Quilt Market Houston - Inspiration Overload!!

Houston Quilt Market is a yearly whirlwind trip that brings everyone from all aspects of the quilting world together.  Fabric companies and their designers, book authors and their publishers, every cool and necessary gadget and their distributors gather under one roof and we all leave recharged (and a bit tired!)
Here are a few (I took a lot!) to give you a little preview of what inspired us.  We will have a market recap and show and tell of all of the great things we brought back with us and order to come in.  We will also let you know what trends we see for the coming year.  We are so excited and inspired and hope you will be too!!  [The above photo is from the Hoffman booth.  They are introducing Bali Pops in single tone packs.  The sample quilt was done with the blues package.]
Hoffman also is introducing Snaps and Crackers (their version of the 5" and 10" precuts).
We LOVED everything Sue Spargo had.  Her school house was eye candy!
More Sue Spargo and the ever popular hexagons.
Is this not an amazing quilt!!  I love it!  A bargello quilt out of solids in the Timeless Treasures booth.
Melody Miller has designer some awesome new retro-inspired fabrics.  She had samples out of her new designs in everything from chairs and pillows to  dresses, kitchen towels and of course, quilts.  My favorite booth!   Also new is more Hello Kitty fabric!!  Adorable apron and bag on on of the sales associates.
Glamping in the Moda Booth (what do you think I thought of THIS?  hee hee)

More photos to come.  We'll have a whole display done for Saturday, too!  With some cool show and tells and demos, too!
