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.
