Best Laid Plans

We tried, really we did. The main obstacle was exhaustion. Once the day was over at International Quilt Market and we wandered back to our hotel room. The day was "hashed" over and then we couldn't even think about downloading, blogging and such. I know you must have followed others who were more ambitious. The Fat Quarter Shop tweeted and posted photos instantly on Twitter and Facebook. Make sure to see what happened. Here is what we have ..... just a few days late.


This is our booth just a few hours after we landed in Houston. Thanks mainly to Leigh Ann, it went together fast.
The Beach Girl rug in the foreground is a teaser for our next book that will be published in the Spring. More on that later. The quilt in the background is our Go West quilt.
After the booth went up and some Schoolhouses and socializing..... that first night was set aside for Sample Spree. That fabric melee that you all dream about. This was PART of the line outside the ballroom. Needless to say, the human pile up on the right side of the room - was Moda.
A great time was had by all. There will be more pictures and observations once I pet Gibby and unpack a few suitcases.

That is a lot of work and craziness in a few days, I am sure you are happy to be home and getting a day of rest. I love the new quilts in your booth and can't wait to see your photos.
