Playing Around

After weeks of preparing for Quilt Market everyone deserves a little playtime!

Getting quilts finished for the Quilt Market like this “Flower Garden” from our new book “Handful of Scraps” takes lots of time and effort, but once market arrives it’s time to slow down a little and spend some time with friends.

And that’s exactly what I did! My first stop was at American Jane, I love to visit with Sandy, we sat for a minute and enjoyed a few sweets.

Sandy had some great tips on binding and other designers gathered around to enjoy her company.

A hug and visit with Alison who was at market to represent the amazing Basic Grey team!

Playtime was just beginning when I dropped into Vanessa Goetzen’s booth, she is one of the new Moda Designers. She had a cute little tent for us to to play in!

At Deb Strain’s booth it was all about winter playtime, her snowmen were having so much fun on the fabrics!

When I made it to Zen Chic, Bridget was not in the booth, but her delightful assistant allowed me to play with numbers.

I caught up with Bridget on Moda’s couch, probably the most playful spot at the quilt market! Moda had a photo booth there and what could be more fun than take silly pictures with your friends.

As we sat on the couch we had a chance to enjoy one of the new Moda Quilts “Building Blocks”. What a fun playtime for quilters!

On to Sandy Gervais booth, she always makes you feel so welcome, maybe it was my outfit as I felt like I fit right in as we posed with her pretend assistant.

I played, laughed and climbed the ladder with April Rosenthal in the Prairie Grass booth, another new addition to Moda’s playground.

I also got a chance to meet Amy Ellis, it was so nice to make a new friend and talk about her favorite toys.

Old friends are so special, like Joanna from Fig Tree, she even let me try on a cute new dress. I love playing dress up!

Or my good friend Pat Sloan, who wrapped me in her beautiful quilt as we took a moment to enjoy her cute wall-hanging.
