Hello Friends! I hope you are well. I have quite the traveling adventure this time around — a constantly screaming child on the plane for three hours, a guy at the waiting lounge moaning about forgetting his comb on his trip (I was forced to listen in on his side of the conversation because he was talking so loudly!), delayed flights etc! I enjoy watching people at airports, so I didn’t quite mind the aforementioned hiccups in air travel!
The acclaimed red and white quilt exhibit is at Market this year – an overwhelmingly amazing collection.
And there were hundreds upon hundreds of quilts in addition displayed in the special exhibit hall. Many of them are documented in this book, 500 Traditional Quilts by Karey Bresenhan. Photography was not allowed – so, I just bought the book. You may purchase the book here.
Following are just some of the pictures I managed to snap here and there about 40 minutes before I headed out to come home. I hope the pictures, which by no means exhaustive, will give you a glimpse of the workmanship, displays, colors, and just the general hustle and bustle on the floor.
More about this cute fox later!
Dear friend Annelle emailed me about seeing pictures from my Schoolhouse session on Recreating Antique Quilts here on Fat Quarter Shop’s instagram page. The Fat Quarter Shop team has posted an unbelievable collection of Market photos! Check out their Instagram page for more photos!!

I skipped out a bit early on Market, but I was there and back! I am exhausted, and I still have to unpack, sort through business cards and catalogs, catch up with laundry and meal plans, and get back to my “real” life!!
If you asked me what my favorite part of Market was — Besides meeting and making new friends, it was being able to meet the wonderful people in the industry with whom I work FACE TO FACE! The personal contact solidifies the friendships for even more adventures! With that, I shall sign off for the day! Have a great week.
