Who's Going to Quilt Con?

So who else spent their morning frantically refreshing the Quilt Con website, waiting for registration to open? : ) I'm all registered, and so excited to head to Austin in February!

I got the four-day lecture pass, and one workshop, "Quilting the Negative Space" with Angela Walters. That may not have been the most practical workshop choice, seeing as I don't actually own a longarm. But it just sounded like so much fun!

Who else is going to Quilt Con? Can't wait! See you there!

Can't wait Lee! I'm going and taking Anna Maria Horner's Composing a Quilt class Friday all day, Angela Walter's Quilting Negative Space class Saturday morning and Lotta Jansdotter's Textile Printing class Saturday afternoon.

I'm probably not going to Quiltcon, but wanted to chip in and say I took longarm classes at MQS this spring from Cathy Franks, and I don't have a longarm either. It was totally worth it though; I learned a ton and almost everything could be applied to FMQ on the home machine. Quiltcon sounds like it's going to be awesome!

I'm all signed up too!
Thursday: Perfect Circles
Friday: AM: textile printing, PM: quilting negative space
Saturday: lectures
Sunday: lectures

I'm SO excited for the Angela Walters class! I think that it will be so informational, even for those of us who don't have long arms. :)

I'm going! Composing a Quilt on Friday, Free Motion Quilting on Saturday, and Machine Quilting with Angela on Sunday. I couldn't be more excited! I guess I need to get back into quilting and blogging again. :)

OH! I want to go. I have to see if I can get hubby to agree! I am taking Angela's crafty class and it is pretty awesome! I do have the LA, but I just did a mini on my domestic, and I have never been more excited about FMQ!!!!

I had planned to go but backed out today. Too many decisions to make going on in my head right now. I'm probably going to regret NOT going.

Susan S. said...

I'm going too. Missed out on two classes that I really wanted but did get into the Improv Round Robin on Saturday, Machine Pieced Hexagons on Sunday afternoon and 4 day lecture pass. So excited!

Anna said...

I'm going, too! I am really excited. I'm signed up for Every Last Stitch with Anna Maria Horner, Perfect Circles, and Machine Piecing Hexagons. And the 80s dance party as well, naturally.

Linda said...

I'm not. I hope you all have a fabulous time!

Melissa said...

I would like to go to QuiltCon. I'm still hoping the Universe will make a way for me.

Nanette said...

I am going, and I'm totally excited. It will be my first vacation with my daughter, who will be 14 months old in February. (My husband's going too, so they'll do stuff together while I am taking classes.)

I got into Anna Maria Horner's Every Last Stitch and the hand applique class. My grandmother, who is a hand quilting and hand applique expert, will be so proud of my choices!

I'm going! So, so excited about QuiltCon. I'm doing a bunch of workshops, and I'm waitlisted for AMH's Every Last Stitch, As bad as it makes me feel, I REALLY want someone to back out so I can do it! Is that terrible? Probably.
