I have some special treats from International Quilt Market. Although it was close to Halloween, these treats are not the “trick or treat” kind. They are simply treats to enjoy!
I visited with my friend, Anna Marie Horner, who designs fabrics for Free Spirit. Anna had some exciting news. She is expecting a new little one. And while she was at Quilt Market, she received more exciting news. Her booth won “best booth” for the 2nd time in a row. Gee, Anna, you are really a superwoman!
Gina Halladay is the owner of Threaded Pear, a pattern company and is in her beautiful booth. In addition, she is the author of the fabulous blog, Quilter’s Buzz. Gina also had some good news. She has purchased a quilt shop, so in addition to her blog, a machine quilting dealership and pattern company, she will have a retail shop. I think Gina qualifies as another superwoman.
And in addition to old friends, I met up with a new friend who I met through Twitter. Lani Padilla owns thequiltshope.net, an online quilt shop. Its fun to meet a Twitter friend in person! (along with her hubby, Sam!)
While walking the show, I saw the most beautiful flowers – the large fabric flowers that were across the top front of the booth of Daisy & Dell. The flowers were a really neat display. Daisy & Dell is a pattern company from Cypress, TX owed by Pat Bruce. I love flowers and the fact that these were fabric instead of real, means that they live forever.
I still have more to show from Quilt Market – check backfor more gorgeous exhibit quilts.
