If I had asked you to choose FOUR quilts from my new book MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders to be featured in the Kansas City Star booth at Spring Quilt Market in Pittsburgh PA in just a few weeks – which four would you choose?
Can you guess which ones that I chose?
((Pardon my funny photo with the graphics blocking out the mailing addresses – it’s not like you couldn’t look them up online if you wanted to, but we don’t want to make it too easy for folks to stalk my front door, do we?? Okay, that is another funny topic all together, but we can get to that another time!))
Kansas City Star asked for the four most dynamic quilts – quilts that could pull people into the booth from far away – they needed to be REAL attention grabbers, we are not playing subtle here!
There is a lot of competition to get folks IN the booth at Quilt Market, it’s visual overload, and we want these quilts to stand out and be noticed, not just blend in ---
So can you guess?
It was not easy to choose, I love them all for different reasons, but when they said eye-poppers – this is what spoke to me!
You can view ALL the quilts found in More Adventures with Leaders & Enders in my preview post HERE.
All taped up, labeled and ready to roll!
The Hubster is playing CEO today ---
CARRYING. EVERYTHING. OUT!!
Safe journey, bin-o-quilts! Have a great time in Pittsburgh!
If you are going to Market, would you please take some photos of the quilt display in the Kansas City Star booth? I’d love to see what I missed! Please email them to me ---pretty please?
The quilt bags are all packed for Mackinac Island tomorrow. My suitcase is another story –It’s too cold to want to wear dresses there for dressy dinners. ((Yes, you MUST dress for dinner after 5pm at the Grand Hotel -- no jeans, and men must be in button down shirts with ties and sport coats!)) I’m opting for ONE pair of dressy black slacks for dinner and will pair it with different sweaters and tops and it should be good enough because this is an 11 day trip and I am limited to one carry on for clothes. And did I mention it’s COLD there? Like icy-frozen cold? Like we can’t get across on the ferry so they have to fly us from Pellson to the island? Warm wear takes more space.
Maybe I’ll just need to shop once I get there? :c)
Don’t forget to come back tomorrow morning for my block reveal and my turn on the blog hop for Quiltmaker Magazine’s 100 blocks vol 9!!
