this is Elliot…pay attention…it's super important that you learn who he is…He is a very important part of the Quilted Fish's booth presence…and a little birdie told me that he got loose in the convention center and had a little adventure…

If you want to see documentation of that adventure, be sure and stay glued to Amanda's BLOG!!! (He promised me he would post pics soon!! 🙂 )

Of course, it wouldn't be quilt market without all of the Quilting Rock Stars…and I got a couple of pics with some of them!! 🙂

Now the girlie on the left is Deanna Pavay. She made the jacket I am wearing! So fun!!! And the girlie on the right is Jennifer Paganelli from SisBoom fabrics and just launched her new book, Girl's World. I adore both of these girlies a LOT!! I first met them on Twitter where I agreed to join an Angel challenge with Dee!! and Jennifer and I watched these eaglets being born together!! We are bonded for life!!
