Quilt shows are fun times to get together with other quilters to see what is new in the quilting world. In 2015 there will be many quilt shows that should not be missed. You can attend workshops to learn new techniques to make your quilts ever more beautiful. You can also browse through galleries of beautiful quilts, such as the Double Wedding Ring with Stars quilt, to inspire your own quilting projects.
This show is so popular that it has to travel throughout the country all year. In 2015 there are six cities hosting this show. The host cities are all over the country. No matter where you live there will be a show close to you. Attend one of the many workshops and discover new stitching techniques to bring your quilts to life. Or you can see new ways for to piece together a quilt top.
This show takes place in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in March. It’s not to be confused with the AQS show that takes place on the same dates. This show is celebrating its 25th anniversary, and to celebrate the directors are offering a free raffle with a gift basket worth $2,500 as the grand prize. Besides hosting many interesting workshops, this show boasts an exhibit of antique quilts. These quilts display how timeless a good pattern can be.
If you happen to be deep in the heart of Austin, Texas this February, you can attend the fun and vibrant QuiltCon. This convention is hosted by the Modern Quilt Guild and offers many unique lectures and workshops. It also offers opportunities for you to show off your quilting skills by entering your quilts in the juried quilt shows for the possibility of winning thousands of dollars in prize money. Maybe a quilt using the Dresden Star pattern will help you earn a top spot.
No matter which show you decide to attend you can be sure you will come home with more ideas about how to make beautiful quilts. Classic Quilting Patterns make timeless projects for you to show off your new skills.
