Market Report

Since last post, I was quite busy making samples for Fall International Quilt Market in Houston. The quilt in the corner (tied) is the one I made for Kaari of French General. Designed by my dear friend, Penny Tucker. Penny originally designed this quilt using Kaari's first line of fabric with Moda, "Rouenneries". This time, we made with Kaari's newest line "Rouenneries Deux". A bit different from the original but it came out very beautiful. Do you want to see the whole design? I only have a photo on my bed before it was quilted. This pattern will be available from French General sometime soon. So please keep checking their website.
I also made samples for Lecien. Honeybun Basket and Puffy Basket are made with Lecien's new fabric "La Petite Mercerie" designed by Emmanuelle Carre.











My newest creation is this bag, "Korokoro". It means the sound of rolling around in Japanese. This round bag has the drawstring for the opening and easy to carry on your shoulder. The pattern will be coming soon.My best friend who works at Lecien designed this quilt. Isn't it so pretty? It's a free pattern so you can download at Lecien USA's website.
My favorite booth at this market was Blackbird Designs. I always liked their designs and taught some classes. I usually don't like butterflies but this quilt is very pretty. It's perfect to showcase the fabrics.


I have more stories to share with you, but I have to go now... I will try to come back sometime soon to talk about them.


Happy quilting!

I am so sorry I missed seeing you at quilt market. I didn't get out of the booth much. I saw your pretty projects and Nireko's wonderful quilt. So much to see in the Lecien booth. Glad you had fun.
