Spring Quilt Market – Part Two

Wow!  It has been an incredibly busy day.   WARNING:  Lots of pictures ahead!

The Doors opened at 9:30 a.m.

Quilt Market Welcome

Our first stop was the Bunny Hill booth to see Anne’s new “A Vintage Christmas” block-of-the-month.  We’ll definitely be adding this to our BOM programs.  It features fabrics from Stone Cottage & Itsy Bits by Renee Nanneman, Glace by 3 Sisters, and Figgy Pudding by Basic Grey.

Traveling a short way to spend some time poring over all the new Moda fabrics with our Moda Rep, Carol.

Okay – time for a lunch break, and a blog break, and maybe a sleep break too.

I’ll come back in the morning and post our market giveaway game info.

Merry Quilt Market to all, and to all a good night!
