Market Report #3

 Welcome to my booth!
This year I had help decorating my booth.  I am not good with vignettes, but my friend Machelle of Cherry Tree Cottage is.  We decorated half of the booth girly and the other half boyishly because the new book is Simply Charming Kids that has a boy and a girl quilt made up of each pattern.  And because I am lame sometimes, I messed up my website and can’t bear to struggle through fixing it yet.  So the book is not available to buy on my website yet.  Guess you’ll have to ask for it at your local quilt store.
Another friend, April of April M Designs made some stuffed toys for me.  A boy one:
and a girl one:
A couple people asked me what pattern was used.  It was a McCall’s pattern #5826, Creature Dolls.
So here’s the girly side of the booth.

and the boyish side of the booth.

I had planned to get pictures of other booths, but I was busy enough at my own booth not to get other pictures.  I even missed getting to see what’s his face from Home Makeover.  I’m okay with that.  I was glad to be busy talking to people.  It’s funny how energizing and exhausting Market is.  I love it!
Thanks for coming along for my tour!

    Your booth looks great! Very creative. I like how you divided it in half. I have two boys and sometimes it is challenging to find cute quilts patterns and fabrics for them.

    Ha ha…I am glad I posted my latest post BEFORE I read this. I like the girl doll better than the boy doll. Probably because it has clothes and hair. But I like the boy half of the room better.
    I like your booth!
