QuiltCon Recap 1: The Quilts

Today I'm sharing lots of quilts from QuiltCon.  The exhibition was totally overwhelming in terms of both the number and quality of quilts, and this is just a small selection, chosen based on what caught my eye.  I will be following up with at least one more post on QuiltCon, covering the classes I took and the experience overall (amazing).
