This is what everyone needs in their sewing room for motivation!!
On Friday I was walking along and not really paying attention when this beast of a man walked by......as he turned the corner I realized it was the Quilt Dad himself....John Q Adams. Bummed that I missed him I posted my near-meeting with him and he said he would be looking for me!!! Sigh. So Sat morning he was definitely on my list and I was able to check him off!!
I was bummed to realize that I had missed getting his book signed. Looks amazing and I have one coming to me now so be looking for my review soon!
I had also met Amy Butler during set-up but no picture was taken due to our sloppish state! I made sure I rectified that situation!
Her new fabric line is gorgeous! Unfortunately her hubby David Butler aka Parson Grey wasn't able to be there but his side of the booth was beautiful too!Do you see that cute shirt turned into a dress? Below is info on the pattern! Love it!! And that's Amy's hand hoding it for me!! lol
I also got the chance to hang out with Alison Glass at her booth. Beautiful fabrics and patterns. This one is triangles and paper-pieced triangles. So pretty and the possibilities are endless!!
Angela Walters had a booth and new book out. I got my old book and my new book signed while I was there too!
And a couple other good pics from being out and about...

Not sure of the booth but love these 3-D quilts!
At the end of the day we had a special mission. Kim from my go-go-life had put out a top secret request for people to meet in the lobby to make a welcome home sign from her son returning from the Middle East in the Army.
We were given poster board and markets and a letter and we went to town
People were coming by and taking pictures and asking us what we were doing. It was an event on its own. We were able to take a video where we welcomes him home. Lots of tears were shared!
After we were done we hiked down to the local Vietnamese restaurant- Pho. I had never been to one before so I decided to be brave and try it out. Many people in our group had special food needs so this place catered to them all. Our waiter Travis awazing.

While we were waiting for our meal, Ebony and I ran next door to the candy shop. Grandpa Joe was a great help and he had an amazing collection.
Ebony and I have made some plans for meeting up in Indy and creating some chaos and I can't wait!
Well this about sums up my trip to Market. It was sooo much fun and I encourage everyone that can to go and experience it once in their life....fall is always in Houston and next Spring is in Minneapolis...I'm sure it won't be cold there!
The last giveaway is for another set of the Aurifil thread in all the weights and 2 more FQs from Tula Pink's new line coming out in the fall.
Comment with someone in the industry that you would give anything to meet!! Wednesday at noon is the deadline!!
Have a great weekend!!
