Hey everyone, I'm back and had a marvelous time. I left extremely early on Thursday morning, so early that I was able to photograph - Sun Rise over New York City!
First thing I did once I set foot in Houston was officiate the beginning of market by enjoy my first margarita ... Cheers!
The Moda theme for market was "quilters are super heroes in disguise" and what an appropriate theme it was, for me anyway. It was at this market that I finally had the opportunity to meet my Quilting Hero, Lynette Jensen of Thimbleberries.
I have always wanted to meet her. She was/is so such a part of my quilting experience. Last night I counted the number of Thimbleberries books I own and the total is ... 14 books. Although I have cleaned out my quilting library numerous times, I could not part with her books. For me, her books are a connection to my quilting past ... besides ... I still like her style!
Lynette is back designing her traditional Thimbleberries fabrics with RJR. She also has a new book coming out in January 2017 - Thimbleberries with an Attitude. I love the title! In her new book she takes her traditional quilt patterns and gives it a modern spin by using fabrics designed by Cotton + Steel.
Another schoolhouse I enjoyed tremendously was hosted by Martingale and Moda All-Stars Mini Marvels. The theme was Super Heroes! What fun it was to see the Moda designers dressed as Super Hero Quilters.
I actually won the book as a prize! I just couldn't believe it! I so rarely win! You can just imagine how excited I was.
That's it for now! Stay tune for part 2!
Thanks for stopping by! Catch you later! Cheers!
