Quilt Market Pictures

I hope you have some time because this might be a long one!! You don't mind though do you?
I got to go to quilt market with my friend Luann who owns Winline Textiles. She sells me the batting I use. She had a booth there and I had the greatest time helping her out. Here is her booth.

If you have been into the shop you know how much I LOVE this batting. I won't use anything else. CLICK HERE to go to her website. All you have to do is feel the difference. I use a lot of her bamboo, the 80/20, and the 12 oz. I wandered around at quilt market looking at all the batting companies because I wanted to know that I was getting the most out of my money. I was. Try Winline Textiles. Watch for a giveaway of the 80/20 batting within the next couple of months.

This is a picture of all of us waiting to get into Sample Spree

This isn't a very good picture but it is of the Security Guard blocking the door before Sample Spree. I went up to the front of the line to take this picture becasue who knew they would need crowd control at quilt market?? Well up there at the front of the line was the person over secutiry and he tells his employees to treat quilt market like a Pearl Jam concert for old ladies. We are that wild I guess.

This is Patricia Bravo of Art Gallery Fabrics. This is person number 1 on Kortnie's long list of people I needed to meet (because she was so jealous I got to go). That little bundle of fabric she is holding is now in Kortnie's possession so I think I did pretty good. Kortnie had been telling me since the Home Machine Quilt show (where she got a couple yards of Art Gallery Fabric) that I needed to look at her stuff. I am sort of busy and I don't really like the stuff she likes so I just kept telling her OK Kort, OK Kort and never did. But I am so glad I did. Her stuff is absolutely beautiful! The colors are amazing and it is like nothing else that you see. Check her website and her blog out.

To give you a feel of just how big quilt market is I took these pictures from above. It was so big and there were so many amazing things to see. This is really an amzing industry to work in. I met so many amazing people I can't even begin to tell you what a great time I had!
I took some pictures of a bunch of quilts and quilting so I'll probably add them in the next couple of days.
See ya
