Houston Quilt Market

We're home from market and have spent the last week playing catch-up. Maybe life will finally slow down a bit. Market this year was new for us as we found ourselves both buying and selling.

On the selling end, we were happy with the results of our first wholesale show. We received positive responses from everyone. It will be exciting to see our patterns show up in shops across the country. Here's a picture of our booth.

As buyers, we found so many new wonderful patterns, books, notions and fabric. A few of our favorites include....

Henrietta Turtle by Heather Bailey - I can't resist a turtle. Too cute!

Sophie & Friends fabric and pattern by Bonnie Blue Quilts - very sweet in pink and brown.

Junk Bag by Jackie Clark Designs - we loved this bag!

And this...not a pattern, just a cute way to use ribbons and trim. What little girl (or big) wouldn't love these jeans!

We have so many new items arriving daily and the girls will be madly sewing new samples for "Enchanted Evening and Market Preview", held on Thursday, November 19 from 5 to 8pm. This is a fun evening where we premier all the wonderful new items from quilt market and Old Town Clovis is decked out in all it's holiday splendor, complete with twinkling lights, holiday music and even horse drawn carriage rides.
Quilt Market always inspires me with new colors and designs. Now I can't wait to get back to sewing again. Hopefully I'll be able to find some free time, before all the craziness of the holidays begins. So check back soon for sneak peaks and more QP chatter.
