Let's start with a photo, shall we?
On Thursday night of Quilt Market I was one of the first in line - thanks to my new friends - for the utterly crazy Sample Spree where quilting ladies left their dignity at the door and turned into lethal elbows to get their hands on their favorite fabrics. Actually, it was fun. A thrill of the hunt kind of thing. Absolutely everybody went running to the Moda tables, but I went straight to the Kokka (technically Seven Islands, Inc) table where I scored 3 different half meter sets - including the COVETED new line by Heather Ross called Far Far Away 2. Granted, I actually had to *pay* for this stuff - this wasn't some movie star swag-a-thon. The madness continued at Riley Blake, Lecien and Robert Kaufman. What am I going to do with all of this fabric? Oh, I'll think of something! Let me know if you have some suggestions.
By the way, I never did buy anything from Moda, but I bet I was the only one in the room who didn't.
Here's a close up of my Kokka goodies:
Okay, that's enough gushing about loot for one day. I promise the next post will be full of candid photos of textile rock stars. But first, I leave you with one of my absolute favorite goodies from the Seven Islands, Inc. booth. Enjoy!
