Spring Quilt Market 2011

Oh my goodness, what a whirlwind the last week has been. I met so many wonderful people and saw so many beautiful quilts.  I’m in awe of it all!  Hugs, hugs, and more hugs;  I think that’s what quilt market is about!  Salt Lake City I miss you already, but I have to say it feels good to be home.  The greeting committee that met me at the front door today made sure I was covered in wet sloppy kisses in no time at all. I got a hug and a kiss from my husband too, but there’s nothing like dog kisses mixed with a little cat fur!

Speaking of dogs and cats, I can finally show you REAL pictures of my newest block of the month Raining Cats and Dogs!  This is the first market I’ve attended without a complete block of the month!  I have to say it felt really strange.  I wanted so much to show it off, but we do what we have to do.  Fabric arrived very late and for some of the fabrics is was a miracle they arrived at all!   I brought along as much of the quilt as I could to quilt market and gave out promises that the end result would be worth the wait.

Take a close-up look at these blocks and picture them quilted with embellishments added.  Picture little button door knobs and button trimmed collars!  I’m loving working on this quilt and I hope you will too!

Plaids, stripes and dots are perfect for cats and dogs!  If I counted right there are 21 cats and dogs on the quilt and a few umbrellas too…

…along with a kitty hotel…

…and of course I didn’t leave out the dogs!  They have a four star hotel complete with spa and gym!

You’ll see kittens playing in the vines…

…and playing in the catnip too!

I’ll be putting this quilt together this week and I’ll show you more photos as I do.  Then it’s off to the quilter for Raining Cats and Dogs and before you know it the real quilt will be ready!  A few wonderful quilt shops are starting to show the virtual picture and are taking sign-ups.  Don’t miss out because the fabric is limited.   You’ll see the quilt on my blog as I work along.  I hope you love what’s to come!

I’ve missed you all!  I’ll be back to my regular blogging this week and I’ll tell you all about market.  I have lots of photos to share with you!  I can’t wait!
