Andover Fabrics in Houston for Fall Quilt Market 2010

Yes, I know I don't sell Andover Fabrics....but I can't help myself.  Somehow I always seem to end up in their Schoolhouse Presentations.  Why?  Because the Andover Crew have such a good time.  There is always tons of laughter and camera's flashing everywhere.  It is not quite a Comedy Club Show.....but real darn close....and they don't even try to be funny or entertaining....they just ARE!!! 

I also know all of you want to see photos of Market.....and I know you'll love these new I'm just keeping (myself) the blog readers happy!!! :)

This Schoolhouse Presentation was held at 4:55 and was titled, "Newest of the New" and Gail Kessler was the presenter. you go :)


I have no idea!!
Nope, don't know this one either?  Yikes....soooo sorry.
Still Clueless....but I know you are not surprised...just shoot me  - with a chocolate filled squirt gun please!
What can I say?

 I know I could have written down all the designers names for the quilts above.....and I may have even gotten some of them wrong....but you know what?  They are all Andover if you just have to have one of them.....hike on over and tell them you have to have it....and I'm sure they'll tell you where you can get it....I'm sure the one's I don't know are not out yet...probably in May 2011.

With that being said.....I know both Mrs. Rosemary and I would have quite possibly trampled healthy people to get our hands on "Dem Bones" fabric by Carol Eldridge.  The minute I saw these I flipped out of my chair and went swinging through the place like a dire need of a banana.  I MUST have some of  DEM BONES......I can't remember a time that I saw fabric that owned me.... until now.

I know I'm taking a big risk by showing everyone these fabrics, they could be sold out fast. 

I have no idea why these fabrics hit me like they do.....but I crack up looking at them....a skeleton in a bikini?  Poky legs with stockings on a skeleton?  I'm in LOVE!!! This is serious.....I might even run over Brint-the Scissor Man to get my hands on some of this fabric....that is just so sad.  I'm possessed, I know.

I hope everyone at Andover Fabrics forgives my imperfections and inability to document every detail!   If you must....shoot me- with a cannon filled with Dem Bones Fat Quarter Bundles....lots of them....just in case you miss the first time!!!  Oh yeah baby :)

Transfixed Smiles,


  1. Very cute. Love dem bones fabric too. Thanks for sharing insights!


  2. Those are fun fabrics, not sure if I would use them though, lol. I was watching a video on the vagabond, nice machine and love what it does, but seeing a lot of accessories that need to go with it;)


  3. Bwahahahahaahahahahha! I'm digging those "Swoon" quilts. Gorgeous!

    Dem Bones is an adorable line! I bet it will be a hit! I love it's sense of humor!

  4. Wow! Those are amazing quilts!
    I really like Dem Bones! They are very cute not creepy!

  5. You've hit the nail on the head--Dem Bones owned me right away too! A little detective work shows that they will be released in May, 2011. I don't know, that might not be enough time for me to have something made for Halloween... ☺
