Back in Time

Okay for the first of my BACK IN TIME posts…

The Bridges of Pittsburgh fascinated me while we were there at Quilt Market. Every color, every size, every style… just beautiful. In fact Pittsburgh was enchanting all around. Despite what most folks think of when they imagine Pittsburgh, the city is full of culture, shopping areas, beautiful architecture and an amazing amount of rivers and bridges…. In fact the only other city in the world that reportedly has more bridge per size of city is Venice!  Pittsburgh boasts 446 bridges, can you imagine that?!





And that was the outside of the city… 

On the inside of Quilt Market there were of course even more beautiful things to look at. You have already had a chance to see all of the fabulous MODA designers here, and more fun designers here, and way more all around the web.

I didn't get a chance to get out from the MODA hub much. But I did walk about 1/2 the floor on Sunday afternoon and here are just a few beautiful things that I saw…

Ranging from the most TRADITIONAL:

Minick & Simpson beauties…


3 Sisters does it again with Aster Manor….


To the NEW & UNIQUE:

Galloping Pony Studio. Their minimalist, neutral style caught a lot of attention. Always nice to see something completely different from everything else.


I know you can't tell here, but each of these little miniatures isn't more than an inch or two across, just tiny.


To the most colorful. You know me I am always attracted to beautiful color…

Renaissance Ribbons has the most gorgeous colors and patterns of ribbons. It almost makes me want to do something with ribbons!

And no Quilt Market would be complete without the requisite shots of Amy's booth.




Lecien fabric booth


Hey look at that, we are slowly catching up a bit in my post "qeue".

And last but not least, a few of my friends have been having a whole lot of fun with a certain silly pic of me from Market. 

They keep finding a resemblance between the shot and this beauty…. Personally I don't see it but like I have told them, I will take that comparison  ANY DAY OF THE WEEK!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Talk to you soon.

    I think the resemblance to Audrey is remarkable! I loved your booth and was pleased to have a chance to speak with you for a moment. I’m also excited I managed to get a fat quarter pack of your new fabric – I totally love it!

    Great photos. I’m fascinated by that trolley going up the mountain. It looks like it has a beautiful view.
