We’re back from Fall Quilt Market and Quilt Festival
and most of my catch-up work is complete, whew!!!
What a busy, tiring and fun trip.
It took most of our kitchen to hold all the “stuff” that I packed into the van…
Everything was labeled & packed tight for the 15 hour drive.
Nothing worse than listening to things rattle for hours on end.
Ask me how I know!
My super booth helpers (market slaves), Robin (Nestlings by Robin)
& Chloe & I had the booth set up in no time!
That’s a bit of an exaggeration.
It did finally get set up Friday evening after
a schoolhouse session with Pepper Cory & Studio e Fabrics & her Designer RSVP Blocks that
Robin & I participated in, making blocks with her Peppered Cottons:
Yes, Robin the overachiever made 2!
Then, 2 Schoolhouse sessions showing my new Tiny & Mini Dresden plate book & patterns,
and then the C&T Schoolhouse session introducing the
13 new quilts from Dresden Quilt Workshop:
Then there were book signings introducing Dresden Quilt Workshop.
A couple of mornings before market opened,
we walked part of the show to see what else came to Houston besides Suzn Quilts.
Here’s a look at my fav… Jo Morton’s newest line, New Hope, yum!
I’m pretty sure Jo designed this collection just for me ;)
(Spoiler alert—-You’ll be seeing a lot more of this collection!)
Betsy Chutchian’s new collection was very pretty.
French General’s new collection was lovely too.
Lella Boutique also very pretty.
Tim Holtz, always super cool!
Jen Kingwell, WOW!
Her newest collection, more yum!!!
Oh, & a new book…
a little close-up in case you’re not sure what I’m pointing at, lol!
Then there was Festival!
That will have to wait for another day.
Just Keep Sewing…
