Rise and Shine...It's Quilt Market Time!

Ok, the cat is out of the bag! Guess where I have been this past weekend...

That's right the International Spring Quilt Market! This year the Spring Market was held in St. Louis, Mo. so how could I resist! I had an absolute blast and I got so many ideas for EllaKate's Quilt Shoppe! I can hardly wait to share them all with you in the coming months. Here are a few pics from market...
This is Jo Morton telling her about her new book, Jo's Little Favorite's II. She had all the little quilts there and we got to see them. You know EllaKate's has this book already on the way for you to see! By the way Jo is such a sweet person. She gave me a big hug after we met.
This is another class with Jo Morton. She has another new book, "Simple Friendships" that she did with Kim Diehl. Kim could not be at market so they had her face on a puppet stick and held it up for all to see. If you look closely you will see it in the Martingale Book Representatives' hand. It was pretty funny! "Simple Friendships" is beautiful! How can it not be...Jo Morton and Kim Diehl! You can check it out at EllaKate's.
I know, I know, all of you who love brights are wondering if I forgot you. Well never fear, here is "Me and My Sister" from Moda showing us their new Dresden Plate Ruler and numerous quilts that can be made from it. 

I will post more later. For now mark your calendar for FUN & FABULOUS FRIDAY, June 9th. or give me a shout if you would like to come on over before then!
Until next time...
Keep Stitching!
