Are you sick of us yet?
Wow. Kara did such a fantastic job of covering Quilt Market that it really was like having you all right there with us. We loved hearing about the things you liked as we went along. Thank you for tagging along!
If you missed Kara's photos and commentary you can check it out on Strawberry Patches' Facebook page.
Here are just a few more photos that I took throughout the three days. Hope you can stand just a few more...
Miss Pam Kitty and her daughter Frankie send you all their love.
I totally freaked over these pink and red fans. Love them! Do you see those pot holders and oven mit tucked in among the hearts? They're all made from Pam's current line and what I love is that they work wonderfully with her next line, Pam Kitty Love. She's added black which makes everything pop. We'll be doing a block of the month next year using this exciting new collection.
Here's Camille and her mom Bonnie with their new line for Moda, Marmalade. (Yes, we bought it all and
will be kitting this big block quilt).
This stunning block of the month quilt is from Laundry Basket Quilts. The cool thing is that all of the fusible shapes are precut with a laser so all you have to do is iron them down and away you go. We'll have these kits available in September.
Here's Anna Maria Horner with her cute hubby. I think we should make a new rule that you can't be young, cute and talented. So not fair.
I always look forward to seeing Alexander Henry's booth. This pile of chairs features fabrics from their new lines. LOVED it!
Amy Butler's booth. We saw lots of those stacking floor cushions this time.
A Nancy Halvorsen quilt from her new book, Christmas Favorites. Annette is kitting this quilt as I type. Let us know if you want one since we can only do a limited number. Our kits are identical to Nancy's samples by the way.
This vignette is from Nancy's book Curiosities and Mischief. I love that it features projects for both boys and girls.
Me and My Sister for Moda
All three of us loved this quilt! It's a wonderful combination of flannel and wool and will be a block of the month this fall. Here's a close up...
Every time I walked by this Scottie Dog quilt in the Maywood booth
I felt myself falling in love with it just a little more. It's machine appliqued using Maywood's super soft Woolie Flannel. So precious!
Sarah Jane won the Creativity Award for this booth design. We bought most of the pieces in this boy or girl pirate group. Love the little lighted bunks
and this pillow...
This rug was so clever.
Does anyone know what that plastic stuff is that they knotted the fabric too? I so want to copy this!
Now that you've made it through my photos I want to reward one lucky reader with a little goody bag.
Robert Kaufman was so kind to give us a copy of We Love Color by Susanne Woods so I thought it would be fun to share it along with a few other goodies. I've included a bundle of two inch squares of each of the twenty eight new Kona solids along with Moda's forty two piece collection of Bonnie and Camille's Marmalade. I've added a big box of assorted Mettler sewing threads and three charm packs of Java Batiks from Galaxy and put them all in a fun tote by Moda. If you'd like to win just tell me what you liked best of the things Kara shared on Facebook.
Hopefully I can pick a winner sometime next week from Spain!
Bill and I leave for an overnight stay in Los Angeles Wednesday after work then fly out bright and early on Thursday to Miami then on to Barcelona. I've packed my camera and computer so I can take you all along with us.
I sure hope you all like tapas and sangria!
