Quilt Market

What a week we have had, idea overload! Sorry we haven't posted in a few days but we have been busy with our class schedules, lots to learn. Here are a few pictures we thought you would enjoy. Sharon and Jennie are a couple of ladies from Australia that we met at the Pittsburgh Quilt Market and got to know them again!
Barb & Lilly took a class from Eleanor Burns.

This is just to give you an idea of how big the exhibit area is, this doesn't even show all of it! At some crosswalks there are flags to be sure you are seen.
Micheal Miller had a superhero theme for their booth complete with a phone booth! Riley Blake had a den for the men. The Quilted Fish ladies had a great mad hatter theme.Here a picture of the line-up for sample spree, and this was even taken at the halfway point! For those of you that don't know what it is, sample spree is a chance for retailers to buy small amounts of fabric that isn't coming out for months! A chance to get samples done before the fabric actually arrives. It's like Black Friday for fabric retailers!
