Last year Caroline Devoy was an exhibitor at the International Quilt Market. Her booth won best new exhibitor – not an easy feat with all the talented people exhibiting at the Market! Don’t you love this booth and wouldn’t it make the cutest kids room? The paints used: Sherwin Williams Interactive Cream (SW 6113), Exciting Orange (SW 6647) and Tango (SW 6649). The orange stripes sure make the decor pop. Caroline is thinking about redoing her daughters room like her booth – can’t wait for those pictures.
Jessica Jones designed the booth, Caroline’s husband and two friends built the structure. Caroline painted and decorated (with the help of her friends and employees). What a team! Portia from Perdoozy sent the darling apron for the show and her friend from BlueBlossomGirl sent the bag on the wall. Darling!
The ribbons in the frame are Patty Young’s new Andalucia ribbons that coordinate with her new fabric line for Michael Miller. The fabric and ribbon are both tremendous and she got a great response at market. Go Patty! Yes, that is a black plastic frame from Ikea, which was spray painted beige.
Caroline is 42 and the mother of a 2-year-old. She started her business in August of 2001 to design purses and it has morphed into jcaroline creative, web retailer of fabrics and ribbon and has now morphed into her own products. Her mother is an expert sewer and was the original creative home decorator (sheets on the wall, you name it) and taught Caroline. Caroline is an accountant by training, but never really dug it. Except the creative part. J Love fabrics and color. And creating things. Check out her creative blog jcaroline.typepad.com
