The Blurry Before : :

The before!

This is my Quilt Market booth "before" shot! How silly of me to think that I could blog each day of this Quilt Market experience. I truly did imagine I'd have lots of downtime, at least at the end of each night, being away from the kids and the sewing machine and all, but no. This has been busier than I could have ever imagined, in the very best way! I want to be present for every single second of it, not behind the lens of my camera, a computer screen, or looking down at my phone. I'm taking it all in, having the most amazing time, and saving the picture taking for the end of each day.

Be sure to follow me on Instagram, where I do plan to share little snip-its beginning tomorrow, opening day of Quilt Market! Thank you so much for joining me on this journey, it's such a dream come true!

Off to Quilt Market!

We are off...well almost! Come early morning we'll begin our road trip to Houston for International Quilt Market. In just a few days, these pillows and many more will fill my very first Quilt Market booth space! 

Off to Quilt Market!

Tonight it's impossible for me to share in words all that I'm feeling right now. Just so much emotion over all of it! When I had learned that I most likely would not have any of my Wild & Free fabrics delivered before market, I was really beginning to doubt myself. I was unsure of how I could fill my booth space with just one small strike off of just seven prints. Then somehow, as I went down the list of things I hoped to make, adjusting each to work with what I had, with so much help from my stash of Art Gallery solids, blenders, and prints that coordinate with my collection from other AGF designers, everything was actually coming together. Then my knits came in and with lots of last minute sewing by several talented folks, together we managed to stock my booth with Wild & Free garments & bag samples to add to all the quilty projects I've been working on these past few weeks.

There have been some ups & downs, of course, but overall I really have loved this process. I can't wait to finally put all the pieces together!

I'll be sharing more in the days ahead, so be sure to stop back, and if you're at market please do come visit me at my booth!

Have a great week!     Maureen
