QuiltCon recap part 1: Favorite quilts

I’m back from QuiltCon and here’s a post full of my favorite quilts! These are by and large not award winners, not because those weren’t beautiful, but because you’ve probably seen those all over the place already and I wanted to share some that perhaps you haven’t yet if you didn’t get an opportunity to go to the show.
