Quiltcon prep

This week, I managed to plug along and make six more Peek blocks. Progress. I also did some Quiltcon prep. Yes, this time next week I will be walking the show at Quiltcon in Austin. I am nervous and excited, to use some totally over-used words for some pretty big feelings.

Over the weekend, the MQG started #HelloQuiltcon on Instagram, so I posted  a selfie to help people recognize me:IMG_2189

Though I’ll probably look more like this (I’m learning to love lipstick but it’s not a signature look yet):


I missed the Instagram lanyard swap, so I made one for me (Carolyn Friedlander grids, chic and goes with almost everything I wear):


And one for Ashley (bright, floral Anna Maria Horner in cerise, goes perfectly with her beautiful personality):


I also got some cards to give to people I meet. They have Peek on the back, and I’m so tickled that the printing picked up the texture of the quilting in the negative space:


Next up is the practical stuff, like packing and getting everything in order. If you’re planning to go, keep an eye out for me and say hi!

Oh! And one more thing. My lovely friend Stephanie (who I’ll be meeting in person for the first time next week) at Late Night Quilter started a new linky party on Tuesdays for tips and tutorials, so check it out and vote for your favorite. I’m the first link there with my Blip baby quilt tutorial, but I’ll be sure to have new content for that the next time I link up.

Have a great weekend!
