Brenda Ratliff owns a quilt store, an online site, and writes a blog. She designs fun new fabrics and has a brother who won a pastry award on the Food Network and has created 3 special pie recipes for you



Alex drops by Amy Barickman's booth, Indygo Junction, at Spring Market 2015 and falls in love with the "Mad Men" style and a particular fabric based on the "Fashion Dictionary" by Mary Brooks Picken. 


TheQuiltShow.com wanted to know more about the antique quilt booth we passed at Spring Quilt Market. Carolyn & Donald Springer started Quilts from Mulberry Lane because their passion became to much to keep to themselves. 

TQS asked "What is the oldest quilt in the booth? Who is your typical customer?  How do you estimate the age of the quilt? The answers await you in the video. (We apologize for the crowd noise.)



Why did they wait up to 3 hours?? You must experience this fun event at market.





Did you know that you can find each episode of Sharon Pederson's Quilt Market Reports and every one of the quilt Puzzles all in one place?
