Back from market

Salt Air by Cosmo Cricket

So, I'm back from market a week now, and with being thrown right into a crazy (rainy) Halloween with the kids and then a crazy work week at the day job, I haven't had time to stop for a moment and even think about it, much less blog about it.

And here's the thing: I didn't take any pictures. Not a single one. I didn't even bring my camera. Go ahead, call for my blogger card to be revoked.

That's OK though, because Katy is doing a FABULOUS job blogging all about Quilt Market. Besides, she's cooler, smarter, and wittier than I am -- not to mention her kick-ass camera that takes way better pictures than mine -- so her posts are sure to be more entertaining than anything I could write. And since she and I were pretty much joined at the hip (along with our other Fat Quarterly partner in crime, Tacha), Katy's stories and observations are pretty much the same things that I would write anyway.

So go ahead, check out Katy's posts -- it'll be like you were there, hanging out with us the whole time:
... with more to come, I believe.

I will leave you all with a picture of something I was able to grab at sample spree. My bags came home noticeably lighter than from prior markets -- my stash simply can't handle much more until I actually start sewing with some of what I have -- but I couldn't resist this fat quarter bundle of Salt Air, a new fabric collection by Cosmo Cricket for Moda. I love it. I really, really do.

Here is a picture of some of the quilts that Moda had hanging in their booth, made from the line:

Photo by Katy, of course.

My only other acquisition from sample spree was a fat eighth bundle of Aneela's new line, A Walk in the Woods. It's fantastic. Foxes -- gah! Photos soon.


  1. Don't blame you for bringing that one home; its gorgeous!

  2. Salt Air is my favorite line from the quilt market pictures I've seen so far. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

  3. I agree, my favorite so far has been Salt Air. Thanks for sharing.

  4. No need to chastise yourself for the absence of the camera. It is good to share the responsibilities and savor the moments away from a camera too.

  5. it was so nice to meet you at market!

  6. j'aime beaucoup cette couette !
