Austin Quilt Con

I got to go to Quilt Con in Austin a couple weeks ago and was so inspired by all the beautiful modern quilts!  Some of my favorite designers had quilts on show - it was very exciting.

Here is a pic of my favorite quilt from the competition.  It is called Techno Flakes by Amy Ellis.  It is a great modern take on the hexagons - LOVE!

The negative space quilting is also nicely done. 

I also saw a demo of Mistyfuse.  I know it's been around for a while, but I've never looked into it or tired it.  The sample from the demo was so soft, you couldn't tell there was any adhesive between the layers.  It looked so impressive that I had to buy a sampler and am anxious to give it a try.
