Visual Bliss, Spring International Quilt Market

Fabrics, designers, authors, editors . . .  over the next three days I will be gloriously surrounded and energized by the creative ingenuity of International Quilt Market.  This is a wholesale market melding the quilt industry with quilt retailers.  Everyone is looking for the next best "must have" item.  I will be viewing new patterns...
Betsy and Margaret
MorninGlory Designs
talking to writers...
Karin Hellaby
UK Quilt Shop Owner and Author showing her new title Pineapple Express

finding creative uses of ribbons and embellishments...
Ribbons, Ribbons and More Ribbons
River Silks . . .  Ribbons of course!
wishing I took more time to sew . . . 
Love the chair and rug
Sorry I don't remember the fabric vendor

and visiting with friends along the way . . . 
My friend Zsuzsanna (right) is a Bernina dealer from Switzerland.
Zsuzsanna always wears spectacular suits that she made.  Check out the embroidery on her sleeve.
Kathy Davis is signing her book.

International Quilt Market with all its creative talent and new products is a visual bliss that you will soon see in your local quilt shops.  I'm off now for Kansas City, MO, The City of Fountains!
