Houston Quilt Market 2017, the shopping



The first question I always get asked after I get home from Quilt Market is...What did you get???
I didn't make it to sample spree this year, sadly, but I did find a few things to purchase on the show floor at the 'pop up shops'. I am so happy that the fabric companies are doing this now for those of us in the industry that miss sample spree and can't stay for festival.

I bought lots of luscious threads for hand quilting. I bought a book by Sue Spargo (to add to my collection because she is a quilting hero of mine!) I also picked up the last copy of a book from Quiltmania.


But you want to know about the fabric don't you? I did buy three bundles. I had to choose wisely because I bought the cheapo airfare that didn't include checked luggage, so I knew I had to carry on everything! I snagged two bundles from Windham, including the super cute new Sarah Fielke line called WordPlay and another bundle called Foundation by Shayla Wolf. And I got the very last bundle of Horizons by Kathy Doughty from Free Spirit.

I am still just admiring this lovely loot, I haven't actually unwrapped the fabrics yet. I'm trying make this experience last as long as possible. LOL

I also ordered a few interesting books from C&T and will share those when they arrive. I'm really excited about this new book my Maria Shell.

  2. Looks great. I have Maria's book, but I'm saving it for vacation. That way I will actually read it instead of getting sidetracked by pulling out fabric after the first chapter!

  3. Do you have any clothes in that bag??? LOL
