It's Tuesday again?

Well I guess it is...where did my time go? Well I have been frantically working on quilts to take to Quilt Market...yep, if I didn't mention this before...I'm going to Quilt Market this October. I am super excited. I am going to meet the coolest people in quilting and spend time with Rachel {p.s. i quilt} and Julie {jaybird} . I am making a bunch of projects big and small. I can't wait to see what market is like and maybe even go to sample spree!!! Once market is over I will have tons of pics and pictures of my quilts and such. In the mean time, here are 2 quilts I just got back from my local quilter guy..... My Figgy Four Patch on Modabakeshop.

Done with an overall snowflake design that I totally ♥ .
My husband is Ga-Ga over this quilt because it is more manly.

This quilt top was pieced several years ago WAY before jelly rolls existed and I cut my own 2.5 inch strips from my 30' scraps. I used a pattern from Nancy Smith and Lynda Milligan of Possibilities.

It's going to be a couch quilt or bed topper, more utility style.
As it turns out my posts may be sporadic until after/during Quilt Market. Hang in there. I hope to have some exciting news and giveaways coming.....

Congratulations! Are you going to have a booth or are you spectating? You'll have a blast... I went years ago when we lived there and loved it (and I was only into the stitcheries at the time)! And there are lots of good eateries & quilt shops in Houston, too!

I considered going to Houston but not to market since I'm not into that part and can't get in, perhaps the show instead, if I do go...right now it's iffy. I sure did have a wonderful time when I was there five years ago.
