I’m back. It’s been a busy week! Launching the Craftsy Class, finishing sewing for Quilt Market and then attending Quilt Market itself. All really good things.
Quilt Market is a semi-annual trade show for the Quilting and Sewing industry. This is where designers and manufacturers preview their upcoming products to be released in the months ahead. I got really lucky this year because Market was in Salt Lake City – my hometown and only about 40 min away from where I live now. I loved attending, seeing lots of pretty displays, quilts, and fabric. Best of all was seeing people that I’ve come to know and respect over the last 5 years.
I took lots of pictures and plan to share more. I’ll work on processing it all this week so that I can share in a coherent post. In the mean time, here’s a snippet of some of my favorite things. Starting top left and going clockwise: Gorgeous pillow display from Art Gallery Fabrics, the cuteness and creative genius that is Lori Holt, Riley Blake solids, including this awesome vintage pixelated rose design by Trish, One Room Schoolhouse fabric by Brenda Ratliff for RJR (coming out later this summer), the introduction of fabric from Rifle Paper Company (definitely a hit), and cute quilts and vintage turquoise sewing machine in Bonnie’s booth for Moda.
And don’t you love that Quilt With Love display in the top photo? It was part of the RJR booth.
Speaking of quilts with love – here’s my stack that I need to tackle and turn into a quilt this week before school gets out on Friday. (yikes. On so many levels) This one is for a teacher that has been an angel for us. This is my third kid to have her and she deserves so much more, but a quilt is going to have to suffice for the moment.
