Quilt Market Pittsburgh 2014
I’ve been home for a week now from International Quilt Market in Pittsburgh and I had a great time. I was one of three new designers for Moda Fabrics. I was so happy to make new friends of these lovely ladies. (If you don’t already know April Rosenthal and Amy Ellis, you definitely need to check them out. Their new lines are FABULOUS.)
So I didn’t bring my camera so you we’ll have to get by on photos taken on my phone. Being a Moda designer means that I got to have a spot in the Moda booth with the other designers. It was a heavenly place to be. (A big thanks to all the folks at Moda for putting in so much sweat in making it an award-winning booth!) The Moda booth layout was sort of like a town square: the designers’ booths surrounded the center sales booth area. (This is the view from my booth.)
Here’s my little corner. Alex Veronelli (Aurifil) volunteered to model the Cottage Canopy and I must say that he looks right at home.
I was excited to show a few new patterns I’m working on including the Rose Red doll at the beginning of this post, but also a Nordic play cape called Wolf Bait that my mom and I are working on together.
It was a week of firsts–my first fabric collection showing, my first time to Pittsburgh, and my first time in an ambulance. I definitely could have done without that last one (dang kidney stones!) but am okay. Long story short, I gained a stint while in Pittsburgh and will (finally) have the kidney stones blasted this afternoon here in Lubbock. (Wish me luck!)
In the meantime, my sewing machine is looking rather lonely and neglected. Please bless I can get this kidney stone business behind me soon!
