International Quilt Market Time!

I'm writing from Minneapolis today! My daughter, Bonnie Christine, and I are at the Spring International Quilt Market. As you probably know, she designs fabrics for Art Gallery Fabrics. This means that each Quilt Market is met with weeks of work on samples for her booth to show off her new designs. We arrive the day before market opens and, somehow, by the end of the day the booth comes together for us! Here is a look at her booth and a peek at her new line that releases later this summer. I love the calming hues of teals, purples and golds!

International Quilt Market with Bonnie Christine


Putting the booth together is so much fun...albeit a bit stressful because we know that there is a time deadline. Before market we are gathering props and making samples and planning the layout. Bonnie and I both made paper succulent flowers with our Cameo Silhouette cutting machine (love, love!)  to compliment her line, appropriately called, Succulence.

I fluffed and arranged the foam Succulence flowers that we had packed in our suitcase. Not sure about my hair. Must have been the high altitude on the plane...

So, the booth is finished and now I'm off to peruse Market to find the best of what's new and bring it back for you!

Thanks for visiting! Happy Sewing and God bless! Maxie
