Whew! That was wild



Hello blogworld...I just got back from quiltmarket in Pittsburg, PA. It was a lot of fun, and a lot of work, and to top it all off I got some weird sickness that attacked my vocal chords causing me to totally lose my voice and I had to use my sister as a spokesperson. But all in all it was pretty great!

This is a picture taken of Stella and I, showing a little bit of my booth for ya'll to peek at. This was taken by my friend Heidi from Quilthome. She is one of my biggest supporters, and I am one of her biggest fans! Their website is fabulous for finding all the great fabric you are looking for. They have an incredibly large selection, and their service rivals anyone out there. Besides that, they are just good friendly people that take their business seriously and really take care of their customers.
Here's the link:
QuiltHome.com.
There was a lot of fun stuff that happened there, and I promise to get you some great pictures of everything so you can sort of get a feel for what it was like.
But one really great thing that happened was that my booth was given the prize for Best New Exhibitor! That was a completely unexpected and totally shocking turn of events that lifted my sickly little spirits and made it all worth the trouble. But there were many fabulous booths there that I want to share with you, so give me a couple of days to "regroup", and send off my orders, etc...and I will get them up for you.
Also, be looking for the new patterns to show up on the right sidebar, as they are here, and ready to be ordered. I just need to get them all bagged up, and that's going to take some doing!

Thanks for being patient, and check back soon!

I love your booth! So beautiful and creative! Have to ask- the outfit you are wearing- it looks like your peasant top pattern. Is the skirt one of your newer patterns? I absolutely love both and would like to get the patterns.

Whoops! I didn't scroll down far enough- found the skirt pattern. Can't wait to buy it!!

Hey Lila, I hope you're feeling better soon! Your booth is amazing, and you did deserve to win.

I want to know how you finished that chair. I have one I want to recover.

Take care, it was fun to see you.

So sorry to hear that you weren't feeling well! But congratulations on the win! Your booth looks great!

And I agree about QuiltHome.com, one of my favorite places for fabric!
