This was my first time ever going to Quilt Market, and wow, what a time I had!
I flew into St. Louis on Wednesday, and got all registered and received my official name badge ~ another first, so exciting! :)
Everyone needs a quilty buddy to experience the show with so I met up with Janel from Nite Owl Quilting (we are friends from Sew Pro in Chicago) and her friend Dorie from Forever Quilting. We had a ball! Thanks ladies, it wouldn’t have been the same without you!
Nite Owl Quilting & Forever Quilting
Thursday we attended School House. The day kicked off with a Welcoming presentation and the Moda Fabrics William Morris Premiere Event, showcasing the new William Morris Fabric. All of the attendees received a free bag from Moda with two charm packs of the fabric!
Before Schoolhouse begins you receive a newspaper-like schedule full of presentation options. You have to choose one presentation for each 1/2 hour ~ it’s not easy to choose by the way!
There were 13 time slots and 228 options total! I decided to kick off my day with Jen Kingwell. She is the sweetest and I love her designs and fabric from Moda.
Elizabeth Hartman had a schoolhouse showing off her newest quilt design and fabric line, Pond.
Alison Glass had some gorgeous quilts with her new fabric line… CHROMA!
I was a WINNER of a fabric bundle! It’s mine… all mine! But, you can buy it here if you love it too!
Brigitte Heitland showed off her new fabric line, she is such a sweet lady!
I scored a signed copy of her new book, Zen Chic Inspired, from Martingale.
The day was jam packed and it ended with Sample Spree, where I bought a few more goodies to add to my Alison Glass bundle!
I think this Woolies Flannel bundle will make the perfect scarves for my Penguin Quilt!
