A Peek at Quilt Market

On Friday, there were Schoolhouses all day.  What’s a Schoolhouse?
It’s 1/4  to  1/2 hour sessions that introduce you to new books, products, fabric lines, etc.
It’s kind of like Speed Dating.

Elizabeth Hartman showing off her beauties from Patchwork City.  Look how she matches her quilt!  She’s adorbs.
