Market!


Okay - since this was my first time going to Market I have to say that I was completely overwhelmed - seriously - so much so that I didn't take nearly as many pictures as I wanted. But - I managed to snap the craziness of Sample Spree on my phone. Just imagine a million woman (I saw a few men) running like crazy to snatch up new fabric fast, it was like Disneyland at its worst with wall to wall people times ten! Seriously - 15 minutes - $500 later and I was like - get me out of here!


Moda had a free photo booth and my partner in crime, aka Mom was there with me to take it all in. We had so much fun!


We ran into Susie - a long time friend and punch needle expert - she always makes us laugh - got to love her scissor head! Ha!


I met Angela in Julie's booth. Angela is an incredible long arm quilter, so it was great to talk to her!


Amber is a doll! I have gotten to know Amber a little bit over blogging, so it was great to meet her. She is as nice as can be! Her pattern line is Gigi's Thimble and she has some adorable patterns.


Here I am with my doll block for the Riley Blake "All Dolled Up" quilt. These quilts were adorable!


Here is a close up of the block - I am not sure who quilted this, but they did a fabulous job!


I couldn't go to Market without meeting Camille - she is so AMAZING - she is as genuine as I imagined her to be and it was so great to finally meet her.


Just for laughs!

Camille's booth was beautiful and her new patterns and new fabric Ruby are gorgeous. I happened to get a couple of FQB's of Ruby during Sample Spree and I am going to use one for a new design. YAY!! I can't wait to cut into it.

And for all you that want to know - we have ordered a ton of Ruby precuts and they are available for pre-purchase. Get them while you can! We have also ordered all of the new Moda lines that are coming out through October!

Market was so fun - I had a great time, but the truth is there was so much to see that I just didn't see it all - I was a little overwhelmed with how much there was. Row after row of amazing booths and talented people. I really wish I would have gotten more pictures, maybe next time?

Hmm... had I known that picture would make it on your blog, I would have tried to not look like such a dweeb!

It was so fun to meet you, now more than ever we need to get together for lunch and chatting. Yes??
