I just remembered that I hadn’t posted any photos of Houston Quilt Market 2016.
Where does the time go???
My good friend Robin, Nestlings by Robin,
graciously offered to come along as my helper.
Chloe, my booth helper the past several years (& daughter)
took a new job that started October 31, so she wasn’t able to come along this time.
She is now working in the NICU.
I hope you never need her services, but if you do, you’re in good hands!
She is also working on her doctorate to be a Family Nurse Practitioner.
I’m so proud of her!
My quilt-as-you-go table runners/wall quilts were very popular.
My Tiny Dresden Seasonal Series was very popular as well.
My new favorite, Dresdens on the Square…
I love the muted colors of my booth this market.
Several Moda designers are accounted for here:
Jo Morton, 3 Sisters, Barbara Brackman & Laundry Basket to name a few.
While there, we (quickly) took in the Dear Jane exhibit.
Robin & I are contemplating making the quilt
so it was fun to browse the color combinations…
The reds are gorgeous, but I think I’d get tired of just using red.
Robin’s favorite had the black heart secondary pattern.
Leaving off the triangle border would eliminate a lot of work!
But don’t kid yourself, there are still 169 little blocks!
I really like these muted colors.
Interesting pattern in the gray triangle border fabric.
Another secondary pattern with the color placement of blocks.
It looks so different with brights!
I like the rainbow of muted colors.
It’s pretty similar to the original quilt.
Really like this one too.
And this one.
And this one…
I’m still on the fence as to whether or not I’ll start this quilt.
It’s quite a commitment!
What do you think?
Want to make one with us?
We’re still trying to figure out the time-frame.
169 blocks in the center and then another 56 on the border…
225 total blocks!
Just one per week would take 4 1/3 years.
What to do???
If I make the quilt I’ve decided it will be with civil war prints.
That’s in keeping with the original quilt.
For now though, I think I’ll
Just Keep Sewing…
