and we’re back (+ a giveaway).


I’m back from another great trip to Quilt Market. Woohoo! It’s hard to believe that I now have 3 markets under my belt. Time sure is flying.

It was really awesome having my sister, Laurie, along this time–massive thanks to her for all her help! Thankfully we remembered to snap this pic moments into tear down. (This corner of the booth was still intact to take a photo.)


Big thanks also to everyone who played a part in helping me get to the show! There were lots of hands, minds, and spirits who helped make it more than just me standing in a bare booth. You know who you are, and I couldn’t have gotten there without you.


And to my architextures friends, take note of the topo shirt that I sported on day 3. I happily sported wearables each day of the show made from the new collection. Stay tuned to future posts on that.


The show was really fun and a total whirlwind, as expected. I love seeing friends, meeting new ones, and getting excited about making quilts. A big highlight this time around was definitely the release of architextures, and on the last day, I was ecstatic to see someone already sewing with it!

Here’s Lynn Harris of The Little Red Hen and an impressive start on some architextures hexies. You go sister!

Love your little bag too! I gotta make me one of those. It looks like a great project keeper.


And so, I’d like to do a giveaway. Post a comment below (before Monday at 11am) to win a stack of architextures mini charm squares.

    Congratulations on your third Market! Everyone I was with (including Lynn) thought Architextures was one of the hits of the show! I’m not sewing with it yet, but I will be – I managed to pick up a couple of charm packs at Sample Spree. Can’t wait for yardage to arrive 🙂
