The last few weeks (months, really) at my house have been full of a whole lot of this:
a little of this:
and perhaps a bit too much of this:
All of that was in preparation for Quilt Market this weekend! Ray and I arrived in Kansas City late in the afternoon yesterday. Booth setup has started and will continue (with the help of a few wonderful local friends–more about them later) through today.
We have a fun little theme going on with the booth, and it fits my personality very nicely. The centerpiece of the whole thing started out this way:
Have any idea what we might have turned those random pieces into? Why don’t we have a little contest? I have seven new patterns that I’ve been working furiously to finish for Market. I’ll be revealing them over the next couple of weeks. Would you like to get a set of them for free? Just leave a comment on this post telling me what your guess is to the very cool project we created with this set of pieces. I’ll check back in before bedtime tonight and pick a random winner from those who guess correctly, and I’ll reveal the answer with a picture (as long as things go as planned).
Oh, and for the record, yes, I do eat chocolate chips out of the bag for a chocolate fix whenever necessary.

I’m no good at guessing things, but good luck at Market!!! I’m so excited for you and your new patterns. 🙂
Vita Wright says
I have no idea so I am just guessing but it looks like some sort of rain catching, self watering device. I just love you patterns and own most of them and can’t wait to see what is new!
no idea, but I’m positive it’s FABULOUS!

Is it some sort of miniature umbrella table? I’m not good at guessing either. Enjoy quilt market and I look forward to seeing your newest line of patterns.
I don’t know either. A tree of some sort?
Have fun at Quilt Market!

A tree or topiary?
I can’t wait to see the new patterns! Some of your oldies have graced my machine lately and find them amazingly easy to finish! I am guessing a lamp of some sort…probably not…
Allison M. says
A Narnian lamppost? lol I bet you’re having a great time! Congratulations on making it BIG! 🙂
A modern chandelier? Have a great time!
well, a narnian lamppost would be pretty cool! 🙂 maybe an industrial looking quilt stand? Or a black metal tree? or a crazy rocketship? Have fun at the quilt market!! 🙂
Eating chocolate chips out of a bag is how I get through my bad days!
Are you making an apple tree?
Can’t wait to see the new patterns and how your booth turns out!
Looks like it might be a super cool planter with varying levels…and glad to see i’m not the only one who does the chocolate chip thing!
A wind chime or a clothesline???
Is it a tiered stand? I have been staring at that picture for a long time and that is my best guess. Have fun at the market.
is it a lamp in a flower pot?
some type of stand – something to display your patterns I would imagine – show us the finished project when it was done – love to win your patterns to sew for my grandbabies
My best guess is a tree. Maybe then bendy piece is for a branch? Tricky. Have fun!
It’s a chocolate chip tree that looks like Brussels sprouts so the kids won’t eat them! haha, I have no idea. 🙂 But look forward to finding out and seeing your new patterns!
An old-fashioned pot belly wood stove?
I hope you have a great Market!
