I'm home from Quilt Market & finally starting to adjust back to normal life. Here is the first of a few posts to recap.
I was working up until the last minute... including finishing some bindings on the airplane!
I designed some Spoonflower fabric based on my Day Break quilt and made a Staple Dress the night before I flew to Houston!
Thank you to Jessica for taking all of the photos for me! You will see I talk a lot with my hands!
I explained how each of the shapes are cut...
...and showed off a bunch of the projects. Here is Rock Candy.
Seaside Table Runner from Botanics Fabrics
Giggles Baby Quilt... and me talking with my hands!
This was the first time anyone got to see it in person since I had just finished it a few days earlier!
Then it was Rachel's turn to do a schoolhouse on Quilts Made with Love. I was tempted to take one of those quilts in that giant stack!
Note to self: Don't sit in the front row next time as it is hard to get photos of the quilts!
The last schoolhouse I attended was for Tula Pink. She was showing off her new collection "Fox Field" that will be in stores in March.
One of Tula's quilts.
Getting good photos here wasn't much easier. Lots of smart phone & iPads everywhere!
Tula Pink herself made MY Night Sky quilt. Honestly I almost cried when she asked me for the pattern so that she could make it from her new fabric! I love it so much that I plan on making one for myself just like it!
Tula also showed off the Disco quilt that I made from her new Fox Field fabric.
I really wanted a good photo of my quilt... so I snuck into the isle to snap a photo... and of course someone snapped a photo of it & posted to Instagram!!
I'll be back in a few days with more Quilt Market photos!
