Last Day of Market, Saturday

Saturday brought some mixed feelings. I had lots more people I wanted to meet but it was also the end of our trip. Market went one more day, and it would have been fun to stay and help take the booth down, but I was determined to make the best of the day.

There was a young woman always running around working hard for the Moda folks and her name is Holly. She does some designing too.

I was really excited to meet Lizzy House too. Isn't her booth cute??

Her booth happened to be across from Jaybird's booth. Oh look there's Julie and Candi.
I found a local pattern designer, Maggs and Me with some super cute patterns too.

I got a Little Bunny Foo Foo pattern while on the shop hop. Too cute!

I was super excited to meet Tula Pink, and her mom just happened to be there too! Her booth won second place for best booth. Her blog has photos. Her quilts were show stopping and I am in serious love with her new line Prince Charming!!

I saw this little guy just hanging out at the batting booth. What's up with that? He reminded me of our peacock, Blu.

I told you I would show you the other quilt I made with Pauline for Moda didn't I? Here it is:

I did the pinwheels and the sashing and Pauline did the applique and the borders. Sweet isn't it?

Another celeb is Gail Pan, a wonderful Aussie designer too.

Kokka and Seven Islands had an amazing booth. Just look at all that yummy Heather Ross fabric!

A new designer, Aneela Hoey had her new line Little Apples there and was giving out temporary tattoos of the little girl.

My favorite celebs were the Annes.

That night there was a Blogger Meet Up and you will never guess who I got to meet IRL. Amy Ellis and Jacquie Gering. Both are great inspirations!! It was fun to meet Jacquie after following her for so long. We really hit it off (and we are the same age!!)

Before I knew it it was time to leave to get ready to head for home. Our flight left at 7am on Sunday. I had a GREAT time and loved meeting everyone and seeing all the new eye candy. I hope to catch up with everyone again in the near future too.

As Pauline and I left, Anne, Barb and Mary sent us off with a wave!

I really hope you have enjoyed my adventures at market as much as I did. I know it is kind of the condensed version and if you want to see all the pics you can go to my flickr account and see them all!! ~XOP~
