Quilt Market Part 1

Ok, let’s get this show on the road.  As I said in the last post, I didn’t get a lot of photos that I wish I had — it was just so busy.  Plus, in the past, I’ve always been helping Kellie, so it was possible to get photos of booths before market opened — without all the people in them.  Some of these photos are at weird angles — that means that someone was in the way, making it hard to get a good straight on shot.

So, off the bat, the Moda booth that you’ve probably seen everywhere by now.  All those leaves were so pretty.

Moda did an interesting thing this year with their designers.  Rather than have them each have full booths, they had mini-spaces next to each other.  Here are Sweetwater and Bunny Hill.  What a relief this must have been for their designers — much less work in a mini-booth.

Riley Blake.  Those chevrons have popularity staying power.

The modkid booth was really cute.

I love her new fabric — all those letters.  That colored alphabet that is third from the bottom in the quilt reminds me of an old Ikea print that I never managed to find.

Mo Bedell’s pretty booth.  I think maybe she got an award for her booth?

Heather Bailey did a fun thing with the wall of her booth.  This was a giant embroidery done with yarn. She also had real, live sod on the floor of her booth — can you see it?  I would have liked to see that on Sunday afternoon.  Did they water it every day LOL?

This is a quilt in The Quilted Fish booth.  There were a lot of people at the front of this booth, so I had to take pictures of the side walls.  That cute little wall hanging to the left was made by Stephanie.  I was so sad that I didn’t get a bigger picture of it.  I’ll bet she’ll post a better picture soon.

Another pretty quilt in The Quilted Fish booth.  And I missed the pretty little quilt by Jana — maybe she’ll post it on her blog too.

This was an adorable booth.  Hudson’s Holidays Designs.  I’d never heard of her, but her stuff sure is cute.

I loved this booth.  Busy Bee Quilt Designs.  Check out the famous Union Jack quilt in black and whites.  And I love that circle quilt on the couch too.  I need a quilt in those colors for our family room.

Ok, that’s enough for now. I saved the best for last — Next time!

    well well, you do such a nice job with your reports that it’s almost as though we were there! in the future, however, we would like the first report on the Monday following market and the following report on Tuesday. Please make a note of it.
    hope you’re off having fun in some faraway place.

  15. So much eye candy. That Heather Bailey. She is just plain tricky. Love that big embroidery work. Heather Bailey. Heather Ross. Maybe I will change my name to Heather. They seem to have it going on. :-)

  16. Beautiful pictures! I guess I’m out of the quilting loop, I haven’t seen many pictures from market. I love the b&w union jack!

  17. Ooh, so good to see!! Thank you for sharing.

    Great, great photos I had to come back again!

  19. Oh lucky you! So much inspiration, and to get to see it all in person. :) Thanks for sharing it with us. I am in love with Heather Bailey’s embroidered wall. What a creative idea, and so beautiful. Love it! Which booth was your favorite?


  20. Trust Heather to come up with something really unique. I do like Busy Bee stuff. Good to see what happened. I’m somewhat surprised that Bunny Hill didn’t have a full sized booth. They did smaller things, maybe like Riley Blake.

  21. Thanks for sharing your photos. Lots I hadn’t seen before. Thanks for the shout out, too! :-) Looks like fun!
