Houston Quilt Market 2012

Posted by Cindy on Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Houston Quilt Market just ended and this is my first chance to post pictures. 

Set up 

With 7 packed crates it takes a while to set up and take down.

We all look on while Jenna finishes the floor ... never mind that she is the one that is pregnant!


Sample Spree

Sample Spree is crazy, but fun because of all of the energy in the room.

Open For Business

Take a look at Flutter by The Quilted Fish ... WOW!

Take a walk with us around our booth. 

Second stop, The Simple Life by Tasha Noel. This is her beautiful debut line that just arrived in August.

Matt is meeting with customers, but check out the QR code quilt behind him. This quilt was created by the Midnight Quilters for the September issue of Quilt Trends magazine. Our Riley Blake Solid fabrics are highlighted in this quilt ... It's BEAUTIFUL! 

Lila Tuller's Black and White line Mystic was a hit and she won 2nd place for her booth. 

We also featured Hello Sunshine and Super Star.

The very back of our booth is our Make and Take area. You can see Lori Holt's quilts created with her new templates.

Emily Taylor had 2 lines on display. Avignon and Pirate Mateys. You can also see Lori Holt's display of Polka Dot stitches and bit of our new Christmas line (A Merry Litttle Christmas).

Look at Sweet Cakes ... Hard to resist this line by doodlebug.

Prairie Rose is Sue Daley's Debut line. It shows off a fun traditional side of Riley Blake Designs.

Of course we had Chevron on Display, PLUS our new "School Color" Chevrons ... You'll love them :) 

Nancy Zieman dropped by for a visit. She is amazing and we loved seeing the bags she made out of our fabrics.  *We are thrilled to have her as a keynote speaker at our retreat next September.

Sandra Workman's debut line Happy Ever After is so endearing ... The crown quilt was a big hit.

We had a lot of make and takes ... Over 300 people participated!

Many made pincushion wristlets taught by Deonn Stott.

Sue Daley showed her method of paper piecing. It makes paper piecing so easy! Sue will be teaching at our retreat next September. You don't want to miss it! 

In our make and take area, we had our pincushions on display.  Everyone loved to see these adorable pincushions in person.

Emily Taylor taught her tutorial on pin tucks.

Here's Emily in her booth with Kay Witt. Emily used Kay's dress pattern to make the beautiful dress she is wearing.

Well that's all for now ... I will post more photos soon.

How about we end with a photo of our team being silly ...

We "Mustache" you to come back to see more photos.
