slc spring quilt market: day 2
Friday is the first day that the show floor is open and we get to see the amazingly constructed booths of our favorite fabric & pattern designers, plus every new notion inventor and whatsit promoter. A few highlights…
Seeing Annela Hoey‘s embroidery in person! Her newest line for Moda, Little Apples, will be in the store this September.
Quilt from new Michael Miller designer Sara Jane, who also does the most adorable embroidery and has some sweet children’s prints coming soon.
Ok, so not fabric related, but I caught Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head in a tiff at the deli where we had lunch.
In a small exhibit we found this small quilt with the smallest of paper pieced compass points. I am in complete awe!
New patterns, fabrics, and stichery patterns from Anna Maria Horner. Yummm.
Got to chat with the lady herself for a bit.
And of course I geeked out at Tula Pink‘s booth.
Solids are really getting their due and are featured in this cute display from Kona Cottons.
More with solids. Always love a good rainbow quilt! If you want to be more sophis you can call it a color wheel quilt. Yet more quilting by the genius Angela Walters, who also has done market quilts for Tula Pink & Lizzy House (among many more).
What? This is pieced and appliqued entirely with minky/cuddle fabric!
Local pattern designer Jen Giddens had a booth at market for the first time and it looks so good! Not only does she have new bag patterns out soon, but she designed all the fabrics in these bags as well.
Kaffe Fassett has a new book coming out of his quilts in Sweden! (If you know me, you might be able to imagine the squeal elicited by the Sweden part.) And I’m dying to make this new design using his shot cottons and stripes.
Phew! 2 more days… more to come!
