Childress Collection: Special exhibit at #QuiltCon, Nashville 2019

I am thrilled to announce a special exhibit at #QuiltCon 2019, in Nashville next February.

The annual convention of the Modern Quilt Guild, Quilt Con brings together a vibrant and dynamic bunch of quilters each year for workshops, lectures and networking. Plus a truly inspiring quilt show dedicated primarily to modern quilters today.

Within the show will be special exhibits. To date, my quilts appear to be the only vintage and antique exhibit scheduled. Looking through the convention catalogue, I’m struck by how in sync the focus of my collecting is with modern quilters today.

For instance, here are a few workshop titles:

  • Making Do: The Architecture of Clothing
  • Reconsider the Grid
  • Improv Theme & Variation
  • Planned and Unplanned
  • Deconstructing Design
  • Improv Applique Curves
  • Boro Inspired Stitching
  • Big Stitch Hand Quilting
  • Architectural Slice & Insert
  • Layered Quilt Concepts

While still brewing on which quilts I’ll include, there will surely be examples of layering, patching, improvisation, abstraction, and making do.

I’ll be there on opening day, Thursday February 21st, kicking off the day with a presentation. Hope you can make it!
