jessee_artschooldropout I came home from #quiltmarket SUPER sick (big surprise right?) it didn't hit me bad until the last day luckily. But that means I've spent the last four days laying around completely useless for the most part. My lungs just won't let me move much. ---- With some help I did take apart, and photograph, a couple of the fabric bundles that came home with me! The first bundle is up on the blog today. It's @riflepaperco 's much anticipated collaboration with @cottonandsteel and its called Les Fleurs / #lesfleurs. It was tough showing just how rich the colors are, and I probably shouldn't have tried, but it really makes my blog nice and pretty looking right now. 🏻 link in profile.

jessee_artschooldropout I took a few good shots of the @lizzyhouse banner I made for @andoverfabrics before shipping it off. I posted them up on my blog while I was gone, so if your interested in them the link is in my profile! Due to angles and a mishap with shipping, I couldn't get that great of a shot of it actually at #quiltmarket 🏻 #jesseemakesquiltsnow 2d

jessee_artschooldropout One of my favorite booths to stop at every single #quiltmarket is the @cloverusa booth. This year was no disappointment. I watched a handful of demos showcasing some new hemming tools (that I'll be doing a tutorial for next month because they are AMAZING) a new style compass, some other pressing tools and more. ---- I was also shown the newest member of the wonder clip family. THE MINI WONDER CLIP! It has a tapered tip to help with small piecing both hand and machine, yet it still has the flat bottom with labeled measurements. It comes in a small pack of 25 or a large box of 100 that's divided in five sections for the five colors. The colors are great for labeling and dividing up different pieces. 🏻 as you can tell, I am in love with these little plastic things!! They will be available for purchase late next month anywhere wonder clips might be sold! #cloverusa #wonderclips #miniwonderclips 3d

jessee_artschooldropout Another one of my favorite booths from #quiltmarket was @iamlunasol 's for her line also name #Iamlunasol with @windhamfabrics . This photo doesn't show just how vibrant/saturated the colors truly are. I bought a fat quarter bundle and will be showing it off later in the week. Also, how great is it that I got a Sailor Moon pose? 🏻 thank you @iamlunasol !! #springquiltmarket2016 #windhamfabrics 4d

jessee_artschooldropout How perfect is the new line from @bijoulovely ?! It's called Brush Strokes and is with @cloud9fabrics . The booth was so bright and colorful, I loved it. I'm very fond of that black and white print and it's obviously been added to my must buy list. #quiltmarket #springquiltmarket2016 4d
  •   ecoffeedrinker Wow. These remind me of favorite corduroys in the 80s! They were that same mint green with those sprinkles of color! 4d
  •   mrsjennyryan Soooo fresh and cute and 80s! 4d

jessee_artschooldropout I paid for wifi on the plane because the kids all around me are kicking, wiggling and being loud (I'm a parent, I get that it can't be helped) so now I get to show pretty pictures like this one of the #hexies I'm working on while sitting here. #jesseemakesquiltsnow #hexiesonthego 5d
  •   ali_feeney I want to make some hexie pieces these look really nice! 5d
  •   pageandpixel Some serious biz! 5d
  •   crafty_abby I love looking at your hexies! I never saw myself hand piecing but your pictures inspired me and I'm working on a hexie I spy quilt. Love your fabrics! 5d

jessee_artschooldropout Today on the @sizzix blog I share this trio of pouches! I used their NEW 8" half oval die that they announced at #quiltmarket . The full tutorial is coming later this summer. Link in @sizzix_quilting 's profile. 🏻🏻 @robertkaufman #sizzix #sizzixquilting 6d

jessee_artschooldropout I am in love with this people print from the Basic Grey line from @modafabrics ! It comes in a few color ways, but this is my favorite. The scales is perfect too!! I asked and it will be released Fall 2016. I plan on purchasing a yard because I think this needs to show up randomly in my more scrappy looking pieces. #quiltmarket #springquiltmarket2016 #modafabrics 6d

jessee_artschooldropout The new line Boardwalk Delight from @made_everyday is awesome. The colors are all the right colors and super vibrant. Plus it comes in other substrates. I already have plans for some of these prints. 🏻 @artgalleryfabrics #artgalleryfabrics #boardwalkdelightsfabric #agflimitededition 7d

jessee_artschooldropout I am absolutely in love with the new Finding Dory fabric from @camelot_fabrics ! I like the flat illustrated design they used instead of the highly detailed stuff from the movie. I'm thinking Coraline will be needing a dress or two out of this stuff. #quiltmarket #springquiltmarket2016 #camelotfabrics 1w

jessee_artschooldropout I had the pleasure of meeting the super sweet @heatherjonesstudio today! Her new line Color Dash (with @robertkaufman) is awesome! I picked up some precuts and fat quarters to make some projects for myself!! If you have the same taste in fabric as me, then you'll love this line too. 🏻 #quiltmarket #springquiltmarket2016 #robertkaufmanfabrics #heatherjonesstudio 1w

jessee_artschooldropout The #QuiltMarket travel adventures begin!! So far Ive only have had my carry-on searched for explosives. (Cards against humanity shows as the same color as explosives. Fun fact.) I think I'm off to a good start guys!! 🏻 1w
  •   jessee_artschooldropout @sewpixie I do non-stop as often as I can now. After the Boulder to Seattle fiasco, and then being left in Milwaukee instead of Minneapolis, I'm done with layovers. I'm leaving a day earlier and also later in the day than I normally do, just so I can have a non stop flight!!! 1w

jessee_artschooldropout I just renewed the Art School Dropout domain name again. So that means my business and I have been in a relationship for 13 years!
I've changed what I've made and how I've run things over the years, but my aesthetic and name is still the same.
Once I get back from market, I will be running a giveaway to celebrate, but in the meantime my small handful of patterns will be 40% off until the end of the month! That means the #ringofcoffins will be around $1.75 and the #spinningicosahedronquilt is around $6. Just follow the link in my profile and use the code "ASD13" during checkout!
Thank you to everyone who has helped over the years and made it possible to be self employed this long!!

jessee_artschooldropout It was raining too hard for our Girl Scouts Mom & Me hike on the C&O canal/Potomac river, so instead we went roller skating! That's my husband and Coraline on the left!
I spent a big chunk of my younger years roller skating at rinks, mostly in Chincoteague, MD. I had a sweet pair of custom skates and everything. I miss it. I refrained from skating today because I'm so clumsy lately that I didn't want to break anything before traveling.
My husband frequents skate parks almost weekly these days, so he took over today. He's the opposite of clumsy. 🏻🏻
