Fall Quilt Market 2009 - Part 1



This is my booth. It had a little make over from the last market in Pittsburgh, but I still have a few more upgrades in mind for the next one. Like a better way to display my logo and a better clothing rack. I did add a digital frame this time that flashed through all of my previous designs and it worked out pretty good. People would stop for a treat and watch a few clips then we would chat just like you would in your own living room.

I made these chair covers that everybody seemed to like and they kept asking me to make a pattern for it. I'm thinking I might...for all the money in the world. If somebody could round that up for me and deposit it into my pay pal account, I'll get started.



I had these adorable buckets made to hold my patterns. Click HERE to get one for yourself:



Here are a couple of different versions of some of my new patterns:





I had another Nie Nie Skirt with the Olivia Top, but Holly bought it right out of my booth! It was made from Patty's Mezzanine fabrics. If you want to see it in person stop by Pine Needles in Gardner Village. Don't forget to pick up the pattern and a ton of fabric while you're there!

And last but not least, me and my loyal helper Kara. She is the bomb and I could not have done it without her!



Quilt Market was awesome! Houston was humid and I think we hold the record for getting lost the most out of anyone in the history of this world. That place is c r a z y. Thankfully the wonderful people in Houston took pity on us many times and by some miracle it all came together. I have a lot of stories to tell, but we'll save those for the full QM report coming in a few days. I still need to edit the rest of my pictures, fill some ordres, and get a few more good nights sleep before I attempt to write it all out.

Now to announce the winners of the contest!!!

Congrats to:

The Montalbos who won a custom made Nie Nie skirt!

Sarah Phipps, Vik, and Amy who won a pattern pack of all of my new patterns!

I can't believe I missed your giveaway! I've been a little out of it lately! I miss you! Quilt Market and your booth look fabulous. I heard it was successful...I ran into Hartman at church as I almost (ALMOST) walked into the men's room. A little embarrassing. Anyway, let's get together so I can hear all about your trip!
Love ya!
