QuiltCon Virtual Quilt Show: Appliqué

One of the highlights of QuiltCon was, of course, the Quilt Show. It was actually my first time going to a quilt show, believe it or not. But since there were so many people out there who weren't able to attend QuiltCon I thought I would bring the Quilt Show to all of you so everyone had a chance to see all of the amazing quilts in the show. Since there were so many incredible quilts, I'm going to break the show up by category so it's a little more easy to digest. I know when I was there I had to walk through the show several times to really digest it all. So lets start today with the Appliqué Category.
