It's that time of year again, the QUILT MARKET RUSH!
The fall season, quilting industry trade show kicks off the International Quilt Festival 2014...
(Market first, for the trade only, then FESTIVAL for everyone to attend.)
All the new products, like books, fabrics, notions, you name it... It's the big mama of quilt trade shows in Houston... then Festival hits, and the general public comet see all the amazing quilts, and the massive area of vending... it's SIX FOOTBALL fields long... just saying...
Anywho, about Market:
Designers, industry folk, authors, etc are usually going out of their minds about right now... Emails are pouring in, dates and appointments are being set, product presentations, (called schoolhouses) are being prepared... and well, quilts are feverishly being finished...
I am no different. I have two schoolhouse presentations at this Fall market. One for my new Book, Traditions Made Modern,(pre-order here) coming-out in January, and one other schoolhouse for my exciting new products! Details coming soon!
I've been sleeping like a rock this past week from all the creating going on over here at the Bumble Beans Studio!
I'm hand finishing some details on the last few quilts. (above)
10 quilts were made in all. Two last week, three in the last two days. the very last piece is on my long arm now.
Three need binding to be finished. All need labels sewn on.
I am in the home stretch! I am hoping to have them all done by Friday!! Wahoo! They are so much fun to make... though, so I am not complaining, I find I can really find my creative groove this time of year, and things just flow...And I plan on showing you them all in posts, next week! YAY!!
Off to bind!
Have any of you gone to the International Quilt Festival?
See some of my old posts about it, here. some are pretty funny. LOL
