Fall Quilt Market 09 Part 3
So I'm going to do a 4 part thing because I have too many good pictures and I don't want to leave any out.
This post is all about the Free Spirit/Westminster girls. Starting out with Heather:
I got to know Heather last Fall Market (getting lost and hanging out in Houston for a night) and I have to say I just love her! I asked her at that Market, why she has never had a booth. She said it was because she knew that once she committed to doing one that it would have to be done just right and that it was going to be a A LOT of work. Well...She was right, but all I can say is WOW! Her booth design was incredible and her sweet Husband Isaac almost worked himself to death getting it assembled, but he survived and they won first prize for the best booth! Her fabric is as beautiful as ever and her new patterns are amazing! It's all on my Christmas wish list.
I could have moved right in...
Yes, that is real grass...
Love the critters...
This is what it looks like when a really tall person stands next to a really short person...
Next, let's just say I'm in LOVE with Amy's new line. Amy is always so nice and so gracious. She really is a fabric genius and this time she has really done it! The colors and prints are so vibrant and beautiful! I love it so much, that I'm going to use in my next pattern line and booth design. Oh, I can't wait to sew with this stuff...
Amy won second prize for her booth design!
I think this is my favorite print.
She always has fresh cut flowers that match her booth.
I just realized that I didn't get a picture of Amy herself! What was I thinking? Sorry Amy, I'll get you next time!
And now for the Fabulous Anna Maria! She just had her 6th baby, but there she was with a booth, beautiful new fabric, patterns, and 2 of her kids! I am amazed at the things she can accomplish while raising a young family. She is always so sweet and fun to talk to . She really is an inspiration to mommy's everywhere:
Here is her little guy. Isn't he cute!
I love all the rich colors!
I had a little contest at Market and forgot to announce the winner on Oct. 26th like I promised. So here it is now! The winner of a sample set to display in her Quilt shop Donna's Quilt Studio in New Zeland! She and her beautiful daughter stopped by my booth a couple of times to chat and they are both so, so nice. I wish I would have taken a picture of them. They are very deserving of the prize and I hope it really helps boost some pattern sales. Congrats!
