Quilt Market Recap: Variety pack!

So, here is a variety of images from Quilt Market. I actually meant to take a ton more pictures and give you in-depth coverage, but it turned out that the whole buying for business thing really took over. 

Denyse Schmidt is coming out with a great line, Chickapee, this fall (august? I can't remember). I didn't manage to get a big shot of her booth, but look who we found on the design wall, The Monkees! Well, if we weren't sold on the fabric before, we are now! Doesn't Davy look handsome?
 This is a shot from the Westminster booth. The large rose is a new challis fabric that they are introducing and it's going to be great for garment. I think it might be shipping now, so we should get it soon.
 And what would market be without a shot of Amy Butler's booth? The booth is pretty, the new fabric lovely, and Amy herself very very nice. But let's be honest; one of the main draws was her husband David (designer of Parson Gray fabric). He was voted hottest man at the show by everyone I know.
 And Tula Pink! She had a fabulous booth. I didn't get a full shot because every time I went by it was full of people. She had some great quilts up, one for nightshade (which will be here soon) and her fall line as well. Don't forget you will be able to meet miss Tula herself at bon bon on November 3rd!

Here is our friend Shea making her debut at market. You know Empty Bobbin patterns, we carry them at the store, and we are so happy the world has gotten to see them. Hooray Empty Bobbin!
 Finally we come to our last photo. It's kind of a funny story, E and I stopped by the Zen Chic booth on Saturday to look at their really gorgeous quilts. The man in the booth told us to leave a business card to be entered in a raffle. Well, Ok! On Monday morning two folks wandered into the store and it turns out that not only did we win the raffle, but the Zen Chic folks were staying down the street and realized they could walk the prize to us! Fate!

It seems like we should forward the favor, so if you would like to win this pack o' Moda fabric and the pattern leave a comment. We will select at random and maybe you will be the proud owner of this lovely gift!

We just moved to Kansas City and I've been drooling from afar at all the shops I frequent who went to Quilt Market. Wish I could have been a fly on the wall!

Would love to win the giveaway!

How awesome is that, hand delivered goodies. I do not expect the same treatment, USPS will do!

I'm coming to the store tomorrow and I'm so excited!!
