Quilt Market I... in which I got to take a picture with a celebrity.

Yep, that's me with my mom.  

My mom's a rock star celebrity to me because she went with me to Quilt Market and braved the thousands of booths and looked at all of the displayed quilts with me.  
Every single one.  And there were zillions.  
She discussed color and texture and different threads and use of paint on the surface and construction and all those other quilt words.  
She even hula hooped with me to get entered into a contest.

I'll have more to post about Market through the week, but I wanted to put this one up first.

Oh, and Ty Pennington's in there too.
I got to talk to him about his fabric line, which is very cool.

More to come.


  1. FUN!!!! Ok, how did you get in?!? Spring Market 2012 is going to be close to me and I looked at the qualifications to be either a vendor or buyer and I didn't qualify for either. :( I don't mean to be totally rude but you don't seem to either. How did you swing it? Oh, the quilting you are doing for others! Is that it?

  2. You must be in a state of complete overload! FUN!!! FUN!!!

  3. Totally wonderful! I'm so jealous!

  4. Was this in Houston? The owner of my favourite quilting shop in Invercargill in the deep south of New Zealand is over there at the moment checking out a big quilting show. :-)
