This was my very first time at Quilt Market and boy was it a whirlwind of a day. I had such a great time meeting lots of people. The market itself is big and full of inspiration. My favorite inspiration was all the beautiful quilts and projects which just made me want to REALLY learn how to sew. There were so many great ones, here are just a few that I was able to snap shots of…
I also saw the most beautiful fabric including Poppy Patterns by Laura Gunn. I actually met her and she was so nice. I really can’t wait to get my hands on this fabric! So different from what I have on hand.
Speaking of meeting people……. drumroll please…. We met Heather Bailey and best of all Carina was brave enough to actually talk to her and bug her for a photo so that we actually have proof of this meeting. She was so sweet and kind and actually a little shy which only makes her more sweet and kind. It was pretty awesome. (that’s Carina Gardner and Deena Rutter on the other side of me)
We also met Lizzy House who designs some super adorable fabric and also wrote a great book on breaking into the quilting industry.
I feel silly because I forgot to actually take a picture of Riley Blake‘s booth, which is the awesome manufacturer that I am designing some fabric for as well as work with through My Mind’s Eye on a lot of projects. But they are amazing and you should definitely check out all their great fabric. Well we’re exhausted here but had a great day at Market.
