Let's Say Thanks to Our Soldiers!

Please go to this web site,  you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq. You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to a member of the armed services.
How AMAZING would it be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!!
It is FREE and it only takes a few seconds.

This is the first post from Market that I will be posting on my blog!  Mom and I got so many great ideas and can't wait to share everything we saw!  This first post, I will be showing my three favorite designers in the whole world!  I hoard all of their fabrics because I just love to look at them for inspiration! (I will be going in alphabetical order just to be fair!)

First up, The Amazing Amy Butler! My mom and I had the pleasure to meet Amy Butler at Quilt Market and she was the sweetest person ever!  It's so great meeting your fabric idols and they end up being so down to earth!! It makes buying all of her products even more worth it!  Thank you Amy for being so awesome and talking with my mom and I; it was a pleasure meeting you again!  Her booth won 1st place this year and below are photos so you can see why!  Her new fabric line is called Soul Blossoms and is amazing!
 Me, Amy and my Mom!

Next up, the Super Sweet Anna Maria Horner!  Anna was so cute and I loved talking with her!  She took the time to talk with my mom and I and her mom was also there too!  It was so inspiring seeing all the mother/daughter duos at Market! Anna was nice enough to sign my book that I've had of hers called Seams to me!  If you haven't seen that book...get's awesome!  Her new fabric line is called Innocent Crush and it's gorgeous!

Last but certainly not least, Miss Tula Pink!  This was Tula's first booth and it was awesome!  This is her 7th fabric lined and it's called Parisville!  I love the colorways in this line and LOVED the new quilt patterns!  Her mom was also there and it was a blast talking with them!  My mom and I have been to her mom's shop in Missouri called The Quilt Shoppe and she remembered us!  How fun is that?  Our bags we were carrying were made from Tula's previous fabric lines and she noticed right away!! I LOVED talking with her and she even said she wanted to take me home with her!! OK, yes please....I will gladly live in your studio as long as I can bring my husband and three cats :)!! Thanks Tula for being so RAD!
