I can’t even stand it anymore, I have to show you this.First off, I have to say I’m biased a bit toward this fabric. I mean, I did the printing and website for Sarah Jane for nearly 2 years. Not to mention that Sarah is one of my sweetest, most talented friends, and she’s right here in town with me! So really, I HAD to make something from her first fabric line, Children at Play, for Michael Miller.
And if you must know, I couldn’t just stop at one something. I mean, there’s a boy colorway and a girl colorway. What’s a quilter to do?
Plus, this quilt was BEGGING for some old style topstitching. Because again, this fabric was just too darling not to.
Both versions should be quilted, bound, (and ironed, ahem) in the next few days, and then, more (better) pictures. Promise.
What are YOU working on right now?
I spent 5 straight days in about 80 square feet.
My mom & a few good friends were there to force me to talk, and remind me to eat.
If I had my way, I probably would have sat in the corner and only spoke when spoken to.
But I’m so glad I didn’t.
There were too many amazing people to meet to stay locked up in my introverted-ness.
And meet them, I did. (Pictures of friends, soon.)
Didn’t get pictures of other booths, because I couldn’t really leave mine for more than a few minutes at a time. (But I think there are enough pictures floating around out there that you’ll get to see the amazing talent going on…)
One quilt market down, dozens to go.
Somehow, I think this was the hardest and it will all get easier from here on out, because I know what to expect.
Quilt market=made of awesome.
Size options, a table topper, a bag, and a baby playmat? My my, branching out.
I love them all, but seriously? That Russian Rubix is to DIE for up close and in real life–and that Josephine Kimberling knows how to make some gorgeous fabric. (I feel like I’m picking a favorite child.)
Get them while they’re hot. First 10 orders get a free surprise with their order, cause I love you guys.
They’re in the shop.
Spotlights on each pattern after market (wish me luck).
Do you love them as much as I do?
PS: If you’re coming to market, come see me in booth #2243!
I’ve been in a cave for the last 2 weeks. Well, that’s how it feels, anyway. I’ve been finalizing things for quilt market, and believe me when I tell you that as a first timer exhibiting, I’m in WAY over my head. Seriously, there are so many things I had never considered. Makes me respect the people who do this twice a year so. much. more. It’s been a learning process, for sure.
It’s been fun, too, though. I’ve had a great time helping my mom, who is new to quilting, learn how to make a simple project from one of the new patterns.
Oh! You want to see the new patterns?
I know, I know, I told you’d I’d start showing off (last) Monday.
Remember how I said I was in over my head?
Yeah. Hence the no posting this week.
Next week? New patterns galore. (I mean it this time.)
Thanks for all the love and encouragement, guys.
Makes all this cave dwelling worth it.
PS: The winner of the awesome Just Dandy bundle is Sharon, who said
Right now I am crazy for any browns and blues or pinks. I love the browns and all the fabric in this line.
Congratulations! Can’t wait to see what you do with it! Email me with your address at email@example.com (And if you’re looking for a project to use it on, I happen to know a beautiful throw can be made using it. Check back on Monday!)
