As the sun was setting over the cotton fields in Missouri we were making our way to Houston for Fall Quilt Market 2013.
Our spot at the George Brown Convention Center was waiting for us.
Our labor of love was loaded in the car and we were anxious to show what we have been dreaming about and working on for the last few months!
The setup went nice and smooth with help from friends.
We were ready to visit and visit we did!
Stopped to say hello to everyone.
Had fun shopping for fabrics.
Made some new videos with the Fat Quarter Shop.
Believe me, attending the quit market is like a ride on a beautiful carousel.
And it is even more fun when you know that you are doing it with a bunch of your friends! Each of us brings something different to this event.
Thimbleblossoms and Cotton Way bloomed this season in beautiful Polka-Dots.
Kate Spain inspired with color.
Sweetwater had adorable labels.
American Jane made a splash with her happy colors.
Me and my Sister delivered a total treat.
Primitive Gathering surprised with beautiful small prints.
Bunny Hill will make you believe.
V and Co was able to “color me happy” with her creations.
Pat Sloan had an abundance of colorful baskets.
Zen Chic makes it “simple but significant”, I couldn’t agree more.
Janet Claire, a new designer, has sailed her boat with Moda – congratulations!
Minick and Simpson almost never let their needle rest, it was so enjoyable to watch her quilt at the show.
Deb Strain made my heart skip a beat.
Basic Grey was simple and elegant.
Fig Tree brought not only mouth watering fruit, but also yummy colors.
Jan Patek does not need training wheels, you just love to go for a ride with her.
Blackbird Design makes you go ahhhhh with all of the romantic shades of purple.
I think Kathy Schmitz fingerprints are heart shaped, her hands create so much love.
Kansas Troubles never fails to impress with her fabrics and beautiful quilts.
It has been so much fun to spend time with everyone, it feels like a weekend at the shore, we all grab our shovels and play in this sandbox of quilt market.
I’m always amazed how much work it is to prepare and setup for market, but even more impressive is the takedown of the show.
Many helping hands and creative minds come together to make this show a reality.
This year I took my time and enjoyed watching the Moda crew in action!
In no time, their crates were filled and the show was over.
I took my shovel with me, holding it nice and tight, while I enjoy the great memories from this market and look forward to my next opportunity to play.
