It's been almost a week that I have returned home from both Quilt Market and Quilt Festival in Houston. Some of you may be unfamiliar with my little business. I have a quilt shop in a one room school house and in my 5th year of business. In the last year I have been working really hard on my own pattern line! Houston was my second quilt market and actually second quilt festival! My first market was Pittsburgh and a few years ago I did Cincinnati Quilt Festival. Houston though felt like a first all over again. The saying "Everything is bigger in Texas" it truly IS! I presented my new pattern line for market and for festival I brought product from the shop as well debuted OG patterns.
Here is my market booth... I am really really proud of it! That is a lot of hand embroidery and love put into those projects.

Here are a few of the projects. I will be putting all the patterns in my on-line shop and over the next few weeks I plan on blogging about each project. I name my projects after people that I love and places that I have been! In the posts I will talk about my design process and what types of threads and fabric I used! From top to bottom: Effie, Camden, Kori and Abbie and the Pillow is Spike and Curly!
Tomorrow I will be unloading my little van... yes when we got home last Thursday I repacked my van and did a nice little quilt guild show in Parma, Ohio over the weekend. Today I have to admit I did not do much of anything. I went and got a much needed hair cut and thought I would show you all my quilt market booth that I am so proud of. I want to thank my mom and Josh... without you two my life is not complete and you are my rocks and my cheerleaders. I look at these pictures and i still can't believe that those quilts are mine. I met so many great people and it amazes me how many great things happened while we were away. I may be running on E... but I know deep down I am full of energy and ready to get to work for the next market. If only there were more hours in the day. Talk to you soon!
