I submitted two quilts for QuiltCon, the EZ Triangle Quilt Challenge and the Michael Miller Glitz Challenge. Neither were accepted, but I learn some great lessons in the process. Let me share my finished Triangle Quilt, the lessons will be below.
I really had fun quilting this one, as you can see, and I plan to put more effort into the quilting phase of things from now on. Here are some more pictures:
I was lucky enough to sneak 2 days of QuiltCon into a worktrip, and I was so inspired and overwhelmed. In Kim Eichier-Messmer’s Modern Color Theory class, she relayed that it takes many tries to master a skill and to make something amazing. While creating, you might make tons of ugly or marginal quilts, to eventually find your sweet spot, your style and flow. I am not there yet, but will keep working. So I am reminded of a thought that I had when getting into quilting, that no matter how it looks, at least it’ll keep you warm. With that, I encourage you to try something new or outside of your comfort zone, and I will do the same!
