Monday, November 2, 2009
more from market...

this post.. is all moda... because there was just that much there that it needs its own post!
they had so many booths that we nicknamed the area "modaland"



my family traditions project with rachel's vintage ribbons table runner {she so needs to send this to me.. it matches my stuff!!
the main booth went from this...

to this...the moda crew worked very hard and it looked great!

here it is with the show floor full of people...

moda home...






a few mini quilts made from the new bake shop boxes...

martinique by 3 sisters

american jane with "A Breath of Avignon"

sandy klop was one of the first done with her booth... so here she is chatting it up with polly & laurie....aka Minick and Simpson... {while others were still working...}

blackbird designs with "Garden Party"

their beautiful booth...


barb of blackbird designs with jenny {tula pink} & her mom kat {who is the coolest mom ever}
many of my quilts were finished so last minute that i didn't have pictures yet... so we tried to get a few last minute ones... but mainly we got a bunch of laughter & shots like this...

here is the back of my square city quilt... made with hunky dory by chez moi... it actually got hung upside down! i'm sure nobody knew but me.. oh well!

and here are both of my quilts... concrete garden with square city
concrete garden will be a project sheet & kit from moda..
& i'll tell you more about square city down the road... ;-)
edit 3/23/10 - all the yummy details on square city!!
here is deb strain's booth...

& deb herself.. she is a total sweetheart!
her new fabric.. cherish nature
deb is an illustrator.. and not a quilter by trade...
so debbie outlaw from moda helped & stepped in for edyta's triangle challenge,
deb has made her first quilt.. and i'm determined to help turn her into a quilter!!

fig tree yummyness..

new snuggles fabric.. its super fuzzy

their booth was simple but bold...

Love those baskets in the last photo, are they selling the pattern to the public yet?? Looks like it was a great show!

Thanks for bringing the show to us. Really enjoyed see all the new lines.

What lovely enjoyable pictures--I just love them--and I believe we can see more having them here on the net than if we were actually there--we can take our time and really look--Thanks for sharing!
Hugs, Di

I'd be happy just seeing their "booth" at a show. Delightful. Looks like some lovely fabrics have been released. Difficult to pick my favorite, but I can't wait to play with the nautical fabrics.

Thanks for sharing. Very much appreciated.

Wonderful pictures!! I'm so glad you shared them all (I'm sure it took a while to create this post.) But thanks so much for doing it - it is really fun to see everything. And I'm sure seeing some of your own quilts displayed made it even better!

My favourite season is summer - I like the long days and the heat.

Thanks for the giveaway!
