Quilt Market Spring 2011

Ahhhh. Another Market come and gone. I have to say that it was a stressful time of year so it felt like it took a lot of effort to get myself there but boy did I have some fun! One of the highlights was seeing My girl Violet (in the middle) show off her new collection with Michael Miller, Peacock Lane. We Yams are so proud of our girl! I wish all of the Yams could have come to Market!

This is Bari's booth. It was so pretty- her husband made her some beautiful shelves to go in there and it complemented her fabric so well. The collection looks great online but is a real stunner in person.

My sweet Monica! That little coat is made from a pattern designed by our pal and fellow Yam Shelly. Her patterns are so sweet and like a breath of fresh air!

Here is a peek at Shelly's booth at Market. I am not kidding- look at how cute those are! Sweet and tailored and such great little details.

Monica being demure with her gorgeous Happy Mochi Yum Yum! Put out by Lecien. Can't wait to make Maya something cute out of this!!

The best thing about Market is getting to see all of the friends I've made in this biz. I don't have photos of everyone but I also finally got to meet Heather, Rashida, Paula and Jennifer face to face and it was so nice! Oh and Aneela who was such a doll! Her Little Apples is so cute! Just so nice to connect with folks face to face after getting to know each other on line.

One more photo of me and Vi. I met Violet awhile back and got to go through her whole shopping around her collection phase into it getting picked up and printed and I can't tell you how great it was to see it all come to fruition for her. We get to hang out here in Portland and she is one heck of a nice girl.

Who doesn't love Kona solids? I loved this little display.

Valori's booth was gorgeous. So many great colors and layers. Just really beautiful.

I aodre this photo of Lizzy! How cute does she look?! Her booth was great.

So that is the very condensed version of what went on those few days. Salt Lake was gorgeous. So clean and pretty with the mountains. The flight back was really bouncy but luckily I had Kristin there to hold my hand. As I type I keep thinking of other fun things that went on but if I don't stop now I will be here al lnight and I have a messy house to clean and a baseball party to go to!
