Spring Quilt Market in Salt Lake City is Big, scary, overwhelming, inspirational, fun, social, a must-see must-do experience and I am so very glad I got the opportunity to go. I will admit I was terrified to go. I am not someone who naturally gravitates to large groups. Quilt market definitely tested my courage, but I went and feel like it was a fantastic experience.
I found the easiest way to conquer market was to have a plan. Yesterday, I walked up and down each aisle, trying to take it all in. Today, I made a plan, listed my targets and checked each spot off of my list, one by one.
Here is Joel Dewberry’s new line displayed at his [amazing] booth:
I’ll probably write an entire post on Heirloom, but the colors are so intense, rich and amazing. I can’t wait to sew with it. His displays were flawless and I can so see these colors making me smile laying on a bed or as a dress or handbag.
Then, I took a bunch of pictures of Sandi Henderson’s new line and her booth for a blog reader (who left me a comment! I love comments!) You can find TONS on flickr, but for this post, I’ll leave it at this:
There are so many fabulous fabric lines coming out in the next 6 months and I think many of them deserve their own post, so I will be posting each designer’s line separately over the next couple of weeks. Because, really, don’t you want to see more than just one photo of Far Far Away 3 by Heather Ross?
Thanks for reading my blog. I am adding a google friend connect button. I would love it if you would follow me. I’d also love to know how to respond to comments via email so I can say thank you. Does anyone know how to do that on wordpress?
