Quilt Market - Spring 2010

I think I am probably the LAST one to finally post about Quilt Market. What is the saying... Save the BEST for last. ;-P Just kidding. so... here it goes.

Quilt Market was great!  This time around I went with my MOM.  I was so glad she was there and I am now kicking myself because I did not get a single picture of us together... what was I thinking? Hindsight is 20/20.  We had a blast... riding the light-rail with our light-rail buddy, Kim... walked up and down Nicollet Mall street... enjoyed a night with bloggy friends at Fabric 2.0... and walked Quilt Market and helped my mom pick up lots of fun new things for her online store.

Met some great people, saw some beautiful new fabrics, patterns and MORE!
Doug Leko of Antler Quilt Design...
You can also find his Moda Bake Shop recipe here.  Very talented young man!

Meet Joanna {or should I say Miss Hepburn} and her new collection, Breakfast at Tiffany's.
I had the pleasure to get to know this mother and daughters team this market and they are just as "Sweet" as you would imagine.  I think this collection is my All time favorite collection this market... Pure.  Wonderful for boys and girls of any age!!!  THANK YOU for designing fabric for BOYS!  Authentic is my other favorite collection by this team of ladies and I must say it should become a basic... {if I can put in my two cents}.  See their video here.
Camille of Thimble Blossoms is half of the design team of Bonnie and Camille and they introduced their be-a-u-ti-ful new collection, Bliss. 
The other half of the design team is Bonnie of Cotton Way.  Bonnie and Camille are a Mother / Daughter design team for Moda.  You can check out their video here

And last but not least... this cute little picture of Camille, Me and Vanessa.  Vanessa is HILLARIOUS!  I had a blast getting to know her and finally meeting in person!  If you were at the Moda Party... you just might even caught us shaking our boo-tays on the dance floor.


  1. Thank you so much for finally posting something. I thought I was going to have to send out the coast guard to see where you were!!!

  9. Nope, you're not the last ... I still haven't posted anything since market! I'm working on it ... ... ... :-)

  10. Thanks for that tour! It looks way to overwhelming of goodness there.

    I agree about the comment for boy's fabrics - we need more! ALOT more...and not just baby boy stuff - bigger boy stuff! I'll be the first to buy it and make stuff! LOL
