I do and will have the best memories of Houston Quilt Market going forward. Some of my favourites were Franklin Quilt Co. where we purchased some of their fabulous quilt patterns. I really loved their patterns called Scrap Basket Shevron and Scrap Boxes Squares.
Michelle and I both were really taken with the company Lumenaris. They featured wonderful wool kits that would be a great addition to the store. So many wonderful choices of patterns and colors.
These young designers had wonderful bags called the Laura Tote and the Kate Tote…how sweet. We certainly want to offer their patterns at the shop in the future. Here is Iza Pearl of Iza Pearl Designs and Erin Schlosser of Schlosser Designs.
I really liked this modern quilt called Every Color designed and made by Alissa Haight Carlton. Very stunning and beautifully quilted. Simple fabric, brilliant colors.
One of the best memories was when we left the hotel for the airport today. Our luggage in the trunk, the two of us in the back seat and as the limo travelled over a slight dip from the parking lot to the road, you heard a big thump and scrapping as the back fender hit the pavement. We looked at each other and started laughing as we both knew the cause was Michelle’s overloaded suitcase in the trunk.
