Celebrating My QuiltCon Entries

I submitted 4 quilts for QuiltCon this year.   As many of you know, it is really hard to get a good quilt photo - especially one that shows up the quilting and gets the color correct.  I photograph every quilt outside and often am trying to capture photos in between wind gusts!

One thing I always do is jump in a photo with the quilt - here is me with my quilt Sanity.

Sanity was one of my favorite quilts made this year.  It even showed up in an issue in Curated Quilts.  I don't actually remember if I entered it into the Small Quilts category or the Log Cabin challenge.

Decade is my entry to the X (or plus) challenge celebrating ten years of QuiltCon.

 Sea of Tranquility is my entry to the fabric challenge.  It was also my entry for our guild's challenge and I'm excited that it won Viewer's Choice!

Finally, my quilt Patent Pending, a Rube Goldberg device in fabric, created with support of some wonderful quilting friends - Linda @flourishingpalms, Sarah @saroy, Val @valbetweenquilts, Charles  @feltlikesweets, Kitty @nightquilter, Yvonne @quiltingjetgirl and Pat @peacockcreekdesigns.  I submitted this quilt into the Group category.

Yvonne from QuiltJetGirl has started an initiative to #CelebrateMyQuiltSubmission.  I love this idea because it recognizes that it takes a bit of courage to actually submit a quilt to a show.  Acceptance and rejections letters will be sent by mid December.  Fingers crossed.

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. Congratulations on your beautiful submissions; they are all lovely and I'm especially drawn to Decade.

  2. Good luck on your entries! They are all great quilts and I hope some of them make it in!

  3. They are all great submissions! I really like Decade and of course the Rube Goldberg device is amazing.

  4. It's great to see all your entries together, and I'm looking forward to finding all of them at QuiltCon! Best wishes to you, with toes and fingers crossed for our group quilt. Interestingly, I heard recently that another well-known modern quiltmaker is telling students in her classes NOT to share pictures of their QuiltCon submissions. I don't know her reason for telling quilters not to do that, only that this person was a juror one time. Personally, I love seeing what others have entered, and I'm glad you shared this on your blog, just as I shared mine.


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
