I’m Not At Market…But My Quilt Is!

May 22, 2010 at 3:14 pm 9 comments

Up until a few weeks ago, we had plans at the shop to attend quilt market in Minneapolis. Alas, life has a way of interrupting the best-laid plans and so we are not there.  All the cool kids are there not to mention all the newest and baddest fabric that’s forthcoming.  (Did you hear?  Anna Maria Horner is going to come out with velveteen.  Printed velveteen.  It’s kind of making me week in the knees thinking about a mod jacket, a quilt backing, perhaps a wee dress or two?!)  Sigh…I really wish I were there in person, seeing all the amazing booths and meeting the designers.  However, I am completely Houston bound.  I will be there in October.

The other thing I’m missing in Minneapolis…. is this.

This is a little something I designed for Robert Kaufman to highlight the exciting new ‘Free to Grow’ organic fabrics designed by Nancy Mims, creator and brainchild of Mod Green Pod. She designs organic fabrics and vinyl-free wallpapers with a highly modern feel  I love her stuff!  I was so lucky to be asked to come up with something that would show off these amazing fabrics.  The release of this line will coincide with Robert Kaufman’s new line of organic solids!

I wish so much that I was there! (Can you hear the whine in my voice??)   If you are at market right now and reading this….will you go and wave to my quilt for me?  Maybe even hug it a bit?
