Fall Quilt Market 2009: Michael Miller — Designers

Sandi HendersonSandi Henderson introduces her new Meadowsweet

I’d like to think my lack of pictures from the Michael Miller designers’ booths indicates that I was entranced by the gorgeous designs and riot of rich, happy color, and was just living in the moment. But I was entranced by everyone I covered, so that’s no excuse. I have distinct memories of taking more pictures of Sandi Henderson’s creations, but the memories must have been implanted because the images are nowhere to be found. Ah well, chalk it up to fatigue/overstimulation!

Fortunately, Jona (Fabritopia) covered the MM designer booths thoroughly, including Pillow & Maxfield and Patty Young. Ms. Ever Kelly recaps here and here. Patty Young recaps her Schoolhouse session, gives the full tour of her booth, and shows compromising (OK, not really) party shots from Fabric 2.0 and the Michael Miller anniversary party here. Sandi has plenty of video of her favorite designers and pictures of her booth. And her famous shoes. Oh, those shoes! She has also posted a (free) fabric pinwheel pattern — so cute and easy.

I did manage to document Paula Prass’ booth, so there’s hope for me yet.

I’ll do better next time, I swear! If not, I’ll eat my Lil Chef hat.

    Just an idea for next year, fell free to ignore of course. Why not set a minimum of photos per booth? Say 10. At each booth look at the camera say I’m on picture 36 – can’t leave until I’m at 46.

  2. Terri says:

    I love that 60′s shirt, by chance is there a pattern coming out for it?

  3. [...] blog, Modkid Boutique. She is a pattern designer I have admired for awhile now, and is mentioned in True Up’s post about Michael Miller’s designers at the Fall Quilt Market. I stumbled onto Patty’s work [...]
