To Market, to Market

Hi from Kansas City!
I'm at Quilt Market this weekend, promoting my upcoming book in Martingale's booth.
If this quilting thing doesn't work out, maybe I could be another Vanna?
Karen and Mary from Martingale--they're just the best to work with!
There it is!  My book, my book!
Who is this person with my name and why are all these people lined up to see her?
After the book signing it was time to wander the aisles...
Who knew these guys were quilters?
Some of my favourite designers... JoAnn Mulally,
Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings,
and Jan Patek.
To give you an idea of the size of this place,
here I am looking one direction from the center point,
And looking in the other direction.
32 aisles with about 34 booths on both sides!
No wonder my feet hurt.
I loved the quilts in this booth.
Look at the size of these blocks--and all hand stitched!
Karen Styles of Somerset Designs in Australia, made this stunning quilt.
It took my breath away.

It's been a long day... more to come!
