Row by Row goes to Market

It always makes you feel special if you have a quilt hanging at International Quilt Market.  Last week was quilt market week in Kansas City and I understand it went really well.  I have so many friends involved in market and I sorta know what it takes to do all the work before market and then get everything shipped to the venue, set up, be there ALL THE TIME for days, and then break down the booth and ship out.  Whew.  I know my friends Pam and Lori have been market crazy for months now.  It is over now and they can take a breath.  But only a short one.
I was super excited when Holly Holderman, the mastermind of LakeHouse Dry Goods, emailed me about having my Berry Fun Row by Row quilt at market in the LakeHouse booth.  My quilt is made from Pam's line of fabric and I was so happy to help represent that fabric line.
I swiped this picture from twitter last week as I scanned Fat Quarter Shop's amazing twitter feed of everything happening at market.  There is Pam on the right and you can see my quilt on the left.  I adore Pam, by the way.  But you know that.
I swiped this picture from Holly.  Go read her blog post about market HERE.  I'm so glad she likes my quilt.  And I'm so amazed at getting such a wonderful spot in the beautiful booth.
I swiped this pic from Pam's blog.  You can go read her fun market posts here.  There are several short posts.  She and her daughter manned the Lake House booth and were busy busy busy.  I think the booth looks darling.  Who wouldn't want to stop and step into the beautiful world of Pam's fabric?  Her new line Pam Kitty Love is due out at the end of the year is killer.  Buttons, hearts, vintage and in the same color palate as her first line.  I can't wait!  Go see what the new fabric will look like here

I didn't get to market this time.  But I'm glad my quilt was able to travel there.  I have to thank Amy for taking my quilt and bringing it home.  Amy is having a quilt market giveaway today.  Go read her posts and ogle her photos.  Quilt market is so much work but so much fun.

How wonderful to have your quilt hang in pole position in the booth! It was a really terrific representation of what you can do with her fabric line and such an inventive row by row. I love your houses with the door/window in a diffrent spot in each one :) Congrats to all!

Nanette, congratulations! It's a beautiful quilt, one of just many crafted by your talented hands. Sorry to be absent lately, family stuff has taken over every moment of free time for now.
All my best,
