 One of my favorites this week is actually a book I am honored to present: it's a compilation of fifteen different scrap quilts by a great group. I'm honored to have been asked to contribute a quilt for the book. Scraps, Inc.Vol.1: 15 Block-Based designs for the Modern Quilter was introduced at Quilt Market in Houston, and so I can finally share my quilt.

My friend Natalia of Piece 'N Quilt did the amazing quilting. My challenge was to quilt with scraps, and I ended up being rather successful until I had to buy a quarter yard to have enough of the binding fabric I wanted to use.

Fall 2014 Quilt Market Part 3: Moda Booths

 I'll warn you now that there are a lot of Moda photos in this post! I wish I could have gotten a photo of every Moda designer with their collections, but I was in such a hurry this market that I took most of my photos before market opened to make sure I could get photos of the fabrics without crowds. Of course, I meant to go back and get more photos with people in them...but things were pretty fast-paced for me this time around. Today's photos are primarily booth photos. I'll share close-ups of some of my favorite collections soon.

I loved the Basic Grey collection, Fresh Cut. It was so of my favorites from the showroom floor for sure!

Quilt Market Part 2: Fig Tree and Kate Spain

 Moda's theme this year was "there's no place like Moda;" this theme was aptly chosen as the Moda section was awe-inspiring and amazing as usual. I'll share a few photos of the Fig Tree and Kate Spain booth sections today, and I will share more Moda booth photos in my next post.
