Fox 7 in Austin, Texas did a really great spot on QuiltCon, and I was delighted to see quilts from my exhibit, "Modern Materials, Quilts of the 1970s" included in the footage. It was a Polyester Patchwork Photobomb with Best in Show Winner, Kathy York of Austin-- two of my quilts behind her to the left.
The one you can easily recognize is this incredible polyester Diamonds quilt, monumental in scale and in fact too large for the tallest post and drape in the show. They had to pin it over at the top to avoid having it on the floor.

I'm sure all of you would like to get a better look at this quilt made by Kathy York of Austin Modern Quilt Guild. It won Best in Show!
It is called "i Quilt" and I call it a quintessential 21st century quilt. Shout out to Elizabeth Hartman of Portland Modern Quilt Guild, who made the QuiltCon ribbons, and Jen Carlton-Bailey, who pieced the give-away quilt seen in the photo behind the ribbon. And another Polyester Patchwork Photobomb!
