OOPS! - Two Times the Fun

We were so excited to send out the latest newsletter that we sent it out a day early. For those of you who missed it the first time, we are sending it again and adding a bit of Quiltcon goodness.
Quiltcon 2022 - Best of Show

2020 Vision was created by Hillary Goodwin, a healthcare worker who like many of us suffered through a very difficult year. The quilt is machine pieced, hand appliquéd, and hand quilted with, as she calls them, "monotonous 2020s" throughout the quilt, with the exception of one 2021.
A Quiltcon Quickie With Constance Griner
A Quick Interview About A Fun Quilt

How does a quilt get its name? We asked Constance Griner when we bumped into her in front of her quilt, Where's the Cheese?, at Quiltcon 2022. Thanks Constance.

Featured Quilt - "Half Of My Heart Is In Havana"

Tres Amigos - Havana Harmony by Kay Braunig Donges was featured at Houston 2021 and was inspired by Cuban paintings. On what specifically inspired her quilt, Kay says, "For years, I have been admiring some paintings of musicians hanging in our local Cuban restaurant. With permission, the three figures on the quilt are from these paintings done by the restaurant owner's mother. I designed the background from a public domain photograph of a street in Havana and had it printed by Spoonflower. The figures were appliquéd on after it was matchstick quilted."

The Quilt Show Puzzle: Look At The Amazing Graphics
"Graphics 1" by Kerri Green

Graphics 1 was one of the first quilts that Kerri did in a class with Nancy Crow. To her, the quilt reflected back to her just how much she loved graphics and how much she loves the graphic nature of color, shape, and design. And because she is a piecer, Kerri wanted to stretch her ability to piece the very sharp curves throughout the quilt after she was told that it couldn't be done.
