Quilt Market!!!!


I'm back home from Quilt Market - a remarkable experience! That's Peggy there on the left and I'm on the right (looking very tired). And you probably know who that is in the middle - yes, the infamous Alex Anderson, who taught me to quilt, though she doesn't know it!

I learned to quilt by watching Alex's show, Simply Quilts, on HGTV as a stay-at-home mom. And now she and Ricky Tims do a great job of continuing their mission of sharing quilting with the world through The Quilt Show.

Alex happened across our demo of the Quick and Easy Hexie technique on Friday at Market. She LOVED the way we make hexies! She lingered for quite some time and told the shop owners watching our demo how wonderful our method would be to share at their shops. She turned to the AQS staff at the booth and told them, "This is FANTASTIC!"

Alex invited us to be on The Quilt Show, too! That will happen very soon! What fun we had - so excited to finally share this fun, fast, and easy technique with the quilt world!
