I had the pleasure of getting to work the Moda Bakeshop Booth at the first annual QUILTCON this past weekend and it was so much fun. 

Here is my overall review of the show... 
I really enjoyed it and I am very glad I got the opportunity to go!
If you know me, you know I am a details kinda person. So I loved how they paid attention to every little detail from the name badges to the ribbons on the quilts. I LOVED the ribbons!! So very cute. 

The show had a very fresh & fun feel to it. 

The show was much smaller than I expected. I was surprised there were not more vendors selling things. 
I didn't get to attend any workshops but they had a good mix and alot to offer those who attended. 

I think this show will do well in the future and expect alot more shops to vend next year. 
Most importantly it inspired me to not only sew more but also to attempt new things. 

And here is a little about our BAKESHOP booth...

Holly did a fabulous job of designing the booth, as usual. She got these awesome brick panel walls for the booth and painted them white. I now want them for my home! love them!

I got the honor of painting some chalkboard signs for the booth. : ) 
I painted the sign above for the entrance and then some prop signs for the photo booth.  

I did the chalkboard artwork for the super fun photo booth we had which was the highlight of the whole show (in my biased opinion)! 
We hired BOOTH 66, which is out of Austin, to come and photograph during the whole show. 
They also do weddings and all kinds of other events... if you need someone! 
They are not only amazing at what they do, they are also so much fun to be around. 
We were instant friends. 

Here are a few of our wacky photos... 
Please don't answer that! 

Had to pull out the "I like BIG QUILTS and I cannot lie!" sign for our owner, Mr. Dunn. 
If anyone likes Big Quilts, it is him. : ) 

And now for the QUILTS!

Touch This Quilt.

The QUILTCON quilt. 
I borrowed this picture from the Modern Quilt Guilds website because I LOVE This quilt!

Blue, Green & Grey was a popular combo. 

Funky Little Houses

And for the grand finale.... 
Let me introduce you to my newest adventure. 
Green Tea & Sweet Beans. 

Several of us are ordered this quilt kit and are anxiously awaiting its arrival! 
Isn't it precious? I love the newsprint background and bright flowers.

That pretty much sums up my first QUILTCON experience. 
Did you attend? What did you think?
