430: home from quilt market!

I didn't die!

My Schoolhouse was packed--- over 200 people, you guys---- and I didn't die!

In fact, some say I rocked it, with my own brand of Anxious Charm (tm).

Ha!

I seriously can't believe that I agree to do these public speaking gigs. I get so Freaked Out about them.

I'll be back later with pics and details about  Schoolhouse.

 I don't know why, but I love seeing the giant crates that the companies pack all their stuff into for shipping to Market.

I totally stole the idea of taking a pic of this from my dear Beth Dunn:

I know, this could hardly be a worse picture, but I was so psyched when I walked into the Andover sales meeting and saw this front and center:

THREE Swoon quilts that Andover had made up! Oh man, they looked amazing.

Here is a better shot of the pink one:

I really wish there had been room in the booth to display all three quilts because they  were so striking.

 I am so so happy that this line is out! I believe it ships this month, maybe in a couple of weeks.

And yes, that quilt will have a free pattern download. I'll let you know when it's available, of course I will!

More Quilt Market recap soon!

P.S. Big thanks to my dear fiend Beth for accompanying me to Quilt Market! I'm so lucky!
