fall 2013 quilt market recap

It takes a few days to recover from the quilt market hangover before I can rustle up the strength to go throw all the photos and write about it, but I’ve managed it and you’ve got to see what is coming out of all the quilting geniuses lately. Let’s tell this story through pictures. Though oddly somehow I got no pictures of Lizzy House, which is a shame because every day she wore an adorable dress made of her upcoming fabric line Catnap, which you can probably see on Instagram. Anyway, on with the show.

There are some great fresh voices in fabric these days, like Carolyn Friedlander. She really has a unique voice and we are so excited to get her Botanics collection in soon.

Sarah Jane is another standout among fabric designers. Her lines always evoke the charming carefree happiness of childhood without being childish. Her upcoming line Wee Wander depicts tree-climbing, horse-riding, lightning bug-chasing days that are so irresistable, I sure hope people aren’t scared to use these fabrics for things other than just kids’ quilts.

The darling Jeni Baker was inspired by vintage sheets for her future collection, Dreamin’ Vintage. This one’s several months out but we are already dreaming about it!

Some really exciting news, which just shows how much this industry is progressing, is the new Cotton & Steel division of RJR fabrics spearheaded by former Kokka designer Melody Miller and featuring some amazing designers. We will surely be watching this closely and you’ll hear about it when these fabrics start coming into the shop!

Camille Roskelley represented in the Moda booth and the Bonnie & Cammile fabric lines just keep getting better, if that’s even possible. Their spring collection is April Showers and Camille’s super freaking adorable mini quilts were one of the favorite things I saw at market.

I have been eyeing her Raincheck quilt and you can be sure we’ll have kits for this one when April Showers arrives in the Spring!


New pattern designs are always exciting too. Green Bee patterns’ booth was so clever.

So many great quilts at Prairie Grass Patterns’ booth, but this row quilt was probably my fave (and features Botanics).  Watch for new patterns from these designers and more to be coming into Suppose.

Quilt Market has an amazing amount of inspiration, which we can hopefully pass a fraction of onto you in the store. From simple color palettes…

…to the Quilt Festival exhibits, there is so much color, pattern, & design inspiration.

Roses In The Window

If you’re at all like me, you might sometimes get overwhelmed looking at other peoples’ creations and think about how you just don’t have the time and patience to do anything like that. I hope we can remember that we don’t have to make anything like anything else and to turn all this inspiration into our own version of awesome.

We have tons more photos of the show and the quilt exhibits that you won’t want to miss right HERE on Flickr. But I just had to include this one first, because although I would probably never make anything like this, it just makes me smile insanely to look at it!

    CBS News senior correspondent John Miller says the militants behind the attack on the U.S. consulate remain unidentified, but the focus is currently on two Libyan groups, Ansar al-Sharia and the Abdul Rahman Brigades. These are just two of the militant Islamic groups which have risen to prominence in Libya since the end of Muammar Qaddafi’s decades-long reign.
