2012 Fall International Quilt Market in Houston

So here we are at the Riley Blake booth in Houston for the International Quilt Market. It is always so much work to get here and I fret that I won't have enough to decorate the booth. I really scaled things down this market and there was still plenty in the booth to display. I could never do all this without the help of the many designers and sewists who sew their little hearts out getting all of these items ready for quilt market.

This is Happy Ever After by Sandra Workman of Pine Needles. They have a fabulous store in Gardeners Village. 

Chevrons. How can you go wrong. They looked great.

Prairie Rose by Sue Daley of Australia. 

Riley Blake Designs kits.

The Sweetest Thing by Zoe Pearn. Really cute knits and cottons.

Geekly Chic along with ribbons and trims by Riley Blake Designs.

All our new fabric lines for 2013.

Little Matryoshka by Carly Griffith.

Indie Chic by My Mind's Eye.

Polka Dot Stitches by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet.


Fabulous quilts that Lori is busy writing pa…

Walker Lane Quilt Show

This was my first year going with a few friends to see the Walker Lane Quilt Quilt Show. Walker Lane is a beautiful hidden lane in the Holiday area in Salt Lake City. These quilters show their quilts every 2 years and from what I hear they only show what they have been working on.  They don't show quilts that have been shown before.


As you can see the property for the location of this quilt show is worth seeing. There are animals in the background that add to the ambiance of the venue.
I always love a red and white quilt.


Another wonderful red and white quilt.

Inside this barn were quilts on 2 levels that were displayed beautifully.
