Last Quilt Market Photos

Hello Everyone,

I am sorry I am getting this last market post out a little late, but I just returned from a wonderful quilt retreat. More on that in my next post. But first onto my photos.

This first photo is of me and Pat Sloan. A funny story we had been e-mailing each other that we would meet up at market. As of the second night had yet to find one another. Then my friend Pam and I were at dinner and I went to the ladies room. As I was coming out of the stall, there she was with Heidi Kaisand! How funny is that? The picture is from the next day. Where she was doing a book signing.  Go over and visit her blog and check out her new book.

The next picture is my friend Pam and RaNae Merrill. We attended her schoolhouse and then went to get a signed copy of her gorgeous new book Simply Amazing Spiral Quilts. She was really a very spirited person and a bright and cheerful personality. Please check out her site here.

This is of course RaNae and me.

Then we had to stay and visit with the lovely Darlene Zimmerman. If you are a fan of 30's repro fabrics, which I am, then she is the queen. She gave a little demo and then gave away some signed copies of her books.  

So that is my wrap up! If you haven't checked out the beautiful slideshow of the quilts from Houston, just click here and turn on your volume.

Until next time, Happy Quilting!!

Thank you , thank you so very much for the lovely slide show. I was kind of fretting because I did not get to go, and this was just the perfect alternative!

It was so nice reading about your time at the show and meeting everyone. :-)
I'm going to wait until my son comes home to look at your slideshow. I have to download a newer version of quicktime, and I was just a little leery because my computer is almost overburdened at the moment. I don't want to slow it down too much more! But he'll clean it up for me and then I can look at all your pictures.
