Spring 2013 Quilt Market - Recap #2

My photos from Day #1 of the show floor of Quilt Market

I had to start my day by visiting Tula Pink's booth & take some photos. Her booth was amazing as always.

Tula Pink's new ribbons with Renaissance Ribbons.

Two of my quilts were featured in the Freespirit booth. I made Northern Lights from Tula Pink's new Acacia fabric. It was quilted by Teresa just days before Market!

I haven't had a chance to take a finished photo yet... but here is one Teresa took right after she quilted it.

Here you can see Science Fair. It was also quilted by Teresa last minute!

You can see the detail in the quilting in this photo that Teresa took.

I made "Kit Cards" for the two quilts. This way interested shops could get all the information they needed to make the two quilts exactly the way that I did.

Fun to see all these Julie! Always hard to decide my favorite but this time I am thinking Snacktime in Vanessa's new line!

I have your ruler and am set to go, this has inspired me to begin. Just can't decide on which quilt to make. So happy for your continued success in the quilting world, you inspire us and bring fresh ideas..

That's your Tiny Dancer in Dear Stella's booth, isn't it? Thanks for the beautiful pictures and for all the great work you do. I have six of your patterns so far.

Teresa Silva said...

Love your blog post! Thanks for sharing.

I really need to get fabrics together for Snacktime. My group has chosen Tula Pink's 100 blocks as the focus of your annual challenge. Not restricted to 6" BLOCKS. I can't imagine all the hard work the vendors go through to get these beautiful booths up in time. So is everyone 'binding quilts' on the trip to Portland?

Julie can I ask a real silly question? did you sew all these quilt tops for the fabric designers? or did they do that?
