Yes, home again after a wonderful three weeks in the USA with Jo.
Many of you may have followed our travels and misadventures on Facebook, but for the rest of you here’s a few pics to try and show you just how big & exciting Quilt market is.
This is how our booth looked when we first rolled out suitcases in..not much to work with
after two days of building, sticking, pinning, tweaking and finalising we managed to get it to look like this…My aim was to show off my two new fabric range patterns at this endBlock of the months and other favourites hung here on my special multiple quilt rack display (which I think I need to have patented – half of the traffic to my booth was stores and other vendors photographing the hanging idea) Emma and Paul?This was my redwork display – and a little display from One Day in May – which was well received
and on my outer wall were all of the projects from the new book Simply Applique…I also had to make quilts and displays for my two fabric ranges in the Red Rooster booth. Thanks to my lovely friend Twyla for making the Sunshine & Daisies quilt – this is my free pattern for the Primrose Sands fabric line and is available to you all here.
I was launching this bundle of gorgeousness! and I am so excited to say that EVERYBODY else also loved it! I am so lucky to have been allowed a basics range that will be so useable and it looked just soooo pretty…To give you an idea this pic below shows about one eighth of the show floor. Yes 26 rows of overwhelming inspiration and stitchy goodness….
I've got sooo much more to show and tell you along with all the new patterns I managed to get done before I left…
but for now, just letting you know… these greeted me as I arrived home… yes the books are here!
so to keep the jetlag at bay I spent last night signing all of the preorders… not too late for a signed copy. Just order and leave a comment asking for it to be personally signed for you.
hugs for today…
