I enjoyed seeing so many friends at market. It's fun to see all the new fabric, books, notions and all things quilty but I think my favorite part is seeing friends. I missed Diane Tomlinson in the F&W booth she was out and about in market. I tried a couple of times but my timing was off. So I left the little gift I had for her with one of the other reps in the booth. I got a nice email shortly thereafter thanking me for my treat saying she couldn't wait to taste it. Whoa! I quickly emailed her back telling her she would not think I was so sweet if she tasted this treat. It was soap not candy. We had a good laugh on that one.
This quilty friend was also in the F&W booth. It is my Modern Gems quilt and will be in the upcoming Quiltmaker magazine.
I was delighted to see Lisa Chin at the Misty Fuse booth. Lisa doesn't live to far from me but I usually only get to see her at events like Market. Why is that? Lisa is a great fiber artist. I'm looking forward to taking a class from her at Quilt Fest this fall.
It is always a delight to see Deonn. She was featuring the new solids line in the Riley Blake booth. They had a fun coloring contest going on. And did you notice the fun packaging for those great Riley Blake solids. A crayon box, how cute is that?
These cuties, also in the Riley Blake booth, are one of my young women from a few years back. You can find a pic of us at girls camp here. Well she is all grown up and designing fabric with her sister under the name Sugar Sisters. And as if that was not enough their booth took first place as a single booth. I can't tell you how thrilled I am for her and proud too! Way to go Kelsey!
