I had a really great weekend, all beginning with a long-awaited package that finally arrived at my house on Friday while I was at work:
Saturday morning I put on some tea, got to the business of carefully unwrapping my console table, and auditioning a few quilts in it.
I dream of eventually filling it with lots and lots of quilts. I love this sofa table, and now there is less of an echo in my family room!
I also finished quilting a quilt for someone this weekend, caught up on “Downton Abbey,” went on a long run with my rescue dog, Clarence, and went exploring with my min pin, Louie on two long bike rides along the White Oak Bayou trail.
Think he likes to bike much?
Quilt Market, here we come!
I am readying to leave for Quilt Market at the crack of dawn tomorrow and so excited to connect with everyone in the quilt business this week. I spoke to my mom yesterday (the newly avid quilter) and she asked me, “Pokey, have you heard of a company by the name of Moda?”
“Oh,” she says. “They have the prettiest line of fabric out. It’s by Basic Grey.”
I had to smile…I love her enthusiasm and I hope to share this with the Moda folks this week.
And in case you are going to Quilt Market and might have missed some previous posts about the venue, you can find out about some tips for preparing for Market by the Quilts, Inc. staff here, or learn more about Kansas City here.
