Friday afternoon, it was my turn to give a Schoolhouse for shop owners about my new book. Quilts and lots of before-and-after blocks that were so much fun! Here I am with my book and the quilt I made in 2003 for Usha's booth (Handloom Batik) -- a very early free-form quilt. Little did I guess I'd be writing about this one day.
I started today with a book signing. It was so great to meet people from all over, and to chat with them as I signed copies of my book. There were only a few dozen books available so everybody had to take a number. They won't be available till sometime in November -- in a couple of weeks. They will be in the fabric stores but Amazon will not have them for quite a while, yet.
Later, I walked the floor today, overwhelemed with everything - but got a few pix. There were still quite a few brown traditional quilts, but I also saw lots of bright colors.
Ran into Susan Brubaker Knapp this afternoon and it was fun to catch up. Her book, Point Click Quilt has been out since April. This is not the most wonderful picture but my iPhone was tired.
Tonight was another treat --dinner with two friends from Australia - Annie and her friend Annette. I have to say that the food in the Hilton restaurant is excellent and we had a leisurely, laugh-filled evening.
Are you tired yet of seeing my face in all these pictures? I'm not as cute as Miss Emma, but oh well.
Time to turn in -- I have to see the rest of the market and the rest of the quilt show. No pictures allowed of the best quilts, so that was that. But as far as Market - tomorrow I'll talk about what trends I am seeing and will try to get more pictures of the madhouse. I'm leaving tomorrow night -- to go home to 4-6" of SNOW in New Jersey. Good grief!
