Market Brings New Story Quilts, Ideas, Whimsy, Charm and Color!
I wanted to start with my witch quilt because it is so perfect for Halloween
This is Ceceile from "Just My Imagination" button company. The little sheep she is holding is going to travel the world with different designers...I am going to make one and take her with me to the places I will be traveling this year. So for sure she will be by a flower in West Virginia, by something great in Chicago area and in DesMoines in the Fall...I need to look at my calendar for other places. OR maybe this little sheep needs to be a COW! How fun would that be?
Please buy buttons from her and also Teresa's Hillcreeak buttons. Teresa is going through a really rough patch in her life and she is such a wonderful person with a great product!
This was one of my most favorite quilts...a story quilt with actual dress, gloves and hat! Oh the story this told and the ones I could have told with my Mom's and Grandma's dress's.
A whimsical story quilt...isn't this wonderful and happy???
I did a painting many years ago that had my Grandmother holding a pie on her porch....I sold it and wish I had it...this quilt reminded me of my painting...I love it!
So, when I slept in a bit or maybe I went back to the room to get something, I can't exactly remember, I was going back to the Houston Convention center and these two girls were ahead of me....now I am not sure but they don't look much like the quilters I know......
How is this for a wonderful quilt???
I thought this tree was quite wonderful because it wasn't about the tree as much as the background...
This quilt from Iowa is a Van Gogh Cow for the cow parade...isn't she wonderful? The border is just awesome as are the flowers and I LOVE her face!
Are you thinking about doing a cow? PLEASE do!
Sunflowers go well next to the cow!
How long do you think it took this person from France to make this?
Mel and I had a lot of fun at Market and I am preparing a new Hoochy book since mine are now sold out. I will be adding alot of new ideas and new quilts and hopefully many new friends will learn the charm and sheer delight in making these quilts!
