Quilt market day 1

What a hectic time last night at Sample Spree. It was all worth it, though, because we got some great fat quarter bundles to show you. Generally, the only time we can buy fat quarter bundles here is during Sample Spree. Of course, not every line or every fabric manufacturer has bundles.

Moda never lets us down.

We were very fortunate to get Jo Morton bundles......they sold out in 10 minutes.

After a good breakfast (believe me, we walked that breakfast off quickly!) and armed with our rolling Tutto suitcases, show books, and comfortable walking shoes, we began our day. Since we have been here before, we know to visit the booths that are most interesting to us first. It's common for vendors to sell out quickly.
Valdani was on the list. We are bringing back some yummy new colors.

The Primitive Gatherings booth is always packed so that was a priority. We are bringing back some great new patterns by Lisa.

You just never know what you will see at market.

Yes. That is a real camper.....but not a real fire for cooking s'mores.

A visit with Alma and Barb of Blackbird Designs is always a MUST do. They have a new book coming out in December. We placed our order so should receive our shipment as soon as the ink has dried on the books. It will make a nice gift to yourself or a friend.

.......and just when we thought we'd seen it all, we ran across this.....

Just in case you are wondering......we passed on that one.

Tomorrow we have appointments to sit and look at fabric. Of course, when we see a good reproduction line we want to buy it all. It'll be a fun day!



  1. Love the dark Valdani threads. Sounds like you are having way too much fun.

  2. The Blackbird Designs quilts caught my attention. Beautiful! Thank you for sharing.
