Houston Quilt Market 2015 Re-Cap

Hello, hello!

I finally have some time to sit down and talk about how amazing the Fall International Quilt Market was! As always, I meet so many people, old acquaintances that is always grand to see again, along with some new faces! This time around, I didn't have a booth (sad face) but I had a wall which was, believe it or not, filled with countless #DareFabrics products. I prepare for Market months in advance because I want to showcase lots of product ideas for all of you to feel inspire and start creating. Needless to say, I did little sleep the last couple of days because new project ideas kept popping in my head☺ and I HAD to do them!

Those sleepless nights where the result of three wonderful quilts! While my "Venture" free pattern was constructed by the talented Carolina Moore from Craft and Moore  I am so happy to have worked with her, the finished quilt is just unbelievable. 

I had so much fun talking to countless of lovely people at sample spree, the atmosphere that day was out of this world. The love some of you have for my fabrics really puts a big smile on my face, many thanks to all of you that made the two hours long queue just to enter to sample spree..thank you thank you! 

Quilt Market day one was unbelievable, I got in touch with all of the lovely people that I haven't seen since Minneapolis and it was just grand, and of course, I get to spend three days with these talented and lovely ladies that inspire me everyday. So much love from all of you. Did you all seen Amy Sinibaldi's booth? It was so cozy ☺


What I love the most about Quilt Market are the future projects ahead! I meet up with the wonderful people of Electric Quilt and I'm beyond thrilled of the things to come☺☺

And clearly, the true show stopper was this HST quilt! I received Jeni Baker's The Half Square Triangle's book and got hooked. I was so inspired when I was flipping through the pages that I decided to make this outstanding quilt, what do you think?

Like I always say, good things come to an end, and at the third day mark, Quilt Market was over. I was so happy to meet everyone and hear everyone's reaction towards Dare Fabrics. Now it is time for me to prep some extra projects for the Dare Fabrics LookBook! I am so excited, it will be filled with countless of quilting, home decor and fashion projects! Stay tuned ☺
