Quilt Market Countdown…

In less than a week, we’ll be flying to Houston.


This is Charlotte.  While her Grandma would love to have her in Houston for the week, she’ll only be there in pictures.  More about Miss Charlotte in a few weeks.

Before next Thursday, there are still a dozen quilts to bind.  Catalogs to organize, pack and ship.  Sell Sheets to prepare.  More boxes to pack and ship.  And probably more quilts to bind – they’re coming in every day so I’ve lost count.  Ten thousand steps?  Most everyone is getting the little writst-buzz by noon.

Schedules are being filled with appointments and calendars are being updated.

Schoolhouse?  Check!

(Maybe I can pretend I forgot.)

We’re especially excited about the Schoolhouse titled Love Historic Blocks & Reproductions by Betsy Chutchian and Carol Staehle.

While you know that Betsy is a Moda Designer, did you know that she and Carole are original Divas – as in the 19th Century Patchwork Divas!  History Repeated is one of their books.  This is the new one coming November 1st.


Treasury of Quilts.  (Rumor has it that I may have an autographed copy to give away after Market.)

By the way, speaking of Moda Designers… have you seen the Moda Designer page recently?  It’s been updated with new pictures and it’s beautiful!  Some of the pictures are truly special, they capture the designer’s personality perfectly.

That’s it for me for today.  I’ve got some Cakes to finish – more about those soon too.

Happy Friday!

  1. ………..drooling……………… if the INSIDE of that book is as beautiful as the cover ………. oh, my ………………..

  2. I’m thinking I might have to give that book to me. I could wrap it up and pretend someone bought it for me and left it under the tree. I could carefully not look at it until after Christmas Day. Maybe I could wait. It could happen. I have shown self control before.

  3. Good luck and I hope you are able to work faster than you ever imagined so you can have it all done on time!! Looking forward to Market pics!! I always enjoy them! Hugs, H in Healdsburg

  4. How about putting on an apron and going as Betty Crocker??!! Good luck with all you need to get done, Carrie!! Thanks for keeping us in the loop!! ~Pris & Gibbs from Idaho

  5. Drooling over the new book – and just in time for Christmas! I tried checking out the new designer page using my smartphone, but all the biopics took me to a Pinterest sign-up/sign-in page. I don’t do social media, so is there another way?
