One of the big moments for Quilt Market for Henry Glass & Co. was the return of Janet Nesbitt. In Minneapolis she launched her new company, ONE S1STER Design with the debut of a new book, Down This Country Road and a new fabric collection, Note To Self. We will give you a sneak peak at the book with photographs from her Schoolhouse Presentation at Quilt Market. This one-day event happens the day before the show actually starts. Stay tuned for more on the blog. We will be visiting Janet in her booth next week.

Janet shared her Schoolhouse time slot with fellow Henry Glass & Co. designer, Mary Ellen Von Holt of Little Quilts.

Have a great weekend!

 [Leanne and Kaytlyn Anderson]

Welcome back to another week. The holiday weekend was lovely and the weather was gorgeous here in NYC.  We are getting over the rush of Quilt Market and are planning our next one. Quilt Market in October will be a special one for Henry Glass and its sister companies. Jaftex, the parent company of these divisions will be celebrating its 85th anniversary! Look out for some special fun events in the next few months.

Congratulations to last week's winner of the Let's Get Quilting giveaway, Cathy Scanlon. You won the bundle of Buggy Barn Basics. We will be contacting you soon!

Today we are going to give away a bundle of Clearwater Critters by Leanne Anderson of The Whole Country Caboodle.  Leanne always has a big, warm smile at Quilt Market. We love to see what she designs.

Quilt Market!

The Henry Glass & Co. crew went to Quilt Market recently and we had a great time seeing our designers, customers and friends from the quilting industry.  Thank you to all who stopped by our booth to see our collections.

Several designers had booths at the show. We are excited to see their latest work. Janet Nesbitt made her debut as the owner and designer of her new company, One S1STER Designs.

Dana Brooks of My Lazy Daisy and Barbara Jones, formerly of QuiltSoup have teamed up to start a new venture called Tickled Pink. Stay tuned for more details on this exciting new concept.

Mary Jane Carey of Holly Hill Quilt Designs had such a pretty booth. The soft colors and the shabby chic decor was very pretty.  She and Leanne have teamed up for another year of their club. We'll show you some of the projects very soon.

Leanne Anderson of The Whole Country Caboodle and her daughter Kaytlyn were at the show with their wonderful patterns and club. They made up samples from the Henry Glass book "A Flair For Fabric" and we are in love with their versions of the projects too.

Heather Mulder Peterson of Anka's Treasures is well known for her beautiful floral-inspired quilts and table runners but lately her adorable boys have been a big part of her designing perspective. We love this monster quilt!

Come back for more Quilt Market inspiration. Remember to enter the Let's Get Quilting giveaway. Have a great weekend.
