May 19, 2010 Setting up for Quilt Market

Well here we are and look what greeted us! We have 4 crates for Riley Blake Designs and Brian welcomes us all with a thumbs up that everything is here. I think we're good to start setting up.

And look there's Randy with his big smile ready to roll up his sleeves and get to work.

There's Matt. We're all running to try and keep up with him. He's a whirlwind and we'll have this set up in no time at all.
Look at everyone working so hard to put the floor together. This floor helps save our feet from falling off at the end of a busy day.
Oh, and look who is across from us. It's Pie Plate Patterns. Bonnie is busy putting something together and the truth be known we just like being across from them because they have the best homemade caramels in the world. This time we brought our famous Riley Blake Designs chocolates. They're the best. We'll use our chocolates to barter for caramels. If you have ever tasted Kara Chocolates, they're yummy!

Oh, and look again. I see The Quilted Fish. These are the funnest ladies ever and if you look real close you'll see their friend that is traveling with them and is hidden in this picture. We'll use our chocolates to barter for swedish fish here.

There go the towers. Look at all those busy worker bees.
The towers are up. These are where the artists will be featured.
These are the fabric walls. We have featured 3 lines of fabric and we have used all the polka dots from each line to stretch across steel panels to create fabric walls. The rest of the fabric lines are going to be on the back towers.

These are the fabric walls going up and they are looking great!
More walls and we are getting real close to being kicked out. It's already 8:20 pm and they close at 8 pm so we are being told to get out. We're so close to getting the foundation of our booth up.

Well this is as far as we got before getting kicked out. We'll begin again in the morning. To all my friends who are following this post for Quilt Market, I hope you enjoy the journey along with me at Spring International Quilt Market 2010 straight from Minneapolis, Minnesota.

I hope you enjoy all the fabulous quilts.

Love the red and yellow.



This is the million dollar quilt. Each block represents the story behind a letter from her son who served a 2 year mission. Don't you think that is such a great idea. I love it.






I love all the hand embroidery on this quilt. It will be a classic.








This was a block exchange quilt. She did a great job of her colors and arranging of blocks. I think this quilt turned out great.







Farm Girl Vintage "Woolly Sheep"

Woolly Sheep is the last block on the  Farm Girl Vintage Friday Blog Hop Sew-Along.

It has been sew much fun sewing along  with Lori Holt, Fat Quarter Shop and all of you every Friday. 


I have a pile of super cute Farm Girl Blocks that I can't wait to start piecing together to make a fabulous quilt. 


I wanted my sheep to be white so I used low volume fabrics...I'm going to add some embroidery around the edge of the sheep to help the outline pop.

My Woolly Sheep and I  took a little field trip to Birdseye, Utah.  My sister-in-law and her husband  live on a ranch... It was the perfect spot for some  Farm Girl Vintage photos.

 Don't you love this old farm truck!

The setting was a beautiful, peaceful, tranquil day.

We were able to take these photos with the perfect backdrop for Woolly Sheep.



Farm Girl Vintage features 45 different quilt blocks  in 6″ and 12″ sizes.  There are bonus projects and quilts galore.  The instructions are visual and easy to read and understand.   There are so …

Spelling Bee Sew Along

I'm so excited to be part of the Spelling Bee Book Sew Along byLori HoltofBee in my Bonnet for Fat Quarter Shop. There is so much to LOVE about this fun book that includes all upper and lower case letters. It also features complete instructions for 100 letters, numbers, punctuation and picture blocks in 6" and 12" block size, plus 18 quilt projects!

 I used "Yes Please" fabric line by  My Mind's Eye for Riley Blake Designs. The color palette is black and off white with a touch  of rose gold. The simplicity of the colors lends itself to sophistication.

I have a fun project planned with the blocks I will be making.  Right now I have my binding by Vintage Door wrapped around my Binding Baby which is made by Shari for Doohikey Designs.

You can see how adorable my Binding Baby is and how she keeps my binding from unraveling while waiting to be used. 

My letter today is "lowercase o". It is super quick and easy. I have made several blocks as I am preparing to ma…
