Are You Ready for Schoolhouse?? Quilt Market #2

Hello Everyone,

As promised more market photos and market talk. The next few posts are going to come fast and furious and be mostly photos for your viewing pleasure. So the good part is less writing from me. I can really talk if given the opportunity, just ask Michelle, Laura (owners of Quilting By the Yard), and Pam.

I introduced them all to you before and here are my Quilt Market Buddies, sitting, contemplating, and finally choosing their schoolhouse selections. Some of the choices were tough. But everyone was happy here, now the end of the day we were all dragging.


So onto one of my favorite choices for this years market. Pam and I went to see Karla Alexander's and boy did she have some quilty eye candy. All the quilts in the following pictures are from her newest book Color Shuffle. It is a definite must have and I think you will see why after the photos.


Beautiful blues and greens!


Nice stripey!


Love the colorful boxes!


More cool boxes!


Some tiny boxes!


Such a neat design!


Lovely Karla showing a mini.


Great table runner.


A wonky type log cabin. Click on the pic and blow it up, you will see what I mean.


Wonky type squares.


A Halloween table runner.


Yummy watermelon colors.


This plaid is a stunner, love it!


A very modern wonky square in a square.

Woven wonder.


This one just flows.


I just love circles.


Just plain cool.


One of my faves, the cover quilt!


Finally, Pam, Karla, and I with the autographed copy of her NEW book.

This is really a must have. That was just one schoolhouse everyone. So buckle up next one coming on Sunday.

Until Next Time...
