sorry to have taken so long to share my adventures at Quilt Market in Pittsburgh. I think writing the blog post really meant it was over for me and it was such a fantastic experience I did not want to admit it was over.
It felt a bit like Thelma & Lousie...Renee & I escaping from the daily grind...hoping in a car and hitting the road to Pittsburgh! We got a late start and ended up pulling in around 2am....our gracious host the Divine Lady M was there to greet us with a smile on her face and we stayed up chatting until almost 3am!
I was so excited to get to market the next morning I was up before 7am! We headed over the market and over to the Moda booth for my first ever Tweet Up! Arranged by the amazingly talented April Cornell
It was too cool to meet all of these people I had only met online before...I even offered to go to India if April needed help with her new endeavors!

While at Westminster we also got the meet Project Runway winner and fabric Desinger Jay McCarroll! we even got a sneak peek of his new collection coming out this summer!
From there we headed to Patty Young's booth - the reason for coming to market!
Patty and I have been online friends for 3+ years so when I found out that Market was being held a short drive away I knew I had to come down to meet her. It was so fun to finally see her in person and meet her fabulous husband Jon. Pattys newest desings are gorgeous - LOVE the Mezzanine collection! I had actually placed my order for it BEFORE market and was excited to see it in person.
