Quilt market day 2

Today was our day to look at fabric with our fabric reps. Of course, we ordered some Moda. It'll be torture to wait until next year for arrival. We really liked Kim Diehl's line from Henry Glass and Judy Rothermel's 25th anniversary line. Jo Morton also has some very nice prints that would work well with what we already have.

We were very disappointed many of our favorite designers aren't at market. No Crabapple Hill, Renee Nanneman, Buttermilk Basin, Heart to Hand, Reets Rags, JoAnn Mullaly, or Hatched and Patched. We hope everything is ok with them and they will make it to the spring market in Portland. Meanwhile, we will be contacting them to look at new designs.

One thing we wanted to accomplish while we were here was to find some new pieced patterns. Yes, we will still be heavy into appliqué, but we feel its time to branch out and offer more choices for those who enjoy piecing. We found a couple patterns we think will work very well.

We will have more info at our After Market Party this Saturday about our new Buggy Barn club. We did pick up several copies of their new book.

One of the most exciting tidbits we learned today is that 3 of Yoko Saito's Books are being translated to English. The first, Scandinavian Quilts, will be available in November. We saw a preview copy and it is wonderful.

My clock says its 10:19 p.m. Yikes! Way past my bedtime. I'll be back tomorrow with more photos.
