I went to Andover's school house and won this great book by Nancy Murty. Nancy is an identical twin and had her sister there with her. She's an artist and lives in a beautiful area of rural New York. I've been to that area several times and it is wonderful and it is how Nancy gets lots of her inspiration.I also was at Lizzy House's schoolhouse, also with Andover. Lizzy's blog is one of the first ones I started reading years ago. She has a new fabric line out with Andover called Castle Peeps. They gave out cute bags at Andover and you can see both of the bags above. Super cute.
I talked about getting my free book at the book signing for the Moda Bakeshop book. The book is great with some of the free patterns seen on the bakeshop blog. So glad I got this.Kim gave me this amazing magnetic pin catcher ring. Kim is featured in the Moda Bakeshop book. You can read more about that at her blog. This ring is so cute. Not only is it magnetized but the pin catcher comes off like a snap! So clever. Thanks Kim.
Moda was giving out these great totes. I missed getting one but Shelby from Material Girls was sweet to share with me. Thanks Shelby.
More free patterns. Gotta love that. And these aren't all of them.I got this pattern at Jeana Kimball's booth. I think it is really really sweet. You may know Jeana from her fabulous straw needle line, which I pretty much use exclusively for applique. Jeana has new embroidery needles out and I got a free sample of those, too.
I hung my Pam stuff up immediately on my bulletin board when I got home. She also has a free pattern to that cute strawberry decorating her booth. It is on her blog so you can get it, too. My kids keep wanting me to open my little Pam Jam but I'm saving it to admire.When we had our little retreat Pam was so generous to share some Daiso goodies with me. She knows I'm insane about the Japanese treasures.
Another look. They are all so cute and she gave them in this little carrier. I don't even want to separate the cuties. I just want to look at them over and over.
However, I realize it is probably more fun to use them than look at them. I put the little scrubby and sponges in a tiny strainer and placed it in the window above my kitchen sink. I even used some of the little tissues packaged up so darling. Thanks Pam. I love everything.
Pam also gave me this Romantic Homes book to enjoy at the retreat. Next to the magazine is Pam's pattern found at Elizabeth's website. I have plans for this runner pattern. If you've not shopped at Elizabeth's Store, you won't believe her beautiful fabric and patterns. One of my favorite quilts I've made is Elizabeth's Vintage Christmas.
Let's talk Lori for a bit now. Lori gave out these darling cherry licorice packages with some of her Sew Cherry fabric at market. I was lucky to get one.
Lori is a great gift giver. She always has the best stuff and finds the cutest things. She gave me 2 of her new patterns in the Sew Cherry pattern line. I'm currently working on the pattern on the left called Cherry Cheesecake. Lori had Beehive Cottage custom make these notebooks for us with her Sew Cherry and vintage flair.
Look how cute the cover is decorated inside and out. And it came with a sweet vintage tag. Love it.This is the back inside cover. I want that apron!
Lori also gave us apron water bottles to use as we sewed along with a pattern for the mini apron. Thanks so much Lori.
I was so privileged to meet Jennifer Paganelli at market. Jennifer is one of the nicest people and has the loveliest fabric lines. I wasn't present during the signing for her brand new book but Lori was kind enough to get it for me.
Jennifer signed it to me. Sweetness.
The book is photographed and put together so well. I can make Allison some lovely things with the patterns. I thought this simple ruffled tote in the book was so stunning.
I did get to meet Monica at market and get some of her fabric at sample spree. I previously blogged that Lori and I shared her fat quarter pack by dividing it into fat eighths. Monica has a free pattern for the cutest zig-zag quilt. You can get the pattern free here. I drooled over all the great fabrics at the Kokka booth. Fabric Worm and Superbuzzy carry a lot of the Kokka lines. I was able to get these sample fabrics during market. Sew sweet.I already talked about BariJ's Paris Apartment line I snagged at sample spree. Bari has great patterns and I can't wait to open this pack up and get at it. You can look at all Bari's stuff and a better look at her fabric at Fat Quarter Shop. This is the new line of Lecien Flower Sugar. You must jump over to Fat Quarter Shop for a closer look. This is a big picture of an itty bitty 2.5" fabric pack. I think every fabric company should be making these 2.5" squares. I love that size and I use it over and over in my quilting/sewing. I got this from the Cotton Way booth. The fabric line is called Ruby and it is really really cute. Go over to FQS to get a better peek since it isn't out yet. It is going to be a big hit. Remember that pattern of Pam's for the table runner above? I'm going to use this little pack of Ruby to make that table runner.
You know I went to the great 80's party bash that Riley Blake threw at the Depot. They gave out these hard bound books about Utah as a market keepsake. It is a great book to have, especially for those visitors to SLC. I am so glad I got it.
I have to include in my goodie loot post all the great stuff from the Blogger's party. We had so many great donations of goodies. Our supporters were fabulous. Thanks again to everyone for participating in this event.
I got these cute pens from Sew Sara at the blog party. Sara has cute stuff.
OK, NOW THE GIVE AWAY......I will pick 3 winners.
I won this incredibly cute Trick or Treat fabric from Riley Blake. I simply love it. Go look how cute each piece from the line is at the link above. However, I know I won't get to make a Halloween quilt this year so I'm going to give it away as my first prize. Just leave a comment to win.
This is a Robert Kaufman fabric I got at sample spree. It is especially cute. I really like it and the colors pop. Leave a comment to win this fabric roll. I picked it up at sample spree just for a giveaway.
Adorn it is a Utah company and I love to support locals. We went to their schoolhouse class and talked to the gals at sample spree. Leave a comment to have a chance at winning this fabric above. It is a layer cake size pack and would make a great quilt for that kid in your life.
