More Market Fun

Michael Miller's booth at Market was completely Gnome themed. Little hedges, a little tear drop trailer (in red polka dots!!!!!) and a roaming gnome. It was a very cute theme, and a new fabric line to support the idea. The roaming gnome fabric was adorable and had some great pieces to blend with it. Did we order it? Of course!
For their tenth anniversary, Michael Miller has brought back some old favorites and reprinted. Here are a couple of the ones we ordered. How to get a husband was one of fastest selling fabrics we have ever had in the store.

If She Sews She Knows was another record setting fabric we carried. It was the inspiration for my blog. I always thought this fabric said it all and now it's back! We should have these great fabrics in the store any day.

There's this booth at market that always has these incredible buttons. I love to look at them, they are so purty. I'll take one of each, please!
We go to quilt market to find all of the newest things, search the new trends and buy all kinds of goodies to stock the store. But right there through a wide open doorway is the biggest quilt show, already hung in preperation for the following week's Quilt Festival. The ribbon's haven't been awarded yet, that doesn't happen until the Tuesday's winner's circle. But I always try to sneak in a little time to go walk the show. This is a quilt that struck my interest. Of course the picture doesn't even begin to do it justice, but in person, it was one of the most interesting quilts. I was really drawn to the layers.

Is that a real Teardrop with a fabric slip-cover? How neat. Market must be like a big fairy tale. I am almost jealous. :-)
