Quilt market 1

There is no possible way to keep up with myself at the moment. I am days away from Quiltmarket and yet to post about.

I know you would have already seen great quilt market wrap-ups around the interwebs so this is just a little bit of my stuff for now. This Sew Together bag was made for me by my friend Katharine (@katharine_von_bibra on IG). It is the cutest most perfectly executed bag ever!!! In the background is the wonderful quilt made by Rita of Red Pepper Quilts.

Market is crazy and I did not leave the booth (bathroom breaks aside) for the first two days. I talked the ears off people and laughed (a lot) and even managed a prom photo.
I line-danced and gate-crashed a BIG party and danced like a loon to some awesome '80s music. I made a whole host of new friends and I squeezed some old friends extra hard. I missed the people who weren't there and made plans with the people who were. I had short moments of complete Designer Professionalism and a few important-people type meetings that have pretty much turned me off ever becoming an important-person.

There was very late night alcohol induced pushbike riding that involved stationary pushbikes and loud singing of 'Let's get Physical' and loads of sheanigans and merry-making.

I could say most stories involving me at market are greatly exaggerated.... But none of you would beleieve me if I did.

  8. You're so funny -- I would have loved to see you signing late at night LOL! I hope you're having the best time ever. I'm so sorry I'm not there to show you all the fantastic sights in Utah -- you're barely scratching the surface! The other markets locations just don't have as much to see. You MUST come back!!!
