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.







Quilt Petite Blog Hop

I am super excited to share what I have made from  Sedef's new book called  "Quilt Petite"  published by Tuva Publishing.

This book is filled with charming, whimsical and quaint projects that are perfect for homemade gifts or for decorating your home. *** Sedef has added details of care and love to each page of  "Quilt Petite"

I used "On Trend" fabric designed by Jen Allyson  for Riley Blake Designs.

I chose to make the Hexie Doll Quilt on page 35. The first thing I needed to do was prepare the  (39) 1 1/2" hexies for paper piecing.

I had fun deciding which prints to fussy cut for the hexies.

Sedef has you hand-quilt around each hexie... which gives this project the charming handmade touch.

I used Shari's Binding Babies to keep my binding organized and cute while I finished my hand sewing.  You can find more information about these here. I named my cute babies Thelma and Louise.

I LOVE how this Hexie Doll Quiltturned out!!!  I

Goldilocks Fabric Tour

Goldilocks Fabric Tour
Jill Howarth has designed a darling fabric line  based around the beloved storybook of  Goldilocks and the three bears.  Her eye for detail and color choices  make this line so sweet.

Jill designs for Riley Blake Designs and  you can find her whole collection  of adorable prints here...

Fabric always inspires my designs and I couldn't  help myself...I had to make my grand daughters  another cute mini quilt for  their doll bed...they like to play with when they visit.

These are 3" finished mini houses.  I like to think Goldilocks would have played  with the three bears in each of these cute houses:)

Notice the cute mushrooms, flowers,  bears and Goldilocks, of course.

The little girls are going to spend hours  of fun remaking this bed and using  this cute mini Goldilocks House quilt to cover their dolls. *** I was able to fussy cut some of the  cute motifs so they showed in the mini houses.  You could play I-spy and te
