Behind the Scenes

I am always working on things I can't share with you but since January bit by bit some of  those things are coming to light.This is one of those things that I have been working on behind the scenes. Above is a quilt called The Legacy Sampler. This quilt and everything that goes along with it has been in the making since last Spring Market in Salt Lake City. There are 16 of us designers involved. We each designed a block for the quilt and sewed it. The quilt was then assembled by a couple of the designers and it was then quilted and photographed by sponsors. It is made from Jo Morton fabric by Andover. They are also one of our sponsors.
 We will be having a "booth hop" at Market and this quilt plays a huge part in it. Market attendees will receive a passport in their buyers guide. Stop by each of the designers booths and get a stamp on your passport. Drop the passport in the collection box in the Andover booth. At the end of Market there will be drawings for prizes. Each designer is donating patterns, books and gadgets for prizes. The big prize is the quilt! One lucky shop owner will win the quilt we made. Also, each shop with a finished passport will receive a free download of the pattern to be used for a BOM or kits in their shop. How cool is that?
We even have a website that lists each of the designers and their sites. You can check it out here- kansascitymarch.com
Happy Quilting, Dawn
