Spilling Just a Few More Secrets...

So in Thursday's post "Spilling Secrets...Bridges & Tunnels" I shared with you all the quilt that I created for Modern Quilts Unlimited magazine.

What you may or may not know is that Modern Quilts Unlimited is a Platinum Sponsor of QuiltCon.

QuiltCon is the first inaugural conference for Modern Quilters, held this year in Austin, Texas. 

Have I lost you yet?  No...that's good.

Now it turns out that Modern Quilts Unlimited (and other larger Sponsors) were asked to select a few Presenters or Demonstrators.   These "Demonstrators" will be hosting sessions in the Vendor Hall during QuiltCon, giving those in attendance the opportunity to learn something along with shopping all the wonderful vendors, checking out the Quilt Show, etc. 

Here's where it gets "mind-blowing"...I'm one of the Presenters.  Yep, little ol' me! 

If you check out the QuiltCon website, under Demonstration'll find this.

I'll be there at 12:30pm on Thursday, February 21st...the first day of the show, trying not to hyperventilate (just kidding...well maybe) as I discuss my design process and how I created the Bridges & Tunnels Quilt.

I do hope that you'll stop by if you are at the show, as I'd like to fill a few chairs :-)
There are LOTS and I mean LOTS of other things happening during QuiltCon.
Make sure that if you haven't checked out the website lately, you do so.
Also make sure that you check out all of the wonderful Presenters/Demonstrators.

Happy Friday!!
