Greetings from Fall Quilt Market!

Finally I’m getting the chance to blog about our visit to Houston last weekend! As you’ve probably heard downtown New Yorkers like Marty and me only got power back yesterday. Above is a photo I took of my favorite booth by Mary Jane. She’s one of the Moda designers and her theme was Glamping!

I was happy to learn from my fabric licensee Windham that near their booth Susie Seligman was making some fun shirts mixing my Bon Vivant fabrics with some Japanese ones! She also has a Fiber Art Furniture studio in Indiana.

I loved this cozy cabin booth too by Parson Gray (David Butler) for Freespirit! His collection is called Seven Wonders and I think people are going to have a blast with it. David also shared his new CD with us. His band is The Black Owls!

We also enjoyed meeting Sarah Watson – one of the new designers for Art Gallery Fabrics! Congrats to her on her new line and individual booth award!

One of the most amazing quilts displayed was Berne House Quilt. 156 blocks were made by these Swiss designers and in 2010 they were sewn together in this stunning composition – including the Berne clocktower!

We also loved this modern spectrum style quilt! It was a great show and got to meet both Debbie Outlaw from Moda and Nancy Weber from Checkers to talk about my 4 patterns! Will keep you posted..

After market we headed to Hugo’s in the Montrose neighborhood – for authentic and inspired Mexican cuisine & to see their famous Day of the Dead shrine!
