I forgot my camera at home when I went to the American Quilting Moonlight Madness event on Friday. This is picture from my phone. Pardon the goofy expression on my face but this was the only clear picture. And next to me - the ever present Laurie (she has to get in every picture) with her Russian hat on. (you'd think it was -40 degrees out! - somehow this is a "cool" hat?). Shelbie and Laurie came with me for moral support and to help me set-up. I was able to market some of my patterns and kits and I even gave out the cottage tutorial instructions.
Lila Tueller and Jill Finley, both fabric designers and pattern creators, were also presenters at the event. It was really fun and I got to meet some great people. The store was really packed. Some of my friends came to see me (Kim, RaeAnn, Tricia and a few others) and I also met some readers of my blog, too (Karen, Amy, Lola's mom and some others?). Thanks for coming girls! Here is my latest sample bag for the "Mixed Bag to Quilt" pattern. I forgot to leave a sample bag at the store when I left so I'll be dropping this one back off at American Quilting. I did put some kits in my etsy store. It is a fun bag to make.
