My Head Is Spinning-Day 1

It was a whirlwind weekend in Houston at the Fall International Quilt Market. There was so much anticipation leading up to it and now it's all over in a blink. My head is just spinning at all the new fabrics, patterns and products I saw. Not to mention all the fabulous people I met and saw again. While it was a little hard on the husband and kids, it sure was a needed little break for me.
I arrived early Friday afternoon, after a very early and long flight. I didn't know how I was going to make it through the rest of the day. I met my good pals Jonah and Myrinda at the airport and off we went. First stop: Schoolhouse Series. We got there right in time to listen to Kathy Miller, Patty Young and Paula Prass speak about their new lines and all that is new with Michael Miller Fabrics.
Then we were off to the Fabric 2.0 Meet and Greet hosted by Caroline DeVoy of J. Caroline Creative, Kathy Miller, Lissa Alexander of Moda Fabrics and Christina Batch-Lee of Etsy. It was a fun night of schmoozing, laughing and eating.

After the party, we were off to the Sample Spree. Can I just say, "Pure craziness!!" We had gotten there a little late, so I guess things had quieted down a bit, but you couldn't tell. I can only imagine what it was like when the doors opened! There were ladies with bags full of loot! Some even had to drag them because they had so much stuff! By this time, I was so pooped, I didn't even buy anything. That's ok. I made up for it in the next three days.

That's it for now. I'll be back to tell the tales of the rest of the weekend. And stay tuned for some fun little bloggy Quilt Market giveaways!

Busy Times

We're only a week into October and it's already been non-stop. First, I was busy working on a new set to list on Ebay with my design group ODOD, for a little mini-launch that's all about my favorite - polka dots! I was half-way through the outfit, when I got lucky enough to get hooked up with the wonderfully warm and fun Paula Prass, through Patty of Modkid. Paula has a new fabric line debuting at International Quilt Market in Houston at the end of this month called Flights of Fancy for Michael Miller Fabrics. Paula was in need of some sample sewers for the show asap! Paula contacted me and let me know what she was looking for and no sooner had I received a fun box full of her beautiful new fabrics, I was off sewing!
Turns out, she needed the sample sets by the 13th!! I set off on a feverish pace through the weekend and sent off a box yesterday! Here's a little sneak of what was in the box.
I still have more samples to make for Paula, but will be taking them along with me to Quilt Market in a few weeks. A few weeks?? Ack! I can't believe it's coming up so quickly! I have so much more I need to get done before then.
Off to finish my polka dot set!
