QuiltCon Recap!

Howdy everyone! Over the past few days, Kimberly and the Fat Quarter Shop team ventured to one of the most anticipated events of the season, QUILTCON 2015, right here in our hometown of Austin, TX. We had so much fun meeting our FQS fans, bloggers, and amazing designers and we can't wait to share all of the fun pictures we took (and some amazing quilts as well) with all of you. So what are we waiting for, let's get started!

They're all gorgeous (ladies and quilts) but Shifting Inprrssions Iis my favourite by far. Thanks for all the info - it almost makes up for not being there!
