Michael Miller goes to Quilt Market!!

Hey crafty friends... we are in FULL QUILT MARKET MODE over here! Lots of saturated color, pom poms, tassels, sparkle and stacks of fabric! My desk is a mess but at least it's a pretty mess :) We can't wait to see you at Quilt Market! If you're not going, you can follow along on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter... I might even do some live Facebook! Ahhhhhh!
We're featuring Indian Summer in our booth... you'll have to stay tuned for the final reveal!
Indian Summer is featured in the fat 1/4 bundle above and in the photo below...
Here's the current state of my desk... wish I could keep it like this!
Can we talk about pom poms for a minute?? I am OBSESSED!! If you haven't already, you MUST buy yourself a pom pom maker (found ours at Michael's) So fun!!
 Here we are with our pom pom wall hanging... 
 **Thanks Robin xxooxoxo! 

Of course,it wouldn't be MMF Quilt Market without some sparkle! 
**I can always depend on Karen to add sparkle to props!

Tassels are fun to make as well... and you don't need a tool to make them! Here's a tutorial--> TASSELS!

We have one more secret project that we're revealing at market... We're working with Tamara Kate, Giuseppe Ribaudo (aka Giucy Giuce), Stephanie Kendron (of Modern Sewciety) and Jessee Maloney (aka Art School Dropout) to create something beautiful! Here's a sneak peek!
If you're going to be in Houston, visit us at Schoolhouse and in Booth 2634. We have a lot to share with you!
Have a crafty weekend and see you in Texas (or live online)!
