Quilt Market 2011

It was my first Quilt Market! I loved it - I loved everything about it - except that my camera battery died, and I didn't get all the photos I wanted. Above I had to get a picture in the yummy Kona Cottons booths. And the rest of my photos are of the ADORNit booth where I spent Friday meeting customers and WRITING ORDERS!

ADORNit's new Long Live Vintage line just hanging out at Quilt Market.

Carolee, company owner, and her daughters Alison and Georgana. They worked so hard to put the booth together and make it appealing. Their hard work has paid off with a great response and three very busy days at market.

Tammy Anderson, our graphic designer, with her delightful appliqued "Bugs Away" quilt from the new (and very cute) Bugaboo fabric line...which Tammy designed. The papers are coordinating scrapbook papers also by Tammy. This girl does it all from drawing the art to creating the graphic design to the final (tiny) stitch on her quilt's applique and binding.

I'm excited that my "Hip to be Square" quilt is at Quilt Market - it's made from the Vintage Groove line. The pink and white and brown quilt is Tammy's

Janet's rag quilt from the Bugaboo line is hanging on the right - that's Janet enjoying visiting with a customer.

Alison is one of the most creative people I've ever met! She brings that creativity to making a fun and unusual booth and to the graphic design she does. She also runs ADORNit's clothing and accessory boutique.

I grabbed a picture of Kris and Kim, the DIY Dish girls as they were walking the floor with Tammy. They're planning to feature a project by ADORNit on their cute website soon.

Here's my pinwheel quilt hanging at the booth. The pinwheel is my favorite quilt block to make, and I can't wait to start a new pinwheel quilt that's in the back of my mind using all of the ADORNit fabrics that have gray in them.

Yup - here's me with the girls from Purl Soho fabric shop. When Scott and I went to NYC last year, one of my main goals was to find the Purl Soho shop which we did. I bought some fat quarters and buttons. I've always been inspired by their blog... The Purl Bee and love what they're doing to promote quilting to younger and urban quilters.
