Walking the 2200 or so booths at Quilt Market is an exercise in sensory overload. It is virtually impossible to do it all in one day, your head kind of gets to the point where you think it is going to explode, mostly in a good way. Even if you think you have walked every single aisle, there are things you will miss. For example, Denyse Schmidt. I had no idea that she was at market, which is probably a good thing, or I totally would have geeked out and gone into fan mode. I’m not sure there is anyone else in the industry that would happen with, and in fact, it has only ever really happened (the uncontrollable I-am-so-excited-that-I-just-ran-into-Jennifer-Garner-and-her family-in-Savannah-leaving-her-brother-in-law’s-wedding-and-there-is-no-one-else-in-sight-and-oh-my-what-am-I-wearing-and, well, yep, I-almost-just-said-“Hi Sydney [Bristow]”-and-my-heart-is-beating-so-fast-I-think-I’m-going-to-be-sick) once in my life. So, maybe it’s a good thing I didn’t see her
I thought I would quickly share a few of my very favorite things, in no particular order.
