Fall Quilt Market 2013 Wrap-Up

Happy Friday all!

We think we’ve finally recovered from Quilt Market in Houston this past weekend. The trip was a blast – it’s always so inspiring to see and feel all of the creativity buzzing in the convention center, and seeing old friends/making new friends is our favorite! To all those who visited our booth – THANK YOU!

For those who weren’t at the show, we thought we’d give you a (not so) little booth tour. Take a look!
