Winner: Longarm Quilting Workbook & New Giveaway

Good day from Houston, TX where today we began setup for the World of Susybee Booth (#537) at International Quilt Market. 

International Quilt Market is a wholesale event for shop owners, designers & creators to view "soon to be released" fabric and product lines.  The event is over the top inspiring and gets your creative juices flowing. 

I attended my first quilt market as a pattern designer (May 2015) in Minneapolis. Here are some fun pics from Quilt Markets since then...

Victoria Findlay Wolfe's  Star Power Quilt from Spring Quilt Market 2016.  Isn't it fabulous!! 


This is a quilt by Lisa Bongean and quilted by Linda Hrcka of The Quilted Pineapple.  The pattern is "Antique Flower Garden" by Primitive Gatherings.  It's created on Lisa's Primitive Gatherings Flannel Muslin with Wool Applique.  It's to die for -- this was on display May 2015 in Minneapolis.


This was my first Market "Make and Take" with Eleanor Burns -- the nicest quilter on earth!  

In the "Make and Take" sessions you learn a new tool or technique.  

Eleanor taught me how to piece (see the block lower right?)
LOL!
No straight jacket required.
After class I spent 45 minutes of one on one time with Eleanor -- she's warm, honest, and amazing.  


Here's one of the Instagram posts I did when Tula Pink released her first-ever quilt kit. If you have an Instagram account be sure to follow me there for updates from Houston, 2017.


and here is my first meeting with the very talented Moda Designer Kate Spain.
Kate showed us her Early Bird design carving -- isn't that amazing!


This year at Quilt Market I'll be presenting a Schoolhouse Session with my good friend Terri Butler for The World of Susybee... 
"More Creative Projects for Susybee Panels"
 Room 342A - 11:35 to 12:05
 
hosted by Karen Miller of Redbird Quilt Co, and Terri Butler. Both Karen and Terri are full of ideas for creative projects for the nursery.
Do stop by if you're in the area.

  3. I am so envious of your talent, I so want to time to practice and achieve some of that talent, and now I can see why thread weight is so important. Hard to believe there could be so much difference. I am a new Aurifil user and love it.
