Spring Quilt Market 2018: Saturday

We can’t believe the last day of Quilt Market is already here! Between meetings and appointments, we finished walking the show to make sure we didn’t miss anything. Hope you were able to experience the fun at Quilt Market through our Instagram posts and stories. We loved meeting up with old friends and making new ones and want to thank Portland for an amazing Quilt Market experience!

Here are some of the things we were able to catch on our last day at Spring Quilt Market 2018:

The theme for this year’s Moda booth was Make Yourself at Home with Moda, featuring farm, gingham and everything cozy! We got a look at the capsets of their newest collections and cannot wait to get our hands on them when they get into the store!

We met with Betsy Chutchian, whose booth showcased her newest collection Harriet’s Handwork!

Badda Bing, Me and My Sister Designs is here! This fun collection is great for quilts, textiles, and even the Jelly Roll Rug!

The dynamic Sherri & Chelsi duo’s booth was amazing and featured their new collection, Clover Hollow!

We visited Joanna of Fig Tree Quilts’ booth to check out her newest collection, Farmhouse II!

At the Riley Blake Booth, we saw the Harry & Alice collection by Amanda Herring and the Simply Happy collection by Dodi Lee Poulsen!

Katarina Roccella showed us her amazing new collection, Decadence, filled with feathers, flowers and whimsy!

We love seeing all the bright, fun colors of thread from Aurifil thread!

We were taken to a whole new world with the Camelot Fabric’s Disney Princess themed quilt!

The Woodland Rose Quilt from Lecien definitely got us ready for spring!

And the gorgeous wall at the RJR Fabrics booth was just too pretty not to look at!

We got to see the new Cuddle and Embrace Double Gauze lines (and their versatility) at the Shannon Fabrics booth!

Got into the spirit of the outdoors with Heather Givans’ collection Night Hike!

We got a chance to see one of our favorite notion’s designer, Doohikey Designs! Shari is now proud to announce that her notions are all made in the US!

And with autumn right around the corner, this quilt by Buttermilk Basin is just perfect!

Darlene Zimmerman’s newest collection Penny’s Dollhouse was just darling!

We got to see the newest from Dear Stella Design too!

And Sherri of This & That Pattern Company showcased her newest Block of the Month Book with It’s Sew Emma, The Garden Sampler!

We swung by the Maywood Studio booth and did a livestream with KimberBell, who showed us her newest collection, Broomhilda’s Bakery, and her Orange Pop Ruler Set!

And finally, we got to see the gorgeous and vibrant fabrics from Allison Glass!
