Market Day #2
Show Special #2

Home From Quilt Market

I'm home. Which means that I am officially on couch vacation for at least another day or maybe two. This is my favorite place to be after I return from Quilt Market-- for those of you who have been following me for a long time you might remember that it is specifically the left corner of my couch LOL!!

I don't move from it for a few days and can only accomplish what I can do from there. Which believe it or not, is quite a lot given them my entire life is on my laptop and iphone these days. Let's just say that we eat a lot of takeout the week following Market.

But in case you are just a little bit worried, the office staff are sending out your orders like crazy so even though i look like a bump on a log, they are working overtime to get you what you need quickly! It all just moves forward without me for a while. Thank goodness.

So.... here are a few more photos of our booth in case you are not yet bored of hearing. I am so glad I got to see so many of you at the booth... since I didn't get much of a chance to go much of anywhere else. I didn't even make it over to the other side of the convention hall once this time so I missed many of my fabric friends!! Will have to catch up with you in Salt Lake ladies!

I'll be bringing hub who can handle the booth beautifully without me so I can go and hang out more! In fact we laugh, that he is better at this whole Market thing than me. He sells that stuff like it's going out of style! I tell you, I don't know how he does it. I guess it helps that he loves the product, loves the designer [blush] and loves to sell!

Okay... back to booth pics...


... back to that favorite booth corner again. As for that little pillow... well, we'll have to wait on that story for a little later.


... we had so much fun making these simple oversized daisies. I think I will post a free pattern of them really soon. They would make perfect kid room decorations. In fact that I think that is where our booth props will go once the boxes arrive back from Market.


... our little stack of fruits and yummies. New strawberry pincushion, our fig pincushion from Fresh Vintage #16 and some darling little fabric promos from MODA. Stay tuned for more about those, as we will be giving them all away on a special blog event in January. More on that later.


... and my favorite new dress pattern, Ella's Party Dress, which is at the printer as we speak. You won't believe how simple this is to make and how professional the outcome is! Can't wait to send it out to you all!

Hope you enjoyed the shots. Stay tuned for the next post [in another hour or so] where we will show you the next kit special from our SHOWSPECIALS series.

Talk to you soon.




So nice to see all that yumminess Joanna...thanks for sharing. I so love the look of that little cushion and Ella's dres is darling.
Hugs Dawn x x

The booth looks the oversized daisies! I might have to make one of those to decorate my sewing room!

Hope we'll hear more about that (ladybug?) quilt pictured behind the giant flower, too! It's adorable :)

Joanna - Would love to know more about the quilt on the right side of the Ella's Party Dress photo -- with the banner-like triangles in rows. Is there a name for the pattern or where it originated?

Portland, Oregon

as always inspiring...

Welcome home ,have a good rest because I know you will have lots of orders. Beautiful booth and I love the big daisies too. Blessings Sandra

I would LOVE to make the oversized daisies!

I was away for the weekend and come home to the newest Fig tree club quilt kit. I can see January is going to be a Fig Tree extravagansa! (3 ready to cut and the cute hexagon quilt a long Jaybird did months ago in Fig tree just waiting to be laid out! Can't wait to see what else you have to show off!

I had to refresh the page 2 times to view this page for some reason, however, the information here was worth the wait.
