Quilt Market

I have just returned from Quilt Market in Houston.  There was so much to see, between all the merchant booths and all the beautiful quilts.  I will be showing you a few of my favorite quilts over the next couple of day. Todays  quilts are animals quilts I  really liked.  They part of the "Art Pictorial" catogery. They are amazing,  they look like painting.

 I ordered a lot of fun fabrics, patterns, notions and some other surprises.  The fabric will not be here until next year, and I have decided on some new projects for next year. 

Before market I made a few quilts for my good Friend Lissa Alexander for Moda.  I made three quilts (two were the same quilt.) The quilts were part of the displays in the Moda Booth.They we quilted by Karen Niemi.  

Lissa shows one of the quilts I made using the new Fig Tree Jelly Roll "California Girl" seems appropriate since I am a California Girl. 

Lissa talks about a new line from 3 Sisters called "Papillon." The original antique quilt is on the left.  the quilt she is holding up is the one I made. Lissa made the quilt hanging up on the wall. 

Moda fabrics has been involved with Quilts of Valor program.  We at Fabric Expressions made star blocks, and quilts.  Moda recieved so many stars they have come up with another pattern and kits that use the stars.  We will be receiving some of these quilt kits to make and donate to your local soldiers. This quilt was quilted by our own Crystal Zagnoli.
