Through the eye's of a Quilter!!

Been home several days now, and the washing, ironing
and general sorting stuff out has kept me busy.
 Its so good to be home in my own bed.

l attended several Schoolhouse's. This one is Mary Elizabeth Kinch,
 showing us quilts from her new book, Small Pieces, Spectacular Quilts.
l highly recommend this book if you love reproduction quilts.

This is Leonie and Dierdre being introduced for the first time as
Authors of their very own Quilt Book.
 l think Leonie is just a wee bit excited!!

The always popular Carol Hopkins.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning l spent wandering the halls of market,
 and here are a few things that caught my eye.

Leonie and Dierdre ( The Quilted Crows )in front of one of my favorite quilts from their new book.

Their booth, which was always busy.

These antique quilts, from The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum,
 l spied in Blue Hills booth.
Watch out for future fabric lines from these quilts.

This is the new Moda Collection for a Cause Quilt.
The antique quilt is on the rack.

Sew Unique Creations by Tara Lyn Darr.

l had a chance meeting with Mary Kinch in Mary Kovals Antique quilt booth.
Wonder what we were both doing there?
Hi Mary!!

Antique quilts from Mulberry Lane.

HeartSpun Quilts by Pam Buda.

Walking the halls.

Why you ask?
Just to show there is other stuff than reproductions and antique quilts.

The new French General range by Moda.
Chateau Rouge.

Gail Pan Designs, a quilter friend from back home.

Quilts to be found in Mary Koval Antique Quilts booth.

Of course, that's just a snippet of what is on show to see.
l hope you have enjoyed seeing Quilt Market through the eye's of a Quilter.

l will be back soon, with a run down on books,
fabrics and other stuff that came home with me.

Thanks for visiting.

P.S. l have no idea why some pictures are HUGE and others small. If you know how to fix it, please let me know.
