Man, us girls had a blast at Market…..Just imagine a ton of people together sharing a common love for something. Ahh, wouldn’t the world be a better place if we all quilted? (and loved fabric??) Teeheeheh, I know not that funny….but really. It was pretty cool to get to be with so many in the industry, hoping beyond hope that some of their creativity would rub off on you! (that was me anyway.)
We had so much fun talking with the designers and hearing about all the things that inspire them…..the new fabric. Oh, the new fabric. It was Heaven I tell you. Heather Bailey, literally made my heart skip a beat. Her booth was amazing. Her fabric line was AMAZING….shoot, she is just one creative power house! I had to buy her line. It is called Nicey Jane. (named after her husbands Great Aunt (?) I think) She has a few new patterns coming out as well! (So cute) And we are making a big order of her felt. The colors are delicious! Not sure if you know this, but Westminster is going to be selling their stuff in the pre-cuts. SO exciting! Don’t worry… I stocked up on it, so you will be sure to get what you need!
Oh, and Anna Maria Horner…..can I just say WOW. She is gorgeous. I mean, beyond beautiful….her baby is a sweetie too! 🙂 Her fabric this time was beautiful Voile’s and Dobby Dots. More for dresses and things, but it is gorgeous. If you are a seamstress it will be divine to work with! It is so soft and light….It would also make a gorgeous lighter quilt. Really, you just have to touch this stuff.
I have so much more to tell you about. I have pictures and videos (like a million) and I can’t wait to show you everything!
