ATCs from International Quilt Festival


As promised, here is a shot showing all the ATCs I traded for at International Quilt Festival a few weeks ago. What fun! The swap was hosted by Quilting Arts and Cloth Paper Scissors magazines, and took place in the Make It University/Open Studios area on the convention center floor.

In this shot, Michele Muska talks about her work as part of Open Studios, and you can see the ATC trade wall in the background:

Sharon, the artist who created the last card on my list, got one of my ATCs, and posted about it on her blog, E14Studio. Cool.

  1. I like the idea of making mini pieces, would be good practice too.
