Making Friends at Quilt Market

Smiley Scrap seems to find her way into my travel bag from time to time. She managed to make it all the way to Houston for Fall International Quilt Market.

At the Robert Kaufman booth, she found some inspiration in the Oh, the Places You'll Go! book and fabric line.
 


So, Smiley set out to make some new friends. These ladies from The Quilting Warehouse in Sulphur, Louisiana had some really cute tag holders. Smiley loves birds!


Smiley even found some hummingbirds to hang out with in the Alexander Henry booth. I'm not sure how much she liked being in a cage!
 

And Smiley likes to find quilting celebrities. Here's Smiley with Deb Tucker of Studio 180 Design!


Mostly Smiley seemed to be seeking out some soft spots. Like here at the Bellagio Enterprises booth. She almost felt like the Princess and the Pea in this huge stack of pillows! 
 

Speaking of softies. This branch full of so-soft birds in the Shannon Fabrics booth seemed a good place to set a spell. I think Smiley may have tweeted this. 
 

Smiley found another nice resting place in the Swirly Girls Booth. I think she really likes their new fabric line Poppy Love from Michael Miller Fabrics.
 

Smiley liked the Swirly Girls so much, she went back to their hotel room for a sleepover one night.


She didn't say much about her sleepover adventures, but I noticed a definite change in her choices the next day. Hmm.

 

No matter what, it's always good to get back home to your very own scrap bin!


Happy Stitching!
