International Quilt Festival – Houston

Oh, I’d like to go to Houston, but I am not introducing any new books or reproduction fabric lines at Quilt Market, and it’s so nice here in late October ….

that I think I will just stay home and Photoshop a virtual booth.

If Karla, Deb and I were going to have a booth we'd be doing the over-the-top Civil War anniversary theme in a Gone With the Wind booth to promote the 1862: Battle Hymn line. We'd be bound to win the Best Booth competition.

Now you might be saying:

“Fiddle dee dee. War, war, war. This war talk is spoiling the fun at every party…. I get so bored I could scream!”

So we could tell you about my other Moda fabric collections coming into your quilt shops this fall. Here's the schedule:

In shops in late October: Old Fashioned Calicoes

In shops in November: Morris and Company

In shops in January: 1862 Battle Hymn

Scarlet O’Hara doll by Madame Alexander

Karla, Deb and I have a lot of virtual sewing to do on those Scarlett O’Hara dresses before Friday. I think we are going to have to have some ribs removed too.

See some people who are getting ready for market in reality:
