Quilt Market 2012

 Anna came over today for a lesson on how to do the starch method of applique and while she was here I asked her to give me a lesson on how to set up "Smilebox" slideshows.    She started showing me but the Smilebox format looked different to her and she had a bit of confusion which of course made me doubly confused.  So, I thought I'd give Blogger a try and see if the new interface is any better to me than the old one was that wouldn't let me load many pictures.     Oh....I managed to get my blog roll fixed.   All of a sudden I could make changes.   Sometimes technology just completely baffles me!

Anyway, on to pictures from Quilt Market.   I'll start with Primitive Gatherings since, once again, they were our neighbors.  

This is a gorgeous kit called "Wool Alphabet Sampler.    Did I buy it?   You betcha!

I'll just let you enjoy all the eye candy.

See the snowman, bunny and sunflower above the wool?  Those go with the Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine project that Lisa did in the very first issue.  

Look at all the yummy wool!

Both of the quilts hanging on the wall are new patterns.

Better view of "Petals and Pennies".   It's all wool on a flannel background.   Just gorgeous.

Check out all the Valdani threads.   Be still my heart!

This quilt is called "Colfax County" and has a bazillion little pieces to it.   If you want to read all about the quilting that was involved, check out Linda's post.  She did a beautiful job quilting it.

And there's Lisa, hiding in the corner.

Lots more to share.   See ya later.

Wow! What an awesome booth, I can see why people just drop their wallet off when they go into that booth. Nice post!

Anna said...

The variety and colors of wool and threads are amazing. I can imagine walking around quilt market dazed by all of the goodies.

Karen said...

There is a quilt with many, many, many squares set on point. I wonder what size they are. They look small! I think I could have spent a couple thousand in that booth and been very happy.

It was great seeing you there! It seems like ages. Wish I'd made it down to that end of the convention center for more of a visit. Houston, right?
