Before too much time gets away from me, I thought I’d share a bit from my 2019 Fall Quilt Market in Houston experience. (And do a giveaway!)
By taking a booth break this past spring, I found myself feeling refreshed and able to enjoy creating an environment to show off the things I’ve been thinking about and working on. Stepping back and looking at what you’ve done can be good. It makes me excited for the projects I most enjoyed and eager to get going on the next things. It may be a booth for me, but you could absolutely gather up some of your own recent projects, either physically or digitally, and reflect a bit on what you’ve been making. I’ll bet it gives you a little spark for whatever might come next.
Back to the booth, here’s what’s in there.
- Eads Mini blocks in Jetty, Kona Lemon Ice + scraps from my Eads Jetty + CF quilt (see #2)
- Eads Jetty + CF quilt (more details to come)

Phew, so much stuff! I feel like I rarely share the booth details and projects all together like this. What do you think? Is it helpful to have a project hub? I’m hoping it’s an easy way to take it all in.
These Eads mini blocks have been something I’ve wanted to do FOREVER, which is to take leftovers from a big Eads project and work them into a mini version. This time, I’m using little scraps from the bigger project and letting 3 lemon yellow and light fabrics (both Jetty and Kona) take the lead. It’s totally a weekend project, and I’m excited to carve out more time to let it grow.
There we have it. Thanks again to anyone who stopped by in person or followed along digitally!
Now a giveaway. ++ Leave a comment below about any project you’re excited about between now and Saturday, November 16 at 10am EST. I’ll randomly select a winner to receive a pack of the featured patterns in my booth as well as a mini charm pack of my newest fabric collection. Giveaway has ended. Thanks so much for everyone who participated!
