This is what we saw on the first day - Set Up Day. Aurifil was unpacking.....
Jamie and Tammy were building trees for the Moda Camp booth.
Our favorite Brits - Tony and Janet had their Flight fabric collection looking spiffy. Tony surprised me with his excellent dance moves.
I asked Sandy Klop of American Jane to make sure she saves a kit of this beauty for me. It's made with Hop, Skip and Jump - her new line of fabric.
Jen Kingwell is looking regal in her amazing display of quilts, patterns, and fabrics.
Gingiber is a new Moda Designer. Thicket was very popular.
Holly - the genius graphic designer, booth builder, quilt maker, jack of all trades - made this stunner.
Our booth neighbor Betsy Chutchian had her lovely quilts made with Hope's Journey.
Linda White of Gum Valley Patchwork stopped by to chat and gave us a copy of her new book - Elenor Jean. Elenor Jean (along with her previous quilt - Dear Prudence) are awe inspiring. They are an English Paper Piecer's dream. They are also both made with Minick and Simpson fabrics. Thanks Linda, for making us look so good.
We stopped by to visit Paul and Karen of Somerset Patchworks and to pick up new supplies (for you!!!) of Mrs. Billings and Star A Day patterns. Karen may or may not have lured me into a new hand pieced project. I'm 2/3 finished with my Star A Day - it will have to wait for that.
We had a nice chat with Kathy Doughty of Material Obsession. This is her new line with Free Spirit. We love the hand quilting!
