Quilt Market in Kansas City was invigorating and colorful! Lots of impressive fabric lines, plenty of new patterns, a couple of gadgets and a few new stellar books caught our attention. Kristina and I had a chance to hop around a bit on our way to market and enjoy several fabulous shops on our journey. The weekend was topped off with the birth of my first grandson, Edward Michael-life is a blessing! Today's topics: Baby and Books
Proud Grammy pictures first...
I'm in love...I will get to visit and cuddle him soon!
Book FAVS from quilt market:
The Quilters Hall of Fame I hope to post extensively about this book. This is a fantastic biographic book of our quilting "fore-mothers", all who shaped the art and industry as we know it today. In a day where anybody who can blog becomes an icon, I will take pleasure in sharing stories of women who gave and created tirelessly for decades to help our quilting passions and opportunities evolve.
Scrappy Firework Quilts - Edyta Sitar is in a league of her own! This amazing book is based on strips, scraps, triangles, and 8-pointed stars. Great color, great tutorials, she makes show stopping quilts attainable.
Big Blocks Big Style - Gudrun Erla of GE Designs has an excellent new book with both a modern and scandinavial flare.
Little Quilts 4 Little Kids - by Heather Peterson of Anka's Treasures. This is the most fun kids book I've seen in a while. It will surely please both mommy and grammy-not always easy to do :)
Stay tuned to our enews and facebook, more market fun to follow.
