Spring Quilt Market 2017 in St Louis was fun, fast and a total whirlwind as usual. Here are some highlights.
Now the other stuff, starting with some Blake gang signs…or something like that.
Arianna, Elise, Ariga, Ellen and I were all sporting some Blake on the first day of the show. Patterns are (from left to right), Colette Moneta, Tilly And The Buttons Zadie Dress, Colette Moneta, Grainline Penny Raglan, Seamwork Jane
Jenni Smith’s Sloth quilt (-within-a-quilt) is pretty darn special!
Julia’s new sewing pattern is pretty great, which is why I just had to whip up a couple of Dumpling Pincushions for the booth–in Blake (and some Friedlander too). (BTW, Julia’s Hayden top in Arroyo is pretty stunning…)
Now that I’m home, I’m doing much of the obvious stuff–catching up on things and following up on stuff, but I’ve also been quilting, or rather patchworking like crazy. I love it when I’m feeling inspired to sew, and even though I’ve been promising myself some new garments (kalle kalle kalle) and a bag (I’m looking at you, Traverse), I keep finding myself glued to my sewing machine, sewing up new ideas as well as some new stuff from others. It’s been fun.
But I do need to clean my sewing room…that will happen soon!
