Spring Quilt Market 2017 by the numbers

I'll admit to not being the most consistent blog updater, but this year has already been a whirlwind and not in the best way.  I thought I'd pop in and give you a quick recap of some of my highlights from Spring Quilt Market 2017.

  • 2,000  - the number of followers that I finally broke on Instagram (this is totally blowing my mind)
  • 6 - the number of brand new patterns that I edited (there's more on the way)
  • 1  - the number of books that I edited 
  • 7 - the number of existing patterns that I edited (that's just the count of what's been released)
  • 2 - the number of quilts made by me that were displayed (quilted by Teresa, of course)
  • 5 - the number of bags made by me that were displayed
  • 5 - the number of pouches made by me that were displayed (+ a tutorial for making them)
  • 7  - the number of FQ bundles that I purchased
  • 4 - the number of patterns acquired (not including copies of patterns that I edited)
  • 3 - the number of schoolhouse sessions that I worked
  • 1 - the number of schoolhouse sessions that I attended
  • 21.97 - the number of miles walked from Wednesday-Saturday in the boot
  • 7.28 - the number of miles walked on Sunday without the boot
  • 1 - the number of national historic landmarks visited
  • 1 - the number of airport evacuations that experienced (it turned out to be a false alarm)
With all of that said, there were some highs and lows as expected.  I made some awesome new friends, and I had a chance to reconnect with some others.  The countdown is already on to Fall Quilt Market in Houston (157 days until Schoolhouse - eek!).  I'll be back to work tomorrow after a self-imposed 2 day break to decompress.

  1. Dreams are either dreamy to be full filled or to be broken now it depends upon the person if he has the capability to achieve or not, right now this post explains it well.
