Fall Quilt Market Day 3

Today I just want to roam the many isles & see what catches my eye. I am on the look for new Block of the Month Programs, patterns for quilts ,purses, aprons & new gadgets! Wow, there is a lot to choose from! Our favorites are all exhibiting & have beautiful new things- Laundry Basket Quilts, Serendipity, Amy Butler, Threaded Pear, Kansas City Star.... And the new fabrics for 2009 are awesome. So I think we all need to make atleast 2 quilts from our stash before the new year, because you are going to love what's coming in March of 2009! Well, tonight I return home- it's been fun! Can't wait to share more with you at the shop.

Day 2 Fall Quilt Market

Well Day 2 takes me to the Market floor where I have over 2500 vendors to visit! Moda's new Honey Buns (1.5" rolls of fabric) are a big hit as the pair up with thier jelly rolls & charm packs for some great new patterns. Lots of childrens clothing designs from the new younger designers. Makes me wish my Kate was a litle girl again! Boy I could have some fun! Here is a picture of Amy Butler showing us her adorable kimono baby outfit from her new book Sewing for Little Ones. Well time to get some rest, tomorrow is a new day! GO PHILLIES!
