SPRING 2009 QUILT MARKET: PART ONE


For those of you who didn't make it to Spring 2009 Quilt Market or didn't make it over to my neck of the woods in the huge convention center, welcome to my humble booth. Today I will concentrate on the booth, then I'll do the gloriously amazing people next. How self-centered is that? Hugely, I admit, but also the first few of a hundred + pics on my camera.

I was given a 4x8 space this time, so instead of cramming it full, I chose to have a patchwork theme to represent the 40 new fabrics in the Summer Soiree Collection for Michael Miller. I can handle busy in a clean, organized kinda way, ya know? So here it is.

The ottoman is just a reflection of some fabrics in my new line and actually includes strike-offs (not the real deal) since I didn't have fabrics til the last minute. My man made this ottoman for ME and ultimately our family room! If I can figure out a way to come up with cool ottoman legs I'd love to provide an ottoman tutorial for you all. I love the big chunky balled legs and couldn't find them anywhere. I actually bought an ottoman and took the legs off to use on my own version, I was that desperate!! Anyone have some big, fat, round, layered ball legs (and not our own, my ladies) please let me know.

Next in the booth is this collage I made with various florals and base prints from the new Summer Soiree Collection with a bit of vintage lace encased in an IKEA frame. My inspiration came from the arrangement Kathy Miller sent me when I destroyed my arm/shoulder immediately after signing on w/MMF. All I know is that after such a severe break, I could only hope for some mobility. Dr's kept referring to my break as "bad; really bad". It is now my personal miracle. Seriously, I sign my name, paint and draw from the same arm that was totally not connected. What can I say? I still am amazed that planes can fly.


Here is my Oh Jackie! handbag that is soon to be a pattern. I have been refused entrance until I hand over the bag. Hope the pattern is hugely popular and available. Hows that for optimism?


A settee pillow. Yes, I will make this available. Do I lose sleep for nothing? Soon, very soon.

These are belts rolled on a cake plate. If you just buy them to wear these will make for a very pretty waistline!

This is a quilt that was within the MMF area. Hope the quilt pattern is available thru MMF.

  25. Oh, your booth was soo cute! I love the new line, and I seriously need a pillow with a settee on it. Cute!
    BTW, here's a place with curvy legs (the wooden kind, of course). I think I MAY have ordered legs from then when I redid a chair as this was in my bookmarks, but a lot of things end up there randomly...
