Quilt Market 2017 Recap - Favorite Finds

I love the quilting industry! The main reason being the people. There are so many talented, sweet, funny and creative people and I love interacting with them and seeing their creations every 6 months at Quilt Market. Here are some of my favorite booths, creative endeavors and people from around the tradeshow!
