Spring Market: Sunday

I’m still trying to catch up on our hundreds and hundreds of photos from the weekend! It’s funny — the time goes by in such a blur, I can’t even remember what happened until now, looking back at the photos. Here are a few more memorables to share!

Oh first though…Dr. Seuss (September) is almost in the house! And this striking French Reel kit from Maison de Garance (October). Both are iron-hot items for which you will want to sign up for notification, because they will be out the door in no time once they arrive!

Joanna’s Snuggle Softies — cow or pig? I say a delightful crossbreed.

The Cottage at Cardiff Farms booth. The heart quilt, of course, caught Cheryl’s eye 🙂 (She likes hearts. Heart those strippy hearts!)

Amanda Herring from The Quilted Fish. Love this sweet lady!! And a funny, creative genius, to boot. Her line, Sweet Divinity, will be out in the fall, and oh em gee we wanna show you so bad!!!! Soon! Soon!

Here’s where I wanted to tell Lynne Hagmeier to “Shut up” Stacy London style. But I didn’t know if she would take it the wrong way. How gorgeous is this Summer’s End quilt!? Shut up, Kansas Troubles!

Yummy Sweetwater booth. Everything is just the right shade of calm. It reminds me of “brown paper packages, tied up with string…just a few of my favorite things” 🙂 Pure delight!

Meadowsweet Two!! Thank you Sandi for gracing us with more Meadowsweet!

Why Patty Young won 2nd place double booth. Yup. That’s her upcoming Playdate line! We’ll have it, of course! And her knits, too!

I felt like shopping in the Favorite Things booth — yet the baby made this photo “aw”-able.

How could I not post this?? Kate Spain wrapped up in Fandango. It’s a wonderful thing to be wrapped up in.

Patty and Sandi Henderson in front of the Fig Tree Quilts booth. I love seeing how their creative spirits foster this incredible friendship.

Kim Kight and Caroline Devoy! It was such a pleasure to meet/catch up with them. Thanks for obliging me with all the many photo ops and beautiful smiles 🙂

Kansas City Star’s booth displaying so many gorgeous quilts!

The LakeHouse booth, showing off Fun Flowers! Rachel Griffith’s quilt is smack dab center. Keep your eyes peeled for it because we get to kit it! Woop!

The G.E. Designs booth! A minty fantasy of Halloween and Christmas!

And this photo just can’t contain all this talent.

I also can’t neglect to show you Kaari Meng, the French General we all salute for bringing us Rouenneries, Rural Jardin, and now Maison de Garance! Your fabrics are wonderful!


  1. And don't forget Lumiere, my current favorite by French General! The pictures are all so wonderful! Thank you!

  2. I really appreciate all the fun pictures of market. It helps to put faces to names. And I like seeing things that not everyone else posted about. Thanks so much!

  3. Thanks for sharing the pictures – makes you want to be there with all the excitement going on AND with all the beautiful fabrics, etc., SO MANY choices. My heart is pounding from all the excitement. Nice to put names with the faces too.
