so here's a quick version of my quilt corner experience. it started on wednesday driving down to kansas city and then getting there and setting up. the heat was brutal in there setting up, i wasnt feeling that great and i think the heat was a little push for the need to buy some cleratin for the allergy relief i was looking for.
thursday was spent in meetings and schoolhouse.
the allergy thing got worse enough to make me want to squeeze my head to relieve some of the stuffiness going on in there, and i had some kind of sexy low voice thing that came with it. pretty sure i sounded like i should have been singing in a smoky lounge with the stage name of "Star" but you do what you need to do and i "sexy" talked all day long friday through sunday. maybe it helped my sales. don't know...
book at the moda booth which was lots of fun. even if i forgot how to sign my last name for a minute (pretty sure the cleratin was wearing off by that time!)
book and in my craftsy class (dude, we have over 1,700 students in the class! whoot!!!)
and the faux pleated pillow can be found here
AMY who made the cute dresses for me. :) and the skirt im wearing. :)
i love how it all came together.
i hope i can create another line i love as much. ;)

just a little over a yard and half of continuous of the ombre fabric will make the top of these chic baby blankets. and the backing fabric is as well part of my line. tutorial coming in the fall when the fabric comes out. :) that way i don't torture you too much by showing you how to make it without being able to get some of the fabric! :)

the 2 amy's werent the only ones that helped me make this market happen. megan (ahem and megan's awesome sheriff of a dad that likes to sew), jeni, and deedee were there to help me the month prior to market as well. these girls helped at market, but they were there when we were sewing up a storm to make the quilts in a weekend, and to test bag patterns, and keep me positive and not overwhelmed.
and then of course my quilts needed to be quilted and they were shipped off to Darla Padilla, who did a wonderful turn around sometimes in one day a few quilts. :)
