home again!

05/17

We finally made it home from quilt market last night, after a long but beautiful drive from Salt Lake City. The landscape between here and there is breathtaking, and I’m so glad I got to see it, despite the fact that I ended up with driving duty through a snowstorm that hit us as we passed through the Tahoe area. Who knew it would be snowing in May?? Well, it sure was!

Quilt market was a blast, and I loved getting to put faces with names and meet many of the customers and contacts that I’ve only known electronically before now. I got to meet some of my favorite fabric designers, and I discovered a bunch of new ones to admire as well. It felt a little like a 3-day cocktail party, and by the end my head was spinning from all the new faces and names, but I’m already looking forward to the Houston show this fall.

Here are a few photos of the booth, and as you can see, the little 10×10 space goes through a dramatic transformation during set-up. I didn’t think to take a photo before we started setting it up, so I’ve shown an “after”, just before we left. By that time, I was more than ready to just sit in a car for 12 hours!

    Serena! So great to see you on here! Thanks for the encouragement. :)

    And Marie, I hope you get to QM – I'd love to meet you! Of course, we live so close I could practically hand-deliver your fabric…

    And Kristy, I think I mentioned it on FB, but the pattern is New Look 6888… really easy!
