Market Wrap-up

Are you tired of Market pictures yet?  Hope not.  There’s still more fun!

I meet Tiffany Jenkins at Spring Quilt Market in Minneapolis.  She’s delightful and so sweet!  She specializes in bags but introduced some fun new quilt patterns at Market this year.  Amber loves her bag patterns and is working on the “Shore Bag” for a future class in the studio.  It’s the bag on the back wall with the blue stripes.  It’s so cute!  I think I may need to take the class!  :-)  More on that soon.

The Quilted Fish booth was full of fun!  Amanda Herring designs fabric and patterns and has a new diamond ruler out for making different types of diamond quilts.  We’ve ordered them for the studio and I can’t wait for them to arrive and start playing with it.  I’ve always wanted to make a diamond quilt and this ruler gives you lots of options.

I also found a new addiction while visiting ~ I guess I’m one of the few people who have never tried a “Swedish Fish”.  They are sooooo yummy.  Just what I needed – another addiction related to sugar.  Sigh.  When she found out I’d never had one before, she grabbed a handful of them and dropped them in my bag.  :-)  Yes I shared!

If you had the chance to go to Market, what would you most like to see?  Is there a certian designer you’d like to meet or product you’d like to check into, or……. I’d like to know.

First time I had a corner booth.  I likes the exposure you get from being on a corner.

On set up day we were hauling in the items for our booth, when I turned around to head back out for another load this is what I saw.

Recognize the quilt on the banner?  That’s the quilt I designed and made for Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe’s article in Quilt Sampler Magazine when they were chosen as one of America’s Top Ten quilt shops a couple years ago.  It was chosen for the cover of the issue.  It was all very exciting and fun to see it again.  I was honored that they were using it in their booth.

There was as really cute display of Pet Poufs and stuffed dogs in the EE Schenck’s booth (another distributor) and I thought I had a picture of it but I guess not.  They used three poufs and three dogs and pinned them on a wall in a cascading pattern.  It was really cute.  Sorry I don’t have a pic.

I’d love to know which project in the Sweet Treasures booth is your favorite?
