Fall Market '10: We've arrived! and Sample Spree Giveaway...


We're here!! After a few long, and very adventurous hours in the car (yes, that is very tongue-in-cheek, and kudos to all you certain folks who drove halfway across the country in your cargo vans) we have arrived here at the Fall 2010 International Quilt Festival in Houston! What happened tonight? Fabric 2.0, hosted by J. Caroline and Stash Books, Sample Spree, annnd we have a super secret sneak peaks of a few booths! (Snagged some goodies for a giveaway -- keep reading!)

Some adorable diaper bags made from Barbara Jones' line, Doll Babies.

Tula Pink's booth displaying her new line, Parisville-- so elegant, love it!
