My Opinion On.........


Fellow quilters that we discovered at the Newark Airport!


Jacquie Gering-Amazing inspirational creator & speaker.
I could listen to her all day.

Luke Haynes-I really never understood what a creative mind he has until listening to him speak.
It really is amazing to hear how his mind thinks. When I went back on the show floor and saw his quilts again, I looked at them in a completely different way.

Panel Discussion on Fabric Design:
 Denyse Schmidt, Mikey Krueger, Kathy Miller & Amy Ellis
I enjoy buying, painting and dying for me.
So it was good to discover this is something I am not interested in doing myself.
But so glad there are talented designers that do!

Meg Cox lectured on Photography. She is another one that blew me away with inspiration and creative ideas. She packed her time in with tips, tricks and suggestions from photographing your quilts for show entries, blogs, and social media. It was fantastic.

Her shawl was amazing too!

Bill Kerr Lecture was titled "Detail Matters"- I knew he and his wife (Weeks Ringle) are great quilt & fabric designers but I just did not want his lecture to end. I will seek and track him or his wife down for a class in the future.  Again, once I left that lecture I looked at everything around me differently as to the details on branding that he so humorously delivered.

The one class I took was with Lee Heinrich called "Off  The Grid"
This was about design layout of quilts. I had a sleepless night after that class!
If you ever get a chance--Take The Class!

I was playing Detective Clue-Sew for my fellow blogging buddy
Judy at Quilt Paradigm. This is the amazing quilt she made from
 Oakshott Fabrics from Pinwheel Fabrics

She did all the quilting on her domestic machine!

I belong to the Jersey Shore Modern Quilt Guild and this quilt was made by the members in way of design, sewing, and quilting for the QuiltCon donation quilt.

This a wonderful guild to belong to if you are in the area.


Janet at What Comes Next and Terry from Vancouver, MQG

This is Terry's beautiful quilt that was in the show.

  3. Hi Helen I have been visiting your blog the last hour and feel like I have been to a conference so much to read, learn and be motivated by. I'm exhausted LOL. Will come back another day while Hubby is away for two weeks, and I have the time to blog. Cheers Glenda Australia.
