Lovely surprise at Quilt Market

As usual, quilt market was a stitcher's feast.  We gathered masses of handouts promoting everyone's new products, gobbled up fabric bundles at sample spree, rubbed shoulders with the famous designers who's work we see in all the magazines... and tried to guess what ya'll want to find in SBQ next year.

One of the best goodies for me was meeting Australian designer Jen Kingwell. I made a quilt with our Caesar's Crown template set and her Gardenvale fabric line this year and I named it "What Would Jen Kingwell Do?" Your Great Grandma might have made this pattern, but it didn't rock like this quilt!

Adee is not only good at herding cats (since she has the onerous job of navigating for her directionally challenged boss - I get lost everywhere!), she's also internet savvy.  She posted a picture of my quilt on Instagram, and in far away Australia, Jen saw it, put it on HER OWN Instagram & shared it with Moda. When we went by her booth at Market she commented on the quilt in detail... Jen Kingwell remembered my quilt!!!!

To top it off, we're now stocking our Caesar's Crown template set in the shop and it's available on our website.  Watch our YouTube video to see how easy the templates work! We used the quilt in Jen's fabrics for the cover shot for our packaging!

Bonus: Our favorite find at Market was some amazing African fabric!  We can't wait to get it in!
