Workin' away in the @artgalleryfab booth! #quiltmarket, a photo by Jeni Baker on Flickr.
I flew into Houston on Thursday and was greeted at the airport by my sweet friends Jacey and Brenda! We met up with Rossie and Lynn and grabbed some lunch. The perfect way to start off a crazy weekend, I'm sad I didn't get to see more of them! As soon as I arrived at the convention center it was build, build, build! I worked with the Art Gallery Fabrics team unpacking, building and organizing the booth. We continued the next day and managed to squeeze in a few Schoolhouses too! On Saturday the show officially opened! Ready for lots of photos?
Art Gallery Fabrics booth, I shared a space with Angela Walters. Angela was showing her first collection, Textures. I was also showing my first collection, Color Me Retro! It was a lot of fun stitching up projects to fill these cubbies! I'll share photos of all the projects later this week!
Sewing Summit and Quilt Market. I had approximately two fat quarter sized strike-offs of each print to make everything you see in my booth! I was so happy with how far I was able to stretch it with the help of Art Gallery's fabulous blenders and solids.
Art Gallery Fabrics booth. That's Sarah Watson, one of the talented new designers, and Anais, the force behind AGF's social media!
Pat Bravo's booth featured one of her new collections for Fall, Rock n' Romance! It was so fun and edgy! I loved the lettering and all the small details, she even had a guitar in there!
Bari J went above and beyond with a fantastic ruffle bedspread and accessories! She was showing her collection for Fall, Splendor 1920! So much goodness!
Sarah Watson's booth was amazing! She drew with chalk all over the walls and even won Best New Exhibitor Booth! She was showing her collection for Fall, Luxe in Bloom!
Modernology and Paradise both by Pat Bravo! Thanks Pat! :)
