Last week was spring quilt market
and because it was here in Salt Lake...
I decided to do the very first Bee in my Bonnet booth:)
We loaded up some of the furniture from my cottage
and headed to the Salt Palace to start setting up:)
Salt Lake is about 25 miles from where I live.
As I started to decorate the booth...
I brought in more and even more things
from my cottage to give my booth the real
Bee in my Bonnet treatment:)
I brought all of the quilts that are in all 3 of my books...
Kassidy and I made the bunting to hang across the top of the booth...
I think I reached my goal of
covering every inch of the curtained walls with quilts:)
This was my home away from home for the week.
I had so much fun!
I had my quilty peeps Judy, Beth, Shanna and Rosanna to help me.
I signed books every day and
I visited with so many wonderful quilt shop owners...
and got to introduce a few new
Bee in my Bonnet products!
One of which is my brand new line of
rotary cutting mats!
I'm so excited:)
They come in my happy colors and
are very nice quality...
and are of course self healing.
They come in 3 sizes;
24" x 36"
18" x 24"
12" x 18"
They are double sided so there are 6 colors total.
Here is the other side:)
The mats will be ready to ship next month.
I also have a new line of magnets for fun quilty gifts!
And my "Cute Little Buttons"
are just about ready to ship to quilt shops!
I'm also excited to announce that coming this December is
My first fabric collection (Sew Cherry) is back by popular demand:)
I have added a few more prints as well as a fat quarter panel.
The gingham will come in all 6 color ways:)
Here is a sneak peek of the quilt we will be doing for the sew along...
it's called Sweetie Pie and yes...
there will be a new set of Sew Simple Shapes called Fruit Salad:)
I'm super excited about all of these!
Thank you so much to all of you who came
to visit me in my little booth and
also to those who came to my schoolhouse...
you were so sweet to me and it was so fun to meet all of you!!
