Hello from beautiful Austin! Rhonda and I are power-lunching and drinking mojitos as we speak and I’m sitting here being rude and posting this. ROUGH LIFE.
They opened the doors of the convention hall for us today a little after 10:00 a.m., and a swarm of quilters was unleashed. I visited the MQG Quilt Show first, and it was amazing. AMAZING. Nothing compares to seeing these quilts in person, but here are at least a few of the highlights:
After I perused the quilt show, I headed over to the vendor side. I loved all the different fabric shops representing, both local and national, and the biggies like Aurifil, Robert Kaufman, Moda, Michael Miller, and Cotton + Steel. And check out the drool-worthy booth at Superior Threads:
And a sewing-machine riding bull at Stitch Lab(!):
We’ll be in classes (and hanging out at the Moda Party tonight — don’t forget about our T-shirt giveaway!) tomorrow and Saturday, but we’ll keep Instagramming. Be sure to follow us @rightsidestogether for up-to-the-minute QuiltCon goodness!
