I go to a fair number of quilt shows, and most of them are attended by women (and a few men) in casual but unspectacular fashions. At QuiltCon, however, I saw so many women dressed in fancy outfits. Here are just a few:
Miriam and her sister, who collaborate on most of their projects, had a great quilt in the show. (Her sister wasn’t this much of a fashion statement though–sorry Emily!)
Since QuiltCon was in Austin, lots of people brought out their boots. I love the look of boots with dresses:
Many of the women had dresses in prints that looked like modern quilts, including this one:
And a number of women had dresses and skirts they had made themselves. This woman had a dress to match her hair!
Check out how she even matched the pattern where she put in the zipper! If you’ve ever sewn garments, you know that’s an accomplishment. And the pockets were made from a cute safety pin print.
My friend and I loved this blouse, worn by Kelly of the Ventura MQG:
And finally, here is a different type of fashion statement–I’m riding a giant sewing machine! Why do you suppose my friend wouldn’t let me take a picture of HER riding it???
Pictures of my favorite quilts next week!
Your attire would have been complete with cowboy boots…Mary P. It looked like you were having great fun!
Yep, had to settle for shoes that matched the machine–haven’t had cowboy boots for several years. Thanks for visiting!
It looks like you had a great time! Sorry I missed you.
Yikes! I thought you weren’t going to QuiltCon. I’ll phone you when things slow down a bit around here! Thanks for reading.
