Quilt Market Spring 2011: Vol. 5 and a Giveaway!!

So today's post will be the last of the Quilt Market posts for Spring 2011, but no worries there is a giveaway (actually two) at the end! I will not be writing a personal experience post this time around as there is just too much to say and I don't really feel like I can put it out there right now. No worries though, I had a good time and got to talk to lots of people and get some business-y stuff done so it's all good! Without further adieu, it's Moda time!


Did you see that Katy, Heather, Aneela and I made the front page of the Moda website?! Click on the picture for a better look - we're in the second picture from top smooching on Aneela's upcoming line Little Apples. Good times all round I say! I do have all the photos we took in Moda's photo booth (three strips worth!) but I don't have a scanner, however you can view all the pictures over here on Heather's Flickr.


Oh look, it's Sandy Klop of American Jane fame! Sandy is really one of the sweetest ladies ever and Doe is just silly in love with her! I'm in love with her too of course because she really is one of the nicest people and she actually remembered us from last year.



Both of the above photos are from the Fig Tree & Co. booth; the booth was absolutely gorgeous again this year and I am really loving the stamp-like mini quilts! I didn't really get a chance to talk with Joanna this year (although I think we may have said hi at the Moda party) but Eric and I talked hockey again just like last year! San Jose went down just like I told him they would (ya, that's right, take that Eric!) and Vancouver is in the playoffs - woot!



The Oliver + S booth! Liesl debuted her third line, Cape Ann, which will be available in the Fall. I just love the little dresses and the small diamond dot (that's what I'm calling it anyway) especially! Cute cute cute! Unfortunately the above pictures are the only ones that survived on my camera - I know for sure that I took pictures of the booth Aneela was sharing with French General, Cabbage and Roses, Cosmo Cricket, and Lauren & Jessi Jung, and Bonnie & Camille's booth for sure! Geez!


But never fear, at least the pictures of some of the Moda Bake Shop designers signing their book, Fresh Fabric Treats, survived! Let's see, the designers we have signing the book include John, Julie, Vanessa, Kim, Natalia, and Susan (from Sweetwater). And guess what?!...



This copy is for you! That's right, one lucky Miss Print reader (see how it's inscribed and everything) will win their very own copy of Fresh Baked Treats signed by the six designers mentioned above - and don't worry about me trying to snake this copy, I already have my own (signed by the amazing Lissa too!)...but wait! There's more!


A second winner will win the two petits fours pictured above! Each petit four contains 42 2.5" squares (just like a charm pack but one quarter of the size); the two we have here are French General's Panier de Fleurs and Cosmo Cricket's Circa 1934 (yes, it's true, Cosmo Cricket is now with Moda)! These are very special little guys and are not readily available on the market - and guess what? If you're into making hexies these are the perfect size for making 1" ones!

So there ya go - two prizes for two winners and the giveaway is open worldwide! Here is what you need to do to enter:

1. Leave me a comment letting me know which booth you most liked
seeing pictures of (it doesn't even have to be one I showed) or what you
would like to see from Market in the future!

2. Leave a second comment if you are a follower, or if you become one.

3. Leave a third comment if you "Like" Miss-Print on Facebook! This is a 
new thing that I've just started and I'd like to see some of my peeps over there.
I will be announcing special things there that I may not announce on the blog. 
Just click the little "Like" button near the top of the page here, or follow my link...

There ya go - that's three ways to enter! Please remember to leave separate comments for each of the three things; you don't need to do all three but it will increase your chances of winning! Oh, and also remember that I do have comment moderation enabled so if your comment doesn't show up right away it's just because I haven't approved it yet. I will leave the giveaway open until next Tuesday (June 7th) and then I will announce the winner here on the blog!

*the giveaway is now closed!*
