Quilt Con in Pasadena!

I spent much of last Friday and Satirday at Quilt Con! It is a Modern Quilt event that has been held previously in Austin. So this was its first time on the west coast. I went with my friend Julie Schlueter. Even though neither of us are Modern quilters, we still had a wonderful time. 
I didn't mean to start a button collection, but I ended up with one, anyway!
That's Julie in blue, heading off to look at the quilts. There were some beauties! I wish I had taken more photos. 

On Friday night there was a reception sponsored by C&T books. Wowsers, quilt star Luke Haynes was there! Afterwards we had dinner with a fun group. We gave a toast to Yvonne Porcella and to strong women. 
There were many notables there, but I was excited to meet Lotta Jansdotter! I told her I had her book, which I used a lot when Sammy was a baby. I also told her I love her fabric. A scrap of one is below. 

Good times!
