Quilt Market

I just got back from Quilt Market the other day and it was such a blast!!  I absolutely loved meeting lots of my sweet online friends, seeing new fabric collections and viewing all the beautiful booths!  It was my first time going and will definitely want to go again!!  The only problem is it went by way to fast!


To not have several posts of quilt market I'll warn you now that there is a lot of photos in this post (hope you don't mind).  I'm dividing them into sections so you can just scroll down and see all the pretties!!  :)

I went with my two Sil's Ninzel and Tasha.   During the day I was mostly off on my own at different booths for appointments to view new fabric collections, and then in the evenings we were able to hang out and have fun in downtown Portland.

Some of my favorite booths~

One of the funnest parts of quilt market was being able to meet up with a few of my online friends!  It is so great to be able to put faces to names and actually see there are real people on the other side of the computer.

Well I think this has to be the longest post I've ever done!!  I apologize for not doing it in several posts.  I just know I wouldn't get back to showing you more.  This week I'm catching up on the shop and need to get working on my Pillow Talk Swap.  So I'll be back soon, probably next week!
