Post Market Wrap Up and Winners!!!!

We're back. We're tired, and we're happy. The big plans I have every year of taking more pictures is still unfulfilled, but I did manage a few.  You only get a few chances to walk around and explore.  Most of the time is spent in your booth talking to customers and friends.
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!

Now, on the winner of the Grand Traverse Bay Fat Quarter Bundle™ - Gayle


Gayle has already been contacted, but I have some good news...... I have picked 3 other winners!

I just wanted to say thank you for sharing photos of Market. It must be almost overwhelming to be surrounded by so many beautiful quilts and "possibilities".
