It's a Bookazine!

Cherie Shaeffer owner of "Quilts in the Attic" and and Paula Barnes of "Bonnie Blue Quilts," were talking about our magazine and coined the new phrase, "bookazine."  Don'tcha just love it?  I think that name might stick...thanks Cherie and Paula!

We are having a wonderful time at Market, and are enjoying Salt Lake City.  Jeni and I found a really neat restaurant, "The Inferno Cantina," around the corner from the convention center on Pierpoint Street-or-Drive-or something.  The food is authentic (or nearly authentic) Mexican, really really really good, and the atmosphere is calm and pleasant.  They play great American music, and the decor is super fun!



Salt Lake City is a beautiful, clean, and fun town.  All the Utah folks we've met this weekend are so nice!  Here is a photo of one little corner of the town.  Love those mountains!



Jeni took a little break from the booth this afternoon and returned with this cute little sample from the Slice booth.  She knows I love their Riley Blake Hootie Hoot samples.  I have the fabric to make a quilt for my little grandson who is now two months old.  I bought the fabric at Fall Market in Houston and haven't started the quilt.  Somehow holding a full-time job AND publishing a magazine doesn't leave room for making quilts.  Here are photos of the sample AND of my handsome little Julian.  I bet he's growing while I'm away at Market.

We are at Spring International Quilt Market!

We are at Spring Quilt Market in Salt Lake City Utah! It is beautiful here! I have a couple shots of our booth for you to see, and maybe more pictures soon! It is fun, but also long days of standing and lots of walking! We can't wait for you all to see the Fall Issue photographs! Oh, I guess we can't wait to see them too! We will see them next week and pick what we like for the next issue! Hope you all are getting your projects made from the first issue because July is just around the corner!  Don't forget to check the corrections page on the website!
