Quilt Market Day 1

As promised, I’m writing reporting back on Quilt Market! It was my first day, and as a wide-eyed newbie, I was completely enthralled with everything! One thing that made me happy, happy, happy, was to be in Minnesota again! Here are the highlights:

The view from my hotel. Totally gorgeous!


Coquette™ in full force!


I hung out at the Northcott™ booth this morning before walking the show floor.


Shari Berry’s new line Child’s Play for Northcott™. So sweet! The ABC fabric is my favorite!


These felt cakes are SOOOOOO adorable! I loved walking the show for this kind of stuff!


Lunch with some new friends! Bloggers John, Kaye, and Jennifer (Jennifer’s friend Doe took the photo).


I picked up Jen Allyson and Deena at the airport after a day at the Convention Center. We went to one of my favorite restaurants Muffuletta in Anthony Park.


Here we are! Happy and full!

Okay, so that’s the wrap for the first day. Sorry there aren’t more descriptions but I need to get myself to bed for another fun-filled day tomorrow!
