Aftermath of Kansas City

Back home to pine pollen, daily chores, and of course work. Market was great! There is always so much to absorb and really not enough time to contemplate what new things to buy. We felt like the new patterns and books were really creative and different this year. Extra suitcases came home loaded with fabric, books, patterns, thread and ideas galore. Of course more goodies are being shipped. We found lots of new wool and embroidery patterns. So much talent was discovered along every aisle at the convention center. I always crack myself up when I see someone "famous" and get all excited. Now I'm not talking Brad Pitt or George Clooney. I'm talking Amy Butler, Camille Roskelley, Sandy Klopp, Valorie Wells, Anna Maria Horner, Joanna Figueroa, Tula Pink, Lynette Anderson, and the list goes on and on. These talented people enrich, enhance and move our industry higher and higher. Thank you!

Here's some of my favorite pictures from Quilt Market.
