Quilt Market

It's day two of quilt market and because of the lapse in blogger I haven't been able to report all the goings on. It's busy, busy, busy, so a quick update. It's been amazing to meet all those loyal followers in the flesh. I'm constantly bumping into people in the aisles who come and visit the blog and really exist in real life! So much fun!!
A quick peek at part of the Robert Kaufman booth, the Kona solids and the Modern Quilt Guild Challenge quilts. KCMQG is well represented and I'm thrilled to see our quilts being showcased! Congrats MQG and KCMQG! More pics soon.
On thing I found intriguing was the back of the Michael Miller booth with their walls of inspiration from architechture, interior design and fashion. Very modern and kind of non quilty. Totally inspiring.
I'm pinching myself. Am I really here? So many exciting things to tell you and show you. More later!

I can just imagine the excitement! I'd love to go one day soon :) I'm in love with the Michael Miller booth's inspiration wall... yellow / mustard and grey are one of my fave combos!

Jacquie, want to meet the quilter whose blue quilt is smack in the center of your first photo? She is Rachel Griffith of ps I quilt, and her quilt is "escapade - the poseidon version" She blogged about it here:

Jacquie! It was such a blast to meet you. You are even more wonderful in real life. It absolutely made my day when you introduced yourself. I feel so lucky to have won my own copy of the Block Party book! I think it's my favorite treasure I took away from Market. Next to meeting such fun people IRL. Loved it!

I hope you enjoyed every moment...
