This Week :: International Quilt Market

Posted on October 22nd, by Amy in books, Market. 2 comments

If you happen to be on your way to Quilt Market, here’s what I have planned :

My posts for Blogger’s Quilt Festival are set and ready to go, look for those early Friday morning! Up next, I’ve got some quilts to get ready, and pack up from Think Big. I can’t wait to share more about this book with you! It starts shipping in December, so I don’t want to start too early, but it is coming! Scraps, Inc is a fun collaboration that I’m proud to be a part of

While I’m traveling, everything in my shop is 20% off with code : Market

All orders will ship on Monday 10/27, and the coupon applies to everything, including the pre-order on Think Big, patterns, and my favorite notions!

More soon –

Blogger’s Quilt Festival :: News & Catching Up!

Hi friends! I love seeing all the quilts you have entered in the Festival! If you haven’t entered yet, there’s still time!  Visit this post and select a category your quilt falls into, and link up.  Also, there have been lots of nominations, but there’s always room for more – select a favorite from all the categories to nominate for Viewer’s Choice.  I will sort through all the nominations over the weekend, and then we vote for our top three favorites!

I had a great Market experience with a full schoolhouse, and four signings giving me a chance to chat with a number of shop owners and fans.  I’m still in recovery and catch up mode around the house, but today I’m planning to ignore the laundry and enjoy my birthday! I think I will pull out my Dancing Stars blocks … Read More »


A Little Market Inspiration

Posted on November 8th, by Amy in Market. 8 comments

I say “a little” because I know there are far more comprehensive posts, but here’s what caught my eye while I had my camera in hand.  There’s so much to look at, and honestly my camera is often forgotten, despite my usual tendencies to photograph everything!

Robert Kaufman is making a 45% silk/cotton blend.  Radiance will be on the blog again soon – I love it!

Natalie of Cinderberry Stitches’ cute fabric for Leicen – it’s adorable!

I loved this bag – so sweet!

Fabulous chairs and pillows in the Moda booth.

A Walk in the Woods, by Aneela Hooey, due out in February – also adorable!

My Dizzy Kitchen quilt hanging in the Blend Booth!

Catching Up!

It’s almost been a week since I posted here!  How are you?  I hope you are enjoying the Quilt Festival!  I sure have!  I love seeing all your creations in thumbnails, awaiting my click.  I still need to visit most of you – all in due time ;)

Last week while finalizing details for BQF, I was also making plans to be at Market.  I’ve got a few irons in the fire, and once Sewing Summit was over I realized that I should be at Market to further develop relationships within the community there, and help sell my book!  It was a great weekend, and over the next few months I will be able to share a bit more as things progress.  For now – I have a bunch of pictures with blog friends :

Myself  with Kate … Read More »


News and Links – for you!

I have a few things to share with you today.

First, I contributed to a collaborative book – Modern Blocks!

I submitted 2 blocks, and they were both included.  This book will be available via Stash books this fall, and I’m looking forward to the advance copy coming later this summer!

Next, while at Market, I was invited to chat with Annie Smith from Quilting Stash!

The podcast is available today, go listen and learn how you can win a copy of Modern Basics!

Finally, I want to share about Quilts Recover -

From  Cheryl :

 

Earthquakes, tornados, fires, and more. The world is full of disaster news these days. The images and stories are gut wrenching. People are having to build their lives … Read More »


Quilt Market Recap

Posted on May 24th, by Amy in Market. 22 comments

Thank you for your birthday wishes!  I’m so blessed to be surrounded by my family and doing what I love!  I have a collection of pictures to share with you, first up – Press!

I was interviewed, along with a number of others, last weekend at Market, by a local paper the Deseret News!  Those are my quilts there in color in the second section of the paper – humbling!  If you would like to read the article it is available here.  Over the course of the weekend I also found that Quilter’s Home reviewed Modern Basics (positively!) and it was included in the June/July issue!

Now for the picture onslaught – ready?

I realize that I mention Natalia here a lot, but there hasn’t been a picture of us together – until … Read More »
