Well……I am home from Spring Quilt Market, but still not sure I am rested up. What an experience this was!! My very first Quilt Market (hopefully not my last) and traveled with two wonderful ladies!!!
Linda Walsh, Jane Hauprich, Peggy Patterson
First we started out with Schoolhouse, where we were able to go to different classrooms and hear all about upcoming patterns, fabric lines, techniques, etc. Classes ran the entire day without a chance to stop for lunch (unless you skipped a session of classes). I had so much information in my head by the end of the day that I really couldn’t process it all!!
Elizabeth Hartman talking about all of her patterns and her fabric line!! Fabulous!!
We then waited 2 1/2 hours in line to go to Sample Spree. What a fun and CRAZY time that was!!! But the items for sale were wonderful!!!! I actually saw some people having to drag their bags out of there, as they were too heavy to pick up!! 🙂
The next day was the beginning of Market!! Below are pictures of just some of the amazing booths. I wish I could have taken a picture of each and every one of them, but it is just not possible!!
Lori Holt’s Farm Girl Quilt – Love this!!!
Jen Kingwell’s booth
1 Canoe 2 pictures below. This is me with one of the two ladies that design 1 Canoe 2 fabric and patterns. I am so excited because our Local Quilt Shop Owner, Peggy, has ordered the entire line for her shop, which will arrive in October!!!
Angela Walters Booth – Amazing lady!!!
Elizabeth Hartman’s booth!! Love these patterns!!!
Like I said, I wish I could post pictures of everything I saw!! There are so many talented, amazing artists out there!!!
One of my highlights was………..
Meeting Tula Pink!! What a sweet & talented lady she is!!!! I love her fabric and patterns!!
Next on the agenda was the Moda party…..along with about 700 other people!! It was a wonderful dinner!!!
Our ticket to get in to the event….a wristband!!
I also was able to meet Carrie Nelson, who works for Moda, but is also the owner of Miss Rosie’s Quilt Company!! What a sweet lady!!
All in all it was a fabulous time. I have so many ideas and thoughts still whirling around in my head!!!
Oh….another fun thing that a lot of the booths did was to hand out buttons. Here are the ones that I collected!! I think I am going to make a mini quilt out of a mini charm pack that I got from the 1 Canoe 2 booth and attach all of these buttons onto it for my “wall of minis”. It will be a great reminder of a really fun time!!
