I have no idea what's in this box but let me tell you, there's a lot of stuff that gets moved up into that Sample Spree Ballroom. As usual we had safe legal passage into the room, thanks to Brenda.
Brenda hand dyes some beautiful wool. This is my only clear picture, all others are slightly blurry and you can't see just how lovely it all is. The colors are so pretty. I could eat them. But I won't.
Here is Kathy and one of her crew, Sandra. I'll be talking more about Kathy in another post.
Here are our old neighbors Sherri and Paul from This and That. Super nice. Their beautiful Minnesota home was featured in a recent American Patchwork and Quilting issue. Wow is all I can say. (And let me add they beat us out the door again!)
Here's Vicki Bellino from Bloom Creek. Her quilts are so pretty. She also treated us to a little bloggy shophopping lately, so check it out!
I'm dying over the darling outfits the girls from the Threaded Pear were wearing. The dress version is super cute and way more me.. being denim and all.
Everyone had done some cute work on the front as well. I cropped this because the picture wasn't flattering (and you can trust me to not show an unflattering picture) , but I had to show the darling design. Each of them had a little something different. I apologize for the lack of names here.. no badges to read!
One of these bags of fabric goodness is mine! We fell in love with the new line Cottage Romance by WillowBerry Lane with Maywood Studios. We weren't the only one believe me.. this seems to be what a lot of designers were buying. Even people who design their own fabric lined up with us. Everyone was going NUTS over the scallop stripe but I was CRAZY for the Sprigs.. you know my love a printed background.
Last but surely not least are the girls from Mary's Cottage Quilts. Mary was all over the place and we didn't see her during Sample spree. She's got some great people with her!
It was a great time. More of my stuff later..
