Quilt Market–people part 2

Yesterday when I did the post, it was so long and full of pictures that blogger wouldn’t process it thru. So, I had to delete some. Here ya go then, with part 2.

First up are Paula Barnes and Mary Ellen Robison, the creative geniuses behind Bonnie Blue Quilts.

The quilt hanging on the far right is a new Block of the Month called “Cotton Club”. You can find stores offering it by doing a google search. I got the pattern for the scrappy pinwheel one right under it.

Here’s the other 1/2 of the booth. It’s so cozy I just want to snuggle up in there.

This is Renee Plains of Liberty Star. Do you like how she’s standing with her hand on her hip? At the last market, someone told her that it makes you look slimmer because you can see through and your arm doesn’t add width to your body. Hmmm, like she needs to worry about that? NOT! She’s a kick.

It wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t get to see PamKittyMorning. She was working hard manning the Lakehouse booth.

And here’s Debbie Outlaw who is the pattern buyer for United Notions. She’s certainly NOT a witch!

This next quilt belongs to Marcie Patch of Patchalot Patterns. She wasn’t able to make it to Houston, but her quilt was hanging in the Marcus Brothers booth. She emailed me before I left for market and asked me to take a picture for her. So pretty. This one’s for you, Marcie.

When I used to work at Sew Many Quilts here in town, I got to know these two reps for Moda when they would come in to show the owners all the latest fabrics. Here are Bob and Dianne who are married to each other. I love being able to see them twice a year.

Notice how hard Dianne is working. What’s up with that, Bob?

Well, I better quit while I’m sure this will post okay. I’ve still got pictures of the quilt show and some eye candy pics of some of the products throughout the show.

Hugs, Anne

Good pics from Market. I totally didn't take many this year. I say I was focusing that's why. :) But I did get one of YOU!!
