Quilt Market and Festival Goodies

The last couple of weeks have been wild! First up was Quilt Market... I spent Friday, Saturday, and Monday walking the floor, attending dinners and mixers, and taking a class. Tuesday morning I packed a suitcase and headed out to Atlanta... back home to Houston just over 48 hours later. Then it was back to Quilt Festival Friday and the HMQG Festival meet-up Saturday night.

But I came home from both Market and Festival with lots of goodies, so I guess I can't really complain. 

Quilt Market 2013

From Market: Terra Australis by Emma Jean Jansen for Ella Blue, Garden by Ellen Luckett Baker for Kokka, Botanics by Carolyn Friedlander for Robert Kaufman, Catnap by Lizzy House for Andover, Bloc_Loc rulers, and assorted books, magazines and Moda mini-charms.

I spent most of my Friday at Festival with Jacey and Chawne... and you know what... I buy lots more when I'm shopping with other people. But it all works out, because I'm also a terrible influence and will be the first to insist you NEED that fabric you're looking at!

Quilt Festival 2013

The most amazing finds from Festival were out of print Japanese linen (a gift from Chawne) and a yard of original Flea Market Fancy (for $6!) Now to find some space in the sewing room!
