Pillow Talk

My Moda Pillow


Last October I was in Houston for
International Quilt Market.  This is
a trade show for the quilt industry.


Sadly, I only have a few photos
because less than a half hour into
the show, I met the button guy and
he had me so enthralled with the
story of how he got the antiques shown
above that I dropped my camera ~ on
the concrete floor and destroyed it.
Does anyone know what they are?


The day before Quilt Market opens
is a day where you go to various lectures
lasting either 15 or 30 minutes and find
out about new fabric, patterns, tools, etc.
The Moda fabric lecture was called Pillow
Talk and each of their designers had to
make a pillow that told something about
themselves.  After the lecture we were
given the fabric hankie above and at Market
the next day we visited with all the designers
and they stamped our fabric with a design.


When I got home I didn't know
what to do with the hankie.  So since
the Moda theme was Pillow Talk, I
decided to make a pillow with it.  Now it
is on the day bed in my studio and
when I have worked too long,
I use it to take a cat nap...
