QuiltCon 2018 | Pasadena, CA
Presented by the Modern Quilt Guild, QuiltCon is the largest modern quilting show of its kind. Each year, thousands of attendees come to see over 550 modern quilts on display, including 360 juried in from MQG members around the world. The conference features four days of workshops and lectures led by leading designers and quilters, and the show floor has dozens of vendors and exhibitors for days of shopping and fun. SJSA had 11 quilts featured in this exhibit fostering dialogue around issues like Black Lives Matter, immigration reform, sexual assault, and gun violence. Our quilts did not shy away from depicting traumatic events like the murder of Eric Garner or the mass shooting that took 58 lives at a county music festival in Las Vegas last October.
