I'm back from Quilt Market and I had a wonderful time! It was a smaller turnout than usual, but after 3 years of there being no Market, I think everyone was unsure what to expect. What is Quilt Market?
Since 1979, the show has been the trade show for the quilting and textile industries.
Market is a wholesale trade show, open only to credentialed attendees and those in the business. Here, you’ll be able to visit more than 1,000 booths to see all kinds of products both new and familiar ranging from fabrics, book, and patterns to sewing machines, notions, and supplies. You can also learn in dozens of Take & Teach classes and Business Seminars, and take that knowledge or class skills back home to your shop or business!

Bottom Right: Kitty Loves Candy from Poppie Cotton. Poppie Cotton is one of my favorites! This upcoming collection will be a must-have for me. Look at those cats!
Top Left: Another favorite - mice! Jill Howarth's Twas collection is just darling. As soon as I saw the mice, I got an idea for a quilt pattern. Now I need to make it happen.

I also found these really neat Half Square Triangle Quilt Block Design Deck cards.
This looks like tons of fun!
Since I drove to Texas, we found some great stops along the way.
The Peach Barn in Porter, Oklahoma was a great place to grab a sandwich for lunch. They also had a bakery and a little shop as well.
The Farmhouse Cafe and Bakery was another yummy stop. They have the best cornbread. Who knew you could put broccoli in cornbread?
All together, it was a great trip and I can't wait for the next convention.
