Fall Market, 2013

We've started leaving a day early for Markets. 
I really like it - we don't start the booth process worn out and exhausted.  We got to the convention center around 10:00 on Thursday and set about setting up.  
And I'm really glad we were so early this time because we got to see the Moda booth go together.

Moda's theme this year is 
"Make a Splash with Moda"

And these guys sit atop the booth structures where they hang the quilts.

The whale blows bubbles.  :)

I'll take you on a fast tour - have to get dressed and get going but I have a minute to take you half way around the Moda booth.

Barb & Alma from Blackbird Designs -

Basic Grey and Deb Strain -

Brigette of Zen Chic (all the way from Germany) -

Kathy Schmitz (all the way from Portland :)

Edytka and Micheal of Laundry Basket ( the picture is blurred because she never sits still - just teasing, - I think)

Polly Minnick & Laurie Simpson -

And then, my booth.  I always take some of the older quilts as well as the new quilts.  My line for next  spring is called Front Porch and will ship in January. Those quilts are in the back and on the right. There's one outside too but I forgot to take a picture.  I also will have a pattern for the little "Snow Friend" wallhanging this fall as well as a kit.

Anyway, that took us half way around the Moda booth.   I'll try to get the other side today.
Happy quilting.
