Welcome To Our Family

“Welcome to our family”!  Those are THE most wonderful words you can ever hear at a quilt market and the owner of the boots you saw in the last picture said them to me!  Me!!!  The boots came all the way from Dallas of course and belong to Mr. Mark Dunn, the President and owner of Moda Fabrics!

And those cute little black sandals belong to Cheryl Freydberg, the Design Director of Moda Fabrics!

Moda is amazing, the people are so warm and friendly, and the company?  Well, we all love Moda Fabric don’t we?

If you’d like to know more about how Moda operates you can watch this  video that tells you all about it!  Just click here and you’ll be amazed!

I was surrounded by the most talented designers.  Moda designers who have created all the lines we’ve come to love.  To say I was in heaven would be an understatement!

Here are just a few of the booths!

Right across from me was the talented Kathy Schmitz. I watched her hand draw a design on the floor of her booth.  She got down on the floor and drew! You can see a bit of it in the photo.

And the wonderful Lynne Hagmeier from Kansas Troubles!  She is as warm and friendly as she is talented!

And the other shoes in the photo from yesterday belong the the beautiful, sweet Edyta from Laundry Basket Quilts!

And the ever famous sister team Minnick & Simpson.  Enlarge this picture and take a look at the applique quilt on the right. It’s adorable!

Of course every time I walked by Me & My Sister’s booth it was busy.  I finally just took a picture, customers and all!

I wasn’t the only new Moda designer at this market.  Lisel from Oliver & S was a new designer too!  She has the cutest fabric line called “City Weekend” and it includes some of the most beautiful interlock knits for clothing!

And what would Moda be without Joanna and Camille?

I managed to get this photo of Camille taking a picture of Joanna and Eric in the Fig Tree booth. Both Camille and Joanna are as pretty as their fabric lines!

And Karla from Sweet Water, oh how I love their fabric!

I missed a few Moda designer booths, but hopefully I can get them in the next few day to share with you.  Somewhere I have a photo of me and the oh so lovely Kate Spain!


Next post I’ll tell you all about my new Fabric Line “Lily & Will”!

Hugs everyone!
