I cannot believe that I get to write a Quilt Market recap. Going to Quilt Market has always been a dream of mine. All of the amazing creativity that goes into preparing and displaying these booths just blows my mind. I used to love reading the recaps and looking over all of the pictures online so when Cynthia of Birch Fabrics asked me if I wanted to go this fall, there was no question what my answer would be. It was seriously a fabric nerd’s dream come true. And this time, I would get to go, not only to help out Birch, but to sell my own patterns. The trip was amazing and I couldn’t be happier with how things went. I need to update my website with a Stockist page because my patterns are now available in over 25 shops around the world!
Tula Pink was my first celebrity spotting on Friday. It was so cool and totally surreal to see so many faces that I recognized from reading about them online. I totally dorked out trying to chat with Heather Bailey but luckily I kept my cool when I finally had the chance to meet Angela Waters, my quilting idol on Saturday. She was amazing and as nice as I could have hoped.
Here are some pictures of the Birch booth. Seeing all of my quilts and projects on display was a really amazing moment.
Here is the view of the booth with the order table.
