My Daughter's First Quilt

True happiness is when your daughter finally makes her first quilt!

I think true happiness is watching your daughter finally make her 1st quilt! Ok, so she is almost 24, but she did it! This quilt is a graduation present for her boyfriend John. It is a Turning Twenty in brushed plaids by MODA. The dogs had a big part in the quilt.....they were guilty of eating a block or two!

Spring Quilt Market 2011

Day 3 at Spring Quilt Market, Salt Lake City Utah

I finally caught up with Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts in her booth. A spectacular booth! Julie's quilts were showcased all over the market floor!

A visit with Jo Morton! Her new book , Banner Day will be out any day now! And a new small fabric pallet called Jo's Favorites will be available soon. This collection of red & white prints was inspired after Jo's visited to the Red & White Exhibit in NYC in March 2011.

As usual, bags & purses were a very hot item! I was particularly taken by this new talented designer, Jen Giddens.

Next stop.....home!
