QUILT FRIENDS ARE THE BEST

Quilt Market is always so fun.  I really missed walking the show this time because there are always so many wonderful and creative displays, AND wonderful people.  I shared some of them with you already, and here are a few more.  I just did a quick run by at some of my favorite people's booths.

My friend Cori Blunt has such wonderful quilt patterns--she is amazingly talented.  I am lucky to call her my friend.

Over at the Quick Points booth, my friend Janet was absent, but her husband was manning the show!  Look at that cute quilt on the back wall--don't those fabrics look familiar?  She has a new ruler out now that does scallops, too!
I have a couple of patterns that use picot points, and the Quick Points Ruler really comes in handy here! 
The AHOY! baby quilt uses picot points in the border and for waves in the quilt center.  This has been one of my most popular patterns.

Trellis is another big seller for me.  I guess it could be the points that make these so much in demand--but I'm not sure.  It's hard to say what makes a quilt pattern sell.  I haven't figured it out, but if you know, perhaps you can share it with me!

 Another one of my friends, Emily, of Crazy Old Ladies won an award for her booth, too!  She has a new fabric line out with Michael Miller.  Congrats to Emily!

On Tuesday I will be guest poster over at Stash Manicure,  AND I will be introducing a new blog design.  I can't wait for you to see it.  I will also be having a fabulous give-away, so be sure to check in again on Tuesday!

I want to thank all of my wonderful readers for all your kind comments and helpful advice.  I really depend on you, and you make all of this worth it.  I just hope that you come away with a useful bit of information once in a while, too!
Thanks, quilters---You're the best!

I really love your sailboat pattern Jill. Prairie (picot?) points are one of my favorite things to add to a quilt. Mostly for baby ones, but you've shown me more I can do with them. Thank you!

one thing I love about my quilting friends is that I might not have anything else in common with them but when I go to the quilt groups and sit and sew we talk the whole time and do not run out of things to say - and I do not hang out with any of these ladies at any other time during the week.

I adore Cori as you do...and although I don't know her very well, I am certainly a huge fan of her appliquing...( is that a word) she is an artist...your shots were great...I am not awere of the others you spoke about...I have to get out from my screen sometimes..lol. Listen I still think your sailboat has me in a tail spin...just lovely...
