Pittsburgh Quilt Market 2009

There will certainly be many blogs in the crafting community that will tell you all about this Spring’s Qulit Market.  It was wonderful!  I can’t get over how seriously nice everyone is in the industry.  (The industry is huge.  Really huge.  Like I had no comprehension of it before I went last year to Houston.  It still blows my mind when I stop to think about it.)   I could post for days – but instead I will make it short and sweet.

Friday night Moda/United Notions had 3 boats to take their clients up and down the rivers of Pittsburgh during a catered dinner.  It was so nice!  The company was great, the food was good and the views were wonderful.


I ordered a lot of fabric. I picked up a couple new companies too that I am anxious to share with you.  If I had to pick my favorite this market (which is a REALLY mean thing to do to a fabric lover) it would be Lantern Bloom.  Last fall in Houston I found out that Laura Gunn was working on a fabric line for Michael Miller. I have been anxious to see it since that day when her sister-in-law, Heather Bailey, introduced us. I was not disappointed. In fact, I was blown away! I am SO excited to get it in my hands!

I really could write so much more…so so much more. Maybe another day!

    Laura had a BEAUTIFUL booth. Great pictures. I’m jealous! Hopefully I can make Houston again this year.

    I love Laura’s fabrics too.. & that wall hanging. I want it. The little fabric example squares at Micheal Miller really don’t do her fabrics justice. Your photos are so much brighter. She might just need to hire you as her new photographer :).
