Int’l Quilt Market, Part 3 from Art and Quilting in Camden

And yes, there was even more fun stuff at Market…see why I never got to the quilts? (Previous two posts have more good stuff.)

Loved the Robert Kaufmann display, especially the Library Pockets, which of course made me think of my friend Kate C. who is the Bowdoinham town librarian and wonderfully crafty and artful!
Can’t you just see this for a teacher’s room, or library, or your studio, or a busy family?

The artwork in these fabrics made me stop in my tracks! I snagged a brochure ...

So I’ll start at the beginning…with one detour: I sold a quilt at Festival after all! I’ll post on that in a few days (I shared on FB), but first let’s start with Market. And read to the end for the big surprise!

I arrived on Sunday of Quilt Market–usually I fly in on Tuesday or Monday and begin ...

Free Pattern Alert and Quilt Market from Pieced Brain

I returned home from Quilt Market in Houston last night, exhausted and energized at the same time. My feet are still recovering from having walked the enormous convention center time and time again as I met with current clients, forged new relationships, and visited with old and new friends.

This is my design for the upcoming Blank Quilting collection Aziza. Love those colors and textures! The Aziza collection will be shipping in April, and the pattern is already available for download. Look at some of the gorgeous fabrics I used:

Fall Quilt Market 2019 - My Little Contributions from Creatin' in the Sticks

I will admit, I am a little (lot) bummed I am not at quilt market
this weekend.
I went back and forth about whether to go or not.

The decision to stay was based on the fact that I would have to go by myself

it's over in the Thermoweb booth #1848.
