It’s that time again! Lets meet all the Moda Designers that attended Quilt Market in Pittsburgh!
Drum roll please …
Me and My Sister Designs!
I always start with this lonely picture of Mary in the booth without me. But seriously, who’s taking the pictures? I love our new LOL collection and Mary too! The new purples are to die for. I think a picture of Mary sitting alone in the booth has become a tradition and happens more often than I care to admit.
Minick and Simpson!
This is Simpson minus Minick. Polly wasn’t able to attend due to celebrating happy family events. Isn’t Laurie’s smile infectious? This is one of my favorite pictures of her ever. She is one of our favorite booth neighbors too, we have many, but we’re always excited to be next to this other pair of sisters.
One word … Darling! Kathy worked so hard setting up her booth and tried to get all those blocks in the background centered just right. I didn’t have the heart to tell her the ones on the left are crooked. She also matches her booth. Cuteness overload!
New girl on the row alert! It was very nice to meet Amy and she did a pod cast with me. My very first! I was really happy that we got to know her and her neutrals.
Go April! Another new girl on our row alert! Since April is my birthday month I liked her instantly. Friendly and talented. I wish I could get away with wearing those pants!
Love Sandy! I love how she always tries to camouflage herself in her booth too. Those great flowers that she’s hiding behind were made with Q Tips and paint. She always excels in style and creativity!
We can always count on Joanna to have a beautiful booth! I think I’d like to take home those green carpets. Wonder if she would notice if they’re missing tomorrow morning? A fun and very talented lady.
Bridget had a relaxed studio vibe going on in her booth. Love all the over sized numbers! I certainly think she was the most comfortable and probably the only one who didn’t go back to the hotel every night with tired feet.
Little Debbie is always smiling! I wonder if she likes being called that … but she IS little and sweet. Just like the snack cakes! Those snowmen are about the happiest and cutest ever.
Another new girl! How many does that make now … 3! Is it only me or does she kinda look like Camille from Thimbleblossoms?? I glanced across the convention center several times and had to do a double take.
This talented group of designers is always represented by Alison at Quilt Market. She’s the perfect choice with her sparking personality and friendliness. I think the quilt behind her was one of my market favorites.
Pat is always one of the most difficult designers to get a picture of because she’s always so busy! It took me until the last day to finally pin her down for this one. It was so worth the waiting! Love that sewing machine quilt.
Janet was on her way home and all packed up when I took this photo. Mary and I had fun getting to know her even more this market. She is actually very funny and can tell a great story. With 2 small boys who collect dead animals, she has a great pool of adventures to draw from.
We all love Sandy! She’s another great story teller and always has a new foreign film series ready to talk about. Can you believe that she brings all those quilts in that single suitcase?
Lynne is a winner again! She won another first place ribbon for her beautiful booth. Her husband Robert took most of the credit for the artfully arranged lamp posts on each corner of the booth. But I’m thinking that probably wasn’t the only reason she won. Could beautiful quilts and talent have anything to do with it??
Laundry Basket Quilts!
Love these two!! Edyta and Michael are always fun to see again. They work so hard and always have a beautiful booth. Edyta has a new children’s book coming soon. We saw a copy and it’s gorgeous! It’s full of her beautiful quilts and fabrics … so Mom will enjoy it too.
Mary and I have been lucky enough to be on the same side of the convention center with this hard working and delightful lady two times in a row! Her husband wasn’t with her this time and we missed him … but fishing is more important than market to some people I guess.
Lauren and Jessi Jung!
This mother and daughter team are just as nice as they look! No family resemblance here? Sweetness and talent must run in the family tree too! Well done ladies with the great displays and beautiful quilts!
Well that’s another roll call wrap!
We visited with every designer around the Moda area at Quilt Market in Pittsburgh. Hope you enjoyed the tour!
