We had a great time at QuiltCon last week in Austin! As sponsor of the Modern Traditionalism category of the juried show, we loved seeing all the unique interpretations of the theme. And we were so happy to see that the Best in Show quilt by Victoria Findlay Wolfe had been selected from this awe-inspiring category.

There were so many beautiful quilts that it was overwhelming – it’s impossible to pick a favorite, but here are just some that we had the pleasure of seeing!
