I know that you all have heard enough about Quilt Market by now from several people most likely. But a lingering detail of my trip arrived at my door yesterday. I left my pajamas in mine and Heather's hotel room and she sent them back to me. I don't even know why I had pajamas with me, considering we didn't sleep. Out of the kindness of her heart she couldn't send them back alone. She had to put something in with it. How cute are these little vintage buttons?! They're as cute as a...well a button. There they are sittin' on my jamas. And aren't those cute jamas?
Last spring when I was in New York, I was strolling through the Soho Anthropologie, and found that same print on plates. It was the exact same print. So funny. I love seeing prints pop up here and there. Oh and I also just got this invite in the mail yesterday! Same print! Weird, two things of the same print arrived in the mail yesterday. My friends will look at me so funny when I make a remark about their clothing or something in their house, and say "oh I have that print on a kitchen towel from a few years ago." You just store print data in your head after awhile. I am sure some of you do the same!
And speaking of, Amy Butler just posted a very informative letter to her fans on the Quilters Buzz about the process of creating a fabric collection by in part using vintage documentary prints of decades ago. It's a very valid and very effective way to create a beautiful overall collection. You should go read!
OH YEA!! And while you're there, today's Quilter's Buzz post is a little more visiting time with me and Heather. Lovin' that love! Thanks Gina!!
Stay in your pajamas all weekend!!! xoxox, Anna Maria
