Quilt Market Update

We just finished up walking the exhibits from Quilt Market.  It was a lot of fun to see all the fabulous new fabrics.  We also got to meet some great people.

We hit the Kona booth. I have a fun little something from Kona to give away next week.

Amy Butler is fabulous as always and has some really fun corduroy fabric coming out that I might have to make something with.

Anna Maria Horner's booth was beautiful.  She has a new bag pattern coming out this summer that would be the perfect carry-all bag.

Here I am with Kayli, Brooke and Jennifer Paganelli.  We bought Jennifer's Girls' World book and had it signed.  She was a hoot and definitely one of my favorite people to meet.  Don't you just love her glasses?!

I love Joel Dewberry's new line, plus they are finally coming out with a pattern for their skirt that I adore.

Aneela had her own tattoo parlor.  Here is Brooke getting one.  The Little Apples line is super cute and soft.  I got a free little pack of 2.5" squares that I'm excited to play with a bit.  I think this fabric might make a couple cute skirts for my girls.  Aneela was so cute and had such a fabulous accent.

If you look close in this picture, you can see my tattoo as well. 

Also, I had a chance to chat for a minute with Bonnie and Camille.  We are all originally from the same tiny Idaho town.  I didn't know Camille growing up because she is a few years younger, but I'm always proud of people from our little town who do great things.

I'm headed to the Quilt Market Meet-Up for a bit tonight.  The Modern Quilt Guild Meet-Up was great last night as well.  I had a chance to chat with several people including Jacquie.  I just adore her. 

Stick around, I have a couple goodies to give away next week!

  4. all this looks so exciting. It's a pity I live so far away and can't participate.

  5. That looks like SO much fun!!! I'm so glad you got to go. The quilt on Joel Dewberry's table that is plum, pink and green is GORgeous!

  6. I know it's wrong to be envious but I'm so envious! You look like you and the girls had a fabulous time. One day when I come to the States I'll make it co-incide with a quilt market!

  7. Looks like a blast!! Someday I'll learn to quilt, although I have been sewing lately and really enjoying the creative outlet. I finally have a couple of babysitting options so I can leave the house! Let's get together soon.

    PS- Did you know that Bonnie is my dad's sister?
