And Cotton and Steel, who had the absolute cutest booth. I should have taken more pics, but I couldn't resist their little fireplace Christmas scene and the tattoo booth. Love!
Okay, on to the show. There were so many amazing quilts in the show, and though I spent hours perusing them and went back on multiple occasions, I'm pretty sure I didn't see them all. They were laid out in a sort of strange pod pattern, so it was easy to overlook ones in spots you thought you'd already covered, and reading others' recap posts, I keep coming across pics and being like "Wait! I don't remember that one!" So, drats. But even if I didn't see every last one, I saw some great stuff. Here are some of my favorites (also, I'm terrible and didn't write down the creators of all of these lovelies. I've noted the creator below if I remembered/already knew, but feel free to comment with attributions, and I'll update the post):

(all three above) Rebecca Bryan (Are you sensing I like rainbow?)
These were both guild quilts for the QuiltCon charity quilt project.Pretty awesome, right? And this barely scratches the surface. If you want to see more, there are lots of other blogger recap posts out there, and the MQG has also done several recap posts on their blog (here, here, here, and here). For a different take, I also enjoyed Lee's post over on Freshly Pieced, in which she talked more about the designs in the show and how "modern" was interpreted in the selection. I'm almost overwhelmed with inspiration and can't wait to start putting it into action. Time to start sewing!
