Quilt Market: Day 1

Hello Everyone!

First day of Market is all done and we have just wrapped up the biannual MODA party!  It was the most fun we have had in a long time. MODA hosted the party at the Minute Maid Ballpark here in Houston and as always they went all out on all accounts.


Great venue change! Its conveniently located 2 blocks from the convention center where Quilt Market is hosted so it couldn't be a more perfect location. Amazing Texas BBQ, good friends including MODA reps, designers, customers and mill reps and a really fun country western/old rock band made for a wonderful evening full of dancing. 


Day 1 of Market was fabulous and the new line, Buttercup, has been wonderfully received by our customers. The brand new patterns are flying off the racks and at this point I couldn't even tell you which ones are the best sellers. I guess I will have to do a count tomorrow.

I thought I would share a few pics of one of the new patterns that people are loving. Cute and simple. These are pincushions that anyone can whip up in an hour or so…

Strawberry Shortcake



And for those of you who are store owners who missed Market, here is what the pattern cover, front and back, looks like.


For those of you interested in getting  your very own, here is the link.

Will post with booth photos tomorrow. Promise.


talk to you soon.

    Strawberry Shortcake is adorable!! What do you stuff your pincushions with? Walnut shells, emery sand, stuffing?

    I love your new Buttercup line 🙂 This pincushion would make up as a super gift!
