Good bye Spring Market 2008!

Quilt market = work. When you arrive you are greeted with a few drapes and poles. That’s it. For everything else you’re on your own. A scary thought when you actually look around. Stacks of boxes, suitcases, and props are all you see! Did everything make it? Did we forget to bring something? Then you realize you’re really not alone. Everyone else is in exactly the same situation. The goal is to take your own area and make it unique. We all have a blank canvas!

The end result is a huge room filled to the brim with creative ideas, exciting new things, and sensory overload!

Moda has a new line of fabric coming in September called “Heritage”. It’s a reproduction of beautiful prints taken from a vintage quilt in shades of taupe, blue and brown. In the picture above, you can see the new quilt right next to the vintage quilt. All the proceeds from this collection will be donated to charity!

Market would not be complete without a bit of the Bernina Fashion show. Be sure and enlarge this photo so you can see the trims and buttons. Do you think they have an embellishment kit available? I took this photo because I knew it was so me, I mean so you!

Bitty Kitty sat quietly on display, inside her glass house, until she saw me walk over and take a photo of the quilt below. She had a jealous tizzy! There’s another cat in the house! Poor Bitty!

The cat in this quilt captured my heart. This quilt is so creative and amazing I had to share it with you. I took a close up of the sign so you could read the story behind this quilt. It’s from the Netherlands. Thank you Heidi for sharing your creative imagination and talents.

And so, my ode to spring market comes to a close. So many memories, good friends, and wonderful customers I will never forget.

And at the end of it all, it looks almost like the beginning!

Good bye Spring Market and hello Fall! (:
