Houston International Quilt Market...Set Up Day...

Shopping in Houston...

Oh the shopping!!! Seeing as you've been asking what I actually purchased while in Houston I thought that I'd show you a few things (some of them I am saving to show you in the next issue of Vignette!). My favourite fabric purchase was this new range 'Quite Contrary' by 'My Mind's Eye' printed by Riley Blake Designs- sooo delicious!:

And then I fell in love with the colours of this new range, 'Sunkissed' by 'Sweetwater' printed by Moda. (you must click on Sweetwater to see the photos of the booth at Quilt Market - you will not be surprised to know it won an award!) :

And this is something new for me that I am enjoying playing with at the moment (you will see more!!!):

Isn't it so yummy?!!! There's twenty four 6" x 5" slices of woollen yumminess (is that a word? It describes how I feel anyway!!):

They are hand dyed woollen pieces by Brenda at Acorn Quilt and Gift Company. You can feel the fun and love gone into making them when you meet Brenda:

And do you think I could resist a pack of eight of these in various colours? Obviously not:

So tomorrow I will show you a few other little purchases I made in Houston (lucky hubby doesn't read my blog!!!)

Until then,

Isn't Brenda the sweetest? And, that wool, oh my! Riley Blake it so stash worthy! And, the crocheted flowers. I really need a headband. Do you think I could pull it off at my age (39?)? Who cares! It's cute. I can hardly wait to see what you come up with.

WoW just love the fabric, I would have loved going to the show, itn't shopping for fabric just make ya want to touch then all and just trying to decide whick ones your going to get! I'm really liking the sweetwater...


I bet there's plenty of women that are also pleased that their husbands don't read blogs... or collect the mail... ;) Love everything that you bought! Especially the Riley Blake fabrics! The Sweetwater booth is gorgeous! Glad you had a great shopping experience in Houston!


Great choice !!! It's exactly the kind of fabric I love too! I can't wait to see what you will do with it !

Love the crocheted flowers.. and this is what I love too..so Leanne.. I cant wait to see what you will make of this!! *SMILES*


Oh my goodness...I think 'yumminess' perfectly describes your beautiful treasures. I can't wait to see what you make with them...that is, after you are able to make yourself cut into them. I always have to touch and look at and adore my new fabrics for a while before I can actually cut them. LOL. Hugs...


Haha -- I got those same fabric packs in Houston (eeek! I forgot to mention the Riley Blake on my post) except for the wool -- I totally missed that! I can't wait to see what fun things you do with your fabrics!


Oh so gorgeous! I love it all but the sweetwater fabic looks delish!
