It’s here!  I am sew excited to have my hands on these fabrics.  Tons of ideas for projects to sew on my new machine!  It’s so nice to see it on a bolt after working with strike-offs, you just can’t wait to see what it’s going to look like and feel like at the final stages!

Beautiful Baby Jacket

July 6th, 2010 by

One of the many wonderful things about going to Quilt Market is having women tell me about the project they are working on.  Connie Huddleston of The Little Wool Shoppe brought a project she was working on with her to show me.

IMG_5032

She was working on the Baby Jacket pattern and made it from an old quilt, some beautiful hankies and embroidered them.

Her project was not complete, but the work is lovely!  So happy to see all the talent!  Thanks for sharing, Connie!

Spring Quilt Market, Minneapolis

Finally getting a chance to post some photos and news from Spring Market!  First and foremost, I have to thank the staff at Benartex Fabrics for the hard work and detail that went into what I can only say is  a  delightful,  line of fabrics to create with!

IMG_5011

I had the privilege of meeting Nicah and Paula, Melissa while setting up our booth.  Very helpful!

IMG_5028

David Lochner, the president at Benartex Fabrics was thoughtful and brought the gentlemen that make our fabrics in Korea to the booth for Stephanie and I to meet.  It was very humbling and touching.  They had their picture taken in the booth with David and me, and where was my camera so I could get a photo?

IMG_5013

Our fabrics and patterns displayed so nicely together, the little owl family melted hearts!  The owl pattern will be available soon!

IMG_5027

The Little Flower Pocket Top and  purse received a wonderful response.   Miss Ava (my grandgirl) was the star on the new pattern cover.   The  World Map  fabric was popular,  it’s a  favorite.

IMG_5001

Our booth was backed up to Benartex, and they did a fabulous job displaying Baby Business and In the Nest fabrics made up in beautiful quilts and layette pieces placed in a white crib and vignette.  We had lots of traffic back and forth and were introduced to wonderful distributors and shop owners that will be carrying our fabrics and patterns! 

Jackie with Laurie Harsh

And speaking of wonderful neighbors!  How fun it was to be next to Laurie Harsh, her son Brian, good natured Barry, sweet Sarah and Megan.  We so enjoyed the wonderful and informative FabShop dinner, what a view from the 50th floor !  We loved staying at the Marquette Hilton hotel!   Fab Shop group is sharp, has all the tips, news and ideas shop owners need.  So grateful for their generous help!

Brian and Sarah FabShop

Bundles

We put together a free pattern and used some of our favorite fabrics from the Baby Business & In the Nest line, along with  the soft,  minkee blankee fabric  for the quilt backs.  Makes all quilts ever so dreamy soft!
