I told you I’d be back. Thanks to all of you who stopped by to say “hi”. It means a lot that you didn’t give up on me.
Well, another Quilt Market has come and gone. Sometimes it feels like a blur. This year even more so because it was just Anne and me there handling the duties. I didn’t get very many pictures because we never really got a chance to get out of the booth. Here are some pictures of the booth and the quilts of Bunny Hill.
Anne’s newest fabric collection is called Lily and Will II and it is done in the most luscious colors of aqua and yellow.
While I haven’t been sewing for myself much, I did make these quilts for Anne. This first one is called “Cape Cod Baby”.
Next up… “B is for Baby”
And… “The More the Merrier”
I also did all the machine applique on “The Night before Christmas”. Cute new Block of the Month, huh?
I also made another color variation of “The More the Merrier” for the Moda booth. I got so tickled seeing it displayed there. Wow….I made a quilt that’s hanging at Moda! That’s Bob, Lissa, and Diane. Bob and Diane are married Moda reps who I met when I worked at Sew Many Quilts here in Bend. Lissa is the genius Marketing Director for Moda. They are all so cute!
Look who our next door neighbor was. Alma Allen of Blackbird Designs!!! I’d say we were in good company, wouldn’t you? Her booth won 1st place for a single booth. I wish you could have seen her laying on the floor during set up, with her nail gun putting the walls together for the booth. Barb was only there the opening day. She had to go back to work. Boo Hiss work!
Our neighbors on the other side were the hilarious Barb and Mary of “Me and my Sister” designs. We had so much fun with them.
Kate Spain with her new line of fabric, “Central Park”. Check out the darling plates on the table. They are made using Kate’s designs and sold at Crate and Barrel. She also designs greeting cards that are sold at Target. Quite a talented young lady. And…she’s as nice as she is talented.
Another special and talented designer is Deb Strain. I’m always excited to see what new paper products she’s come out with.
Check out Jan Patek with her friend and helper Jenny. They were having such a good time. You would have thought it was Halloween or something! LOL
More pictures of her booth. These are all so “my” style. I wanted to move in.
This is Sandy Klop of “American Jane”. I’ve known her since my California days. She’s the best!
And here’s Kathy Schmitz with her wonderful stitchery designs. I met her for the first time at Spring Market and she’s the kind of person who makes you feel like you’ve known her your whole life. Such a sweetie.
And, winner of 2nd place, single booth, was Karla Eisenach of “Sweetwater”. This was the first time I had met her but one night when we went to dinner with her I discovered that she used to be the brains behind “Farmyard Creations” quilts and doll patterns. I was so excited because I think I still have all her patterns! From Farmyard Creations, she went into scrapbook paper design with her daughters and now with Moda and fabric designs. A very creative family there!
Then…anyone who knows me, knows how much I love Lynn Hagmeier’s Kansas Troubles fabric and patterns. Her booth always feels like home to me. This year was no exception with her new “Perennials” fabric. I picked up a fat pack at Sample Spree and it’s just as wonderful as all her other lines.
It was so good to see Mary (Mary’s Cottage Quilts) along with her friend, Val. They are always such fun. Don’t you just love Mary’s smile? And her quilts too, of course.
And, last but not least, I quickly grabbed my camera when I walked past Buggy Barn’s newest creation. The quilt is called “Farm Fresh” and I just fell in love with it.
So, that’s it for another Quilt Market. It’s so much work but so much fun. So much creativity under one roof. It never ceases to amaze me!
On another note, Linda is having a giveaway. It’s an Accuquilt GO! Go on over there and enter to win. Those little machines were huge at Market.
So, if you made it to the end…congratulations. Whew…this blogging thing is tiring. Just Kidding.
See ya later.
