vintage quilts for sale

Yesterday I flew down to Houston to catch the International Quilt Show. It's a great resource for childrenswear designers. There are a ton of fabric vendors from around the world who show. I was shopping for fabrics for my Fall/Winter 2011 collection and gravitated towards all the amazing Japanese florals. So my palette for next fall is black, grey, cranberry, navy and pink-with a little black gingham thrown in. I was so inspired that I sketched out the whole collection this morning. I do wish I had time to quilt. I made one for Miette when I was on hospital bed rest. I totally owe one to Amelie. Good thing I am saving all my vintage fabric scraps (I have garbage bags full) for when I do get some free time
