I'm currently packing my car and preparing for the long drive from Minneapolis to Houston. This is my first Houston market. I'm a little nervous, but looking forward to vending.
If you are going to market, please stop by my booth (#425) to say hi. I would love to meet you in person.
I wanted to give you a heads up on the three new patterns I'm releasing for this market and a new mystery program.
Pre-orders are being accepted (and Checker will be carrying the patterns as well).

Let's Go Fly a Kite
Let's Go Fly a Kite Stacking Pop-Up
I've also partnered with my friend and fellow designer Joanne Harrision Hillestad of Fat Quarter Gypsy to offer a free supplemental sheet that will provide instructions on using my kites with her medium size pop-up.
Her Pop-Up pattern is incredibly popular. And they are so fun to make. I'll share more with you (and maybe a video demo of the pop-up in action) on a future blog post.

Quilt Shop Mystery Program
I am presenting at School House on "The Real Secrets Behind Mystery Quilts". If you are attending School House, please join me in Room 371C at 4:05.
In addition to providing 10 steps to a successful mystery event in your shop, I will be introducing my new mystery program. Here is a sneak peak at how it will work.
1. Purchase a minimum of ten mystery patterns (and commit to purchase additional patterns equal to participant count at the event).
2. On Point Quilter will send you a Mystery Event Package which will include:
(a) File with all the pre-work and individual clues for your event. (Just print off the number you need)
(b) Electric Quilt 7 file for creating coloration options in your shop’s fabrics.
(c) Tip sheet for a successful event.
3. Piece a sample quilt or borrow one of my trunk show quilts for your sample during the event. (Subject to availability.)
4. Provide a full pattern to participants at the end of the event.
Your pattern choices for the mystery program include:
