Spring Quilt Market - Portland - Part 1

Quilt Market is always a highlight of the year for me. What inspires me at Market? The excitement of all the people, the laughter from two aisles over, the bright bright colors, new patterns, fabric fabric fabric, quilts, meeting new people, chatting with other shop owners, meeting designers and realizing they are just normal people with a life very similar to mine, and most of all spending quality time with my room mates. It's so fun to get back to your room at the end of an exhausting day put on your jammies, pour a glass of wine, and start organizing everything you looked at that day. Then there is the YES pile, the maybe pile, and the no pile. Every store has there own certain personality and you definitely buy accordingly, it's what makes us unique. It's so awesome that quilt stores take on their own style and each one can be so different. They say variety is the spice of life so lets be different and unique!

The first set of pictures I will share with you are "Quilt Show" quilts. I will posting a couple more times with pictures from Market.

Nice quilts!
