It's Quilt Market Time!

Well, it was- last week, anyway. There's so much to cover, I don't even know where to begin.
First up, with all the new goodness on it's way, I need to clear some space on my shelves!

I got to Salt Lake City with my favorite travel buddies, Monica and Mo. This was a rotating billboard and it just happened to turn to this right when I took the picture. So perfect! It was a sign!

Then, after checking in to our hotel, we immediately jetted off to Patty Young's Schoolhouse lecture. I got to be a part of her Kyoko Misses fashion show!


If you're wondering about that fab fabric I used for mine, it's the new Peacock Lane by Violet Craft. It will be available this summer from Michael Miller!!

Later that evening, my girls, The Sweet Hot Yams and I threw us a grand Yamboree! Lot's of amazing fabric and quilty people stopped by to see us, eat desserts, drink and celebrate!
Here are the 1/2 of the Yams that got to go to Quilt Market. We missed our other 1/2 that had to stay at home and hold down the fort.

Johnny Disco, the best bartender!

That pretty much sums up the first day! So, how about a giveaway? I've brought back a bunch of goodies and little snippets of things to come.

Why don't we start with this little bit of brilliance by Izzy and Ivy Designs? They're called "Sprinkles" and it's all packaged in a cupcake holder! Brilliant!! I'll be carrying these in my shop soon, so keep an eye out!
When I used to make children's clothes, I would add a little label for my customers. But the clothes I made for my daughter never got one. Then, later on, I would never know what size the different items were. Doh! I wish I had a kit like this. And look how CUTE it is!! You get 2 of each size tag, from size 6 mos. to 8, and labels. Well, you're supposed to get 2 of each label, but I honestly don't know where the other Izzy and Ivy label has gone. So, you're only going to get one of those. Sorry!

Since I probably had the most fun and laughed more than I ever had at any Quilt Market, due mainly from all my hilarious friends and their stories, leave a comment and tell me something funny! I'll pick a winner Monday.

Thanks to Heather for most of the party pics! I was too lazy to get my camera out.
