Where Did May Go?

I've been to and back from Quilt Market in Salt Lake City for a little while now. It seems as though May just got away from me. I came back to being thrown into the crunch of things. The week after the show is always a little crazy. Add family stuff on top of that! Ok, the kids need to eat. Aw, yes they do!

Henry Glass booth. Early morning before the show started. I then visited with Barb Jones of QuiltSoup. I'll try to get her pic loaded up here but right now it is not happening!

We're proud of this girl. Jill Finley of Jillily Studio won for her awesome booth. Wanna see it? Look below and she was handing out mini-cones of sherbet.

Cute! And look how she's got fabric in the loaf pans.

Buggy Barn and Jacquelynne Steves in the middle.

Lizzie B, the Beth half of the Lizzie B dynamic duo.

I adore this sign in her booth.

Quilt Market is nothing without visiting the Aurifil booth. See that display on the right? If it weren't for the fact that I was going home on an airplane, the thread may not have made it home. Don't tell Alex. [far left or Dario with his back to us in the gray suit.]

Hello, Miss Jodie! Always smiling and always working hard.

Monica [the Happy Zombie in blogland] was so happy to show me her fun new fabric line for Lecien. Congrats.

Patty Young was around for our chat too.

Oh, don't you adore these hats? They're actually pincushions from a Quilted Fish pattern and Amanda, you rock!

BariJ had a lovely booth too.

Brigitte of Zen Chic, you had an amazing booth. I'm so proud. I hope that you had a great flight back to Germany!

Phew, that's it for now. xo, L

Aurifil Designer of the Month - May 2011

Kaye England is the Aurifil Designer of the Month for May. I met Kaye when we were both invited to the American Patchwork and Quilting Creative Inner Circle Designer Retreat. She's a hoot. So talented, lively and fun!

You have to check out Pat Sloan's radio interview with Kaye. You can find it here. Download it to your computer, iPad, mp3 or other player.

Remember to post your finished project on the Aurifil Flickr Folder. Linda from NY made my pillow project and won last month!! 

Kaye designed a lovely project for the folks at Aurifil and you can download that here.

Everyone in the industry is off to Salt Lake City this week for Quilt Market. It's exciting and inspiring. I can't wait. If you are going, I hope to see you there. I am trying to be at the Aurifil Designer of the Month Schoolhouse presented by Pat Sloan. Drop by and say hi!
