Quilt Market in Pittsburgh Take 2 June 08 2014, 0 Comments

Our first Quilt Market post was all about our booth, but we thought you might like to see and hear about more than that! I have finally gone through the rest of our Quilt Market photos and compiled them into two posts. So here is the first post full of amazing booths, awesome people and photos from around Pittsburgh!

The Dear Stella booth - always adorable! And full of pillows (so tempting during Market)

We found this neat mural painted on a building pretty close to the Convention Center of a futuristic city.

Jen Fox Studios' booth - Jen was right around the corner from us! She has a new line, Nomad, for P&B Textiles. She is a complete sweetheart and we went out for dinner and drinks and got to know her a little bit!

Carolyn Friedlander's booth - always one of my favorites! Her photo wall and quilt ladders were just begging to come home with me! She used three antique ironing boards put together for her table. Too cute!

The Michael Miller booth - these crazy kids always go big for their booth. This year was no exception; they put a life-size garden in the middle of their booth, complete with a working fountain. (I failed to get a decent photo, but here is one)
