Spring Quilt Market 2010

The International Spring Quilt Market was in Minneapolis, MN last week. As many of you know, I am celebrating my 20th Year! It was a great show and I got to hang out with so many great people.


My daughter, Camille, and I also introduced our third fabric line for Moda called "Bliss".

The theme for my booth was...

"Flowers,

Chocolates, (Florences Milk, Nut and Caramel are my favorite!)

and fabric...

Now that's Bliss!"

The sewing bags and ironing board covers were a hit!
(my 6 new patterns will be available on my web site next week)


My favorite quilt, "Cuddle Up Cozy" was a mix of our flannels (yes, we have 9 yummy flannels) and the Snuggles to make a super cozy throw quilt and pillowcases.



This is a picture of Camille's side of the Booth. Her quilts are so beautiful! I think she should give me one for my Birthday coming up soon! (hint, hint)
>We shared this yummy dessert at dinner one night. Many of you may not know this, but rumor has it Camille is afraid of large spoons.

She has a book coming out in the fall called, of course, "Simplify". Can't wait to see it!

This is a picture of me with two of my beautiful and very talented girls, Tracy and Camille. (next year in SLC, Emily) My oldest daughter Tracy also had a booth at Market for her business The Paisley Polka-dot that she does with her sister-in-law Christy. They were so sweet to make all the Moda designers badge holders with each of our fabric lines. They added a lot of "Bling" to our show with their watchbands and clusters.



Market wouldn't be the same without some time to catch up with Nancy from Art to Heart,

or laughing with Sheri Howard (she cut her hair in the hotel room with my Gingher scissors, doesn't she look cute)

And last, but not least, the wonderful Moda Design Team. They are the most amazing and talented people and I feel very honored and privileged to be associated with them.

Thanks to all of you out there for making the last 20 years a most memorable and wonderful journey!

  9. Bonnie, Your new fabric is AMAZING! :) AND I love the idea about the ironing board!!! I tried to make one for mine a while back, but I know a pattern would have helped :) You look amazing, you may have been doing this amazing craft for 20 years, but you look as young as your beautiful daughters! Glad to see you had fun with Camille and Tracy. Good luck with the new line and patterns!!!! Wish I was in Idaho to come and drool over them all in person!

  13. I can't wait for Bliss to come out...seriously what i've been looking for for months now. I've wanted to do a quilt with red and aqua. This fabric is exactly what I've wanted. Can't wait to get my hands on some. :) You and your daughters are so talented!
