Thank you for sharing Quilt Market on Jolly Jabber. Being a customer (and living in Australia), the only way I get to share in the buzz of Quilt Market is via blogs or Instagram. Not only do I enjoy the coverage you and your staff provide, I get inspired to create. Again, thank you ;-)

Lee said...

I am loving Desert Bloom! Thank you for all the pictures and sharing the fun of Market!

Becky Schultz said...

Since Quilt Market is not open to everyone, thanks for sharing all of the booths! I found the most inviting (and my favorite) booth to be Sarah Jane's. The "bed-like" display you were sitting in made me want to curl up under that quilt, put my head on those pillows, and take a nap (to have the energy to see the rest of Market...if I were there :D)

KrisD said...

Slow and Steady wins the race in my book!!! Love, love, love the color that Tula puts in her collections! Safe travels back home!

Lostinspace said...

Thank you so much for virtually taking me to Quilt Market, I am such a Tula Pink fan that Slow and Steady has to be my favourite but after Les Fleurs I was very interested to see the new Zen Chic fabric Modern Background Luster. Just seeing this collection has inspired me to make a wall hanging in grey and black.
