Quilt Market 2017

Good Morning, Quilters!

Llamas are IN!  (Foxes and hedgehogs…on their way out?)

International Quilt Market is a trade show hosted by Quilts, Inc.  twice a year.  Vendors from all over the world show their wares to quilt stores.

I attended the event to market my book…

I presented a short book chat to store owners, did a few book signings and was able to demonstrate in the BERNINA booth–Thanks, BERNINA!!!

  1. Do you have a second book published and a second Craftsy class? I love your work. Thank you for sharing with us. Cam

    • I have two Craftsy videos published and one book published with another one scheduled for release in 2018.

  2. I finally picked up your book. I love it! I like the flat spiral format as well. I also recently read “Llama, Llama, Red Pajama” to my granddaughter numerous times. Great book & I can see why they would replace hedgehogs & fox.

  3. You are one busy lady! Quilt Market, blog, AQS column, books, videos, classes! And you so generously share it all with us! Thanks, Lori.

  4. Lori! So excited for you…couldn’t wait for your posts on Quilt Market…looks so much fun. Would be a dream to be there. I love the Llama’s but still in love with the hedgehogs too and just recently saw a cute manatee…was in FL long enough to fall in love with them too. Thanks for letting us ride along on you shirt tales on your quilty adventure! :).

  5. Gee, what a lift to make a great day!! Thrilled with you having great experience at the Market. 1. LOVe the heart of flowers.. 3D flowers no less ! 2. Love the quilt pattern hanging in background from Bear Patch Quilting. 3. Love the great big poster of the front cover of your book. 4. Love llamas and alpacas. However my favorite has always been giraffes. On the lookout for patterns of them. Can you imagine FMQ the spots on a giraffe? LOL You really show us a happy smile with your friends! Q: Is the Market always held in ST Louis? ( center of USA) Sharing your report has inspired a lot of love for me today!! Thank you.
