After a solid night's sleep, Shaerie and I got up to hit Quilt Market for a second day. I'm not gonna lie, that big martini from the night before helped me sleep solidly! Day two for us focused on a few key meetings with Echino, Westminster, and Kaufman. Here we picked up oodles of amazing fabrics, including some gorgeous new prints from Anna Maria Horner, understated Denyse Schmidt prints, insanity from Tula Pink, sweetness from Heather Ross, fun blocked prints from Melody Miller, the new Cameo line from Amy Butler (above) and more.

Heather Ross cuteness!
Japanese fabric cuteness overload!
Two super cute kid's sewing patterns we got for the shop!
Unexpectedly, my favorites of the show were from Anna Maria Horner. I simply CANNOT wait to make something with all of these fabrics!
Tula Pink's crazy mind put to fabric.

New embroidery kits and bunny sewing pattern from Penguin and Fish!
After all that quilt market goodness, Shaerie and I decided to rest our fabric overloaded brains and go see Dark Shadows! It was a great break for our weary minds!
Monday We didn't leave Kansas City until around 6pm, so we decided to hit a local landmark and we headed off to Independence, MO to get a tour of the Vaile Mansion, a Victorian mansion that is nearly completely restored. It was beautiful. A walk around the square of Independence was in order after that, where we had lunch and hit a few local shops. Then back to LA we flew!

It was an amazing trip and I look forward to seeing everyone again in the fall at the Houston show!
