While at QuiltCon, of course I shopped the vendors, but I was relatively good. I thought I would show you what I brought home. Most are purchases, but I scored an awesome souvenir!
Now, just look at this pincushion. Do you see those initials AJN? You know whose they are, right? I was looking at the quilts late Thursday afternoon and ran into none other than Amanda Jean Nyberg of Crazy Mom Quilts.

Before QuiltCon she mentioned in a blog post she would be giving out 75 pincushions at QuiltCon. You just had to show her a picture of a quilt you had made from one of her patterns. I've made a mini from her Trees pattern (blogged here). I've also made a mini Bright Birch Trees which haven't blogged about yet.
Ok, on to the rest. I was excited to receive a fat quarter of Flourish from Seventy Six by Alison Glass in the QuiltCon swag bag.

I splurged on a 2-year subscription to Simply Moderne and received this charm pack of Folk Art Revolution by Kathy Doughty and a tote bag and yearly calendar.

I also purchased a two small fat quarter bundles of Doe by Carolyn Friedlander at the Beyond the Reef booth.

I don't remember from which booth, but I purchased four half-yard cuts of Cotton and Steel's Basic, Add It Up in Lip Gloss, Bananas, Sea Glass and Indigo. These have already been prewashed, cut into and added to the stash. The substrate of the three on the top are an unbleached quilting cotton which feels wonderful and keeps the colors from being too saturated if that makes sense.

And lastly, I found these enamel and sterling silver earrings at the SCAD gift shop by Kathryn Riechert and thought they were the perfect souvenir since I took an indigo fabric dyeing class with Maura Ambrose of Folk Fibers. I'll share about my dyeing adventure in another post.
I hope your brought home lots of goodies from QuiltCon!
