Market Mash-Up

The weekend just gone was a hot-bed of market activity. I think I've finally recovered enough to talk about it!

First up I made a quick visit to AQM on Saturday to see all the new fabrics coming out in the next few months. I only had an hour to whip around the room, but I think I did a pretty good job.

I have some awesome new goodies instore. From Moda we have Lario Layer Cakes, Ticklish Mini Charms, and a Chateau Rouge Fat 1/8 bundle from French General.

Then I joined the mayhem at the Riley Blake booth, where it was a bit of bun fight to get hands on the lovely Chevron fabrics that are the flavour of the month. I've already sold a bit, so all I've got left are one Rolie Polie, one Stacker, and one FQB. First in, best dressed!

Then on Sunday I headed to Caulfield Racecourse at early-o'clock to set up for Mathilda's and Boutique Markets. What a crazy day! The crowds were non-stop and my fabric just flew off the table. Vintage Modern and Marmalade seemed to be the flavour of the day and by then end of it I was looking forward to a cuppa and a bit of a rest.

But all in all a succesfull weekend. It's always great to meet lots of new people, and even encourage newbies to take the first steps into quilting. Just one more market for the year!
