Quilt Market!

I’m in beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah for Quilt Market and if you’ve never been here, it’s really a beautiful place. Snow covered mountains surround the city and there’s a nice, peaceful, vibe to the area. Here’s what our booth looked like when we first arrived:

Isn’t that a cold, dreery looking space?! Here’s a shot of it once it was close to being set up (note that the overhead lights are all off, so it’s much darker than during the actual quilt market:

The Mormon Tabernacle is just a few blocks away from the convention center, and there are lovely gardens that surround it where you can just walk around and take it all in:

(Check out all those irises on the left side that are just ready to explode open…gosh I wish I could see that!) One of the other really nice things I’ve gotten to do this Market is to meet Sarah Vedeler. If you haven’t seen her work, it is a feast for the eyes! She creates digitized embroidery designs for applique work, and her quilts are just lovely. I wish I had taken a photo of her latest “Go Bloom” creation because the colors are great and the meticulous detail in her thread work is eye candy! Best of all, you could win all the different components to create this quilt yourself by going to her blog and answering a simple question. You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain, so hop right over here!

    Your booth looks great, and I recognize many of the items on display as I’ve watched you develop them. I hope you have a great time!

    I’m sad I didn’t stop at your booth longer. My knees were killing me by the time I made it to your end of Market. Everything looked so beautiful!

    Your booth looks great, how fun to be able to participate in such an event! Looks like their weather is at least 2 weeks ahead of us. Don’t you just love irises?!

    Your booth looks great. Seeing the before and after…looks as though you provided your own background drapes for the quilts. How are the quilts hung? Mounted on a rod or pinned to the drapes? They are in perfect alignment. Thanks for your photos of the market.
