I have just returned from my first US Quilt Market as a fabric designer for Ella Blue Fabrics.
It was a fabulous 3 days full of meeting customers, other designers and getting inspired!

Here is some photos of my booth.

It is a bit of a challenge designing a booth in Australia and then making it happen when we arrive off the plane. Ikea comes in very handy as we can make decisions on
furniture and actually see it and then cross our fingers that it will be in stock at the Houston Ikea.

Here's a photo of Rosalie Quinlan, the other Ella Blue designer, and I on the Ella Blue booth.
Another photo my Mum took so sorry for the quality.

I was lucky enough to have some dresses made by Cathi from Gertrude Made.
She designs and creates beautiful vintage style dresses usually from vintage sheets and fabric.
However she made some from The Linen Cupboard to help showoff my fabrics on my booth.
I just love this dress so lucky it fits me perfectly. Thanks so much Cathi!

 I can't wait to go next year and maybe I will make it to a Spring Market too!
Here's some more photos of my booth.

The fabulous fabric tea set you can see in the next photo is a design from Jodie from RicRac.
you can purchase the pattern here,

I had fun making some old school fabric coathangers. I used to have a selection of these that had been given as gifts or made by my mum. I used to put my very special dresses on them. I will use these Linen Cupboard ones for my Linen Cupboard desses!

You can also see in the background of the next photo my book shelf. I wanted to create a faux linen cupboard look. My mum got busy and sewed hems on the complete range of The Linen Cupboard so they could be folded around some cardboard to give the look of folded linen. I was very happy with the result.

I also bought some Ball Mason jars and filled them with yo-yos made from The Linen Cupboard.
The blocks on the shelves are soaps wrapped in fabric. They made my booth smell delicious!

I also made some super sweet apple pin cushions with yummy felt leaves.
