|April, me and Melissa|
This was actually the first time I met April, the owner of Modern Yardage and her husband Jay since working with their company for over two years. It also gave Melissa from The Linden Tree the chance to meet them, too, since she supports and purchases my fabric for her shop. Melissa and other friends sewed many wonderful items for me out of my fabric. A special thank you to Carole who made the lovely Poppy Hop purse for me. I love wearing it and admire the craftsmanship of her work.

April made a large cheater quilt panel out Modern Yardage labels and added funny custom names to them. It made for a fun conversation piece but also showed that they can add custom names to quilt labels, too. Here's a couple up close.
Having a booth at Quilt Market was a wonderful experience! I'm so lucky that it was held in my hometown and that Modern Yardage decided to exhibit. Next year it's in Salt Lake City which is Modern Yardage's hometown, so look for them with all new designs. Until then, shop their online retail fabric here. Contact them about wholesale orders, too.
