Spring Market in Pictures

From set-up to tear-down, Spring Market was a whirlwind of activity.  Below are some pictures from my time in Pittsburgh.

This is one of my favorites from market.  Our dear friends, Karen & Bob, helped with our booth set-up.  Karen has been with me at many markets and I love how she is making sure things are getting done right.  In all honesty, we couldn’t have done it without them.  Thanks!!


All put together and ready for action.

Close-ups of the projects in the booth:

Blacksmith, Spring Sky & Hybrid-Hexi: Stripped Kites.  All using my new Creative Grids ruler, Kites Plus.


The top seller!  Gentlemen’s Agreement.  Simple, yet stunning in ombre fabrics from Maywood Studio. Note the bonus project on the chair easily created with a simple technique using the Clearly Perfect Angles.


My first venture with a small project book, “Tick Tock, Dresden Clocks“.  I was VERY pleased with how well it was received.


My red wall:  Seeds to Blooms, Round Robin Rebels Unite & Scandia Stag.



Much of my time was happily spent with Creative Grids as my new ruler, Kites Plus was introduced at market.

There were several School House events to attend:


Demos to do:


And getting to have a wonderful dinner with the other creative minds at Creative Grids USA!


I have to admit, it was fun seeing my projects and the new ruler being displayed several places at the Checker Distributor’s booth.



Market just wouldn’t have been complete without spending time with my fellow Round Robin Rebels!  Checker invited us to design a pattern bringing in favorite parts of our original No-rules Round Robin quilts.  Below are some pictures at Schoolhouse and at the Checker booth of “Round Robin Rebels Unite“.

We also spotted a quilt I made for BERNINA on a table in their booth.  You know how I love my BERNINAs!

The last day I was finally able to sneak away and took these photos of the sales floor:

The long days were made possible because my husband “worked” it with me for the first time! He was nervous, but he did a really great job.

 It was a wildly successful market and a whirlwind of fun!
