Fall Quilt Market 2016: Favorite Collections

While we were constantly surrounded by dozens of gorgeous collections all weekend, it was hard to pick just one as our favorite! We saw everything including bright, retro prints, to pastel, soft patterns – and everything in between! Although so many new things caught our eye, each of us picked our favorite collection from the weekend!
Amanda loved the J is for Jeep collection by Riley Blake Designs! The collection comes in three fun colors: pink, blue, and green.  The designs are fun and playful prints, perfect for a variety of projects!

Whitney chose the Wonderland collection by Rifle Paper Co. for Cotton + Steel. “Alice in Wonderland” is one of her favorite books, and the daring prints in this collection take you right back into the pages of the illustrations!

Kevin picked Sugar Plum Christmas by Bunny Hill Designs for Moda Fabrics. The collection features charming patterns, with traditional Christmas colors softened by pinks, browns, and grays.

Keeping with the theme of Christmas, Codi chose Merrily by Gingiber for Moda Fabrics! Her favorite is that adorable little deer panel, that Stacie came up with in her sketchbook during Spring Quilt Market!

Kimberly chose Sugar Pie by Lella Boutique for Moda Fabrics. The sweet colors remind you of your favorite dessert and the patterns are so sweet and playful!

Nova chose Friedlander by Carolyn Friedlander for Robert Kaufman. She loves the classic prints and beautiful colors intermixed in the collection.
All of these collections and more will be popping up on our new arrivals page soon! Keep your eye out for our weekly Fresh Finds post to see if any of the collections that you’ve had your eye on has made it onto the FQS site!
