Houston Fall Market Pt. 2

Here's the second round of Market photos. The fabric companies have ginormous booths. I don't even know if you could call them booths. Anyway they have samples of the new fabric lines that will be coming out and they have quilts hanging that have been made of the new fabric. They draw quite a crowd naturally since fabric is the basis of the business. Here is the fabulous world of Moda.
Marcus on the left(I am in love with it), Minnick and Simpson in the center, and Barbara Brackman on the right.
The Bunny Hill fabric is adorable.
The center display is Brannock and Patek, Lilac Hill. Blackbird Designs on the right. (Hoping some of that comes my way.)
Kaye England has a new line called Bread and Butter. Love it. Check out the applique quilt in the corner.

Here's Holly Holderman of Lakehouse. Their booth was super cute. That is giant rick-rac around the edges of the tables. So you can see there are some really great fabric lines on the horizon. Alot of it will hit shops around Jan. or Feb.

The second day of Market was of course Halloween. There were lots of people in costume.

This is Jan Patek aka Raggedy Ann.

This is Pat Sloan with a Halloween headpiece that makes for an interesting photo. Pat was demonstrating her new Edge ruler. Let me tell you guys this is truly a must have! These rulers have one side that is a diamond carbide edge. Every time you cut with your rotary cutter, the blade is sharpened. Very awesome! I don't have to tell you guys that blades are expensive and lose their edge faster than I like. If you see these in your LQS be sure to check them out.

The next post will be of the quilts on exhibit.
