Quilt market

    I had my very first international business trip the other week when I went to Houston for Fall Quilt Market! It was the most amazing, inspiring and exhausting few days.

I stood on the Moda stand with my ‘Hearty Good Wishes‘ fabric. I talked in Schoolhouse. By the way, I am never ever watching myself!

I also went to the Moda fancy dress party as a ship’s figurehead complete with a seagull on my head, which was great fun. You can see a little glimpse of my costume on the Minick and Simpson blog here.

Mark Dunn (Mr Moda himself) wore a shirt made from my seagulls fabric.

And last but not least, I met so many lovely designers whose work I have admired and whose fabric I have bought all these years. Quite extraordinary to be there with them.

In short, Quilt Market was a pleasure and a privilege.

And if you can’t sleep on the plane home you get to watch as you fly into the dawn.

    Congratulations my dear! You are going to be a huge success and deserve all the praise for all your hard work.
    I loved the shirt and thought it worked really well. I will have to get on with my stuff! I know what you mean about not wanting to watch yourself but you came across really well and they will definitely all love you x
