Post Houston Quilt Market Post

The show, for those who attended, ended yesterday but for many who flew into Houston last week, the journey home is going to be a long and arduous one. I wish everyone safe travels and friends and family awaiting them at their journey's end.

I did not attend quilt market at all this year yet I was glued to the computer scouring the Internet for photos of the Michael Miller Fabrics booth, happenings of what ended up being - thankfully - an uneventful tsunami warning on Saturday evening, and of course the talk of the decade - Sandy the Frankenstorm.

I obtained a couple of pictures of two of the many quilts that were displayed in the MMF booth - and these two, along wth several others either used Mirror Ball Dot exclusively in the quilt, as a focus print or as a unique blender to add some pizzazz.

So, without further ado…
The quilt above and close-up image below are from Emily Herrick of Crazy Old Ladies website. She's a quilter and designer, and licensee for Michael Miller Fabrics. As you can see Emily uses the Mirror Ball Dot as her "focus print" and I would guarantee that the solid white background fabric is Cotton Couture from Michael Miller Fabrics.

Mirror Ball Dot Color Play uses Mirror Ball Dot exclusively in this quilt and is made of fat quarters of MBD with the exception of the white, which uses 1-1/4 yards. It's a free download on the Michael Miller Fabrics site or by clicking the link.

Designed, pieced and quilted by Marinda Stewart.

Psst... a little secret - Marinda is responsible for many of the quilts shown and promoted by Michael Miller Fabrics. She is an incredible talent and nurturing mentor and really great friend!!!! Check out her book Punch Needle: The Complete Guide at Amazon, and oh, BTW, she's currently penning the companion book
