225: Spring Quilt Market Pt. 1
I decided to paint the bench that I refurbished….uh 2 years ago….and well do a little quilt market prep at the same time.
hmm…blue spray paint…..a bunch of nickels…..what can be done about that??
And a bunch of Blue Nickels to giveaway (and switch out in the concession stands at Market! 🙂 if you happened to get one of these at Quilt Market from the concession stand contact me at bluenickel5 (at) earthlink (dot) net…and I will tell you how you can win a fabric-y prize! 🙂 )
And now onto the show:
We’ll start with these Moda Ringleaders! I saw this red tutu from miles away, and I had to grab a photo for my daughter who is into the gothic lolita look… I did not catch these lovely ladies’ names in person, and I had the “cheap” camera with me, so I can only tell by closing in that on the right in all black we have the Lovely Erin, and on the left in the red tutu we have the Lovely Someone ending in “y” 🙂 Corrections are gladly welcome at anytime! This booth was all the Moda finished goods and as always they had great stuff!
I met the lovely Kathie Alyce who has a new book out with AQS….neat stuff…I have more pictures of Kathie’s work….next post okay? Kathie used to work for the post office, she told me. She also told me that they told her she smiled too much….uh..yeah, I can see that good thing she got outa there!
Here is my friend Patty Young in her booth….she won a second place prize for it…I really don’t pay that much attention to that, but I was happy for her and her husband Jon, they build this booth together….I think she is talking to another famous designer, but I am not sure. Didn’t meet her…..Patty’s new line includes a bunch of knits…knits don’t do much for me personally, but apparently they are really good quality knits from everything that I was hearing there.
And then here are some more random shots in no particular order….but all drew my attention multiple times over….but notes taken? uh…well no, not really….so I leave others to tell you all the detail stuff ….. 🙂
AND here is the first prize pack for the quilt market giveaways that I scored for you…BUT I still don’t have enough comments on the previous post giveawayto give that prize pack away….and I have more to give away in the next couple posts….so come on, my blogosphere buddies!!..help get out the word on these prizes. This prize includes what you see here, plus a surprise fabric pack that has yet to be made up. To win this prize identify as many of the designers represented here in this picture. The more you identify, the higher your chance of winning. I will do this drawing next weekend (June 5th or so) or when I get 25 comments whichever comes first. And don’t forget, if you commented on the last post, you can’t win one prize until I get 25 comments or the second chance prize until I get 50 comments….so to help yourself win, you have to give others the same chance.
Here is another picture of this prize in a less glorious setting with the fabric bundle going with it:
