Home from Quilt Market

I returned home from Quilt Market in Portland, OR last Monday night. I thought things would settle down once I got home, but I am in full swing with work to do and lots of deadlines. I guess that is a good thing. Lots of new collections arriving from fabric companies (digital images to use with EQ) so I’m already gearing up for Fall Quilt Market in October. In case you don’t know what Quilt Market is, it’s a trade show with all things quilt related. There are fabric companies, pattern designers, notions, batting, threads, web designers, sewing machine companies, distributors, book and magazine publishers and lots of well-known quilters. Quilt Market is not open to the public, but you can attend the retail show – Quilt Festival – that is held in a number of cities. Go to http://www.quilts.com for information on dates and classes offered. What a great vacation for you and your best quilting buddy.

I took a lot of photos at Market and have posted some of them below. Some are of friends and acquaintances and some are of things I thought you might like to see. Here goes:
