It has been rather frantic at Red Pepper Quilts HQ this week. Not only have we just enjoyed a four day weekend, but I am preparing for the Sisters' Market.
Saturday - November 7th, 2009
Brunswick Town Hall
233 Sydney Road
It was a spur of the moment decision to attend, and a lucky break saw to it that a position became available. So at the last minute, I have been preparing tickets, labels, business cards, flyers, displays, packaging, so much to do! The printer has been slurping up the ink, the accountants have been calculating costs with a raised eyebrow, and I have forged ahead regardless.
The motto for market quilts is definitely "keeping it simple", and allowing the fabric colors and prints to speak for themselves. I thoroughly enjoyed choosing the fabrics for this quilt; the initial color inspiration being the large flower print by Kokka fabrics which is featured on the front and used as backing.
This quilt is ready for market day!
If you are in Melbourne this Saturday, be sure to visit the Sisters' Market, and come and say hello. I would love to meet you all! Check out the list of stallholders - RPQ is going to be in the company of some very talented and creative people! Thoroughly daunting but also very exciting!
