The after market dust is beginning to settle and I’m finally catching up on my sleep! Market is always a lot of work, but also a lot of fun!
The Moda Booth was adorable!
The theme this time was …
There were cute sea creatures posted at each corner of the booth.
The whale was actually blowing bubbles!
I tried to get a picture but the bubbles were just too quick!
I loved all the cute little sea creatures everywhere!
This is Sonja, the Moda rep from our area. She covers most of the Arizona territory.
The booth also won some awards!
2nd place for multiple booth. Those Moda girls did a great job setting up and making sure everything was just right!
Just in case you wanted to know, I had Mexican food 4 times … 3 of them at Ninfa’s …
They make fresh tortillas to order! Now what girl could resist an opportunity like that!!
The Moda Gang and another successful quilt market!
See you in Pittsburgh in just a few short months!
A day to celebrate ONE of my favorite foods!
Today I’ll have an Italian Grinder on fresh crusty french bread.
Ingredients: ham, sliced sandwich pepperoni, provolone cheese, a few thin slices of tomato, butter lettuce, lots of chopped peperoncini and a sprinkle of Italian dressing.
YUM!! A great celebration!
From our scary spider …
And the rest of the gang!
We’re on our way!
Please follow all our market adventures on Instagram until we return.
We have a new project in the just released magazine …
It’s a fun quilt called “back to basics” and is on page 54.
It’s made using a layer cake and our new “Giggles” fabrics!
The block finishes 8 inches and our quilter, Sharon Elsberry quilted an interlocking circle pattern over the entire quilt!
As soon as I put the quilt down on the floor to get some quilting pictures, Bella decided she needed to sit.
She is also covered in dirt as you can see! She got some dusty paw prints on the quilt but they brushed off easily. Why is it that every time a quilt goes on the floor the dogs think they have to roll on it??
There is a kit available here …
The issue is scheduled to hit the news stands tomorrow. But if you can’t find the issue at your local quilt shop you can order a copy here …
Thanks Quilting Arts and Modern Patchwork!
I was so excited to see a review of our new book inside the latest issue of …
Turn to page 8 first …
