's a show geared towards modern quilting. And thanks for sharing pictures of the quilts! I really liked the 3rd place winner "Retro Modern Shapes". It's unlikely I'll get a chance to attend next year myself, but I enjoy looking through all the eye candy!

Mom on the Move! said...

I would love to attend QuiltCon and maybe one day I will - what a great dream to have. It looks like inspiration overload!

Debbie Weishaar said...

Looks like you had a blast from all the pics I saw posted from QuiltCon. I didn't attend due to distance as well as still learning. I would love to attend at some point and maybe it will be close enough to me one day to attend. Thanks for the chance to win a bag of swag from the event!

Laura C @ littleandlots said...

Oh, I badly wanted to go! I think it's such an important event, a big move for modern quilting/-ers. Maybe next year. I wish I could BUY a charm pack of the Pearl Bracelets like you are giving away! Maybe I will get lucky. :)

~Michelle~ said...

Wish I could have went, my birthday was on Saturday! But I didn't have any vacation from work left, I used it all up to spend the holidays at home with my now 8-month old!

Shirley in Canada said...

I so would love to be able to attend one of these!

Tammy said...

I didn't attend this year. Tha tis not in my budget to be able to go to these types of events. But I really do wish I could attend all of these. It looks like such an awesoem place to be with so many creative people & quilts and new products. conn_and_vans_mom(at)yahoo(dot)com

Susie Johnson said...

It is on my bucket list!

Kate said...

I did not attend but definitely would love to go next year if I can! It looked wonderful. Thanks for the chance to win!

Stephanie Farinelli said...

I attended, and it was very well organized and tons of fun! The quilts displayed were amazing to see in person after seeing some of them on blogs. My only disappointment was reading that it will only recur every other year. Fantastic!

Anne said...

How wonderful to attend! So much inspiration everywhere - thanks for sharing the pictures.

Kris said...

It would be a dream come true for me to attend such an event as QuiltCon! I would be in the quilters idea of Disney World!

Colleen said...

I did not attend in person but by Instagram! I really got the sense of a well run show that really catered to the individual quilter. The workshops looked amazing! I loved the personal touches like the ribbons, swag bags, photo booths etc that really reflected the fun creative and colorful side of modern quilters! I loved that front and center everywhere were the charity quilts that contained blocks from everywhere. I especially loved how one of my blocks literally hung over the head of every fabulous lecturer! I just wish I could have been there with my quilt. But the many pictures people posted of it let me see how wonderfully it was displayed. In a previous traditional quilt show my quilt was hanging 1/3 laying onthe floor! But thanks to instagram and some prolific and a little racy photog quilters I almost felt like I was there. I just need the swag!

Katie said...

I love all your pictures of the event :) I have never been to QuiltCon, but I'd love to go! I think it would be so inspiring to see everything

emmy said...

As I could not attend, I really enjoy seeing all the creativity of modern quilters.

Matt and Robyn Conners said...

I am drooling as I look at all of the pictures. Thanks for sharing, I look forward to seeing more. I would love to attend but living in California makes it kind of hard. One day :-/

Ramona said...

I wasn't able to attend due to the distance and my finances. I am hoping it will come closer some day and then maybe I can go. I sure have enjoyed on the pictures and comments on different blogs related to it.

donnatadkins said...

I did not get to attend. I teach first grade and so don't get to attend things like that, since they always seem to be when I am working. Maybe when I retire, I can go to the shows and attend my quilt guild meetings!

teachpany said...

I enjoyed the pictures and Craftsy's videos. I may want to go next year, but I'm more of a traditional quilter. It would be fun. 3241 seduwr

Patti said...

Great post and photos! I doubt that I would have the opportunity to go, but love seeing reports from those who were there!

Jennifer Lowe said...

I would love to be able to go to something like this. It's so hard to save up my money, though, when you have such cute things in your shop! I am really glad that Craftsy has put some of the lectures up for everyone to see. And I've loved seeing all the blog posts written since people have returned home.

Kelli said...

I got to go, but only to the show. Really wished I had taken a workshop or two though. It was my first quilt show/conference and I absolutely LOVED it! I cannot wait until 2015 when QuiltCon will be back!

B Greene said...

I did not get to attend, but I followed along on Twitter and Instgram. If I have a job (and therefore the extra $$$) in 2015, I won't be able to get off work (school schedule). If I don't have a job, then no $$$. What a vicious cycle :-(

Amy said...

Unfortunately I didn't get to g, but I got to sew a little this weekend. Hopefully the next one! Thanks for the great recap!!

molaliec said...

wish i could go, but college is too hard to skip out on

Sammie said...

I did attend. That was my retirement gift to myself. It was wonderful. I loved my classes, the lectures were great, the vendors well stocked, and the sponsors very generous. I hope to attend the next one, too. I'll have to figure out what my excuse will be.

Lisa said...

I did not get to go this year would love to be able to attend the next one. Thanks for the chance to win some swag!!

Anonymous said...

Some friends from my MQG got to go and I look forward to their reports. I hope to go some day. I would LOVE to win a prize! :) I am a new quilter, just one year, so getting new fabrics and toys would be great fun! :)

Marilyn said...

I was at QuiltCon and it was fabulous!!! Great workshops and lectures, demos and vendors---looking forward to the 2015 event!

Nannygrans said...

I would love to go, but I don't like flying and that would be a long drive from the San Francisco Bay Area.

Cindy said...

Would love to attend next year since this year timing was difficult. The photos you shared give us a "taste" of a wonderful event.

Melissa said...

I didn't make it this year - not enough vacation time... but everyone's pictures look amazing!! And I wish I'd at least entered a quilt - those prize ribbons are awesome. See you there in 2015 I hope!

Anna said...

One day!!
It is a very long way to fly from down here!

Margaret said...

I did not get to go this time around but would love to go next time!

Lisa in Port Hope said...

I am really getting into modern quilting, so I would really love to go to the next quiltcon! I've been eagerly reading the tidbits from my blogger list and cheering on those who entered quilts!

Awww, man, I couldn't go! And it's kinda rough with everyone rubbing it in about what a fab time they all had. :(

Debra Lee said...

I will probably never get to go but I appreciate all the coverage.

Lisa said...

I wasn't able to attend, but it looks like there was some awesome stuff there. Maybe next year...

Chelsie C said...

I missed it this year, with my two little ones and my husband in training, but I will definitely be marking it in my calender for next year as soon as I get the dates.

Fignie said...

I did not attend - but have been enjoying the blogs of people who did get to go.
I would LOVE to get there one year ... but alas, I think that'll take a whole lot of planning with my hubs to manage :)

Nanette said...

I went, and I loved it! It was such an inspiring weekend, and I met some great people. My husband, daughter, and I had enough frequent flyer miles for three round-trip tickets, so we turned it in to a family vacation.

Jo said...

I got to go! It was awesome seeing Tula Pink's "Gridlocked" in person! I loved the demos but wish I had signed up for lectures or workshops (decided to go last minute.)

Johanna said...

No, I couldn't attend. Thanks for sharing all the wonderful pictures! Someday I will be able to go on trips

I wasn't able to attend this year because of our 10 month old baby girl. I am hoping to attend next year, but will also have a new six month old at that time. I love Austin and I am so inspired by the pics you have posted. My family may have to kiss me goodbye as I get to working on new projects!

Heather B said...

I wasn't able to go but I feel like I was there! I was constantly on Instagram waiting for new #quiltcon pictures to come up from bloggers that I follow. I hope the next one is in Austin again because I will be going for sure! My husband has orders to Fort Hood (we are coming home Texas!) in August and Austin is only a 45 minute drive. I was so inspired by all of the pictures of the quilts I saw and I wish I could have been there to listen and learn from the lectures, meet some of my quilting idols, and meet ya'll! I seriously can't wait to get back to Texas!

halfstitched said...

Yes I did! In fact my sister is in one of the photos in this post! How fun. Can't wait till the next one!!!

Kate R said...

I didn't attend but would LOVE to. It's a long way from Australia but would be so very worth the trip!! I have just loved seeing so much of QuiltCon shared - thank goodness for blogs :)

Ali said...

I didn't get to go and but I haven't given up hope since my husband is kind of fond of Austin - if not, I do like to take solo road trips sometimes so I think Austin 2015 just might be a pipe dream worth having!

Thank you for the giveaway!

kristen elisabeth said...

I loved the Quiltcon! I have been to the Quilt Show in Houston the last few years and really loved the spin Austin has put on our own quilt show. Looking forward to it growing for years to come.

karen @ badlandsquilts said...

I did not attend the conference...the hard part is sometimes knowing your schedule so far ahead and being willing to miss important kid/school functions if they end up on the same day? I like some of the dates for the SewDowns, especially the ones at the beginning of the school year - not so many conflicts. Thanks for sharing all the photos.

Julie said...

I wasn't able to attend this year, maybe next.....we all have dreams! Thank for the chance.

goodmoodyogagirl said...

Looks le a great time. It is hard to budget for these trips when so much fabric is calling my name!! Maybe if it is close. I try to go to local quilt shows.

Ether Bourn said...

I did not attend this year but I would love to next year. I just started quilting in December. I didn't even know that modern quilting existed before I started the research for my new hobby. Now I am hooked. I have made three quilts and 5 mug rugs. I have been an occasional sewer since the 70s. Made a nine patch quilt top in traditional fabrics in the 90s but just didn't feel it and could never get the motivation to quilt it. Now that I found my style I can't stop sewing.

Katie said...

The pictures of quiltcon look fantastic. I would love to go sometime. Thanks for giving me a chance to win!

lynnquiltsalot said...

I wasn't able to attend, but so glad you brought QuiltCon to my doorstep. Thanks for the chance to win.

I'm in Australia, so it's a bit too far for me to attend in person, so I've had to attend virtually instead. Maybe one day......

Barbara @ Nähtante Quilts said...

I'd love to attend, but I did not this year because we don't have school holidays. I can only make it to QuiltCon if German school holidays fall together with QuiltCon week. Wish me luck for next year!

Jeanie said...

I wasn't able to attend, in fact, I've never attended a big quilt show, only smaller, local ones. Just looking at those delicious booths is overwhelming...it's making me drool! Thanks for sharing your adventure with those who couldn't make it!

Gertie Pye said...

I wish I could have gone and one day I will!! My favourite thing has been seeing all of the great quilt photos on various blogs and the fact that everyone who went has said what a great event it was. I have no idea how the judges choose a winner because all the quilts I have seen photos of have been beautiful x

Chiska said...

I didn't go, but I would love to. Reality is that it's probably a few more years before I possibly could.

I was lucky enough to attend and thought it was a great show - especially considering it was the first year. I am planning on attending the next one and hope to attend one of the SewDown's as well.

Patty said...

No I couldn't attend. Having to go to work got in the way! I would love to go sometime. Maybe I'll need to look into getting time off next year!

Did not go to Quiltcon, but I would love to go next year! It looks like such fun!

I did not go nor will I probably get there next year. Some us have to be armchair dreamers, right? I am loving the look of the new modern quilts and have embraced lots of clean white backgrounds and gray as neutral in my latest quilts.

I wasn't able to go this year due to a sick family member but already am planning for 2015 and can't wait!

I really enjoyed the pictures and lectures they posted on Craftsy.

I was not able to take time off to attend, but hopefully will be able to next year, wherever it is going to be held.

I was unable to attend; however, I wish I did. The photos look awesome! Hope to attend in the future.

Thank you for sharing the lovely pictures with us. It looks like it was so much fun. Sadly, I wasn't able to attend this year, but I hope to make it there next time. I've already been stalking the QuiltCon website for details on the next event....no postings on it yet.!

I was not able to attend Quilt Con this time but will definitely make every effort to attend the next one.

Karrie S said...

I would LOVE to go, but I won't be able to afford it for a couple more years. I can't wait to see your ideas!!

Angela Yeh said...

I didn't go this year, but maybe next year if the timing and location is right! I currently use these beautiful fabrics to make dresses and skirts for my daughters. I am hoping to take up quilting soon!

Marnie said...

I didn't attend but it looks like it would have been very inspiring!

I got to go on Sunday and it was wonderful. Really did not know what to expect but it was great! Love the whole thing. I am a traditional quilter but I loved looking at the quilts and brights! Made me look at things so much differently. So glad that I went! Did not get to make any lectures but loved the demos on the floor! A great Day! I would not have gone if I had not heard about it in one of your emails!

Since Texas isn't vey close to Wisconsin, I did not attend this year's QuiltCon - but I got a chance to see and be inspired by your pictures (and those posted on other blogs as well)! Thanks for the give away!

Sad to say, but I was not able to attend this Quiltcon. But maybe next year! Looks like a great place to be 'inspired'. And yes, I would Love to Win Swag! Thanks for the chance.

I wasn't able to attend this year--my sweetheart scheduled his shoulder replacement for the very same week, darn it--but I was just thinking that I should write it on next year's calendar in ink.

I didn't get to go, but it sure looks inspirational. Thanks for the chance.
