Christmas Is In My Heart - Blog Hop!

Today starts Day 3 of the Christmas is in My Heart Blog Hop.  Christmas has lots of memories of spending time with my family decorating the tree and Hanging the stockings.  The stocking were the best due to we got them right away Christmas morning, before dad got up.  

I would like to show you one of our patterns that combines lovely flowers arrangement in a Christmas stocking.  Christmas Stocking Bouquet by Diana and Tina Dillard, is an easy raw edge applique pattern that would make a great gift or to add it to you holiday decor.  

In the creating of this pattern we made two version in different color schemes.  Diana, made hers in a more traditional color scheme. She mostly used Kansas Troubles (Clara's Garden) for this project.
Holiday Magic by Henry Glass Fabrics
In my version, I played around with a lot of Fabric collections in EQ7, before deciding happily with Holiday Magic by Henry Glass Fabrics. These fabrics gave the stocking a modern feel.

It is amazing how differant Holiday collections can change a pattern.  Here are some more Christmas Fabric Collection variations for this pattern:

Moda Winterberry collection by Kate and Birdie, combines icy mint, berry red and soft warm greys.

Road trip to Houston!

Wednesday started a two day road trip to Houston, Texas for me and my husband.  The car was packed full of quilts, display items, and patterns for the Quilt Market. That morning we left at 5am est time to start our first day of our adventure.  We traveled through Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama.  Traffic was easy until we hit Atlanta, but the traffic was not as bad as it was normally is the DC area.  Atlanta has some cool, tall buildings. It was 8pm before we stopped for the night in Mobile, Alabama. 

The next day we got up early again to hit the road, we want to get into Houston between 12pm and 2pm CST time.  This leg of the trip we traveled through Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas.  We arrived at the convention center little after 1:30pm, which was great because the rest of the group we are working with had just arrived also.  
We started in right way starting to set up the booth areas.  Laying floors and hanging curtains, placing table clothes.  Then we separated to our little sections and set up our areas.  I signed up for 6ft section (now wishing I had a bigger section).  I was put in the middle of 2 other designers that had smaller sections. Luckily, we did a dry run days before at home, so I picked up more supplies for display options.  The dry run helped and made it much easier to set up our area.  

The area came out beautiful and amazing, i think we will have to see what the response is when the show opens tomorrow.  
Today, we went back to the Convention Center to help with more setting up and we will see what else happens.

If you are the International Quilt Market this weekend please stop by our booth #1445, we would love to see you.
