Well, I guess it’s time to dust off the old blog and catch all of you up with what we’ve been doing. I can’t believe the last post was from before market, it seems like it was soooo long ago cause we have been soooo busy! Let’s see, where do I begin, I guess Market would be a good place.
This year’s Spring Quilt Market was in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It was my first time visiting Pittsburgh and I was pleasantly surprised at what a beautiful city it is. For those of you that have never been there, it is surrounded by three rivers, The Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio and beyond that is lush green forest. I didn’t really get any good pictures of the city because it was pretty cold and rainy the whole time we were there, but it seemed like a neat place.
Market was fun and BUSY as usual. This year we were in the most amazing location. We were next door to Primitive Gatherings and Laundry Basket Quilts and two booths away from Moda Fabrics, and if you don’t know, all three of those are pretty much “Quilt Market Royalty!” We were also next door to some other California girls you might know, Joan with “Bits and Pieces by Joan,” Cathy with “Heart to Hand,” and Suzanne with “Suzanne’s Art House,” they made Market super fun! We had our own little So Cal aisle.
“Here are some pictures of our booth… it’s so hard to get more pictures at Market, I try every time but we always end up being too busy, (which is a good thing.)
Here’s a pic of Kathy with some quilty celebrities!
And here is my lost luggage delivered a couple days after we got back….
Thank goodness!!! It was the bag with the wool!
I think we took maybe a day and a half to rest from Market and got to work right away on finishing up the new pincushion book we’ve had in the works.
It’s done!! All printed and ready to ship. We’ve already shipped out quite a few so make sure you check with your local quilt store to see if they carry it.
I LOVE the way it turned out! I think I might even like it better than the first one.
Wow, that’s a lot of books!
We are working on some really exciting things right now, possibly two new books and some other super fun projects. Check back again soon for more updates!
