Can you believe it?

I still can hardly believe that 1. quilt market is over and 2. I have a line of fabric with Lakehouse.Can you believe how cute the booth looked? Let me give a quick thanks to Nadine from Material Girls for the loan of a bunch of really cute props to go with the fun items that I brought. Look at that little oven. Seriously on my list of things to find for my greedy little self. And look how cute that polka dot bag is from Penny and Darci of Quilts Illustrated. She had some darling new bags this market. Check out her website to see the new City Zipper pattern and I'm going to be all over that Pleated Posie flower.

We had a lot of fun things to share with shop owners who stopped by to look at PamKittyMorning and place their orders.

Look at our pretty inspiration table... Thanks Elizabeth for getting all that set up. She's a vignette genius of course. I made a lot of pinwheels in the hotel room.. super cute and fun, easy to make. Holly printed up double sided sheets of PKM designs on paper and I found some instructions on the internet to make them. Using double sided paper and a big craft punch for the center made them so PKM. ( Word to the wise though, buy craft shop dowels.. you can punch through them easily with a push pin. I used sequin pins to mount the pinwheel onto the dowel, and pushed them through the dowel and bend the tip over onto the backside so the pin doesn't slide out. A dab of glue keeps the end from poking you.)

Pinwheels weren't the only thing made for the booth. I made a lot of strawberries. A. Lot. Of. Them.

In the next week or so you'll be able to download a lovely little free pattern so you can make a bunch yourself. As usual I leave the cute patterning up to Elizabeth, and wait till you see it..

Yeah, a lot of strawberries.. 150 at the very least. Elizabeth designed a cute recipe card for them, and I rolled a lot of bakers twine to send off with the cards.

There's so much more quilt market to share, but I caught a bit of a bug and I'm moving really slow here around PKMville.

I've been seeing so many pictures of you and your new fabric line on various posts. It looks like Market went so well for you. And isn't Nadine of Material Girls the best? Fun to see you mingle with the Salt Lake ladies.

Your booth was wonderful. Absolutely a delight. I thought you were well positioned on the floor of market and it couldn't have been more perfect...except may be for having the fabric at sample spree!

I could have taken one of everything in that booth. I wanted to heist a strawberry but I was good and left them there. :( I did get alot of other things though. Including lots of your delicious new fabric line.
