Within the last month there are/have been two huge events for Quilters here in the Midwest! We at Toadally Quilted embarked on one of our shortest trips for all things quilting by heading to Kansas City, MO for Spring Quilt Market. I got to see 4 of my quilts displayed in the Batik Textiles booth. They are a great bunch to work with, and a few of my quilts were asked to venture around for a bit before coming home which makes us pretty happy!
We spend 4 days of quilt overload and finding just about anything you could ever want and more. Saw a big trend in floral fabrics. The hard part was not taking everything home, lucky for us we drove so I was able to shop a bit more :D
We had a bit of time to look at the Quilts a World of Beauty presented by IQA, which were all amazing but as I turned the corner stopped dead in tracks, I was shocked and ecstatic to find a quilt by Sophie Standing!!!!! I have to say I was introduced to her work several years ago and fell in love!!!! This was the first time I was able to see her work in person given that she lives in Kenya. She does these amazing quilts/artwork from her hand drawn sketches. They are unbelievable, if I could afford one i would have one on the wall right now! You can find her work at Sophiestandingart.com
The next adventure I actually started today, it's the Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival 2019 managed by 18 guilds in the Kansas City metropolitan and outlying areas.
For info on this show check out kcrqf.com More to coming on this show as I depart at the wee hours of the morning to get there for an 8am class!
As always, Happy Quilting.
P.S. We have 2 new quilt patterns on their way to the online store!!! and a long awaited quilt pattern will be coming next week! HINT: It makes a quiet hum as it flies around. So check back often, and check us out on FB and Instagram :)
