Good morning! Another sunny but colddd day! If you are a fan of modern quilts, you likely know that this is QuiltCon weekend. QuiltCon is an international modern quilt show that typically features over 550 quilts, more than 100 vendors, classes, etc. QuiltCon 2021 was to be held in Austin Texas, but Covid forced it to be held virtually. Of course, Texas is having many problems right now after being hit with a deadly deep freeze that has left millions without power and water...Texans aren't used to frozen pipes like we are here in the great white north! So perhaps it's just as well that there aren't thousands of quilters stuck in Austin in the middle of this storm system. Judging is now complete and you can view the winners by clicking here.

Next weekend is the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival Online. This 32nd annual show will be available around the clock from start to finish, Feb. 24-27, from Hampton Virginia. Virtual show-goers will be able to view the competition quilts, shop the Vendor's Mall online and take virtual interactive workshops from the comfort of home.
