Which leads me into my little surprise I mentioned yesterday . . . I get to join Pat Sloan on American Patchwork and Quilting Podcast on Monday and talk all about Irish Chain Quilts!!! So exciting!!!!
The show will air live on Monday, June1st at 4pm eastern, 3 pm Central, 2 pm Mountain, or 1pm Pacific. For all of my International friends you will have to figure out the time ;) You can catch the show live right here, or download it later and listen ;)
And speaking of Irish Chain Quilts, there are a few quilts that I forgot to share that I used in my book signings. These are my Bitty Bits mini's!!!!
You might remember when I shared this little guy for March Madness Mini Week . . .
And ya, this one is my favorite. I mean, it has purple in it, of course it is my favorite!!!
I used these adorable little guys to show how easy it is to transform the Bitty Bits pattern from the book using the inverse of the solids layout, adding prints mixed with solids, or just using all solids. I think it really helped for people to see how versatile the design can be to fit their own personal favorites.
Each of these measure 20" x 20" and are going to make a cute little addition to all of my Irish Chain Quilts. And ya . . . you know this has got me thinking about making Mini's of all the quilts in Irish Chain Quilts!!!
And now, I have shared everything that I made for market . . . But I had a few surprises when I got there of other quilt sightings ;) The ladies at Riley Blake designs brought back the butterfly display from Quilt Con for their market booth. It was so fun to finally get to see that beautiful Butterfly Dress. And ya, that is my Butterfly Whirl quilt behind it that I designed for Quilt Con. (and am still working on a pattern for, so many things to do :)
And if you remember the Endless Summer quilt I made for Vanessa Christensen, it showed up in her booth as well. Doesn't it look so cute all rolled up in the basket ;)
And finally, one last share, that I was totally surprised was here. Remember those scraps of Hello Darling I showed a while back . . . well it was for this quilt!!! The lovely Barbara and Mary, of Me and my Sister Designs asked to to do the piecing for this stunning quilt!! It came back from the quilter just before Market, and was sent off to It's Sew Emma. So I was super surprised to see it ;) It was one of those secret sewing projects that I thought was going to be secret a little longer, but since it was hanging, I figure I can share ;) This quilt will be in Me and My Sister's newest book PreCut Primer for It's Sew Emma and I am so excited for this book!!!! I will share more about it when it gets closer to being released in August ;)
And I think that just about wraps it all up!!! Wow, International Spring Quilt Market, you were awesome!!!!! And I am looking forward to next spring when you will be in my neck of the woods. Salt Lake City, here I come ;)
I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!
