SPRING QUILT MARKET 2009: THE BEST AND MOST FUN PLACE TO BE (part 2)

Before anything, all the prizes for the mother's day give-away are on their way and they will receive them soon... I want to appologize to the 6 winners for the delay. Soorry girls!

Continuing with Quilt Market 2009 series, in this second part I want to introduce to you more amazing people from our BIG quilting community and share more beautiful pictures Angelina took of our booth...

Do you know Patricia Bolton? What a talented woman! She's the founder and editor-in-chief of Quilting Arts Magazine, and host of Quilting Arts TV on PBS. "Pokey" is pure energy! She came to visit me to my booth and told me about her new magazine: Quilt Scene. Her "new baby" will be published very soon and she invited me to show some of my projects for future issues! How cool is that?

I love how our booth came out. Beautiful.... It took a big effort of 2 days, but everything was on time and ready when the guy on the microphone said, like every show, year after year: "International Spring Quilt Market 2009 is open for business, we are open for business"... Each time that I hear to the same announcement I have goose bumps... of emotion and happiness!

We decorated our booth with flowers, to show shop owners that flowers are an eternal match for quilt displays...

Don't you love these balls? Simple: wrap styrofoam balls with fabrics and put them on a focal point in your room to show a splash of color!

This picture below is another corner of the booth, where we focused on Revive. We try to combine different projects to give more ideas to shop owners about merchandising. Everybody loved it!

She is a sweet, but really sweet lady. Please meet Deborah Hearn, editor-in-chief of QUILT Magazine. Beautiful publication, Deb is switching its look to a more contemporary and fresh one and without loosing perspective of the quilting's real essence. Beside great projects, there are spotlights and interviews to personalities in the quilting world (which I love to read), and a great "fabric buyer's guide", to inspire you for future projects. They made a quilt with my Botanica fabrics in the current issue and another one is coming soon! Stay tune and be sure to subscribe... Thank you Deb for visiting me!

Deb and me 

Do you like this charming flowers? There were part of the decoration. Future pattern? I have had many requests. What do you think? Would you like to see a pattern of these flowers to decor your daughter's room?

I hope you have enjoyed the photos. I have many more, and I'll try to show you in future posts.

Before I forget, one announcement: I have posted links to all my FREE projects! I'm very happy that now all of you can make them... They're really fun and very easy to make! Look on the upper left sidebar of this blog under "Free Projects" and click on them for download.

There's more to come, so see you soon,

 

Handmade rocks...  so let's keep on stitching!

Patricia
