This is BariJ's booth. I told you I sorta kinda stalked her. Worth it. Everything is so pretty.
Bag and floor cloth. Incredible. She and Janice took the time to discuss their applique method with me, which I'm dying to try.
Janice and BariJ's super cute shoes.
Love the touches of dress forms in her fabric, which was echoed in her booth.
Sigh. So glad I was able to pick up her fabric at Lecien table during sample spree.Next stop the Lecien booth. Yeah I spent some time there looking and bugging those people.
Lecien has these cool cross stitch stamps. Yeah I gotta have those. They didn't have any at market. If you see them anywhere, please let me know. Super cute.More Lecien.
Lecien has free patterns for Monica's quilt made with her new fabric, which I did nab at sample spree. Lori and I split the fat quarter pack. Very fun.
I had one very fast but super important Monica hug speed visit. Market would have been terrible had we missed each other. Monica is absolutely amazing and a star.Next stop was with local friends Norma and Joyce. Recently they merged their pattern companies and now are under "Geoff's Mom" patterns. These gals are sweethearts and I've loved the patterns they have made over the years and also with Leslie, who recently retired.
Everything they make is fantastic. I love their eye and taste. I could grab and run with this bundle of quilt loot.
I'm really proud of these girls. They have recently made some sweet deals.
This is Sunny Days, which I've seen everywhere. Such a popular pattern.
I could have stayed and talked for hours there.
New fabric line by Paula Prass called Botanika. The booth was colorful and interesting.
I absolutely adore that vintage bird fabric. I want it.
Modkid had some great stuff.
This is Sandi Henderson's booth. She's a popular girl. Her new fabric is great.I've been following Sandi's work since before her first line. All darling stuff.
This is Sarah Jane's booth. I was gaga over Sarah's fabric. It is so classic and pretty.
She has embroidery designs that are really sweet.
Her family tree panel for kids is such a great way for children to remember who they are and where they came from.Sarah said she's been working on this doll house for sometime. Her children are really excited to be able to to play with this after market.
Birch Fabric had a huge booth with new fabric and lots to look at. I've made a quilt with their fabric before. It is lovely.
Their designs are really fun. It is great to see these new companies evolve.
Violet Craft had really cute fabric called Peacock Lane. I really liked they image of the elephant and keys.
She's got a really great point of view. I look forward to seeing more with this fabric.
My friends Bonnie and Brenda at Pie Plate had a booth right by Riley Blake. Brenda and I clicked at a retreat we were both at a couple years ago. I adore these gals. I want that vintage stove!There is Bonnie. I wish I had a photo with Brenda. Their patterns are wonderful. I like their perspective, too.
Hokkoh is a Japanese fabric company. They have some great designs.
I really want to make that dress for Allison. I wish I had the time to go through their fabric piece by piece.
More coming. I hope you're not going to be sick of my market reports by the time I'm done. Good memories now.
